Large Kitchen Ideas and Designs

This bespoke kitchen is the perfect blend of subtle elements alongside statement design. While the irregular ceiling heights and central pillar could have posed a problem, the clever colour scheme serves to draw your eye away from these areas and focuses instead on the dramatic charcoal grey cabinetry with its bevelled door detail and knurled, polished brass handles. A bespoke bar area with built-in Miele wine cooler has been hand-painted in a rich, luxurious shade of purple. While the use of an antique mirror splashback in this area further enhances the luxurious feel of the design. Reeded glass has been used in the display cabinets both within the bar and also either side of the sink, which has been strategically positioned by the window to allow lovely views out to the garden. The whole kitchen has been finished with Corian worktops, beautifully moulded to provide a seamless wet area along with an unobtrusive splashback and extractor hood above the Miele Induction hob. Other appliances include a Miele oven stack with warming drawer, a Quooker and an American style fridge freezer. A run of full height cabinetry has been provided along one wall with a double door larder cupboard, open shelving and a secret door leading through to the bespoke utility. In the centre of the room the large, square shaped island has ample space for storage and seating. Here a softer shade of blush pink has been chosen to delicately contrast with the deeper tones throughout the rest of the room.

Kitchen/dining/family room extension.
Beautiful touches of artistry have been applied to each interior pocket – from moody greens set against emerald tiling to happy collisions of primary colours.
We love the symmetry of this Shaker kitchen. The sink on the back wall is in line with the induction hob on the island. The open shelves are backed with natural oak, which warms up the colour scheme. The cabinets are painted in 'Dark Lead' by Little Greene and the handles are by Armac Martin.

Emma Ziff Photography Full refurbishment of a semi- detached house with a large rear extension for a young family with 2 children to provide a kitchen, dining and living area, separate lounge, new downstairs cloakroom, bedrooms and family bathroom.
The project at Park Lodge in Suffolk has the perfect combination of stunning interior architecture, plenty of natural light and a thoughtfully designed series of spaces that flow seamlessly into each other. The kitchen is situated to the rear of the building in a recently built extension overlooking the garden and countryside beyond. The large open windows and roof lantern above create a light and bright space that feels open and airy even on the mid-winter’s day. The perimeter cabinetry has been finished in H|M Lapel and the island finished in H|M Farthing; these cool colours are balanced perfectly with the warmth of the Ludgate oak accent wood throughout alongside the polished nickel Quilp knobs. The main focal point of this kitchen is the Lacanche Saulieu range cooker in bold graphite with a polished nickel trim which pairs with the cabinetry hardware throughout. The hob consists of 4 gas burners and a simmer plate which is perfect for a cooking a big Sunday lunch because of the space for multiple pans. This beautiful classic Lacanche is framed by a bespoke false chimney which conceals the H|M Westin extraction whilst providing niches for small condiments and providing a well balanced focal point to the kitchen. Behind the Lacanche is a stunning quartz splashback, the same as the worktops which keeps the space behind looking clean and simple. The cooking appliances were chosen with entertaining and busy family life in mind so situated either side of the Lacanche are two Miele ovens. The first on the left, is the Miele single pyrolytic oven and to the right of the Lacanche is the Miele combi-microwave with a Miele warming drawer underneath. The Gaggenau refrigerator and Gaggenau wine cooler are both conveniently positioned to the left hand side of the island making it easy to put away groceries and also get what you need for food prep and cooking as well as serving wine. The main sink run is on the island which acts as the main prep area and is parallel to the Lacanche. There is a large Kohler deerfield smart divide sink, Perrin & Rowe Athenian tap with rinse in polished nickel and a Quooker classic hot tap in polished nickel. Integrated either side of the sink are two Miele dishwashers and two eurocargo bins to assist with clearing away additional dishes and glasses when entertaining. Directly opposite the sink is the breakfast bar which has been finished in Portobello oak and is situated across from the main sink/ prep area separating the two spaces but allowing for multiple people to share the same space at any one time. The far end of the island is deliberately lower to keep the symmetry of the main kitchen. It is perfect for a tall bouquet of flowers, getting plates ready for a dinner party or a convenient place to prepare baking goods from the pantry. The day pantry at the far end of the main cooking run. Having a cook’s pantry means all your dry cooking ingredients are stored in one place rather than spread in different cupboards around the kitchen and for ease of use, the engraved drawers also means that you won’t get ingredients mixed up when in a hurry.

An inviting colour palette and carefully zoned layout are key to this kitchen’s success. First, we decided to move the kitchen from a tiny room at the side of the property into a central area, previously used as a dining room, to create a space better suited to a family of five. We also extended the room to provide more space and to afford panoramic views of the garden. We wanted to develop “zoning” ideas to maximise the practicality of the room for family life and to experiment with a darker, richer palette of materials than the usual light and white, to create a welcoming, warm space. The layout is focussed around a large island, which does not include a sink or hob on its surface. This is the monolithic slab in the space, its simple design serving to amplify the beauty of the material it is made from; we chose an ultra-durable concrete-effect quartz to sweep across its top and down to the floor. The island links the other ‘components’ of the room: a distinct zone for washing up, opposite a cooking area, each fitted into niches created by structural pillars. Close to the dining table is a breakfast and drinks station, with boiling water tap, out of the way of the main working areas of the room. Working with interior designer Clare Pascoe of Pascoe Interiors, we selected clean-lined cabinetry in inky blue and dark wood, creating a rich effect offset by a smoked wood floor and natural oak and blue stools. The stronger colours add character and definition, and accentuate the role of the kitchen as the heart of the home.
