Our clients said they would love to have a wine cooler fridge but were not sure how they would incorporate one into the room, as the current kitchen layout did not have any flexibility due to appliances and very limited cupboard space all being essential to keep.
First off, we wanted to come up with additional storage solutions for the kitchen area. The clients said they were not going to have stools at the breakfast bar, so we took the opportunity to design cupboards and shelving that could fit under the breakfast bar overhang.. and while investigating this we discovered there was an even deeper void in the corner, allowing us to push a 600mm deep wine cooler in here by removing a section of the breakfast bar back panel. This resulted in a very discreet way to incorporate this additional appliance into the room without needing to occupy any extra floorspace!
We designed shelving either side of the extractor fan along the same style as the breakfast bar area and had a back painted splashback made to protect the walls from splashes etc. We also replaced the white plastic sockets for stainless steel ones in the same finish as the existing steel splashback at the hob. So the result is a more practical kitchen space with storage within easy reach of the hob to make cooking more enjoyable and efficient.
