Three's a charm
Positioned in secluded West Yorkshire countryside, this home underwent a large-scale renovation, forming a grand yet inviting kitchen living space, adaptable between everyday life and weekends spent entertaining.
With a large family and young grandchildren, much of their quality time is spent in and around the kitchen making memories. Therefore, a highly sociable design was essential where all can relax and enjoy. Regularly hosting and cooking for family also meant a functional layout was key with quality appliances.
A carefully considered tri-island design forms a main working zone within the kitchen; breakfast bar and banquette seating set on the perimeter subtly yet intentionally keeps guests from interrupting the hard-working zone for the keen cooks, while conversations remain flowing. The inclusion of two types of dining seating allows a flexible use of the space, ideal for both formal and informal occasions. With ample storage in the islands, the tall bank of furniture houses appliances, as well as a pocket door breakfast cabinet to easily hide away items from the main kitchen. Two wine coolers elegantly frame this run adding further interest to the space.
Light furniture and worktops on the islands form a delicate palette of materials, while the sumptuous dark wood veneer and tabletop add a charming contrast.
This project features SieMatic SLX furniture in veneer and lacquer velvet-matt finishes with Atlas Plan sintered stone worktops, Dekton sintered stone tabletop, wooden breakfast bar, Miele appliances, BORA cooktop & extraction and Quooker boiling water tap.
The living space features a complementing SieMatic SC sideboard in brushed gold bronze aluminium finish with Dekton top and sides.
