About This Project

Brief

This project was a real pleasure for us as we were asked to design and install a new kitchen for a brilliant local builder we know really well and work with often.

The brief was to create an open-plan practical kitchen for a large family in a shaker style featuring a large central island and breakfast bar to seat four people.

Our bespoke kitchen design

When we first visited this site, the conversion of farm buildings was only just underway and the kitchen was just a large concrete slab! This is not unusual, and we’re used to seeing past building sites or imagining where a kitchen will be and realising the potential of a space. If you’re planning a conversion, extension or large renovation, it’s a wise idea to bring your kitchen designer in as soon as possible before the building work commences. In this way, plumbing and electricity can all be planned out taking your kitchen design into account, rather than you compromising on the design or having to make costly changes to the space later down the line.

Our client had a clear idea of the style of kitchen and colour scheme they wanted for their new kitchen. Following their lead, we designed an in-frame shaker kitchen in Caithness Slate with a smooth rather than woodgrain finish. This colour is one of our bestsellers and it is a lovely bluey-grey that works so well in contemporary and classic kitchen designs.

The matte black bar handles give this country kitchen a contemporary edge and work beautifully with the graphite trim on the NEFF ovens, BORA Pure hob, and black Quooker tap.

Set up for busy family life, this kitchen features two single ovens, a combi oven, a steam oven and a warming drawer.

The quartz worktops and ceramic sink were sourced directly by the client.

All in the detail

We added LED lighting to the glass units and LED lighting underneath the wall units for soft ambient lighting options. The lights underneath the wall units are fitted into panels, creating a smooth underside to the units.

To accommodate the structural stone pillar, we designed a bespoke peninsula to surround it with additional storage and a built-under fridge.
