Leicht Battersea kitchen design studio has recently completed a modern kitchen design for a family home in Tonbridge featuring quartz worktop and kitchen island surfaces from Caesarstone.

luxury kitchen designVicky Bratt, showroom manager and designer at Leicht Battersea, was briefed with developing a family space with a clean, contemporary aesthetic, as well as a very functional kitchen.

Vicky described the family’s needs: “The client desired a family space where her children could sit at a breakfast bar for their morning meal. Also, storage was important, and the completed project demonstrates this with slide away doors and plenty of storage space within the crisp, clean design”.

The neutral colour of the cabinetry was complimented by Caesarstone’s 5141 Frosty Carrina quartz worktops, a design based on an elegant soft ivory white base with delicate powdery grey veins, resulting in a sophisticated ambience for the kitchen.

Whilst inspired by classic Italian Bianco Carrara marbles, 5141 Frosty Carrina offers ease of maintenance; like all Caesarstone quartz worktop surfaces Frosty Carrina is non-porous resulting in a stain-resistant surface that does not require the regular sealing required with a natural marble.

Combining with the fresh aesthetic, wood grains on the wall cabinets and central kitchen island provided a gentle contrast for the colourway.

The brief for a breakfast bar was key to the design of the integrated island that offered dining space, as well as more storage for the family.

Also featured in the design was a Siemens A Cool refrigerator/freezer combination, complete with wine-cooler, perfect for hosting guests. Similarly, a drinks cabinet with slide-away doors and internal lighting was also indicative of how the dual priorities of clever storage and suitability for entertaining was met.

The choice of a premium quartz brand in Caesarstone for the worktops was representative of the quality of premium manufacturers selected for appliances throughout the project, with the choice of a Blanco sink and Quooker boiled water tap completing the scheme.
