Contemporary open plan kitchen in deep blue

West London

The brief:

Hair stylists, Mr and Mrs Loizou, enlisted Stoneham to design a fresh, statement kitchen for their stylish apartment in West London, complete with clean lines and no-nonsense functionality. With limited space to complete the project in, the couple desired plenty of clever storage space and a stand-out, eye-catching room complete with dynamic and quirky design features.


The solution:
Drawn to Stoneham’s Fusion collection, the Loizous’ choice of cabinetry is arguably the kitchen’s defining feature; the two-tonal concept accentuates the room’s characteristics and creates an illusion of aggrandised space. The main run of cabinetry is precision finished in Blue Hague, one of 2017 and 2018’s most sought after kitchen shades. Particularly striking set against a backdrop of white walls, the dark blue furniture is complemented further by its counterpart, an impressive centre island composed of the same Stoneham collection in Lead, a light grey hue. Lead draws out the intricacies in the kitchen’s Silestone worktop and creates a contrasting ambience.

Touch opening and extra deep, the darker cabinets provide practical sophistication, with the highest cupboard doors releasing electronically. The island furniture, however, benefits from sleek brushed steel handles, highlighting and catering to the clients’ diverse taste in kitchen styles and influences. Embellished with Senseo cool white LED lights across its edges and adorned with rose gold statement pendant lights, the island is the hub of the room, acting as both a sociable talking point and an immersive cooking area.

For food preparation, a Siemens induction hob sits on top of the island and is accompanied by an impressive hidden extractor fan and integrated, secret plug point. The kitchen is also enhanced by two state-of-the-art Siemens ovens, plus a discreet and essential wine cooler!

The result? An utterly unfussy and completely contemporary kitchen, that flaunts on-trend colours, styles and accessories and blends in perfectly with the rest of the couple’s chic London apartment.
