Our clients wanted something light and timeless for their kitchen, they also had quite a large space. This feel was achieved by using a mixture of classic oak doors in a shaker style on the base units and light painted wall cabinets. This, combined with a beautiful light worktop, made this kitchen feel so light and welcoming.
The doors are a Shaker style door in a combination of Character Oak and Ash painted in Farrow & Ball’s French Grey, this combination perfectly achieves the clients’ specification of light and spacious. We think this mixture of natural wood and French Grey looks stunning in this space. A peninsula provides the perfect place for guests to sit whilst entertaining.
The worktop is a stunning leathered Thai granite which has been extended to upstands, windowsill and a large splashback behind the hob that continues up to the top of the extractor. This not only makes a lovely feature of the hob area, but also provides protection against splashes whilst cooking. The peninsula features an alternative worksurface which is a solid European Oak. This accentuates the seating area and provides a “table” for guests to sit at.
Our clients went with a mixture of Bosch and Caple appliances, including a single oven, microwave, induction hob from Bosch. As well as an unobtrusive glass extractor hood from Caple and integrated wine cooler (also from Caple) built into the side of the peninsula for easy access.
The bowl and a half sink from 1810 is placed conveniently in front of the window, allowing our clients to enjoy the stunning view whilst washing up – making washing the dishes that bit more enjoyable. A curved swan neck tap from Abode adds a perfect elegant finishing touch to the room.
An in-built larder pull-out provides much needed organised storage space. An unusual feature is made of the chrome upright radiator on one wall, and our clients also went with a classic Quickstep floor.
