Sand-coloured kitchen with Nordic design
Ditte Julie has expertly crafted a sand-coloured kitchen that seamlessly blends the elegance of Nordic design with exceptional functionality. The kitchen strikes the perfect harmony between simplicity and the distinctive, raw beauty of a ceramic worktop, resulting in a truly unique and inviting space.
At home with...
Ditte Julie is a multi-talented individual, known for her skills in communication, design, and entrepreneurship. She's also a successful cookbook author and a passionate speaker.
In 2021, Ditte Julie took on the ambitious project of revitalizing an older villa, a house that was in need of significant attention and care. Instead of opting for the conventional route of tearing down the house and constructing a standard replacement, she was determined to preserve the building's rich history and character. This commitment led her to embark on an extensive renovation and expansion project, which included a redesign of the kitchen.
"The kitchen acts as the central focal point of the house. It's where family and friends gather, creating an atmosphere of both harmony and spaciousness"
- Ditte Julie
Choice of materials
Ditte Julie wanted to bring the colors of nature into her kitchen. So she chose a laminate front in a deep, dark sandy color and a distinctive worktop with warm brownish tones. This choice creates a connection to the natural world and adds a warm and inviting feel to the kitchen.
The sand colored kitchen doors in Base Laminate have a lovely matte finish made from acrylic. This makes them simple to clean, and you can easily get rid of minor scratches.
The ceramic worktop is a Dekton Trillum. In addition to having a beautiful characterful appearance, this worktop is heat-resistant and highly durable.
A cabinet solution that enhances organization
In the tall cabinet, Ditte Julie opted for a clever addition – the Tandem pull-out. This pull-out comes with an additional shelf system attached to the door, offering a complete view of the contents. This is an improvement over fixed shelves where reaching items at the back can be challenging.
Appliances and aesthetics
The built-in appliances contribute to the kitchen's sleek appearance. Combined with the black oven, stove, and wine cooler, they seamlessly merge with the overall design, creating a sense of harmony.
The AEG dishwasher is beautifully integrated into the sand coloured kitchen design.
The matt black oven from AEG is positioned at worktop height, ensuring both high functionality and great design.
The elegant wine cooler in the kitchen island adds a touch of homely luxury.
Hob with integrated cooker hood
In her former kitchen studio, Ditte Julie had experienced the convenience of a cooktop with a built-in extractor hood, and she was fond of it. So, it was a natural decision for her to integrate an induction cooktop with an integrated extractor hood into her own kitchen.
She opted for an AEG Extractor hob, which featured a robust, built-in cooker hood. With this combined hob and extractor hood design, Ditte Julie had the flexibility to explore innovative placement options and ultimately chose to install the hob in the kitchen island.
The all-purpose tap
Quooker was the perfect choice for Ditte Julie, aligning with her desire for an elegant kitchen mixer with versatile functions. She opted for the Quooker Fusion in burnished brass, a faucet that not only complements the kitchen's design but also accentuates functionality.
The Quooker Fusion provides cold, hot, and boiling water, and as an extra benefit, it can even deliver chilled sparkling water.
The personalised details
The kitchen's appeal lies in the personal choices and distinctive details. These elements set the stage for genuine kitchen affection. For Ditte Julie, who has two children that thoroughly enjoy spending time in the kitchen, the kitchen's design needed to accommodate them as well.
The kitchen island's foundation includes a pull-out drawer that doubles as a convenient stool for children. This clever addition enables them to easily access the kitchen activities and participate in the cooking process.
Towards the end of the kitchen wall, there's a cozy nook where children can sit and watch the kitchen activity or where you can enjoy your morning coffee.
