Kitchen style used:


The Brief

The clients’ original kitchen was small, cramped and tired and they wanted to open out the room to add more space and create a much lighter feel. The new layout incorporates an island, breakfast bar, lots of workspace whilst still allowing plenty of room for a more formal dining table and chairs.  The Mornington Shaker range, in a painted-alabaster finish creates a simple yet classic feel in the design. This is enhanced with the considered mix of worktops, Corian on the island and sink run and oak timber, to add warmth, on the breakfast bar and sideboard unit. 

Designer's Tips

Although walls were removed between the existing rooms, the original oak pillars were retained to maintain the character and integrity of the house whilst introducing beautiful feature into the new design.
