After deciding to not move to a new house, these clients wanted to update their kitchen space. Removing the dated kitchen, which felt dated, dark and small, along with some walls and replacing with a modern fully fitted kitchen, that is now open plan, light and airy with appliances and gadgets that the clients didn’t even know they needed!
Taking full advantage of the free design consultation that we offer at Meridien Interiors, the perfect kitchen was created, ticking all the boxes of needs and wants for the clients.
Clients required a kitchen that was stylish, modern and fully functional. Meeting the needs of a busy family, allowing the clients to cater for large dinner parties and quick family meals alike.
With the team creating a space that can be enjoyed by the whole family.
The chosen kitchen is the Alpina from Second Nature Kitchens. Second Nature Kitchens are high quality manufactured kitchens, that offer a great range of kitchen styles to choose from.
The Alpina is an ultra-modern kitchen that is made to measure to fit each new kitchen space. Making it truly unique to each client and their kitchen space.
The slab design of the Alpina allows for the handlesless cabinet doors, the handles are actually incorporated into the design of the door itself. The Alpina has a range of finishes and colours , that the clients took full advantage of.
Choosing to mix and match the cabinet doors with a Porcelain in a matt finish, mixing the taller cabinets and kitchen island in a burnt ash, again with a matt finish.
Not to take advantage of what was now a large kitchen space, many space saving ideas have been incorporated into this kitchen design. Including the floor to ceiling space tower cabinets, waste bins that are cleverly hidden away, pull out spice racks and a Le Mans corner base units. The Le Mans corner unit is a clever space saving unit. Swinging smoothly from the corner cupboard. Allowing you to see and access easily the items stored in this cupboard.
The main focal point for this kitchen is the kitchen island. Finished in a deep oak matt, incorporating bronze rails for the hidden handles. This kitchen island not only provides more storage space, which is essential for a family kitchen but also home to the kitchen sink. Not just any kitchen sink but an anthracite grey undermount sink from the 1810 range. With the undermount fitting of the sink it keeps the modern kitchen lines flowing, and also means that there are no places for dirt and bacteria to hide under. With such a lovely sink, you can’t fail with the installation of the kitchen tap, again this is not just any tap. Clients have chosen the newest Quooker tap available, The Quooker Fusion. This is a single tap, that not only provides boiling water for that perfect cup of tea, but a stylish mixer tap for hot and cold water too.
The tap is easy to use and childproof, the Fusion incorporates a childproof double push and turn handle with a light ring. Available in a range of colours, polished chrome, stainless steel, patinated brass, gold and black. On this kitchen the perfect match is the Quooker Fusion in black, matching with the Anthracite grey sink and contrasting against the shine of the worktop.
Finishing off the Alpina kitchen cabinets is a stunning quartz worktop from CLR. Quartz not only look the part, it is also a practical choice for a busy kitchen as it is durable and easy to maintain. The chosen quartz for this kitchen is the Colarado. This has a marble look surface which matches well with the chosen colours of porcelain and dark oak cabinets of this kitchen.
