The owners of this kitchen had purchased a brand-new detached luxury house in Ascot, Berkshire which was designed and built by developers, Croft Homes.
Croft Homes introduced the owners to The Myers Touch to design and build a luxury kitchen that would not only be a central feature in their new open plan home but would mirror the premium interior finish and architectural features of the property.
Part of the owner’s brief was to create a wow-factor kitchen that included cabinetry, materials and accessories in dark, moody tones that would match the opulent look of the rest of their home. The owners had a love of cooking and fine wine, so the design also had to allow them to cook, drink wine and enjoy not only together, but also for it allow them to entertain and host several friends and family events.
To answer their brief, The Myers Touch designed an elegant, timeless kitchen by choosing hand-crafted in-frame bespoke cabinetry made from a Tulipwood frame. Featuring elegant bead detailing, the cabinetry was finished in Farrow & Ball’s contemporary ‘Plummet’ grey tone for sophistication and a touch of drama. Blum interior drawers allowed for plenty of storage to ensure that the space remained tidy and uncluttered. Brass hinges and handles complement the cabinetry by adding a modern, contemporary touch to the traditional-style cabinets. The designer included a plinth skirting profile around the cabinetry to add detail and interest which looked timeless matched with the Herringbone flooring.
The bespoke cabinetry was designed around a statement Teca Home wine cabinet with feature integrated lighting that provided the ‘wow-factor’ and opulent style they desired. A Stainless Steel Fisher & Paykel Fridge Freezer was also included on the same cabinet row for ease of use when preparing food in the kitchen.
On the other cabinet wall, Siemens convention and steam-oven appliances frame the cabinetry around a Siemens induction hob that sits in front of a magnificent piece of Silestone Eternal Calacatta Gold acting as a splashback. The same Silestone natural stone worktops were also matched in a sleek, contrasting 20mm width to create a seamless look. Glass cabinetry was chosen above each of the ovens to display the owner’s favourite decorative items and add a touch of interior style.
To contrast with the grey-toned cabinetry, the large, central island unit was hand-painted in a dramatic Farrow & Ball ‘Hague Blue’ tone. An integrated sink with a chic Goldfinish Quooker PRO tap blends with the rest of the interior scheme. ‘Eternal Calacatta Gold’ stone worktops from Silestone match the hob worktop and splashback and were chosen to be a different thickness of 50mm to add grandeur and definition. Elegant brass-accented seating for up to 6 people allows for the owners to sit and prepare food together, socialise or host a meal for friends and family. To finish the scheme, the island is centred by a framed chandelierstyle pendant to create a warm atmosphere and eye-catching interior features.
