Sustainable Kitchens

In Detail

This bespoke kitchen is bright and themed with subtle minimalism. The focus of this extension is the spectacular garden behind the large bifold windows. Sleek lines and an elegant design give this space a classy ambiance, with the neutral tones allowing the bright colours of the garden to shine through.

The Brief

Our clients were building an extension for their 17th century period home and wanted a high quality and modern kitchen that was built to last. They were keen for this house to be their forever home, so every detail of their renovation was built with this in mind.

The Details

Minimalism and functionality were key features of this design. It was important to the client that the kitchen functioned well, before anything else. The kitchen island has a specific drinks area for entertaining, that includes a wine fridge and a drinks fridge. Additionally, a Quooker boiling water tap in the sink eliminates the need for a kettle, keeping the lines of the kitchen clean.

Similarly, the in-house designed and made-to-order “Runda” doors feature cut out handles, echoing the theme of minimalism throughout the space. We also designed a bespoke bathroom for the clients with the same style handles. Check out the full bathroom profile here.

Larder

The slab doors conceal two integrated larders. One larder has pull out drawers hung with super-strong Blum drawer runners. Each storage drawer can handle a weight of 70kg, perfect for holding all your dry store food and more! The second larder is more traditional in design, with shelving and a bespoke spice rack on the inside door.

Eco-board

All the core kitchen cabinets are ultra-sustainable as they are made from a special eco board. We use a board made from timber that is 100% recycled, so no tree is felled in its production. We then have the board melamine-faced to give it an outer layer which makes it easier to clean and maintain.

The base of cabinets we build our kitchens on are all solid and built to last. They have an 18mm solid back panel and do not come flat packed. They are then glued and doweled and set straight in a press for reinforcement. Super strong, they stay square and are well made to form the basis of the rest of the kitchen built around them.
