Black and Yellow Valchromat Kitchen

About the Project

As featured on Grand Designs, this striking kitchen is made of Valchromat; a durable, high-density board that is stained during the manufacturing process rather than coloured or finished afterwards.


To one side is a long run of bespoke black units that house a fridge, a freezer and a larder as well as a bookcase, a tall configuration of Blum Legrabox drawers and a worktop section complete with surface-mounted electrical points.


On the other side of the space is a series of low black units that feature a combination of drawers and doors whilst also offering further worktop space with plenty of easy-access electrical sockets.


In the centre of the kitchen is a large mustard yellow island which holds the hob, sink and dishwasher and even more storage space. Finished with Franke’s exclusive ceramic-coated, water- and fingerprint-proof stainless steel, the island unit doubles up as an expansive worktop and as a place to sit and eat.


We chose the contrasting colour way to bring warmth to the contemporary kitchen by highlighting the central island as the heart of the room without softening the space’s bold industrial aesthetic.
