We love this space! The client wanted to open up two rooms into one by taking out the dividing wall. This really opened up the space and created a real social space for the whole family. The are lots f nice features within this design, the L shape island works perfectly in the space. The patterned floor and exposed brick work really give this design character.

This kitchens demeanour is one of quiet function, designed for effortless prepping and cooking and with space to socialise with friends and family. The unusual curved island in dusted oak veneer and finished in our unique paint colour, Periwinkle offers seating for eating and chatting. The handmade cabinets of this blue kitchen design are individually specified and perfectly positioned to maximise every inch of space. Family kitchens deserve a family-sized centrepiece and this curved island is a real talking point. It’s a modern take on a traditional concept with integrated sink, high-end appliances and a spacious, sweeping breakfast bar. The solid Silestone worktop in Snowy Ibiza is in striking contrast to the Periwinkle finish proving that style and practicality can go hand-in-hand.
This vibrant and striking kitchen design has more than its fair share of wow-factor, not least because of the two large islands which form the centre piece to the design. Each island has been topped with 60mm thick quartz worktops, complete with waterfall edges. As well as looking simply amazing, the double islands also serve to define the two separate zones of this otherwise open-plan living space. One island has been given over to food preparation, with the sink positioned in close proximity to the range cooker, the bespoke larder cupboard and the integrated Miele appliances which include two dishwashers, a fridge and a freezer. This carefully considered layout helps to create an efficient work area when cooking. On the other side of the room the second island serves more as a space for dining, relaxing or perhaps even entertaining with the slightly raised breakfast bar area, the integrated Miele wine cooler and room for four bar stools. The clients own ‘Let’s Stay Home’ light installation tells us all we need to know. When you have a kitchen as stunning as this, there really is nowhere else you need to go.

Sonata A beautiful composition that comprises of a pair of island units at its generous heart. The soft, two-tone melody of teal and mocha harmonises this scheme in a way that is both subtle and distinctive. The added touch of grooved and textured cabinetry makes this kitchen as unique as the family for which it was created. Bronze handles add a hint of glamour and complement the effect of the windows. Restrained yet welcoming, classic in feel yet with a contemporary panache, this design hits all the right notes.

Comprising part of an extension to a Victorian semi-detached family house in Teddington, Jo Johal, managing director at Vogue Kitchens was commissioned to design a clean, sharp and luxurious contemporary monochrome open plan kitchen that answers the needs of the owners that love to cook and entertain. The other part of the extension comprises a separate formal dining room with an internal door leading to it. The extension leads directly to the paved patio and lawned garden and both rooms feature a wall of sliding panelled glass doors that open directly to the outside space. The rectangular layout of the room meant that the elongated kitchen island would form a long run down the centre of the kitchen, with the cabinetry and appliances behind. Because of the glass doors and additional ceiling lanterns, the kitchen is filled with natural light during the day and it further features a white smoked glass window directly behind the sink run, which is also light-reflective. By combining pure white walls and ceilings with pure white worksurfaces and anthracite cabinetry, the result is dramatic and visually stunning. The tall cabinetry and island door and drawer fronts are in a laminate gloss finish by premium German brand, Leicht, and are featured in Anthracite colourway. The island incorporates storage drawers for cutlery and spices together with further cupboards for crockery, glasses and pans. The quartz composite worktop for the sink run, the island and end panels is in Pure White by Diresco. At one end of the kitchen island, Jo has designed an extended informal dining area, continuing the use of the 50mm deep quartz composite. To separate the social space from the cooking area is a specially designed ice box Champagne and wine cooler, also in quartz composite and in Glacier White by Diresco. Housed on either side of the sink run are floor to ceiling cabinets and to the right are cupboards for dry storage surrounding a bank of ovens at the ideal ergonomic height for the owners. These consist of a side-by-side compact Combination Microwave and Compact Steam Oven situated directly above two 60cm single multifunction pyrolytic ovens and beneath those are two 29cm warming drawers, all by Miele. To the left of the sink run is a wall of integrated cooling appliances, all by Gaggenau. These consist of a tall larder fridge, and a tall freezer with ice and water dispenser both on either side of a tall wine storage unit with glass front and LED lighting. Flush mounted within the surface of the kitchen island is a 93cm Miele PowerFlex Induction hob and directly above, installed in a specially constructed false ceiling is a Miele 110cm Ceiling Hood with LED Lighting panels. Both of these appliances feature Miele’s Con@ectivity 2.0 technology, which enables the hob and hood to communicate with each other so that the hood can automatically adjust to the correct fan setting. Integrated within the surface of the sink run is a Franke Kubus Undermount sink with a Quooker Nordic Square Twin Boiling Water Tap. Directly beneath is storage for bins and utility products together with an integrated 60cm Dishwasher by Siemens.
