This kitchen offers a wealth of functionality for its bachelor owner while palette choices make it bold, masculine and relaxing

Designed by Penny del Castillo, In Design International

From the designer:

Who doesn’t love a man who can cook? This bachelor’s life really does revolve around his kitchen, particularly at the moment, as he doesn’t own a dining table yet! 

The kitchen is his main area for entertaining, alone or with guests. It serves as the food storage and prep area along with being used for dining, serving coffee, cocktails and drinks. 

Plus, for now, it doubles up as the electronic hub station home office when required.

Our semi-industrial style capitalises on current available trends in concrete looking surfaces, without the challenges of real concrete in a renovation situation. 

Almost monochromatic in our choices, a heavy use of greys, charcoals and blacks off set with muted metallic and stainless steel make this kitchen bold, masculine and relaxing.

The kitchen boasts an oversized bench and suspended gantry that serves as practical storage, allows for an entertainment factor and also provides the opportunity to express the owner's personal décor style as it may change over the years. 

Flush full height doors and hidden drawers keep the look sleek and easy to maintain.
