Our clients have lived in their family home for 30 years and were looking to update their kitchen to a contemporary and future-proof design to last them for years to come. After researching online, they approached KCA to design their new kitchen.
The couple were looking for a contemporary-styled kitchen with a bit of colour and as many mod-cons to make their lives easier now and in the future. Beyond their day-to-day requirements, the couple regularly hosts friends and family, so the space needed to accommodate entertaining and a passion for cooking. The clients were keen to ensure their kitchen was easy to navigate whilst cooking, dining and entertaining.
This KCA kitchen incorporates plenty of worktop space, which was key for the clients as they found their old kitchen cluttered with gadgets restricting their prep space. To maximise functionality, flow and ease of use we replaced the low-level range cooker for integrated appliances positioned at a more comfortable height.
As proud grandparents, it was important that the kitchen design and appliances were all child-friendly. The integrated appliances and induction hob offer greater safety than their previous gas range cooker. The induction hob also offers easier use as they can slide pans for temperature regulation and automatic on/off timers. The suite of Siemens ovens also have a number of settings for a diverse range of cooking functions, mainly the ability to upload their favourite recipes and create a perfect, evenly cooked pizza for those family and friends’ nights using the pizza setting. The telescopic rails gave them ease of use for those slightly heavier dishes.
The new streamlined bench seating and table maximise the floor plan, allowing an easier flow around the dining table and access to the cooking appliances. The kitchen design incorporates the dining table within the kitchen space so our clients can easily cater to guests and their cooking duties whilst entertaining friends and family. The table materials match the panelling used for the bench seating, tying the seating area together.
The kitchen features plenty of drawers that have the capacity to hold up to 70kg of weight. This means the clients won’t have to rummage around in shelved units and clamber to the back to find the small frying pans and Tupperware. The design also features Le Man’s corner units and carousel units to make it easy to find all their tins without having to crouch into uncomfortable positions.
The double breakfast pantry offers space to conceal their morning routine appliances such as the toaster, chopping boards, bread bins and crockery. There is also a Quooker boiling water tap which is more efficient and sustainable than a kettle, with the added feature of child-safe design.
