Urban Myth: From Traditional to Trendy 23
May '18

A recent client got in touch with Urban Myth, thinking that it was finally time to update the kitchen that came with the house she moved into several years ago. Although the kitchen was in perfect condition, and had been happily used by our client during this time, she understandably wanted something more to her taste than the previous owner’s, and more contemporary in style.

After a friend recommended Urban Myth, our client arranged for a home visit from a member of our design team. When our designer arrived, they were amused to note that the kitchen our client had reluctantly decided to change was one from Urban Myth, ordered over 15 years previously!

The kitchen was in a traditional style with cabinet doors in Solid Maple and had really stood the test of time. Even though our client was reluctant to let it go, she was very keen to have one of our modern updated designs. And knowing her existing kitchen had lasted so long, she was now even more confident in the quality of our product.

As well as a design update our client wanted to create entertaining space and light in the new kitchen whilst also being family friendly. With help from our designers and our realistic CAD design visuals she was able to imagine the new kitchen in place and make key decisions on layout and finishes with certainty.

“Smooth process from start to finish.” Mrs R, Hertfordshire.

We are extremely proud of the results of this modern transformation. The new kitchen features our Urban Style handleless tall and wall units in Matt Lava Grey matched with Brilliant White gloss base units from the same range.

The seating area has been integrated into the peninsular kitchen island with a breakfast bar on one side to provide the perfect view of the cooking action. The addition of a down draft extractor provides uninterrupted clean lines to enhance the modern aesthetic and create a fantastic entertaining space.

Another feature included in this kitchen is the tambour/roller shutter unit. This hidden storage solution is perfect to conceal small appliances and maintain the sleek look of the modern kitchen. A socket can be placed inside the unit so that appliances don’t have to be moved far when in use. Available in a variety of materials, this example has been finished with black tinted glass.

At Urban Myth we know that when you’re living in a space it can be difficult to visualise what its potential can be. Our kitchen designers can be invaluable if you want to make changes, providing you with inspiring solutions that improve poor layouts and replace outdated furniture to create the perfect kitchen for you.
