Modern Country Living
A shaker style, painted kitchen with large island and extra-tall cupboards, this open plan family space was designed to maximise storage in a new extension to a traditional period property. The brief was ‘clutter-free family living with style’. The kitchen comprised fifteen units, and a two and a half metre long island with seating, perfect for get-togethers with friends, finger-painting with the kids or even for preparing and cooking meals! Painted Farrow and Ball "Yearbridge Green", in timeless tongue and groove style, the island has a character oak top made from just three wide lengths of solid timber. All the beauty of natural wood, it was given a modern twist with black resin infills (bottom right). Approximate price £25,000 (excluding appliances).
Clean & Compact
Not everyone has a supersized space (or budget!) but that doesn’t mean compromising on the dream. Tucked at the back of a seaside Victorian terrace, this compact in-frame kitchen with slab doors has a retro feel, and makes the most of the light in the room, with units painted a delicate Farrow and Ball "Skylight". The composite stone worktops in a pale shade of sand complement the client’s warm cork flooring. The key to designing for small spaces is functionality – using every available space to maximum advantage. Approximate price £15,000 (excluding appliances and worktops).
Undoubtedly the most unusual home we’ve worked on, this coastal concept house is entirely comprised of curved walls and ceilings. In keeping with that aesthetic, this beautiful burr elm kitchen was designed to mirror the expansive sea view it overlooks, through a glass wall. Each unit is individually curved to form a continuous wave that runs around the perimeter of the room. The spacious central island not only incorporates ample seating but also houses a six-zone induction hob, pan drawers, wine cooler and several storage cupboards. The Barocco granite worktops perfectly echo the grain of the wood, a stunning finish to a stunning kitchen. Approximate price £50,000 (excluding appliances and worktops).
Clever, hidden storage
How do you fit modern living into a 17th-century barn without spoiling its character? With fun and ingenuity! This country kitchen is packed full of clever features: pull-out racks are disguised behind false pilasters, a wine cooler tucks away in a crooked corner and there is even a secret cupboard hidden away in, well, a secret location! The mixed material island is the centrepiece of the room, with a dropped ceiling to echo its shape and bring the extractor within reach of the hob. It also includes the largest wooden worktop we’ve ever built. At 2m in diameter, it took two of us to lift it into position! Approximate price £35,000 (excluding appliances and granite worktops).
