The existing kitchen was a trapezium-shape, making cooking and entertaining a challenge. Our design solution was to alter the layout and flow of the room. We closed off a small door to allow for a continuous running countertop.
We also suggested reducing the large entrance door and replacing it with a pocket slide door. This allowed us to construct a made to measure double pantry unit along a large previously unused wall, maximising the space.
The pantry was specifically crafted to house the client’s pre-owned Le Creuset dishes in a set of deep custom drawers. A pull out shelf, mounted on the worktop surface, allows coffee machines and kettles to be used while avoiding steam damage to the oak interior. To finish, all the doors were hand-painted in Little Greene ‘Lead’.
A Successful Project
Despite the unique design challenges of this kitchen, we were able to complete the project in five weeks following the client sign off. The total cost of this project, including design, build, installation and finishing details came to £62,000.
