A large wine cooler is situated near the seating area, while the oven and microwave are grouped together close to the hob and wet area to create a working triangle. The units are topped with off-white composite worktops and contrast with the cabinets. Not only user-friendly, with its separate seating booth, it's also a very sociable place.

The round breakfast bar has been created using Rose Cracked Ice Glass. It's produced from three layers of glass, which, when cut to shape, shatters the inner pane creating a crackled effect.
