Contemporary light grey kitchen with LED lighting

Stock, Essex

The brief:
Business owners, Mr and Mrs Baker, longed for a striking kitchen to match their captivating five-bedroom detached house in Stock, Essex. In an open layout, it was essential the room would become the focal point of their home, perfect for entertaining, socialising and family time. The couple loved the quality and style that Stoneham is renowned for, and wanted to achieve this in their home for a contemporary design with stylish features and practicality to suit their daily lifestyle.

The solution:
To achieve their dream kitchen, the couple went to Stoneham retailer Manor Designs and chose Strata cabinetry for the main furniture in painted French Grey. The sleek and distinctive finish was complemented by recessed brushed-steel handles for effortless operation. With super smart storage
space within, the furniture was also lined with bespoke LED lighting and embellished with a yellow and green glass custom splashback, adding a
unique accent of colour to the room.

The centre piece and the couple’s favourite element of the kitchen is the impressive yin and yang inspired island and matching ceiling bulkhead. The island’s unique shape was custom-designed and provides flexible feasting,
with a bespoke bench carved into the side and accompanied by a round dining table. Stoneham’s Holwood range in Anthracite Oak Stained was used for the island’s cupboards with Black and White Zebrano detailing flowing in between for a special design feature, and was completed by a Corian worktop in Savannah.

The kitchen is immersed in innovative design elements with a corner sink that sits flawlessly above radiused drawers, blending in perfectly with the curvature of the furniture. A dropped section in the work surface provides the ideal space for the television, perfect for sociable gatherings.

The room is also furnished with superb Siemens appliances, including two integrated ovens, a hidden extractor fan in the bulkhead and an induction hob on the island. A stylish hanging ceiling light illuminates the dining area creating an intimate effect and scattered ceiling spotlights create a brighter room when needed.

The result? A stunning, contemporary kitchen, with customised features and excellent functionality. Designed for entertaining, the room exudes warmth and undeniable style.
