Sage, Steel and Oak Kitchen

Stylish Sage, Steel and Old Forest Oak open-plan Kitchen

Our journey began with a client who envisioned more than just a kitchen renovation. With the addition of an extension, they saw an opportunity to transform their space into a more open-plan layout with a contemporary yet warm Sage, Steel and Old Forest Oak kitchen.

This led us to explore the concept of an island-centric kitchen, a departure from their current peninsula design. Envisioning a central hub where delightful culinary creations and conversation while cooking could take place. The island with Neff Hob serves as a practical workspace but also features a wrap-around breakfast bar area, inviting guests to pull up a stool and join in.


Inspiration & Design

Inspiration often strikes unexpectedly, and for our client, it came in the form of a colour sample ‘Bauformat Sage’ that captivated their imagination. Drawing further inspiration from our Rot Punkt Memory RI display, they embraced the idea of incorporating oak accents into the design.

The Sage, Steel, and white quartz worktops imbue the space with freshness and light, while the Old Forest Oak wall units add warmth and character. Complemented by a subtle yet striking glass splashback, every element contributes to a cohesive and inviting atmosphere.


Style & Function

Their vision for the project was underpinned by a desire for a highly functional and practical space. With a focus on accessibility and ease of use, we meticulously integrated internal pull-outs and drawers throughout the kitchen and implemented extra tall units to capitalise on vertical space. These thoughtful additions minimise the clutter and ensure that every item has its designated place ensuring we successfully addressed their storage needs without compromising on style or sophistication.

We approached the utility room with the same level of attention to detail and design excellence as the kitchen, from versatile storage solutions and boot room-inspired bench area to rustic-chic accents, every element had been carefully considered to elevate the everyday experience for our clients.
