About This Project

Brief

This beautiful rural home is a total refurbishment of a derelict granary and piggery, and following a recommendation from a previous customer of ours, this client came to us to help them create a country kitchen with both traditional and contemporary elements.

They had an existing Liebherr fridge-freezer, which needed to be incorporated into the new kitchen.

Our bespoke kitchen design

To achieve the quality and detail required for this kitchen, we designed a traditional in-frame shaker kitchen and had it handmade here in Sussex. It is entirely handmade in veneered oak with solid oak drawer boxes.

The kitchen is painted in Soft Olive, a timeless green and the perfect colour scheme for a country kitchen. It works beautifully with the oak accents and granite worktops. The design did start out with a two-tone colour scheme, but with so much space and natural light in this room, we advised using the rich green across all the furniture and that the dimensions and style of the room could take the colour without being too dominated by it.

For the worktops and window sills, the client wanted something light but not quartz, so they chose a granite stone in Valley White from Sussex Stone & Ceramic, a beautifully patterned stone that works so well in this scheme.

Aged metals work beautifully in more traditional style kitchens, and the American Copper knurled handles and knobs by Crofts and Assinder are the perfect choices here, especially coupled with the brass hinges on the in-frame doors.

For the appliances, the client did not want a traditional range cooker for this country kitchen and instead chose NEFF ovens and BORA Pure hob, a Quooker tap and a Caple wine cooler.

All in the detail

Our favourite details in this kitchen are the oak butcher’s block on one end of the island and the oak rounded breakfast bar at the other. The client wanted a breakfast bar but didn’t want guests to sit side by side. To utilise the floor space efficiently, we designed this lovely, rounded, sociable high bar in oak. It not only creates a warm contrast to the granite, but it is also a lovely tactile surface to run your hands over.
