High gloss white handleless custom made kitchen furniture designed, manufactured and installed for our customer based in Normanton, West Yorkshire. The investor was looking to maximise the space in a relatively small kitchen with the use of white reflective materials which will make the room looks slightly bigger than it is. A second important factor during the design process was to optimise the construction of the carcases so they will adopt most of the available space and at the same time not overwhelming the room.
After consultations, we decided to use a combination of Ultra-high acrylic-coated slab doors and to give the furniture more character the carcases were made in Boston concrete effect from the Egger MFC board range. The worktop used in this project was 38mm thick Egger Light Grey Valmasino Marbel effect. You can find out more about the materials used to manufacture carcases and worktops on that page.
All wall units except the one over the extractor fan are made to suit the room, in this particular case they were 1000mm high giving customer additional storage and flexibility in the matter of arranging the content. The bottom part of the wall units was equipped with vertically placed soft close hinges and containing two shelves. The top part of the carcases has got horizontally push to open mechanisms. That part is not divided so it can accommodate bigger items.
In the base units, we were implemented several tip-on soft close drawers manufactured as the hinges and lift systems used for that project by Blum leading furniture component provider. All hinges, lift mechanisms and drawer runners are lifetimes warranted*.
Tall larder unit becomes housing for the Bosch integrated oven and microwave. There was also additional storage space developed below and above the appliances.
Boiler housing with storage space
On the left-hand side of the room, there was placed a combi boiler. Instead of making a small cupboard just to cover the boiler, we decided to build a bigger structure which not only hides the appliance and pipes but also give additional storage space. Again the cupboard was made that way, so it fills up space from the floor to the ceiling. However, it is as shallow as possible to do not consume much space from the kitchen.
Kitchen island with drawers
The last goal was to develop a dining space where the household could have a quick meal. For that purpose, we have designed a compact kitchen island which again combining a storage space and worktop surface. It contains broad drawer chest and two shelved units so practically there is no wasted space in that 900mm x 900mm construction.
