Kitchen design brief
To create a modern, ultra functional family kitchen in a new kitchen extension. The brief here was to utilise every inch of space to the maximum, the kitchen needed to house an American fridge/ freezer and it had to have an Island, double oven bank and seating. What’s more it had to work within a space complicated by beams and existing walls, not to mention an adjoining utility and cloak room. The premium, as always, was space and knowing how to use it.
In order to incorporate everything our client wanted we had to utilise the space available in the very best way we could. The creation of an “S” shaped partition wall between the kitchen and the utility room allowed for one side to house the American fridge/freezer and the other side to house the Washing Machine and Tumble Dryer. This opened up the space significantly, allowing for the Island and Midi-Unit Oven housings.
How it worked out
Despite the simple appearance this is a highly complex kitchen. Once the design was finalised the next challenge was to accurately communicate with all the builders, plumbers and electricians involved in building the space. Details like flush fit extractor housings and built in refrigeration require careful planning in order that they come together on site and allow for a smooth, efficient installation. In this example everything worked out very well, quality workmanship by all the preceeding trades, combined with our own expert fitting team meant that 9 days after the fit began the Quartz was being installed and the kitchen was ready for use.
It’s a good feeling when it all comes together. This kitchen works beautifully in terms of functionality whilst subtle design details and high quality finishes create an understated, elegant space.
