The kitchen was housed in a new extension which became an open-plan living space, making the most of the views of their south facing garden.
The clients appointed approved Mackintosh retailer, Kuche & Bagno with a brief to create a space that was sociable and included a large island.
With the advice from of interior designer Hannah Davidson, the couple settled on a more streamlined Mackintosh Integral kitchen in a similar palette of soft taupe and hickory, which complemented the rest of the space. They opted for a grey, concrete-effect Dekton worktop, resistant to stains, scratches and heat.
Supersized, clutter-free island
The main feature is the supersized, clutter-free island, incorporating the hob, sinks, dishwasher, a large dish drawer and seating. Hannah was careful to ensure that the island was non-intrusive when not in use, recommending a retractable Neff down-draft extractor. An In Sink Erator waste disposal system was also installed.
“We now live in this one living space. We love having the kitchen re-positioned to the rear of the house; it has made it much more sociable, which has been helped by having such a big island and we spend lots of time sat at it, rather than just being in the kitchen to cook”.
