Black gloss wall tiles behind the cooktop enhance the depth of the aubergine, while chrome door handles and stainless steel appliances work as a crisp contrast. “I added a few decorative items and touches of green for freshness and interest,” says the owner. For flooring, the owners choose colored concrete with a large grid imprint. The concrete adds warmth and texture to the room and creates interesting effects when combined with timber. Linda Christensen developed the concrete theme by introducing a Trowel laminate benchtop across two sides of the kitchen. “Trowel laminate looks like concrete. It has all the swirls and smears you get when you run a trowel over wet concrete. It has a totally smooth finish although it creates an almost three-dimensional textured appearance” she says.
An open-plan kitchen flows easily and works as an unobtrusive part of a spacious living or dining area. The Linda Christensen design includes crisp contrasts in aubergine, stainless steel, black wood, and colored concrete. This concrete floor was created specifically to match's kitchen color scheme. Concrete popular for its heat retention, comparative cost benefits and because easy to look after. Black gloss wall tiles are a striking backdrop to the stainless steel range hood and oven.
