This bespoke in-frame grey kitchen was for a client in Whetstone, London. The Classic Shaker style is complimented by the in-line plinths and the skirting style plinth on the central island.
Beautiful paneled doors are most striking on the fridge/freezer section which on either side, enclose a pantry cupboard.
The carcasses are built in solid pine finished in a dark varnish, the drawer boxes are solid oak and feature polished chrome cup handles.
The Quartz Worktop is by Urban Quartz and is the Monaco Carrara, a beautiful marble effect stone which works very well in this contemporary take on the traditional shaker style.
A double butler ceramic sink is met with Perrin & Rowe polished chrome taps. The taps include a Parthian mini instant hot water tap, an Ionian deck mounted main tap with crosshead handles. There is also an Insinkerator controlled with the chrome button to the left of the main tap.
When discussing the design with our client initially we discussed the need for a clean and clutter-free layout, this means no appliances on the worktops for example. We incorporated the microwave and coffee machine into its own larder. The toaster is also fully operational inside another larder near the fridge. The only ‘appliance’ visible on the worktop is the Amazon Alexa!
The central island is a statement piece in this kitchen especially with the skirting plinth we mentioned earlier. It incorporates two large doors, a Caple wine cooler and 4 chopping boards. There is an overhang offering seating for 3 people. The overhang features a lovely handcrafted support.
There are a selection of other great features in this kitchen. Including the solid oak drawer boxes with dovetail joints, a bespoke shelf sitting between two glass fronted cabinets, storage in the chimney breast and an integrated ice bucket in the island.
We carried the kitchen design through into the utility where you will see the stunning paneled full height doors as well as excellent worktop space, storage and flexibility. The Perrin & Rowe tap is met with a Caple ceramic sink.
