This lovely couple wanted to upgrade their 20-year-old kitchen at their family home in Radcliffe on Trent, Nottinghamshire. The wanted a traditional style kitchen with a contemporary twist/colour. The old kitchen had a table in the centre so seating for four was a must for the new kitchen, they also felt that their old kitchen wasn’t very well organised so they wanted better storage systems, spaces and solutions.
The customers chose a Fine Finish bespoke raised and fielded unit door called Kingston in oak painted in dove grey. A raised and fielded door/kitchen is a classic door design made popular by the Georgians and Victorians. Once joined together the frame holds the centre panel which slots snugly into the frame.
The worktops and splash backs are Tristone Latona. Tristone is 100% acrylic solid surface it is practical and long lasting.
The new kitchen has an island that seats 4. The units are floor to ceiling to maximise storage and have been fitted with a range of storage solutions including a 150mm pull out unit either side of the hob, le mans pull out corner storage unit and beautiful oak cutlery drawers.
The sink is the modern, Thomas Denby - Jarla, ceramic, white, top mounted sink. The door handles are by Second Nature Kitchens and are a cuff handle.
Key Design Features
The island is a key feature of this kitchen, the couple were used to having kitchen table in the centre of the room and at first were not too sure about having an island. It works brilliantly in the space, provides extra storage, seating for four and a very useable, practical worktop. It is the customers favourite feature.
The under-unit lighting is a lovely feature, it is cool white, recessed strip lighting built into the cabinetry.
The re-designing of a new kitchen can significantly help its usability and practicality as well as it looks. The amount of work surface in this new kitchen is double the amount of the old one.
