On the hunt for a kitchen supplier for their home renovation at a Grand Designs Live show, the owners discovered Stoneham and were commited to using them to help achieve their dreams of a modern, minimalist look.

Stoneham Kitchens designer Emily-Ann Lloyd created a look that included two types of cabinets in Stoneham Flow and Fusion ranges with recessed handles for practicality and to create a streamline effect, Inspired by the simplicity of handleless kitchen design imagery found on Pinterest.

As well as having a minimal, modern finish, the kitchen had to suit the long room and compliment the natural daylight that flooded through. Storage space was also essential along with a large kitchen island for family members to stand around.

The space was already bright and light-filled thanks to large glazed doors and roof lights, however, the existing skylights were repositioned to brighten the kitchen further. Sensio Duoflex light strips under the worktops offer mood and ambience lighting that can be switched for cool to warm, while a brass pole pendant light, matching the proportions of the island, offers some warmth and character to the design.
