Clontarf | Modern Kitchen
A unique blend of visual, textural and practical design has come together to create this bright and enjoyable Clonfarf kitchen.
Working with the owners interior designer, Anita Mitchell, we decided to take inspiration from the spectacular view and make it a key feature of the design using a variety of finishes and textures to add visual interest to the space and work with the natural light. Photos by Eliot Cohen
What Houzz contributors are saying:
The height of your island can also be designed in two levels, with the working area set at a comfortable height for standing prep work and the dining area lower or higher to accommodate chairs or bar stools, depending on your preference.If you would like to incorporate table-height dining into your island, make the table 750 millimetres high. Regular dining chairs will then be suitable for use.Don’t forget to take the thickness of your benchtop into account when specifying the height of your kitchen island. Benchtop materials vary from stainless steel, which is only a few millimetres thick, to average-thickness laminate at around 33 millimetres, all the way up to 40-millimetre-thick granite benchtops. If you have chosen varying benchtop materials in different areas of your kitchen, keep in mind that the difference in thickness between the materials should be kept to a maximum of 3 millimetres. Try to keep surface levels within 2 millimetres of each other, unless you are drastically changing heights, for example with the addition of a dining-table-height bench.
