Mark Challen's Bistro Kitchen

A grey and white mosaic marble floor takes on the effect of a rug.

H&H's Mark Challen always dreamed of a kitchen that would look like his favourite bistros and brasseries. Dark-stained cabinets, state-of-the-art appliances and a showstopping marble floor create a high-performance, handsome space with international flair. Details make the difference: the cabinets feature a thin bead profile, the subway tile is bevelled and lighting is layered, with overhead recessed lights, undermounted cabinet lights and range-hood lights (on dimmers — a must!).
