After installing cabinetry in several rooms already over the course of the last 10 years we were asked by our client to design a kitchen that was both functional and aesthetically pleasing.
We were asked to give everything a home to avoid clutter, so we made good use of a bi-fold door larder which, when open was a bright and practical working area, but when closed didn’t intrude too much into space and hid its contents from sight.
Particular attention was paid to the internals of the cabinetry with bespoke contrasting maple and black walnut timbers being used to good effect. Hand-carved recesses kept the kitchen knives neatly stored and a drawer with integrated USB points kept the unsightly phones off the work surfaces.
The work surfaces were honed Calcatta do Brazil quartzite for the cantilevered breakfast bar, with contrasting Cosmic Black granite for the remainder, including inside the larder cabinetry.
We supplied a mixture of Gaggenau and Miele appliances which, along with the kitchen will give many years of outstanding service.
As with many of our kitchens, it was hand-painted by us in Farrow and Ball estate eggshell and we used handmade British brass handles, in this case with an antique silver plate finish.
