The Brief

Our family from Rochdale wanted a beautiful, distinct kitchen that would be a great space for day-to-day meals along with entertaining. They also wanted the design to make the best of daylight and to complement some existing wooden features in their lounge. 

The family have a fairly busy home. In addition to day-to-day family meals and activities they enjoy entertaining at home. So, the new kitchen had to be practical for everyday family activities while also making a design statement with a little bit of a ‘wow’ factor.

The family wanted key features to include a large, central island serving as the main work station, with a hob and sink.  They also wanted tall larder storage units fitted along one wall to provide the extra storage space they needed.

The main island has a NEFF hob, Blanco sink and Quooker boiling water tap, doing away with the need for a kettle, and a pop-up power socket including a USB socket.

Other appliances and accessories include a NEFF oven, NEFF microwave, Kessebohmer pull-out larders and an American-style fridge-freezer.

A wall unit near the French door looking out to the garden was designed at an angle to allow maximum light into the kitchen and soften some of the edges. There is also a table for ornaments, adding another living room element into the kitchen space.

Designer's Tips

When complete, our customers were delighted with the finished kitchen.

With its glossy surfaces, light really bounces around the kitchen. It is brighter, stylish and much more efficient now with storage, workspaces and appliance configuration.

It really enhances the property, the family’s daily life and their entertaining at home.
