Our kitchen design process:

Bamako is a smart and modern kitchen with black cabinets and textured oak fronts.

The modern black kitchen design is softened by the use of honey-toned reclaimed oak throughout. As always, this kitchen was about balancing the aesthetics with lifestyle and practical details. We added a tiered island unit, open shelving and twisted drawer pulls as well as LED lighting underneath the upper cabinets.

A testimonial from our happy client:

“My new kitchen is so beautiful! Francois has designed a kitchen far beyond my expectations, adding ideas and coming up with lots of imaginative and beautiful solutions to problems. His skill, care, attention to detail and style is exceptional. When it came to fitting, Francois and his team were so professional. On more than one occasion he went the extra mile in his commitment to the project and making my ideas and vision into a reality. Everyone who sees my new kitchen is blown away by both the quality and how unique it is. It fits me and the house perfectly. I can’t recommend Wood Works Brighton highly enough. I got everything I hoped for and so much more. Thank you Francois!”


  • Raw oak
    The pale rustic oak contrasts with the smooth modern black kitchen design.
  • Open shelving
    We love the way our client has utilised their open shelving – it is both practical and decorative.
  • Sculptural island
    The tiered island unit in this black and oak kitchen design is unconventional but has become a focal point of the room as well as offering storage and workspace.
