This compact kitchen has been designed around a generously sized angular peninsula. Bespoke Shaker-style tulipwood cabinetry has been painted in a neutral shade to keep this small space feeling light and bright. With flecks of red in the granite worktops echoing the colours elsewhere, the kitchen is not just an elegant room to relax in, but a well-planned space to cook in.
Open shelving is painted in deep red to create a vibrant contrast to the pale cabinetry. Using chunky open shelves for storage instead of wall units keeps a sense of spaciousness. Below, a mirrored splashback reflects beams of light from spots below the shelves around the room.
The owner simply has to pull back the bi-fold doors of this hard-working dresser-style cabinet to access the crockery, freestanding microwave and even a laptop. The back panel has been painted in a deep red to make a feature of it.
