At JD Kitchens, we always say to our clients that building a kitchen is so much more than just about the appliances and cabinets. It’s about the space, the flow, and the feeling that you get when you walk into the room. There is no better example of this than in this recently completed kitchen in Glendale, Leixlip.
When our clients in Glendale approached us with their project, they had a few key requests: they wanted a classic, timeless design that maximised the space they had available to them.
And, most importantly, they wanted to make the most of the wonderful light that entered their kitchen. This was a refurbishment of an existing kitchen which was tired and was ready to be modernised in line with work that had been carried out on other parts of the house.
We began by reviewing the space and creating a 3D model of what we thought might work best. This allowed us to see how different elements—such as appliances, furniture, and wall finishes—might fit together in a cohesive way.
As the key and most important element to setting the tone of this kitchen design, we suggested creating a tall cabinetry frame that would run from one end of the kitchen to the other. In creating this, we created a piece of art around which the rest of the kitchen’s features were planned.
To soften and further reinforce the beauty of the frame, we placed a striking piece of quartz at the centre of the wall. As a focal point, the quartz piece would not look out of place as an abstract painting in an art gallery. The quartz was also used on the countertop for the kitchen island, bringing a bright yet warm feel to this important kitchen element. The solid ash doors ensured texture and warmth were key elements to the room, with the texture of the ash complimenting the vein in the quartz.
The finishing touches only added to the beauty of this space. Herringbone floors bring warmth and a touch of real class to the deep soothing green cabinetry, The bar stools further complement the herringbone with criss-cross patterns similar to those on the floor. Glass doors suggest an urban, almost New York loft feel, as do the legs on the bar stools.
This is a kitchen to envy, a place where attention to detail is second to none; a kitchen that can only be described as truly beautiful.
