An Opulent, Modern Masterpiece – The Bayswater Project by The Main Company

Following a full house refurbishment, this impressive and unique kitchen on the lower ground floor of this Bayswater home is a testament to contemporary design, functionality and space optimisation.

The brief was to create a culinary haven that embraced dark tones and modern amenities, while being incredibly sophisticated. Designed and installed by The Main Company, the striking colour scheme is what draws the eye in, featuring a full floor to ceiling black palette with a selection of contrasting features to add depth and texture to the space.

Starting with the dark wood parquet planks which introduce welcome pattern to the floor, the interest moves up onto the dark-stained, grooved band sawn oak cabinets accompanied by Buster & Punch brass hardware, the black painted walls and into the matching ceiling. Other brass features are highlighted via the bar stool legs and pendant fittings, paired with a chunky white quartz countertop with thick black veining to counterbalance the palette – resulting in a truly eye-catching centrepiece.

With limited space in this compact kitchen, smart storage solutions, integrated appliances and space-enhancing design elements were key. The final layout consists of a single-wall configuration with a grey foxed mirror splashback to create the illusion of space – paired with a peninsula island. A multi-functional marvel, not only does the island house a modern integrated hob with in-built extraction, eliminating the need for a bulky hood, but it also accommodates a wine fridge and ample bar stool seating for three guests.

As part of the cabinetry, winged doors have been added to some of the wall cabinets, maximising space for the homeowner, while appliances such as the fridge, microwave, oven and luxury coffee machine have been added into the tall units.

A smart layered lighting scheme has been added to allow total flexibility at different times of day. To illuminate the dark space, overhead spotlights and three hanging pendant lights draw the eye up, whilst under cabinet lighting helps to illuminate the worktops and bounce light around the room with the help of the splashback.

The outcome is a practical kitchen design that is both streamlined and visually arresting, catering to the needs of the homeowner who needed a kitchen for everyday use and to entertain friends and family.
