The Main Company specify Caesarstone's 4004 Raw Concrete worktops for a reclaimed oak and teal-drenched London kitchen.

When it came to renovating the kitchen in their Chelsea, London cottage, this family sought out a clean yet punchy, personality-infused aesthetic. To achieve this, The Main Company selected Caesarstone’s 4004 Raw Concrete worktops and Little Greene’s ‘Tea With Florence’ paint for the cabinets. The designers then balanced out the teal-drenched space with organic touches, such as reclaimed Weathered Barn Oak timber cladding and flooring.

Alex Main, Director at The Main Company explains, “The client wanted the kitchen to feel open and not overcrowded, all while gaining as much storage as possible. We made efficient use of space by installing floor-to-ceiling cupboards in one corner of the kitchen, whilst keeping the rest of the room minimal with open shelves rather than additional upper cabinets. This allows for plenty of storage without cluttering the kitchen and making it feel smaller.”

New kitchen in Swan Cottage using Caesarstone 4004 Raw Concrete worktop The Main Company designed a timber peninsula island topped with Raw Concrete – an ideal solution for island lovers who may not have a kitchen large enough for a standalone island. This layout allows the clients to cook while talking to guests at the nearby dining table. The peninsula also provides added worktop space for preparing meals.

When asked why The Main Company selected Caesarstone Raw Concrete for this design, Alex Main explained: “We specify Caesarstone worktops in many of our projects and have always been reassured that we’re recommending a reliable and beautiful product for our clients. We chose Raw Concrete for this project because it brings a tranquil yet contemporary edge to the space. The worktop creates an industrial look that beautifully complements the striking teal while perfectly contrasting with organic tones of the wood.”

To match the worktops, exposed stainless steel appliances from Fisher & Paykel were installed alongside metal pendant lights and knurled hardware.
