Discover how a traditional kitchen in Mimet, a quaint location nestled between Aix and Marseille, is transformed into a stylish country-inspired space with minimal alterations.
Our main mission was to revamp an old Provencal kitchen, keeping the original structure intact, yet bringing about a fresh and updated look. A significant factor to note is the absence of a requirement for any demolition work, thus keeping the task as unintrusive as possible.
We primarily focused on optimizing the space and adding functionality. A remarkable addition was the creation of a table extending directly from the worktop, providing a convenient spot for meals.
The redesigned kitchen exhibits a rich, country vibe, achieved by the use of natural materials. The existing niches and the hood of the room were not discarded, but rather given a fresh coat of paint for a renewed appearance. The exposed ceiling beams were also painted, and optical illusion stripes were introduced to lend depth to the ceiling. The kitchen's overall design was rendered using noble and natural materials.
- The cupboards were crafted from Burgundy oak
- The splashback and worktop were made from stoneware
- The floor was laid with Travertine
The kitchen was intelligently arranged to cater to everyday family needs. All existing appliances were retained and subtly integrated into the new design. The introduction of a custom corner cupboard offered additional storage, making the room more practical and attractive.
The result is a kitchen that is simultaneously modern and bright, yet still exudes the charm of a classic country Provencal kitchen.
