Hi, I absolutely love this kitchen! I have read all of the above comments, but wondering where the above-stove range is from? It fits so perfectly under the cabinets, you can barely see it. I have been searching for something like this. Thank you!

Dear Lisa, the project was completed a couple of years ago, so I don't remember all details. If I am not mistaken the white comby oven/microwave is from Bosch range.

A couple of questions please. Can you share the manufacturer of the cabinet laminate? I'm struggling to find this shade (light walnut). Also, the porcelain tiles...How were you able to make the marbling appear to cross multiple tiles? It appears to be a single surface. Were they large tiles?

Sorry for the delayed reply. The colour of the finish is individual for each manufacturer so you need to choose from what's your supplier can offer. Re tiles - it's not a single piece. The transition effect was achieved by carefully matching the pattern between two tiles.

Hi there - I love this tile! Does anyone know if I'd be able to find something similar in Canada? Also - what is this one in particular called? I looked on the website but I couldn't decipher which one it is. Thanks!

Magnetic Porcelain

Hi Rowgub! We're a distributor in Canada (Toronto area) and have two very similar products. They're both made in Italy and retail for $8-12/sqft, depending on the size (12"x24" up to 24"x48"). We're currently having a sale at 45% off retail. We ship for free, nation-wide! I can send you free samples if you'd like, just send me a message.

It was in the main range of Boche appliances but unfortunately it was discontinued. I wanted to use it for another project in few years time, but couldn’t find it anywhere.

Sink Dimensions and Material - Hello, this is my favorite picture in all of Houzz! Could you please tell me, what is the dimension of the sink and what material is it made of? Does it stain/scratch easily? I love the look of this sink, but wonder if stainless steel might be a lower-maintenance choice for my kitchen. Thank you for your time.

The company who made all the joinery on that project is GIQ Design. It's a small but very innovative Italian manufacture who do bespoke cabinets and supply them directly from Italy.

The dims are about 1,7x2,5m. I designed the kitchen first and then build the walls around it.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Jo Simmons added this to Houzz Tour: A Studio Makes the Most of Every Inch
The kitchen used to be barely functional, but by taking down a partition wall that sat in front of this window, Alexeeva improved its dimensions. “It was more like a bar, with just a kettle and sink, than a kitchen,” she says. “In order to fit in all the necessary appliances, I designed the kitchen first and then built the walls around it, with the help of Battersea Builders.” To limit costs Alexeeva chose porcelain tiles that look like marble for the backsplash. “The apartment really lacked a touch of luxury,” Alexeeva says, “but these look like the real thing.”Porcelain tiles: The London Tile & Mosaic Company
Jo Simmons added this to Smart Ways to Make the Most of a Compact Kitchen
Use every nook and cranny. It sounds obvious, but where space is tight, it’s essential to make use of all of it. This might mean commissioning custom units. Shelves or cupboards designed for your space, rather than bought off the shelf, can exploit even the most awkward corners or weirdly angled rooflines. Luckily, since the number of units you will be able to fit is limited by the small size of the room, a custom design often will be reasonably economical, too.
Sophie Baylis added this to Kitchen Ideas: How to Choose the Perfect Backsplash
Porcelain and Ceramic TilesTiled backsplashes are a popular choice, as they offer versatility, practicality and style. Thanks to advances in printing technology, ceramic and porcelain tiles can be produced to resemble natural wood and stone, but with none of the associated performance challenges. The tiles are resistant to scratches, heat and water, and should be reasonably cheap and easy to install. And while they are durable, should a tile become chipped or damaged, you simply need to remove it and lay another. Pros: While tiles are easier to clean than most other materials, and therefore lend themselves perfectly to a backsplash, this is not the only reason they are ideal for the job. “With such a range of shapes, sizes, colors and patterns now available, tiles give you the freedom to put your own creative stamp on your room without compromising on practicality,” says Robin Auld of Topps Tiles. Cons: The sheer volume of styles and finishes can be overwhelming. “Consider exactly how the space will be used to ensure your choice works with your lifestyle,” Auld says. “While pristine white tiles and matching grout may look perfect in a modern, low-use kitchen, they are not the most practical choice for a busy family space.” Darker-colored grouts are definitely worth investigating.
Kate Burt added this to 99 Ingenious Ideas to Steal for Your Small Kitchen
7. Go luxe. A luxury touch will give your small kitchen grandeur beyond its dimensions. And it doesn’t have to cost the world. This marble-looking backsplash is, in fact, porcelain tile. Add an on-trend, burnished brass tap to take the idea further still.
Melissa Cowan added this to How 2 People Can Stay Sane (and in Style) in a Studio Apartment
Set clear expectations. Problems arise when couples have mismatched expectations about what living together is going to look like. Do you leave canisters of tea and coffee out on the countertop or should they be stored away? It’s possible that one of you has much higher standards of neatness or cleanliness than the other. Or maybe you expect a lot more undivided attention than your partner does. Try sitting down together and writing down in one column your nonnegotiables and in another your preferences. It’s important to know what you won’t tolerate and what you just don’t like. Try to compromise on some of your preferences but stand strong on your nonnegotiables.
