A unique and contemporary handleless design in a 1960’s home in Bath creating a simple yet impactful space.

Handleless Plum Kitchen – The Brief

Extending through to the garage, our client was looking for more space to create a large kitchen dining area which was far from the original kitchen space inherited with the home.


We worked closely with our clients before the extension was built looking at what they were hoping to create and gain from the additional space. Aesthetically, it was clear we needed to design a contemporary kitchen that brightened up the extension whilst keeping the space simple and minimalist with plenty of clean lines. 


We designed a large island housing double draws on the back run facing away from the dining area to keep with the minimal aesthetic. The island was designed to be practical yet social, the opposite side of the island has an overhang of the Bianco Concretto worktop creating space to do homework whilst dinner is cooking. The centralised induction hob in the island is perfectly positioned to look over the dining room and out onto the balcony and garden.


The integrated chamfer handle runs continuously along the sink run of uniform cabinets creating a symmetrical handleless clutter-free look. The low run of cabinetry keeps the space open and contemporary. 


Our client wanted a nontraditional kitchen aesthetic so we designed standalone tall cabinetry that does not connect to the sink run housing the oven tower and fridge freezer with additional pull out storage creating a contemporary, individual look


The design aesthetic was important for our client so we decided on a bold, rich colour that would complement the pale walls and micro cement floor whilst contrasting with the chosen interiors. 


It was an exciting project to be a part of from the initial concept of the extension to the final paint choice; creating a bespoke and contemporary kitchen.
