Paines & Gray Kitchen Design
The starting point for this kitchen was actually the sink!
Seen on display in our showroom, our clients immediately loved the large stylish 1810 Company sink in black. Choosing this sink began to inspire design choices throughout the kitchen, aligning modern features with classic design to achieve a sympathetic but contemporary restoration.
As part of the new design, we altered the kitchen layout to move the sink to the island rather than leave it on the back wall. Positioning the sink centrally on the island changed the flow around the kitchen, making it a more practical and sociable space. The Quooker CUBE tap is the cherry on top, providing boiling, filtered and sparkling water.
The big sink is perfect for a family who love to cook and host, and fits all the large Aga pots and pans. As well as being a stylish and practical feature, the sink proved to be the perfect accompaniment to the quartz top chosen for the kitchen island.
This stunning quartz is Calacutta black. The striking black veins of the quartz are contemporary and bold, creating a great contrast between the classic shaker cabinets and the island. The island is a real design statement, especially with the waterfall edge feature, where the quartz continues seamlessly from the worktop down to the floor.
