A fabulous breakfast bar kitchen for a growing family, maximising the new light and airy space.
Our brief was to design a new kitchen diner to maximise the light and airy living space created by a new extension across the rear of the house.
The Kitchen Design
The kitchen is designed in a u-shape to make movement flow around the space. The ivory-coloured solid surface main worktop is a highly durable choice, particularly around the sink area. Our clients were keen to have a material that would be easy to maintain. The pale colour combines well with the feature beech breakfast bar as well as with the veneered oak slab cabinet doors, which have been painted a soft grey. The range cooker, full height fridge freezer and integrated dishwasher all add to the kitchen’s functionality.
The timber open shelving creates visual interest too and allow easy access to much-used items.
The bespoke breakfast bar is the focal feature of the room, providing the perfect place to perch for eating, working or doing homework. Topped with solid beech, the breakfast bar brings warmth to the light and airy space. We designed integrated book shelves at the far side for our client to make full use of all available storage space.
The result is a highly functional fantastic breakfast bar kitchen which makes full use of the new extended living space.

“Absolutely delighted with the service and the product from Sheffield Sustainable Kitchens.
The design phase did take a couple of weeks but it was 100% worth the wait. “A kitchen should last 20 years and is the most expensive room in your house, so why the rush?” This was sage advice from Sheffield Sustainable Kitchens. Just what we needed as an antidote to the pressure to ‘act now’ and ‘buy cheap’ that we got everywhere else we went to.
Indeed their personalised guidance and expertise on materials, colours and layout were very welcome. The company patiently took time to understand our desire for something ‘on-trend’ that nevertheless had enduring appeal and made use of natural and eco-friendly materials. Also unlike most, our requests for bespoke bits of design such as curves and custom shelving did not phase them. However, the superb quality of their designs really shone through when the detailed full-colour renders came through of how the finished kitchen would look, came through.
Their vision was absolutely spot on. From that moment on, there was no going back. In fact, it was plain sailing. The pricing was clear and all phases from ordering to delivery were well managed and executed on time. The kitchen is a delight to use and guests are constantly being wowed by the look of it. We are so glad we chose the right provider and would encourage others looking for something a bit special, a bit different, or just for a more ethical and personable approach, to give them a try.”
