This kitchen was to be part of a complete renovation/rebuild of an existing bungalow near Guildford.
The space had to incorporate a family room, dining area, kitchen and a utility room.
The main part of the kitchen was a relatively simple layout: induction hob and prep area framed between the oven housings at either end all running along the back wall. The sink was situated opposite on the island and incorporated a Quooker boiling water tap. The door fronts on these units were finished in Aquamarine Satinised Lacquer with longline brushed stainless steel handles.
The most complicated part of this kitchen in terms of both design and fitting was the fully panelled section which housed the American style fridge freezer and the ‘hidden’ entrance to the utility room.
We created what appears to be a solid block of Silk Grey Oak panelling, all with perfect 4mm gaps to mimic the furniture doors. Within this block, one of the panels was actually a secret door which led through into the utility room. There were no door handles or hinges to be seen from the outside, the door catch was magnetic and opened with a gentle push and closed just as easily.
The subtle colour of the Aquamarine Lacquer alongside the Grey Oak panels really brings this kitchen to life and suits the bright, sunny, modern layout of the rest of the house perfectly.
