Creating a larger kitchen space
This fabulous, large blue kitchen, combines a generous food prep area and a storage and seating area. A fabulous feature solid oak breakfast bar bridges the two zones. The room was previously three much smaller rooms. Our client wanted to knock together to create this light and airy living space.
The kitchen is a beautiful showcase for in-frame kitchen design. “In-frame” is where the kitchen cabinet doors and drawers are sited within a frame constructed on the front of the base cabinet. This style stems from traditional furniture construction, lending an air of craftsmanship. The two tones of blue cabinetry heighten the room and make the kitchen feel larger. This is a clever way of maximising light in a space as well. For more tips on how to make your home feel brighter, view our advice post here.
Highly functional appliances
Whilst the kitchen is traditional in design, it boasts a host of mod cons, making it a super-modern kitchen. As well as a full height fridge-freezer, there is also an under-counter fridge and freezer. The cooking appliances include a bank of wifi enabled single ovens and a warming drawer. A remote control extractor fan with powerful LED lighting completes the cooking area.
The focal point
The solid oak breakfast bar is truly the heart of the kitchen and creates a focal point. We love our clients choice to combine worktop materials in this kitchen, as it adds extra visual detail.

The bespoke breakfast bar also demarcates the space between the food prep area and the living space and TV nook on the other side. Our client loves the way her family naturally gravitates to it, creating the hub of the home.
