“We added an aluminium appliance cupboard to conceal the small appliances and other items they needed to have close at hand. It keeps the clutter hidden.” James says although it seems simple, there is a wealth of detailing in the kitchen. A work counter in front of the window features concealed drawers with 45° arris corners, for example. Rift Melamine on the sides of the island wraps around the base to enclose the unit. And drawers include wooden liners for cutlery – all simple touches that add a touch of refinement.
