Kitchen Design

The original plans delivered by the architect placed the family room in this vast space and left the existing cramped kitchen in situ at the other end of the property. Our clients thought the plans "made basic sense" but they couldn't really imagine living in the space. We considered all the options and designed the kitchen into the planned extension with a play-room and separate utility room hidden behind two stylish sliding glass doors.

This kitchen design forms part of a large open plan space with the dining room. We created a cosy family space off the dining area and transformed the original kitchen into an adult lounge, a haven from the children. The kitchen units are all bespoke, made to our exact specifications (note the clever boot-tidy by the door to the garden).
We supplied and fitted everything, including the integrated kitchen appliances, large glass splash-back and granite work surfaces.

The breakfast bar is made from Pyrolave, a material produced in France from molten lava! The shape was designed and specified especially for this project. 

The picture below shows the clever storage design incorporating slide-out cupboards to maximise usable space. Behind these is the glass sliding door that leads to the utility room. This maintains the clean lines of the room and hides the clutter that normally accumulates in a busy family kitchen.

An architect must always be employed when major building work is contemplated. However the architect is not necessarily the best option when it comes to planning the details of the interior. Specialist kitchen and bathroom companies do offer design services. But these companies have been known to use such services as a sales tool to lever as much product into your room as possible.

Our clients value our independent design thinking and the flexibility of our approach to space planning and kitchen design. The result is a space that fits into, and serves to improve, the quality of their lives.
