The U-Shaped Kitchen

07 May 2021

A U-SHAPED ISLAND

This kitchen presented an unusual challenge. Whilst the room itself was fairly huge, there was only one small section of usable wall. A traditional shaped island would not have accommodated everything and a peninsular just didn’t work... it was time to think outside the box (yet again)!

With the careful deployment of our 1200mm C Element (curved cabinet) we created a U-shaped island. All the boxes were ticked: plenty of work surface, large vented hob, large sinks, seating area and of course plenty of storage by way of our solid oak drawers and ply-wood cabinets. 

That bit of wall mentioned previously did come in handy... here all the tall elements (larders, fridge, ovens) were grouped together and positioned perfectly for access from the 'working area' of the kitchen, or maybe that should be 'the bridge’)! - this kitchen looks like it could jump to hyper-space at moment, 

A dual aspect boxCASE was created to provide storage and screening from the living room area. The solid oak ties in well with the oak trims on the kitchen and that shot of Poppyfield red brings just the right amount of vibrancy.

A popular choice for larders between 400 and 600 wide is the towerDRAWER. This one is a 600 (so it matches the fridge) and provides ample storage with the five internal oak drawers, shelves and spice rack.

Most projects bring together carefully selected products that complement the Tomas look and functionality of the kitchen.

Here we have a superb vented hob called the Sintesi (top) by top Italian brand Falmec. It is unusual as it allows ‘panoramic’ cooking (four pans in a row) with the extraction element positioned at the rear.

The stools are a real Danish classic: CH58 by Hans J Wegner for Carl Hansen.

Cameo White Corian was chosen for the work surface for continuity - that is to say no joins around the whole U shape and beautiful seamless sinks (above).
