Carpentry kitchen with exquisite details
Linda Elmin, an interior designer with a track record of guiding clients towards HTH kitchens, had no hesitation in choosing one for herself. Nordic Creation was a perfect fit for her desires, making the decision easy. "When I came across Nordic Creation, there was no hesitation. It felt as if it had been tailored to our wishes," Linda affirms.
A home infused with soul
Norwegian resident Linda Elmin shares her home with her partner Kenneth and her two children, Zara (20) and Nicolai (17). They live in a 1950s house that Linda inherited from her grandparents. Linda is an interior architect and manages the Instagram profile @hviit.
”We aimed for a natural oak shade, and I adore the solid wood fronts with finger-jointed intricacies. It's a nod to exceptional traditional craftsmanship."
Carpentry kitchen with subtle appliances
Linda and Kenneth's kitchen seamlessly flows into the living room and dining space of their home, fostering a strong wish for both visual allure and discreet, integrated appliances.
The couple has skilfully merged the elegant oak wood from Nordic Creation with a sophisticated, dark cabinet wall composed of Base Black matte laminate fronts. This harmonious blend extends to the matte black appliances from AEG, crafting a cohesive aesthetic.
Innovative and essential kitchen details
It's the little details that make a difference and define a well-designed kitchen.
A tall cabinet in the kitchen cleverly conceals a chimney and preserves the streamlined appearance. With a depth of just 12 cm, this cabinet is ideal for storing glasses and cups while maintaining the clean look.
The corner cabinet includes a smartly adjustable door, designed to accommodate the toaster and Kenneth's coffee machine in a convenient and discreet manner.
The installed Quooker is used daily for cooking and cleaning purposes, and especially for the numerous cups of tea that Linda enjoys throughout the day.
The social kitchen
"We enjoy baking and cooking together and need a lot of countertop space," says Linda. The chosen kitchen island provides space for both cooking and homework and opens up opportunities for social interaction.
Articulate your needs and express your desires
Linda, drawing from her experience in assisting numerous families with their kitchen projects, offers valuable advice for those embarking on their own kitchen endeavours:
Consult an expert: Don't hesitate to seek guidance from a professional and explore alternative solutions beyond the conventional choices. Many options can be tailored to suit your specific preferences.
Thoughtful planning: Decide on the items you intend to store in your cabinets and drawers, and carefully assess how you'll navigate within the kitchen space. The more careful thought and consideration you invest, the more rewarding the outcome will be.
”We meticulously arranged the placement of items, allowing us to customize details like shelf height in the cabinet to match the decanter and glass dimensions."
Functional and beautiful worktop
Linda opted for a calm splashback design without tiles. Rather than the conventional tile choice, she innovatively extended the worktop by 20 cm to cover the splashback.
This elegant worktop extension not only imparts character and charm to the kitchen but also serves a practical purpose by shielding the wall from water splashes.
