This kitchen was part of a complete barn refurbishment for a young couple and Kuche and Bagno worked alongside Springburn Joinery who created the beautiful Slide & Fold doors for the kitchen, along with all the other joinery requirements for the project. 

The couple were looking for a kitchen with the wow factor. They love to entertain so this needed to be a practical party space – they also have dogs so the flooring needed to accommodate muddy paws! 

The client saw a kitchen on display at Kuche & Bagno that they liked. The kitchen was ‘The Entertainer’, where the island units looks like it is floating above a mirrored plinth, it accommodates every entertaining need with an eye catching bank of built in appliances. 

As the kitchen is in a barn with original beams, we wanted to highlight natural materials. A textured slate wall was chosen, which adds a natural, yet modern touch to the overall kitchen and creates a dramatic contrast with the Silestone Blanco Zeus Extreme white worktop. The Vitra Neo-quarzite tiles in anthracite on the floor add further contrast to the white worktops and have a practical, durable finish, suitable for the pet dogs. 

Ultra-contemporary Keller Feunte units in a striking, white, high-gloss finish, bounce light around the space and complement the wooden beams. As the clients enjoy hosting parties, LED colour-changing lights from Sycamore Lighting were installed in the plinth and in beaming at the base of the slate wall. A spectrum of colours enables the clients to choose one for every occasion and makes a strong style statement. This use of colour also brings warmth to an otherwise contemporary neutral palette. 

A distinctive, hanging, Elica Sienna hood had to be worked around the existing visible timber joists. This sits above a sleek, designer Kuppersbusch hob for a seamless finish. High performance NEFF ovens make cooking a breeze and a Fisher & Paykel double fridge freezer provides plenty of storage when entertaining. The Fisher & Paykel double DishDrawer makes clearing up afterwards quick and easy. 

The wet zone features a Tekka Linea under-mount sink in stainless steel, a favourite material for chefs, and an Astracast Professional tap completes the look with a handy InSinkErator added in for grinding food down
