The Narrow House, South London

This chic and contemporary kitchen by first time property investor and renovator Maria Shod shows how clever design can make the most of a compact space.

‘The Narrow House’ in South London is a conversion of a three-bedroom house, which narrows significantly at the rear, into two flats. With space at a premium, the pared-back kitchen features a palette of simple matt white handleless cabinetry paired with luxe gold accents and marble laminate worktops. The stained wood shelving displaying homely artefacts adds warmth and character.

The sink and tap choices not only complement the modern scheme they are a highly practical addition in the compact space. The striking Minerva Mondial instant boiling water tap in on-trend Industrial Black creates a stylish focal point, while freeing up space on the worktop that would usually be taken up by a kettle. The Maris stainless steel sink has a modern, linear design and features a slim-top which sits virtually flush with the laminate worksurface for a streamlined finish.

The Franke Maris MRX 210 70 single bowl matt finish stainless steel sink is ideal for pairing with laminate worksurfaces, achieving streamlined, on-trend style in an affordable way. It is available with a range of accessories including the versatile Rollamat which is good for standing hot pots and pans on the worktop as well as for draining them over the sink. The Franke Minerva Mondial 4-in-1 Electronic instant boiling water tap with its trendy L-Spout design assures easy ergonomics.
