When offspring grow up and fly the nest but return regularly for catch-ups with the family, it may be time for your home to take on a more grown up feel, as was the case for one couple in Suffolk. Giving their three-storey, five-bedroom home a redesign once the children were all grown became a priority, with a luxury finish an important requirement throughout and nowhere more so than in the kitchen.
A wonderful example of successfully combining a mixture of materials, textures and styles within one open-plan space, the fixtures and fittings chosen for the kitchen in this urban-style property are as multi-functional as the space itself.
Bringing the outside in was important to the homeowners who wanted to enjoy the view of the garden all-year long, and this wasn’t limited to the full-length glass doors giving easy access to the garden, but the material choices for the kitchen itself too. With a concrete effect finish chosen for the cabinetry, designers Kitchenology recommended a Ceralsio Ceramic worktop to work alongside these, with Pewter being the chosen style.
In a space where family and social life frequently combine, it was important for the food preparation areas to work in harmony with the room’s seating areas, as a very visible aspect of the design that ties the entire look together. Ceralsio Pewter worktops feature throughout the kitchen including the island unit and with their slim line profile at just 12mm thick, are the perfect match to the streamlined handle less furniture in creating a seamless, minimal finish.
Ceralsio is a ceramic surface that is extremely durable, and therefore highly suitable for use in the busy family kitchen, offering resilience against scratches, stains, spillages and heat. Pots and pans can be taken straight from the hob to the surface ready for serving and the entire worktop can be kept in a sparkling clean condition with absolute ease due to the sheer durability of the ceramic material.
A contemporary work surface, Ceralsio Pewter sits well against the room’s high-end appliances and use of raw materials including concrete and glass, and high gloss white fixtures, to create a space that any keen chef would be certain to fall in love with and will wow guests when it is time to throw a dinner party for friends and family.
Creating an urban look that is very much on-trend, yet timeless in its elegance, Ceralsio Pewter has an extremely tactile textured finish that is the perfect addition to this industrial-style setting, with its elegant, clear-cut design that is perfect for this modern family home. The result is a multi-purpose surface for a multi-purpose space that will look good day and night.
Creating a striking contrast between the classic and modern, the Ceralsio worktop will see the homeowners good for many years to come, with its high resistance to wear and tear, hygienic, non-porous surface and beautiful colouring bound to be a talking point for all the right reasons.
