As they say, “you always find them in the kitchen at parties”. This is the kitchen they will want to be in!
Maximising usable space, generous storage is integral to the kitchen design. In addition, quality appliances make food prep a breeze, with the inclusion of an integrated microwave crisp and grill, a grand Portofino Smeg freestanding oven, an under-bench Liebherr wine fridge and a Miele dishwasher.
