THIS KITCHEN AND ITS SUPER ISLAND WILL BE YOUR ENVY

If you don’t renounce white, but you want it to have a special touch … If you love island kitchens … If you want your office to be warmer … Take a look at this project, it’s a master lesson.

AN IMPOSING ISLAND

It measures 190 x 150 cm and articulates both the layout and the style of the entire space. It is in the center of a perfect U, supporting each of the 3 zones (fire, water, storage) that make it up. It also includes a breakfast area with stools. In addition, this large island marks the American philosophy of this project carried out by Deulonder.

A BLACK AND WHITE BELL, LIKE THE GROUND

They are the two elements that give this kitchen more character. The owners wanted a white kitchen and the black contrasts give it a supposedly “New York” touch, says Chone de la Sotilla.

IN THE OFFICE WE CHANGE TO WOODEN FLOORS

The floor makes us the difference. This office area was created by combining a bench, flanked by two display cabinets (one on each side) and 3 chairs. As it is a space with a lot of family use, it was intentionally made warmer by upholstering both the chairs and the bench.

TAPPED UP TO THE ROOF

The storage area is in columns. If you look and review all the photos, the only doors you find in the kitchen are here and they are for the fridge and freezer (both paneled) and for a large pantry. In the middle are the oven and microwave, also white.

The lamps are from Deulonder like the screen blinds. Cado cutting wood.

BETTER WITH DRAWERS: A BET ON ORDER

Because if you can see it, you can order and use it much more easily. And because accessing the lowest and interior part of the cabinets is, really, more uncomfortable. That is why we see many drawers. The second commandment of the order is that everything must be where you use it: the oven trays, under the oven, of course.

SHOWCASES LOOK LIGHTER

The cabinets can be open without interfering or taking up space, that is why they are ideal here, in a passage area. Just like the one next to the fires. They are also very special. A double glass contains a linen fabric that with its lightness and transparency achieves a 3 x 1: depth without actually seeing, a lot of warmth and elegance.

For the eating area to be more “collected” the ceiling is lower and stands out with this kind of arch that frames it.

EVERYTHING READY: HAVE BREAKFAST!

Well by hand, this front contains everything you need to start the day with energy: small appliances, kitchenware and food. Aesthetically it also reflects the style of the kitchen combining white with the black lacquered top.

THE IDEAL KITCHEN: A U WITH ISLAND

Looking at the plant we recognize this perfect distribution: the three well-differentiated areas (cooking, preparation and columns with appliances and storage) form a U with a large island in the middle. The change of floor marks the area of ​​passage that separates us from the office. 

That the owners were very clear that they wanted a white kitchen was a great luck because, although we see these large windows, their orientation prevents us from enjoying direct sunlight. With this starting point, Chone de la Sotilla and Berta Olivella de Deulonder were able to begin this lesson on how to style a white and neutral space.

AMERICAN STYLE

Yes, everything has an American flair. A large island and a large bell help to create it. “We have a large family that uses the kitchen a lot and that needs everything to be very practical, that’s why we chose this porcelain floor that imitates the hydraulic one: it gives a lot of character, defines the kitchen and contrasts with the oak parquet”.

The touches of black that the floor announces also highlight that very special and unique design that they have made on the hood.

On the other side of a passing area we find the office. “It works as a dining room almost always, so we try to pack it as much as possible,” says Chone.

WHITE, BLACK AND WOOD!

Although the walls and the storage furniture are still white, when we leave the strictly cooking area, the floor warns us of the change. And wood also appears on the table and chairs to give warmth to this office area. They also add heat, an unusual abuse in upholstery kitchens: on the chairs, the bench, the cushions …

The fabrics were at the whim of the owners who wanted stripes that follow this two-color game of the whole kitchen in the bank.

The lamps on the island and the office also want to remind us of this American dream come true.
