Our clients love of Scandinavian design and the colour black were the main influences for this Belfast kitchen. Our main focus in the re-design was to increase the amount of surface area therefore creating a more functional prep space. The addition of the return resolved this issue increasing worktop area and providing more storage options. The ‘all black’ palatte creates a clean and sophisticated backdrop to the living space and allows it to be a focal point in the room, allowing the client’s collection of vintage and designer pieces stand out. The small insert of oak creates a small break from the run of black and is an ideal showcase for a few carefully selected objects.
