A recently completed kitchen extension with a large kitchen island in a classic shaker style in porcelain and graphite.

We designed this shaker-style kitchen for our customers who needed the room to be a lot more functional. They had inherited a kitchen with a layout that really didn’t work for their busy family life. It was too small for them to be able to cook together side by side. And to access the fridge, they had to walk all the way across the house to the utility room.

Our brief was to relocate the kitchen into what was previously the dining room. However, to increase the room size the downstairs shower room was removed. Further space was created by extending into the old garage space.

Our team worked with a building contractor to reconfigure the downstairs layout of the property and prepare the new rooms. Certain elements of the design had to be kept flexible as the building work progressed. This was because we needed to make sure new kitchen would work with the building and the available space.

Ergonomic Layout

We really wanted to design the most ergonomic layout that the family would enjoy using for many years to come. And to further enhance the use of the space, we designed a U-shaped seating area in what used to be the old kitchen.

Having considered various options, we decided to introduce an island to provide a home for a Bosch induction venting hob. The new kitchen island is perfect as it enables flexible access all the way around.  And therefore, creates enough space for more people to work in the kitchen at the same time.  The extra tall fridge freezer and the tall oven housing were strategically placed in the darkest corner of the room. This would prevent them from blocking any natural light from coming into the room.

This classic kitchen style makes the most of simple symmetry. The sink area creates a focal point by shaping the wall cabinets above and around it in an eye-pleasing way. Food is stored in a tall pantry cabinet with internal oak spice racks attached to the backs of the doors.

Brilliant service from start to finish… The standard of work has been of the highest quality.

Our customers chose the beautiful, timeless, combination of porcelain and graphite colours for their new kitchen. The handles and doorknobs selected for the cabinets brilliantly complement the overall classic look.

Part of the project was re-designing the existing the utility room. This room would become a home to the family’s washing machine, tumble dryer, second sink and additional storage.
