Although the property, in Bowdon, is relatively modern, the kitchen has been brought even more up-to-date with an innovative design from Kitchen Design Centre.
“I am often asked to design kitchens with visual impact but it has to work from a practical, working point of view, especially when the owners want to cook for the family,” said designer Suzanne.
The interior design of the existing extension didn’t blend in with the room as a whole – so the kitchen needed a complete revamp.
The couple owning the property had looked around for kitchens in a style suiting their needs but weren’t satisfied with anything they had seen.
A friend suggested they pay a visit to the Kitchen Design Centre Manchester showroom.
“We started talking and it became clear that they wanted something with a real contemporary edge that stood the test of time,” recalls Suzanne.
Suzanne suggested a mix of smooth Corian with a walnut finish. The wood brings a sense of warmth and prevents a cold clinical look.
The layout was the next consideration, with the focal point being the central island.
While the design of the central island incorporates a breakfast bar, the couple also wanted a dining table to use for meals as well. In response to this, Suzanne designed one to attach to it, using the same materials.
The “downturned Corian table” is a unique creation - different from kitchens of a similar style.Designed for preparation and serving meals, the kitchen’s central island is complete with a powerful induction hob as well as a downdraft extractor, which is discreetly hidden and rises out of the island when you want to use it.
The induction hob is ideal for fast, flame free cooking. It is a more efficient choice than ceramic, halogen or solid plate electric because of its instantaneous heating and cooling – with lower running costs.
“Its so fast and easy to clean,” the couple said, “and the downdraft extractor is discreet and stylish.
“There are so many modern appliances and space saving innovations that make this kitchen a pleasure to work in.”
The kitchen also includes an innovative Quooker boiling water tap. This provides both instant boiling and chilling filtered water, great for making quick drinks or boiling water for food preparation.
In addition, there are four modern built-in ovens, positioned directly next to each other, with a compact oven and microwave.
With a few more suggestions from Suzanne to create the perfect kitchen design, such as a round table overlooking the breakfast bar and a wall mounted digital TV across from the dining area, Kitchen Design Centre made the couple’s ideas a reality.
The end result was a superb German handle-less kitchen - bright, airy spacious and a pleasure to work in.
“Kitchen Design Centre was helpful, fast, efficient and very accommodating to anything extra that we wanted,” the couple said. “We love our new kitchen and it was fantastic to work with both the designer and fitters.
“It’s a large, modern home with lots of space, including a living room and dining room, but the kitchen is now the hub of this home,” they concluded.
