            Filled with indulgent hues, authentic features, and sensory surfaces, this kitchen makeover with Scarlette Douglas demonstrates how to build a black cooking area that will create a statement.

            • Passion for property

              With more than 10 years experience renovating properties of all shapes and sizes, Scarlette had a clear vision for her new scheme.
            • A boutique base

              By pairing handleless units with slab door-fronts in a black tone, Scarlette's design replicates the sophisticated look of exclusive venues.

            The design details

            • Dramatic shades

              Creating a design that was different from the norm was important to Scarlette, which is why she chose a charcoal shade for her cabinetry.
            • Authentic surfaces

              Scarlette’s quartz counter introduced a durable feature that also matched the colour of her cupboards for an effortlessly chic layout.
            • Contemporary cabinetry

              Complementing her striking door-fronts, Scarlette picked slate-grey, handleless units to ensure the layout looked on-trend inside and out.
            • A sultry sink-bowl

              Thanks to its sturdy, composite build and statement hue, Scarlette’s black sink bridges the gap between fashion and function.
            • Built-in cooking

              To emphasise the streamlined look, Scarlette stacked built-in equipment in a tower unit for a contemporary cooking zone.
            • Concealed cooling

              A clutter-free design would give her bold theme maximum impact, so Scarlette selected integrated refrigeration, tucked behind a cupboard door.
            • Going pro with gas

              Scarlette wanted a practical scheme that was also stylish. Her gas stove ticks both boxes by adding classic character and precision cooking.
            • Dishes in a doddle

              A dishwasher was a must-have for Scarlette’s home, so she chose a model with plenty of programmes to make light work of washing up.
