The minimal lines of a contemporary kitchen can often be perceived as plain and uninspired but not at Beau-Port Kitchens. If you are looking for a unique kitchen and an innovative design you are in the right place. The kitchen was installed in a Newbury apartment with far reaching views of the race course. It, featured integrated subtle warm lighting, set back to highlight the solid oak framing, hand made bespoke handles and floating shelves. Bathed in soft warm light, the solid oak detailing complements the handmade units, painted in rich green" Hunter Dunn" from the Paint and Paper Library. The painted furniture is built into a solid oak framed recess, creating a feature wall which houses the fridge, freezer and handmade bespoke pantry style store cupboard in addition to a bank of sleek black eye-level ovens which reflect the greens of the racecourse beyond the kitchen. The far end has been designed as open shelved storage, lined in oak its the perfect space for tea and coffee making. Above is an illuminated cupboard with a feature door. Made of glass and painted panels it adds interest and detail to the clean lines of the contemporary design.
A beautifully veined Quartz work top extends under the open shelves and includes a moulded sink and mid height splash back. Cascading over the peninsular unit it creates an eye-catching, seamless waterfall design. The peninsular includes seating for two people in addition to an induction hob with a rise a fall extractor. Protecting those seated at the breakfast bar from heat and splashes, it provides clear sight lines with no unsightly ducting and enables the cook to be in the centre of the kitchen, and engage with the guests as it overlooks the seating and dinning area. At the rear of the peninsular below the work top, are push to open and close cupboards, neatly hidden behind the bar stools.
Jacob, Beau-Port Kitchens designer for the project maximised storage with deep drawers for pans and cookware, concealed, handmade, solid wood, dovetail drawers which include cutlery spaces, a spice drawer, and a knife block, in addition to a Le Mans retractable corner unit. The Peninsular unit was painted in "Wattle11" from the Paint and Paper Library, providing the perfect contrast to the mellow woodland tones.It included deep pan draws to the front ideally located for both the ovens and the hob. In addition to storage cupboards to the rear with push to open and close mechanisms, set back to allow for legroom when seated at the peninsular, they have a solid oak trim to match the handle profiles in the rest of the kitchen, providing a seamless design statement. The client supplied their own pendant lighting in copper and glass in addition to pops of colour on the bar stools in gentle pastel shades. Flush oak plinths on the rear of the peninsular unit complete the contemporary design, recessed plinths to the front of the peninsular includes hand carved ventilation openings.
