Spring Grove

Contemporary Kitchen, Berkshire

The kitchen runs from front to back of this large family house, with windows to three sides making it extremely light and bright. There is a run of units down each side of the room with a large rectangular island in the centre, emphasising the clean lines and linearity of the space. The cabinetry in a combination of grey oak veneer and cream gloss lacquer adds contrast in both colour and texture. The cream gloss lacquer on the cupboard doors also reflects the abundant light, as does the bronze mirror above the upstands. The linearity of the room is further emphasised by the strong vertical and horizontal divisions formed by the burnished metal plinths and golas. The cooking appliances form a horizontal row to one side of the kitchen where they are housed within columns, echoing the island. The island has a stone work top in off white, and vertical stone strips that contrast with the grey oak of the cabinets. The hob and downdraft extractor are sited on the island, with a bespoke frosted glass breakfast table at one end. The difference in height of this table breaks up the angularity of the design. On the opposite wall there is another line of base and wall units and the sink. Here, the wall units are set onto wooden back boards, which again emphasise the linearity of the design. Between the wooden backboards and the 300mm stone upstands, bronze mirrors reflecting even more light.
