Always visible and taking prominence in the kitchen, the surfaces chosen for the space can have a huge influence on the look and feel of the room overall. And when homeowners are looking for a modern family kitchen with a contemporary twist that is in keeping with the otherwise traditional style of their property, CRL Quartz White Water is the perfect solution.
With integrated appliances and ample storage for keeping things clean, clutter-free and minimal, a focal point of the redesigned space is a large island. Topped with White Water, a robust, easy to clean surface that is ideal for cooking, dining, socialising and even home working, the island takes on a two-tone effect that draws the eye.
What’s not immediately obvious, for all the right reasons, is that the worktop itself is seamless, despite the island being over 3 metres long. The kitchen designer, Michael at Oakwood Kitchens of Wakefield found a solution to his client’s requirement for a join-free finish with CRL Quartz, which can be delivered in a large slab format for a seam-free finish. Installation by stone masons Intamarble was straightforward too. With no joins, the surface offers nowhere for dirt or germs to linger and is extremely easy on the eye, while the family’s storage needs are catered for with the extra space the large island affords them.
Welcoming and homely, the worktop works in harmony with the traditional style cabinetry, successfully combining modern and classic elements throughout.
Chosen for all the worktops and featuring inside the pantry areas as an easy to wipe clean surface, CRL Quartz White Water is understated in its simplicity, matched with a glass splashback behind the hob to bounce light around the room and add to the feeling of spaciousness. With intricate soft grey veins running throughout to give it a marble-inspired impression that works so well visually over large areas, the surface creates a feeling of tranquillity which is so important in a busy family kitchen. The surface combines brilliantly with the stainless appliances, wood effect flooring and classic detailing.
Detailed without being too busy, White Water puts a modern twist on to the room’s design, achieving a minimalist yet luxurious look and feel and giving the homeowners the modern family kitchen they had dreamed of.
The finished room is the perfect family space. The large seating area that flows on from the kitchen, looking over the rear garden and fields beyond, allows for easy dining as a family and for dinner parties with friends.
