A small-space kitchen with the Gaïa Model - Rive Gauche Trend

A small kitchen, elegant from floor to ceiling


Parisian Left Bank style
The Gaïa Model - Rive Gauche Trend, or Left Bank, is undoubtedly the Parisian neighbourhood that has done most to convey a certain image of France internationally. Once a haven for many artists and fashion designers, this was the place that made Paris the capital of style. This small kitchen reflects this reputation. In this space, we discover all the conventions of Haussmannian architecture: a high ceiling, mouldings, a painted herringbone parquet floor, and a wrought-iron balustrade. Far from being stuck in timeless classicism, this kitchen profits from old elements to create a decorative, modern and unique room.


Small kitchen, big ideas

On paper, corridor kitchens appear to pose a number of problems. What is the best way to organise a confined space with a restricted surface area of around 10 m2? The Gaïa Model - Rive Gauche Trend kitchen manages to create a perfect fit-out by exploiting all the untapped potential of this space. First of all, it is important to decompartmentalise, in order to gain space and open up this small kitchen towards the rest of the house. By keeping the same general colour on all the walls, the boundaries between the different rooms are blurred, creating a feeling of space. The corridor effect is also reduced thanks to several light sources. Fittings such as wall lights play a crucial role in this interior, by creating different levels and volumes to visually enlarge the room and give it more depth. The Gaïa Model - Rive Gauche Trend uses the entire height for just one linear set of units. While this choice may seem surprising in terms of optimisation, it again avoids the corridor feeling that would be detrimental to the overall impression. Lastly, this kitchen keeps circulation areas pleasant and airy by opting for handleless storage units. As a result, the Gaïa Model - Rive Gauche Trend maximises storage space and offers an easy and pleasant fit-out despite the limited square metres available.


Unique colour combinations

In order to stand out, the Gaïa Model - Rive Gauche Trend makes use of unusual colours. The sage green on the fronts of the sink-side units is a trendy colour becoming more and more popular every year. It adds elegance and softness and pairs easily with other tones. Conversely, the Genoa green used on the tall storage units is deeper and more intense. Both colours share a gloss finish which is better suited to a small surface area such as this. This use of greens marks the boundary between all the service elements of the kitchen and the rest of the space, painted in Peacock blue. For overall harmony, touches of black complete this colour palette. Matt black is used on the door frames and the profiles of the fronts, creating graphic lines. However, the star of the show in this kitchen has to be the Pierredeplan quartz worktop. This mineral material features a unique decor, reproducing the beauty of marble with ingrained veining. And not only is this worktop visually attractive, but since quartz is highly resistant, it has a worktop and wall panel you can always rely on.


A warm and optimised space

For a small kitchen, advice on how best to fit out and maintain a comfortable space is invaluable. The Gaïa Model - Rive Gauche Trend offers a double linear layout. On the worktop side, the upper area is minimalist, with a single wall shelf instead of tall units. This arrangement is deliberately designed to provide a more airy feel overall. On the other side, the tall units offer lots of home storage and state-of-the-art household appliances. Lastly, the Gaïa Model - Rive Gauche Trend features a surprisingly welcoming dining area. With its wall bench and round table, it gives a nod and a wink to chic Parisian bistro style. Ultimately, the layout of this kitchen is comparable to that of a large house.
