Having recently purchased this period property, our clients were keen to retain the character but modernise the space. The brief was to create a kitchen that worked for both family life and entertaining friends.
In response to the brief, we created one open plan space. This accentuated the beautiful bay windows, created a light bright space perfect for everyday family life and entertaining friends.
A classic in-frame shaker kitchen was chosen for this large kitchen and dining area. This creates a fresh and more modern feel, whilst retaining a classic look. The in-frame shaker kitchen style really lends itself to the dimensions and character of this home. The lovely Crofts & Assinder handles are then the perfect finishing touch.
The starting point for the colour scheme was actually the Aga! Our clients already owned and loved their cream Aga so wanted a predominantly neutral colour scheme that would easily incorporate it. To create a feature and provide a contrast, they wanted to introduce a bright blue colour somewhere in the kitchen. We used the large pantry to do this. When you walk into the kitchen the blue pantry is the first thing you see and it looks fabulous in this bold colour. With the rest of the kitchen designed in neutral tones, this colour contrast works so well and makes the pantry a real feature.
The real beauty in this kitchen is the bespoke feature island with integrated curved bench seating. This was carefully designed to; mirror the stunning curved bay windows, accommodate the existing oval dining table and really optimise the space for both a practical kitchen island and dining area.
Mirroring the curve to the bay windows really accentuates the unique shape of the room. It also shows off the views to the outdoors, whether you’re working at the island or sat at the table.
