The owners of this contemporary kitchen have taken colour and design inspiration from one of their favourite nightclubs in Manchester to inject life and definition into their new kitchen. The extended glass area has created a welcoming, bright open-plan environment, making the perfect contemporary family space. Being situated at the back of the house the extension has created a free flowing link between the kitchen and the garden, ideal for the owners who wanted a communal kitchen garden area to entertain guests.
Matt white surfaces and walls are extenuated by painted metalwork in a contrasting black shade making the stainless steel cooker and extractor distinctive. A splashback of feature tiles along the wall add interest to an otherwise plain scheme and help enhance the large bookshelf. The long shelf carved out of the wall acts both as a pretty feature and a handy storage unit for books and kitchen utensils, making the most of the large space.
This oak dining table is perfectly positioned in the side-return to save taking up too much space, whilst still having an open view of the garden. White Eames style chairs maintain the airy, contemporary feel. A tall metal cupboard behind painted matt black disguises structural metalwork behind. “We considered concealing the structural pillar but technically it was tricky so we made a feature of it instead”. Beams like this are an iconic part of the well know Hacienda club.
The L shape cabinets in this open-plan kitchen allow for plenty of storage without taking up too much floor space. This makes the most of the extended area, leaving it spacious and bright. Large glass windows are ultra modern and let in plenty of light. An integrated wine fridge has been disguised to match the units enhancing the contemporary style.
Small square cupboards above the sink make a practical larder and storage for crockery and enhance the geometric feel of the kitchen. Bright yellow pendant lights become a feature next to this neutral design, adding colour and drawing attention to the bar area.
Long raised beds are joined to the house work as a link between the kitchen and the garden bringing an element of the outside into the overall kitchen area.The glass ceilings and bright yellow accessories add to the summery look and make the entire kitchen a botanical space for stylish entertaining.
