Odd Shaped Kitchens
Stunning kitchens can be created even with awkard or odd shaped spaces. The shape of the kitchen should not be a deterrent rather a way to create a custom masterpiece!
Recently we undertook in a kitchen with the goal to increase storage, functionality and modernise the space.
From a tired and run down kitchen to a vibrant work of art.
How to increase storage
1. Make use of space
Whilst angles can be a challenge, use the space by creating custom cabinetry to suit. The cabinets were diligently designed around the angles to maximise storage. Our client had a goal to achieve storage for a bar, so we opt for glass doors to display their bottles and glassware, designed a bench that would work within the narrow space provided and added storage below.
2. Make use of Corner cabinet - Hettich Le-Man
Hate bending into the back of the corner cabinet? Don't we all! We are a huge fan of this intelligently designed corner unit "Le-Man" that requires no bending and instead pulls beautifully out towards you accessing the whole space. With a weight capacity of 25kg imagine all the items you could store in that space.
3. Deeper Drawer storage
Do you have an area with the potential for deeper storage or perhaps a small area that you would still like narrow drawers? Well the great news is there are a range of drawer runners depths perfect to suit your space. Shown in the newly completed kitchen below we customised the design by adding deeper drawers. What a great way to increase storage!
3. Create the Illusion of space
The kitchen doors, bench top and splash back play a big role in contributing to the illusion of space. This kitchen with white doors and white bench top reflects light and enchances the concept of space, while the splash back bounces light deep into the room making it appear larger.
