The designers of this kitchen juxtaposed the sleek cabinetry with a more traditional looking profile to the work surface. Carrara marble as a kitchen surface is very popular, despite being a softer stone. These marbles are more susceptible to scuffs and without care can become stained from some substances being left for long periods of time.
The edge profile is Ogee + bullnose. The splashback on the dresser is cut from the same slab as the work surface so the pattern follows through. This had to be milled down from 30mm to 20mm to achieve this affect.
The sections either side of the range cooker are done in a single piece to wrap around the walls and into the alcove where the cooker is housed. The walls required plaster to be chiselled out to accommodate the upstands, unless the upstands are cut into small lengths it is impossible to wrap them around bumpy and curved walls.
