In Detail

This stunning contemporary kitchen combines a large range of high-end appliances with solid cabinetry and a large pantry cabinet. The feature freestanding kitchen island with sink is the central focus of the room, showing off the beautiful recycled glass countertops.

Knocking through

Our clients had already hired an architect and builders to make significant alterations to their living space. Their plan was to extend their original kitchen by removing an internal wall and turning round a staircase. This would give them the space to create the large open-plan contemporary kitchen they wanted to achieve.

Kitchen design and style

Our clients had a strong sense of the look they wanted to create with their kitchen design. They wanted a clear feeling of classic craftsmanship and well-constructed timber cabinetry. At the same time, they wanted a contemporary and highly functional space. The bespoke pantry cabinet unites these two ideals.

Solid timber cabinetry

The solid ash shaker doors are painted to complement the colour palette of the kitchen.

Our client was very keen to have a large pantry cabinet incorporated into the kitchen design. We created a bespoke larder unit to match the rest of the kitchen. While this provides the perfect space to house dry goods, it also brings a classic and traditional feel to the room. The numerous baskets and wooden drawers inside offer a range of storage possibilities.

In addition, we produced bespoke shelving, a wine rack and built-in cabinets in the living/dining area to match the kitchen. The internal kitchen drawers all boast solid timber cutlery trays, adding warmth and functionality.

Recycled glass countertops

The crowning glory has to be the stunning recycled glass worktops, upstands and splashback in a fabulous bespoke purple and white. To see another kitchen that features recycled glass worktops click here.

Freestanding kitchen island

The freestanding kitchen island is the central feature of the room and holds a fabulous double belfast sink, integrated dishwasher and lots of storage. It also provides a seating area, so is perfect for dining.


The appliances include a fabulous Rangemaster dual fuel range cooker, a Rangemaster American style fridge freezer and Rangemaster Beverage Centre, which allows you to mix wine bottle storage with cans. A Bosch dishwasher and an integrated Neff dishwasher complete the range.

The result

The finished kitchen is a fabulous kitchen dining space with a central freestanding kitchen island with sink. The new kitchen design makes full use of the room and combines a solid bank of classic cabinetry with a contemporary look and feel and well-designed functionality.
