Poorly pine kitchen goes Moregeous on a slate, gloss white and copper palette

This poor kitchen with it’s hideous pine ceiling (Why oh why do people do this? An obsession with Swedish saunas?!) and dated units was loathed by the owner and I was asked to organise the kitchen re-design. The room wasn’t a bad size for a kitchen, approx 2.5m x 4m, but there were 3 doors in and out, a large window, plus the client wanted an over-sized American style fridge freezer and large range oven, plus a table area. Not much then!!

They wanted a natural grey slate for the floor, with underfloor heating, white gloss units with a granite surface and some funky lighting. Phewf.

But it all fitted, eventually, with a bespoke glass table made in a kidney shape  to curve away from the fridge, plus a digitally printed blind which is a one off from a print chosen by the client. The kitchen was featured in Move or Improve Magazine.

  1. I actually love the slate floor – would never have thought of it. Is it good for kitchens?
    Growing up in South Africa (I live in another conutry now) I recall having a lot of slate but mostly outside – and I *think* I recall it absorbing and staining a lot, no?
