The kitchen forms its own individual element of the open space and has its own distinctive styling. It’s a U-shape, with a part-wall dividing it from the lounge area. The colours are bold black and white. The appliances are black: a high-tech microwave plus a range cooker, and a large fridge-freezer which actually forms part of the décor.
Surfaces are black marble-effect. The sink and drainer are matt black. The spiral design of the high-arching mixer tap is the icing on a handsome cake. Its whole look is awesomely modern, bold and striking.
A large roof light ensures the kitchen is as bright a space as the lounge section of the open-plan layout. Two more skylights are above over the lounge, adding to the atrium effect.
The dining space, adjoining the kitchen, has a large table, two chairs and a bench. Its unusual styling introduces a suggestion of a cottage theme, which softens the total look against the clean, bold lines of the kitchen.
The bench is shaped rather like a natural piece of planed log. The table edges follow this slightly irregular theme. Two chairs have curved backrests and woven seat sections, again softening the look with a suggestion of a cottagey theme.
