About the work - from the designer

I first met the client in our Fareham showroom where he told me that he wanted  a very contemporary kitchen for a new timber house he was having imported and built on the sea front, constructed of planked walls, floors and ceilings.
The space the kitchen was allocated was long and narrow and needed to incorporate the living area as well, plus the clients brief included an American-style fridge freezer and an island with seating. 

Together we agreed that a sleek handle-less design with dark charcoal base cabinets and white glossy wall units would contrast fantastically against all the light wood in the property. This was further complemented with polished quartz work surfaces and a grey mirror backsplash behind the sink to reflect the feeling of space.

The finishing touches were the induction and tepan yaki hob on the island with a pop up extractor and the clients choice to paint the planked walls blended the whole interior together, creating a beautiful living space in a very unique home.

The dark kitchens of LEICHT’s carbon grey Collection, with a raised carcase height, create an exceptional atmosphere with an architecturally clear look and reduced design language.
The colour of choice in this kitchen– dark grey – is an impressively dominant element with a gentle statement: in combination with wood surfaces, a top-quality ensemble is created which visualises the characterful and versatile effect of dark materials an exemplary way.
