Tec Kitchens finished design and installation projects

There is nothing better than sharing one of Tec Kitchens finished design and installation projects and this kitchen/family room is simply gorgeous.

More and more people are improving rather than moving and if you are happy with the area you live in but would just like a little more space and are lucky enough to have enough garden to steal from then it is a very easy option.

This kitchen is filled with state of the art appliances and units and has a huge island that is a design feature in itself.  So let’s start there.


The island measures 3.7m long by 1.12 wide and has a bespoke Cimstone Quartz “Arcadia” 30mm shark nose edged work top with built in 4 plug socket recess and a Blanco Sil Granite Prep Sink with a Grohe Minta Tap in chrome.  It also has a Siemens Induction Hob with a Falmec Prestige cooker hood.  The units below are in Terra Oak and come from our range of german manufactured kitchens.

The attention to detail in the worktop is stunning and it really is a tactile as well as beautiful surface.


The rest of the kitchen, as well as the tv and shelving units are in Polar White High Gloss Lacquer and are handleless.  They give clean lines that are a design feature in themselves but because of the mixture of finishes in the kitchen they are never clinical.  The L shaped work surface is Compac Quartz “Plomo” 30mm and there is another Blanco Sil Granite sink with a Grohe Red Duo Boiling Tap.

All of the electrical goods were supplied by Siemens and as well as a Compact Combi Steam Oven the star of show for the wine connoisseurs out there at least is the Siemens Wine Cooler, it takes up to 98 bottles of wine with two independently controlled temperature zones for professional storage of red and white wines.  Wow!!



tec-kitchens7From the initial site visit to measure and plan, to the final technical drawings our team pay attention to detail at every point.  Once the kitchen was finalised a TV unit and a shelving unit were planned using the same Polar White High Gloss Lacquer units and they work so well in pulling what is quite a large space together.




The mix of finishes in this room creates warmth and individuality and the neutral tones mean that the clients have a space that they can accessorise with an accent colour that is so much easier to change over time than the units themselves.

Two tone kitchens are very ‘on trend’ at the moment and allow you to use multiple finishes, so if you love two types of finish have them both!  The white handleless units make the wall units all but disappear and make the island an even more eye-catching centre piece.
