Red Hot Design in Downton, Hampshire
Second Nature kitchen in Milford on Sea
Designed for a private client in Milford on Sea, Hampshire, this stunning kitchen was designed to complement the client’s bright red freestanding range cooker and red feature wall.
Teaming the bright red accent colour together with a combination of pale grey and dark grey frontals and a white marble 40mm Statuario worksurface makes this a strikingly bold and exciting kitchen that really reflects the client’s individual tastes.
The Broadoak shaker style, woodgrain units from Second Nature in Pale Partridge grey were selected for all base, wall and tall units other than those that make up the island. The island was created using Second Nature’s Fitzroy smooth finish shaker range in a darker Graphite colourway. The island houses the ceramic undermounted sink with Quooker boiling water tap, the dishwasher, double wine fridge and storage in the form of deep pan drawers and cupboards. A worktop overhang with rounded edges creates a breakfast bar and in the island end unit a wine storage rack has been incorporated, with the backs of the cubbies painted a red to match the range and feature wall.
A symmetrical preparation area on one wall includes the Neff fridge/freezer and larder storage, double fronted base units and a central unit featuring two pan drawers with a cutlery drawer over. The wall units feature pelmet lighting and include two curved end units between which is displayed a feature clock directly in line with the wine rack at the opposite end of the island. The look is symmetrical and very pleasing on the eye.
Lighting is a key feature of this design with plinth lights and pelmet lighting adding dramatic impact. Kickspace heaters integrated into the plinths ensure that the room is heated efficiently without the need for space hungry radiators that can sometimes compromise an overall design.
