This extension of a family home in Templeogue transformed how the space worked and the kitchen is at the heart of that success. Very much a contemporary approach of having the kitchen cabinetry feel like furniture, the kitchen is the heartbeat of this home. The full wall of cabinetry conceals a doorway through to a hard working utility room. The island brings the whole scheme together and works beautifully with the rest of the space.
Many of our clients want a contemporary kitchen, but are nervous about a very glossy or matt finish. In the design, we made the doors from scratch in our workshop using an Ash veneer, which was then painted. The impression is of a rich, textured finish that retains the sense of a more traditional approach.
Every detail here is bespoke and thought through. Black appliances from De Dietrich bring another layer of richness and luxury, connecting the kitchen to other finishes in the space. Countertops are kept clear with a boiling water tap from Zip (no kettle) and a pullout shelf for toaster & coffee machine hidden behind the larder door.
