This beautiful new build home is deep in the Mourne Mountains and is surrounded by natural beauty, because of building restrictions the house could only be one and half storeys and had to have a traditional facade with a cottage look to ensure it would blend in. However the clients where keen to create a contrast with a contemporary statement kitchen.
The open plan living space comprises the kitchen living and dining areas. The designer was able to create a unique design that was not restricted and provided design solutions to create this stunning kitchen. A lowered bulk head ceiling sits over the island and ambient led lighting surrounds it, stud walls have been built to house the kitchen appliances to give a flush fitting appearance, which enhances the streamlined look of the room. Similarily in the living area at the end of the room, a built in housing unit for the TV, which conceals all of the cables and boxes out of sight. The client has chosen a striking pink tone to make a statement of the two feature walls and the alcoves have been back-lit with led atmospheric lighting.
One of the main design features is the “secret door” down to the basement. The door way is in the middle of a long run of units, the client did not want to interfere with the streamlined look of the kitchen by having a door way in the middle. The solution was to use a unique sliding fold away door system. The doorway is completely concealed by gloss door fronts and when closed you wouldn’t know it was there!
The client had always wanted a large pantry but was unsure how this could work in such a contemporary setting. The designer set to work to design a beautiful pantry with hand-carved bread drawers and spice racks that would sit behind two gloss door fronts, the result is stunning and is one of the clients favourite features. The hob on the island is a Bora induction hob that sits flush with the quartz worktop and has a downdraft extraction system the sits between the two hot plates. This extraction is one of the most effective on the market today.
A stunning bespoke design, this kitchen is a true reflection of its owners individual style.
