In Brief

A fresh, modern kitchen with bags of character in a compact space. Designed to fit an offshot kitchen in a traditional terraced house, this bespoke and custom made kitchen combines bamboo worktops with simple handle-less doors.

In Detail

This fresh, modern handleless kitchen has bags of character and is designed to be super functional in a compact space. They needed a design for a long narrow kitchen to make the most of their space. The wine box shelves and pan rack add visual interest as well as allowing easy access to kitchen items.

The brief

Our clients wanted a kitchen that flowed well from the dining zone it extends from. They wanted a fresh approach to their kitchen to maximise the space they had.

Changing the layout

The property is a traditional Victorian terraced house with an off-shot kitchen. This was totally transformed with just a small amount of building work to open up the kitchen-dining space. The flow of the two zones was improved inside the home, and outside the back door, a sheltered seating area was created. This was important to our client, who felt that by levelling off the back of the house, they would lose this intimate courtyard feel outside. This meant that the long narrow kitchen space needed a thoughtful design to make it work. Functionality was key.

The kitchen design

The new kitchen has bags of character, and incorporates all the key elements to create a hugely functional space. The bamboo worktop is a sustainable choice. Bamboo is a fast growing, self-propagating crop which replenishes itself within three years. It adds warmth to the light and airy space, and the edging detail is a nice feature.

The handleless cabinet doors and drawer fronts keep the design simple in a narrow space and stop out client from snagging themselves on handles!

Pan rack and boxes

Our client also wanted to include some reclaimed wine boxes with sentimental value in the finished design. We hung these on the wall as shelf storage and they bring a casual air of fun to the overall feel.

The pan rack complements the boxes, with it’s open storage functionality.

The result

This kitchen is totally bespoke, modern and thoughtfully designed. Our clients love the space – a long narrow kitchen design that works for them. The feature wine box shelving and pan rack add great visual interest and make the space unique as well as functional. Job done!
