A long kitchen with a central island
Give priority to a modern aesthetic, in the extension of the living room, while favoring storage!
The couple's wishes.
When the customer moved into their new apartment with their 1-year-old son, they had to put aside their dreams of distant travel for a while.
But they will enjoy skiing, hiking and the lake... without forgetting a few weekends of do-it-yourself work to completely renovate their new family cocoon.
How to fit out a 93 m2 surface, without any partition, while creating a large harmonious living space?
A very specific problem entrusted to the Mobalpa designer.
The opinion of the kitchen designer
As the apartment was being renovated, it was possible to adapt the surface area of the kitchen to the proposed technical plans. Thus, the partition of the room could be made to measure, facilitating the mission of our designer so that the kitchen "becomes one" with the living space of the apartment.
The secret of this kitchen?
The creation of a large, very functional pantry/laundry room (containing the oven and fridge), extended by a cupboard on the entrance side and niches on the living room side.
Modernity and functionality of the large shelves
For this lengthwise kitchen, the cooking area and the sink have been placed on the wall, with black matte varnish high cabinets hiding the hood. Large white matte varnish pull-outs facilitate storage.
Although the customers wanted a black kitchen, our designer also suggested that they add white to reinforce the clean lines, and then warm it up with a touch of Burgundy oak.
Choosing the right worktop
For this project, the couple opted for a 12 mm thick glossy white quartz, very sober but above all very resistant. Ideal for a large island in a kitchen with a dining area. And for a work surface over 3 meters long, the practical and decorative idea was to extend it with a wood-colored laminate, to make a much appreciated coffee machine space, especially in the morning before leaving for the office.
What storage space on the living room side?
Under the central island, the watchword was to keep the living room's sleek look. So furniture without handles, to make you forget the kitchen, and touchless doors with black and white fronts were made to match the whole. Not to mention the reminder of Burgundy oak found in the niches and doors.
The icing on the cake?
Custom-made storage cabinets facing the entrance of the apartment, with very elegant and sober full-height doors. And the addition of living room furniture in the same colors, for a kitchen that blends perfectly with the rest of the living room... and vice versa.
