The clients, a retired couple, extended their kitchen by knocking through from the dining room and adding an extension to improve the flow of the house and create a more comfortable and relaxing living environment. An informal seating area was key so the couple could spend time together when the lady, a keen cook, was busy in the kitchen. Appliances were chosen carefully including eye-level ovens to their cooking demands, a large American style fridge-freezer and coffee machine.
Milton Painted cabinetry with river gold granite ensures the new kitchen is always light and welcoming. As it’s very much the room the clients entertain having the seating area on an angle allowed the space to be more sociable and also maximises the lovely view out to the garden. The structure of the room included two large steel supports but the designers were able to work around these without compromising the overall look and feel of this timeless design.
