It’s always flattering when a customer you have worked with before, comes back to you and having previous experience with them helps you to understand their design needs better. This kitchen was part of a huge raft of renovations on a property, including a large orangery that was to be built off the existing kitchen space. The kitchen was designed as sections, each with it's own function, and to allow a flow from the kitchen into the living space of the orangery. The first area is for cooking, with the oven and hob, whilst behind it is section two, the main island, for preparation and washing etc. The third, comprises a run of tall units for food storage, with pull outs and a pantry as well as the American fridge freezer. Sitting, quite uniquely, off the back of the pantry is the fourth section with 2 glass dressers and drawers. Designed this way to funnel guests into the open space and shield the kitchen. The final area hides an extra fridge and freezer and functions as a separate area to prepare drinks, etc. Rather than a table, a second island was designed to match the kitchen running perpendicular to the rest of the kitchen and acting as bridge between the kitchen and the living space. Despite the size of the kitchen, it needed to be light, so the Bone colour was perfect and lots of glass cupboards and feature lights were incorporated to brighten it up. Oak colour cabinetry was used so that it's charactor would come through in the open shelf units and glass cabinets, as well as to tie in with the natural oak flooring. To maximise usability, the larder units feature pull outs and the bespoke pantry cupboard has internal drawers and spice racks, even the bins were integrated into the design, so that the whole kitchen is practical as well as stunning. This customer has a habit of picking out rare granite surfaces and with this Taj Mahal Quartzite certainly kept to form, pictures don't do justice to the unique quality of this stone. The slabs were hand picked at F Jones Marble & Granite in Middlesbrough and their team did amazing work on this job. The utility room was fitted out to the same standard and a window seat made for the orangery with the same materials. We also carried out work to both downstairs toilets as well as Silestone window cills for the orangery. Almost certainly the most unique project we have ever carried out and a beautiful and timeless classic.
