We were very proud back in May to have one of our kitchens chosen for the cover of the revamped Essential Kitchens Bathrooms Bedrooms magazine. The kitchen chosen was our Hammersmith Grove design, which features several interesting elements and always catches the imagination of our clients.
The style of the kitchen is based on a simple Shaker design, but it has been altered to include extra interest with the use of handleless features and large banks of glazed units. All of the drawers in the kitchen feature carved scalloped handles, whilst the cabinetry doors are fitted with discrete satin chrome knobs. This gives a hint of the contemporary, but without bringing the style too far away from its traditional roots. The kitchen frames are also augmented with mouldings to add texture to the furniture.
The units that form a frame for the Falcon Deluxe range are particularly striking, with illuminated glazed wall units and dressers on either side of a large chimney with mantle, corbels and Shaker panels. The glass panes feature muntins to break up the light and prevent it from being too glaring.
The kitchen was painted in Farrow & Ball Estate Eggshell ‘Cornforth White’, which is a pleasing, cool colour without the starkness of a plain white. This colour was then warmed up through the use of Jura Grey Limestone worktops on the range run and sink area, and stained oak on the raised seating area. The oak used for the island worktop and integrated trays was chosen particularly to compliment the client’s existing thick oak worktop piece, which was incorporated in to a movable baker’s table. The client chose to finish off the space with subtle green splashbacks, which help to keep the area feeling fresh.
