This kitchen has been designed, with the focus on the original house construction, style and expression.
After thorough consultation, together with our client we have chosen the model: 'Chalet Honed Sand' (from our German kitchen supplier Kuchentime / Nobilia) for their new kitchen. The beautiful worktop is 'Granit Maron Baltico'. The walls are rendered to a smooth surface and painted white, while the windows and doors are kept in dark wood.
Please enjoy the final result on these before and after pictures.
Now there's a lot more free space for the kitchen accessories!
