This is one kitchen that we are proud to say definitely does have it all! It’s a beautiful, calm, open space, and we were able to provide everything our clients wanted for their dream kitchen. Entertaining and cooking are priorities, so it made sense to create a layout around the concept of two islands. We also suggested dealing with the issue of an awkward corner by positioning the requested wine storage room in that area. A fully glazed door allows the walk-in wine room to be enjoyed from all angles, and the pale oak shelves and fittings within offer a lovely contrast against the darker grey cabinets. We also designed a round pedestal bar table in walnut, bringing an additional element of texture and colour to the room. There’s plenty of storage too, from the capacious base cabinets and drawers within the islands to a full-height double-door larder cupboard and some useful open shelves above the sink area.
