The story of this delightful kitchen is shared by designer Irene Press.
This is a classically-styled kitchen with a rather timeless design. The doors are made of painted profile panels.
The feel depends on the color one chooses for the doors. If the doors were gray, for example, we could say that it is a Scandinavian kitchen. If white, then English style. In this case, however, green gives a slightly Slavic feel to this kitchen.
The worktop is a high-pressure laminate with oak effect. Compared to solid wood, high-pressure laminate is maintenance-free. If you want a wood-pattern kitchen worktop in your home, yet have no interest in oiling hardwood surfaces (usually twice a year), then high-pressure laminate with wood effect is a good alternative.
The carcass is made with melamine coating (again, with wood-effect).
The lights are warm white in spectrum, in order to get a homely feel.
The appliances were chosen so as to bring in a touch of history. Another goal I had in mind was to demonstrate the option of integrating a so-called large oven. The integrated oven is wider than usual. If standard ovens are 60 cm wide, then this oven is 20-30 cm wider.
My favorite detail in this kitchen is the sink. In the past, bustling about in my own kitchen, I had to occasionally take the bigger oven pots to the bathroom because due to their size I had no other place to wash them. This Villeroy & Boch sink has a really good capacity, it is convenient and easy to clean – so it is ace! :)
