Bright and airy contemporary kitchen design in Hertfordshire

"The design was brilliant. Thank you so much for the beautiful flowers - they are now looking very wonderful on the island of a very wonderful kitchen!"

Charlie and Angela had been working on their house, rebuilding their four bathrooms, and improving windows in other rooms. The kitchen was the next big project.

Their brief was to give them a light, airy, highly contemporary and cutting edge kitchen in line with the bathrooms already completed. Working with their Interior Designer Lynne Skelton the potential of the space became apparent. The utility room was next to the kitchen, separated by a small patio, and it was decided to extend the kitchen out across the patio to meet the utility. This provided the necessary width to enable a fabulous long central island - something that the clients had always wanted.

The designer was keen for the new space to stand out structurally from the rest of the house and created a huge glass corner giving clear views of the garden. A large electric glass roof light in the ceiling further enhances the feeling of light and space.

bulthaup Winchester were commissioned by the clients to design and install a functional luxury kitchen within this space.

The central island is finished in applewood with a slim and practical 10mm stainless steel worktop. This is the main preparation, storage and cooking area; it includes an Atag induction hob and a seamlessly integrated bulthaup sink. A tall run in Alpine white laminate with laser welded edges discretely holds Gaggenau fridge freezers and ovens, a wine chiller and a crockery cabinet, with internal drawers for easy access right to the back.

The opposite wall is the designated washing up area with a wide bulthaup stainless steel sink and draining area, Miele dishwasher, and further storage. Additional use has been made of the space at the back of the worktop by including 4 bulthaup function boxes to hold knives, bread board etc.
