Kitchen Matt Contemporary
The house is built of old stone. The existing kitchen was made of a series of cellular concrete uprights, a few storage alcoves and a gas cooker. My customers made the decision to transform this ageing interior into a living room that would combine contemporary style with the dimensions of an old house, and they consulted a number of specialist companies qualified to carry out the work.
In this old house, neither the walls nor the floor are straight, we needed to adapt to it, and this was achieved by the fitter, Cyrille. There is already an extractor hood outlet, so we will make use of it. A wide, very low window divides the room in two. Access to fit the quartz worktop was limited, so we had to use a furniture hoist to install it (just one piece weighs over 300 kg).
We opted for unit fronts in real matte lacquer, matching two colours, cream and plum. The existing American-style refrigerator was fitted into an alcove creating by cutting the corner of the room. The kitchen was designed in a U shape, with three areas, one for the refrigerator, a second for the kitchen with everything in easy reach (sink, induction hob, worktop), and lastly a dining area with a view of the living room and the glazed door, seating 4/6 people. We deliberately chose a fitted extractor hood to maintain the line of the upper units, which include two glazed doors. The worktop is made of solid quartz, with a double undermount sink. To gain more storage space, the lower units have a storage height of 83 cm, and the skirting boards are relatively narrow. The splashback is covered in a 3mm-thick ceramic panel, with very few seals, to make it easier to clean.
