From champagne toasts to beans on toast, this magnificent quartz kitchen works for every occasion

Renowned kitchen designer, Rotpunkt, has shown its mastery in the creation of elegant furniture through this opulent kitchen project, based in the village of Wavendon, near Milton Keynes. The German furniture brand was selected by its Buckinghamshire based retailers Olney Kitchens, to craft this elegant exclusive kitchen design.

Olney Kitchens suggested turning to Rotpunkt’s portfolio of quality kitchen furniture to meet the regal ambitions of this rural property. The initial straight-edged industrial design was softened through a beautiful balance of natural materials and serene colours. Olney Kitchens exclusively designed special quartz slabs to frame each separate piece of furniture. The luxurious quartz stone boasts an interesting phaneritic texture, which cleverly contrasts against the sleek white gloss Lucido furniture, by Rotpunkt.

The creamy quartz central island truly steals the show in this kitchen; it’s monolithic proportions and sturdy body make for an impressive visual centrepiece. While to suit the homeowners’ – Mr And Mrs Riley’s – penchant for entertaining, Olney Kitchens selected an infinity-style mirrored drinks cabinet with floating bar shelving, alongside an adjoining wine glass display unit and a mesh stainless steel fronted alcohol store. This zone, like the remainder of the kitchen, is extremely functional and features electric push technology that crafts a seamless handleless run of cabinetry, that are both stylish and easy to clean.

Phil Bardell, Director at Olney Kitchens and lead designer on the project commented: “I really enjoyed working with Mr & Mrs Riley as I was able to put my creative stamp on their new kitchen with some original design details and a select choice of raw materials. On first glance, the quartz slabs seamlessly integrate as part of the white furniture which not only add character but warm the space too. Rotpunkt allow us to take a more tailored approach with our customers, giving us the freedom to create cutting-edge kitchen concepts with a bespoke element. There really is something for all our customers.”
