Our client was embarking on a large project – removing a wall which divided the original kitchen and dining room, to open up the space and allow views of the back garden. The original rooms had quirky nooks and angles, but the aim was to strip it all back to use the main outline walls of the room, creating a functional, streamlined kitchen. Dark colours and the choice of pipe-style lighting, leather chairs and Metro tiles combine to create a timeless industrial look with a strong, masculine flavour. The kitchen is effortlessly efficient, with a sleek induction hob on the island, a huge fridge-freezer and a bi-fold dresser. The dresser doors hide the microwave and all the other small appliances to emphasise the sleek, business-like look. The choice of burnished brass ironmongery throughout looks dramatic against the Lamp Black painted cabinetry, and links up visually with the 10 Bulb Pipework Industrial Pendant from Peppermill Interiors.
