Here are some before and after pictures of a kitchen with the Corian Antartica seamless worktops with Miele appliances.
The customer wanted to move their kitchen to a large, open-plan room that overlooked the garden. They had some very clear ideas of style, it was just a case of getting everything to flow within the space.
This was the space we had to work with. It was lost slightly as most of the living area is in the other two-thirds of the room.
The power feeds for the lighting and the extractor all had to be chased into the wall and hidden in the bulkhead before plastering
One of the main decisions was which side to put the bank of tall units and where to have the breakfast bar. It was important to allow as much natural light in as the windows faced north-east.
We decided to position the tall units in the right-hand corner – this meant no light was blocked and your eye-line view of the kitchen was not broken by a tall gable end. Working from right to left, we have an integrated Kessebohmer tandem larder, Single and Combination Ovens, Integrated Fridge/Freezer. Going down to worktop level, we have a large 600mm pull-out waste bin unit.
The customer wanted to make a feature statement and decided on a bespoke textured glass splashback.
Here we can see the neat door profile end panel which finishes the run off nicely. Pull-out mechanisms either side of the hob drawer pack give plenty of practical storage for cooking oils & spices.
The seamless Corian worktops give as much worktop over to prep space as possible. Even the drainer grooves are routed into the surface so that it can be used as additional prep space when not in use.
The position of the extractor was another item that needed discussion. In the end we went for a ceiling mounted extractor and here you can see it flush-mounted into a purpose-built bulkhead. We made this into a design feature with clever lighting.
