The Stephens family had plans to transform the back of their house to create a new family room for the kitchen and dining area. As the existing kitchen space was not large enough to give them what they wanted, a builder was brought in to remove a structural wall between two previous rooms and add extra light with two sets of bi-fold doors, It was important even though a dining area needed to be incorporated that the space would feel as one. Also a home was needed for the pre-commissioned art work of the cow.
To start, a large bulkhead feature with up-lighting was put into spread across the ceiling not only create the feeling of one space but to also house the ceiling extractor. It wad felt having one large island would block off the room too much, so the slightly rarer option of two islands were put in, one for the hob & food preparation and a second for dining.
To keep the kitchen practical, the main cooking elements were kept to one side of the room featuring the sink and a bank of tall housing for the fridge and ovens all set at an easy access height. The other end of the room was then for extra storage a built a in second fridge for drinks and softened with some open shelving. The second island also had extra storage tucked up behind the stools. The mixture of a warm but light high gloss units with the concrete effect helped to keep the room light with an industrial twist.
