Light Contemporary Kitchen by Jane Stewart

Sub-Zero and Wolf's 2010-2012 Kitchen Design Contest: Regional Winner Award.

First challenge was space planning - the original house layout had restricted doorways and multiple smaller rooms - we opened up the area and added a glass conservatory at the rear elevation. The simplified entrance area to the china room gave a clean flow from main kitchen area past the glass and crockery store from the main kitchen.

The addition to this character period property of the glass cube conservatory was planned to increase the light and feel of the room as well as marry the two styles of classic and contemporary. The scale of the property worked well with the handsome proportions of the Sub-Zero and Wolf appliances - coupled with the classic nature of the shaker style kitchen furniture - we felt that a handle-less detail was perfect marriage of styles - still a traditional concept but a touch of modernity.

The soft, elegant tones chosen for the paint finish created a chic and timeless kitchen. The emphasis was to still keep the kitchen as somewhere the whole family could eat and relax - the generous table perfect for entertaining with stunning views looking out on the surrey countryside. Elegant lighting in hand crafted white glass pendant lamps over island kept the contemporary feel - plinth lighting added a soft and welcoming feel as night draws in.
