For this kitchen the client brought in a photo of a kitchen island made entirely of concrete slabs that she wanted to replicate.

Recreating this island look was very important to her, and most of the kitchen design process revolved around this. We achieved the replica of the concrete island by using 80mm thick laminate tops in Concrete Formwood, and also included multiple negative details throughout the island to further mimic concrete slabs.

Another important feature the client wanted incorporated was tidy, clean lines throughout the contemporary kitchen. The handle-less design of the cabinetry creates this look seamlessly.
