A Contemporary Grey and White Open Plan Intuo Kitchen

Alton, Hampshire

This contemporary kitchen is designed by Searle & Taylor with  furniture from Austrian manufacturer, Intuo. Featuring glass fronts, the grey tall units combine perfectly with the white cabinetry. A huge kitchen island is the central focus of the kitchen with a matching Silestone worktop and all appliances are by Neff.


Contemporary open plan kitchen and lifestyle space.

What Searle & Taylor created:

Due to the extremely generous size of the room the owner wanted to explore every option so that the space was maximised for a large family and regular entertaining and a large island unit of an unusual shape was always part of the brief. Using cabinetry by Austrian brand, Intuo we designed the largest island possible for the kitchen whilst taking into account a sensible gap all the way around. We also had to consider the large glass ceiling lanterns and position a ceiling extractor between these. Therefore, the position of the hob was very important as the extractor had to be directly over it to ensure it worked to its optimum level.

The island was too big to have the Silestone quartz worktop made from one single slab; instead, we create two thicknesses, which also provided contrast. The seating section is built up to 80mm whereas the working side of the island is 20mm. To work with the vast amount of windows in the room a two-tone kitchen was designed using glass fronted Intuo cabinets in Quartz contrasted with Panna colourways.

This kitchen is highly functional because almost all the base units are pull-outs and the ovens are positioned in tall cabinets. Appliances are by Neff: together with the bank of four ovens and large warming drawers, the tall run of Anthracite units holds a full height fridge, full height freezer and two full height larder units with internal pull-out drawers. The plinth beneath was specially ordered in stainless steel slats to provide the necessary airflow required for the integrated fridge/freezer.
