About This Project


This modern and spacious open-plan kitchen diner incorporates a breakfast bar, dining area, and living room.

It is a contemporary true handleless kitchen by Mereway with gloss slab doors in light grey. The island has a concrete-look matte finish in Mereway’s Designer Mineral Anthracite that contrasts so well with the gloss units used everywhere else.

Ticking all the boxes, this is a stylish and practical family kitchen to cook, entertain and relax in.

Paines & Gray Kitchen Design

Coming into the project, our clients had a strong sense of the kitchen style they wanted to achieve.

Working with our suggestions on materials and finishes, they chose a soft grey gloss for the main run of furniture and the concrete look on the island. To further enhance the contemporary scheme, they chose a black mirrored glass splashback. As well as a practical and stylish addition, this creates lovely reflections around the space too, capitalising on all the natural light this kitchen benefits from.

In addition to creating the right aesthetic, a key element of our brief was specifying the right quality of furniture and appliances. Having been disappointed in the quality of the previous kitchen (not a Paines & Gray kitchen, of course!), this time around, our clients wanted to put quality first, so a Mereway kitchen was the obvious choice.

As part of the kitchen renovation, the clients were also keen to use the opportunity to optimise the layout to create a modern, more sociable kitchen diner.

Kitchen style Reigate

To create a better flow throughout the space, we suggested removing an internal wall, which really transformed the room.

This created a fully open-plan layout and enabled us to incorporate a large island around the new central pillar.

Light grey gloss kitchen design

Within the open-plan room, there are defined zones for each element, but the kitchen island is at the heart of it all. It is hard to pick a favourite area, but the sheer size of the island with the fantastic BORA hob and integrated breakfast bar just edges it.

Key Appliances

With beautiful Kairos Dekton worktops, this kitchen is beautifully set up for a keen chef and will host some fabulous get-togethers. With a BORA Classic hob with downdraft extraction, Quooker Cube Flex tap, Liebherr fridge/freezer, The 1810 Company sink, Siemens studioLine ovens and under-counter Caple wine cooler, this kitchen is ready to host.

“My husband and I are just so happy; it just works so much better.”
