This project was an extension to form a much larger kitchen and separate utility room. The clients were looking for a sociable layout where they could spend time together. Their previous kitchen was much smaller and not practical for a young family. The brief was for a timeless look with discreet modern features and they chose the Langham Shaker design, in a calming blend of alabaster and suede. As well as wanting an island, they opted for a separate peninsular area to accommodate seating for informal dining. Solid oak worktops add to the classic look and give a feeling of warmth to the interior whilst the Strata flint grey acrylic worktop on the island creates a subtle modern contrast.
A support pillar for the ceiling beam was a challenge in the scheme however the designer was able to partially hide this behind a wall unit so as not to disrupt the flow of the design. The kitchen is packed with smart storage, including pullout larders either side of the fridge/freezer as well as a clever Le Mans corner unit. There's also decorative storage to inject a sense of openness, including a wine rack and tall glazed cabinets.
