Open House: A modern monochrome kitchen

  • Looking for kitchen ideas? This minimalist, monochrome space makes a sleek statement in this 4-bedroom, Victorian house in West London.

    An induction hob sits completely flat into the worktop, continuing the smooth, sleek look. The owners decided against a splash back and instead applied clear vanish to protect the painted wall.

    A larder cupboard and a built in fridge-freezer sit either side of a bank of ovens at the end of the island – putting away groceries is quick and easy.

    The exposed brickwork and oversized letters make a dramatic backdrop to the dining area, and along with the low-hanging pendant lights, emphasise the high ceiling.

    Glacier white, corian worktops were chosen to match the cabinetry. Composite worktops can be moulded to shape and join seamlessly. Here, it wraps around the island. There is also a fully integrated sink with no joins. The handleless cabinets appear to float, which gets away from the fitted look and makes this kitchen feel more like a living space. Drawers offer more accessible storage than cupboards and adjustable compartments help keep things organised.
    Music is important to this family so a wireless sound system has been installed, which includes smart-wall and in-ceiling speakers.

    In the utility area, a row of tall cupboards house the laundry appliances and cleaning products.

    The rear extension features sliding glass doors that pull right back to create an indoor-outdoor feel that’s perfect for entertaining.
