Dual surfaces create visual contrast in kitchen by My Fathers Heart.

Designed for multifunctional living, this kitchen from My Fathers Heart features Dekton by Cosentino worksurfaces on both the central island and the surrounding cabinetry.

Created by Sheffield-based kitchen designers My Fathers Heart, the room combines SieMatic S2 handleless cabinets in the Umbra velvet-matt finish with Dekton in Kira, an earthy toned ultra-compact surface that has the look and feel of natural brownstones.

Highly resistant to UV rays, scratches, stains and thermal shock, Dekton is a durable, hardwearing worksurface solution that can also be used for flooring and wall cladding both indoors and out. Carbon neutrality has been achieved for the entire life cycle of Dekton, so specifiers can rest assured that their surface of choice is sustainable and helps build a better future.

Within the central island, Dekton blends seamlessly with rich walnut, which creates visual contrast and provides a warm tone for the breakfast bar area with its high stools for snacks and coffee. The BORA Professional extractor hob in an all-black steel finish sits neatly within the surface while antique brass pendant lights from Italy drop stylishly from above. The slim profile of the worksurface beautifully enhances the elegance of the appliances and kitchen furniture, while the colour palette is warm and inviting, creating a relaxed, contemporary look.

Chrissi Batey, Senior Kitchen Designer for My Fathers Heart, explains the process behind the design, “We spent a long time with the customer and their interior designer choosing a door finish from the SieMatic palette that would perfectly balance the wider scheme of the room and settled on Umbra. Dekton was the natural choice for worktops due its superior hardwearing qualities and Kira, with its warm earthy tones and elegant fine veining, was chosen to seamlessly complement the doors whilst adding subtle drama to this impressive open plan space.”

Added features such as the black Quooker tap, which provides boiling, sparkling and chilled water on demand, an antique mirrored splashback and bespoke metal framed shelving provide the perfect balance between practicality and beautiful aesthetic.
