Holmside Kitchen

On overall design of a domestic kitchen in Newcastle.

We did the layout and design, and helped to choose colours and materials. Made the tall and wall units, shelves to go in the island unit and co-ordinated the worktops. The overall design is playful and simple with colours that throwback to the heydays of formica. Indeed the coloured laminates were provided by the local Formica factory in Wallsend, that is still going strong.

The wall units are purposely random heights and depths to give interest and variety across the back wall. Some are lit with LED strips to enhance the display and provide lower levels of lighting to the space. All plywood edges are enhanced to show off the beauty of the material.
