This brilliant compact green shaker kitchen with oak features fits neatly into a terraced house. It incorporates a wide range of custom features to make the space work efficiently, including a fabulous fold-down table on the wall and a moveable kitchen unit on wheels.
Our clients had a small terraced off-shot kitchen and asked us to create a space that worked more efficiently. They wanted a room that allowed them to eat and entertain in one room.
First, we knocked through from their dining room to the original kitchen and opened it up to create one living space. Then we then took a bespoke approach to the design to incorporate a number of unique features to make the space work more efficiently.
Fold-down table on wall
The central focus of the room is the solid oak breakfast bar. We took a creative approach to this, designing it as a fold-down table mounted on the wall. It seats seven when fully extended and when not in use, the end leaf can be dropped. This fold-down table eases the flow of movement around the room and is hugely functional.
Maximising kitchen storage
Next, to maximise storage space, we designed all the kitchen wall cabinets to run all the way to the ceiling. In addition, the plinths were designed to be extra low and the worktop slightly higher. This meant we increased the internal space of the lower cabinets.

Freestanding moveable kitchen unit
To ease food preparation, we created a moveable kitchen unit on wheels to allow our clients to re-position it alongside the hob. This gave them the flexibility to create a temporarily-increased cooking zone with additional work surface area.
The result is a fantastic cooking and dining space, with a fold-down table on the wall making the footprint more usable. The oak and green colours give this compact kitchen a warm and homely feel. This, combined with the bespoke features, make this kitchen truly unique and the perfect fit for our client.
