Our clients live in a beautiful period property on the edge of North London with two older teenage children. Their home is often the hub for social gatherings and family parties and benefitted from a full width single storey rear extension.

This would incorporate a much-needed larger kitchen and create some ever-popular open plan dining and living space with bi-folding doors onto the patio and garden area.

The previous kitchen was a hi-gloss, slab door style, which the client disliked and was very keen to change.

They wanted a design that would compliment the style of the property, but also to bring it right up to date to include some very modern elements.

It needed to be a classic style but have longevity and not date too quickly. We chose bespoke hand-built in-frame furniture with minimal detailing in striking dark green painted tones using Farrow and Ball’s Breakfast Room and Card Room Green colours.

The hand painted finish would allow them a potential colour change after a few years should the fashionable need arise.

The room featured a tall ceiling, which demanded furniture with proportions to suit, so we planned the extra height wall cabinets incorporating some glazed display sections to add extra ambient lighting in the evening.

The dark furniture is contrasted by stainlesssteel doors on the Siemens refrigeration and wine storage, along with a powerful American style Westin canopy hood to fit over the extra wide flex induction hob.

As the family are keen amateur chefs the two single multifunction side x side ovens cater for all their cooking needs and the stunning Limestone Prima Corian worktops with a matching sink and seamless coved splash-backs help create an ideal working space, perfect for easy clean ups after food preparation and cooking.

The secondary sink on the end of the island with a Quooker boiling tap was included to prepare hot drinks whilst not encroaching into the main busy working space.

A perfect combination of classic styling and a practical working space that the client was delighted with.

Project Cost: £47,150
