Clean lines and maximising space are two kitchen design requirements that Interior Designer, Annett Todt, from Living Design is often briefed with.
“The owners were asking for style and functionality for the upgrade of the kitchen in their townhouse rental property. The overall approach was for clean lines, functionality and maximising space,” explains Annett.
Annett chose Acrymatte fronts which feature a super smooth surface with advanced scratch resistance for higher durability, combined with the Art Oak veneer to add a sense of refined luxury to the design.
The use of integrated appliances allows for a seamless fit and customised finish and the flush-mounted Flow-In 2-in-1 cooktop with integrated downdraft system enabled her to design without the need for a bulky rangehood and created space for additional storage instead.
“We love working with the Flow-In because it gives us the freedom to design kitchens to the new open plan living requirements of modern homes but also works well for small kitchens. With the advantage of the downdraft, the cooking can easily be done on the island facing the living room, where the family meets, and friends are entertained. This is what makes the kitchen the heart of a home,” Annett says.
The Flow-In solves the challenge of extraction on kitchen islands where it is impossible to use traditional or even built-in rangehoods and works well for kitchenettes and smaller kitchen spaces as the 520mm cooktop is perfectly adaptable to the standard depth of a 600mm countertop. The compact unit provides more space in the cabinet underneath the cooktop to maximise storage.
The hood extractor cover is easy to remove and provides direct access to the stainless-steel filter. It can be cleaned in the dishwasher.
The Flow-In is equipped with an innovative motor base which is energy-efficient as well as having an external motor option to minimise noise.
