The bespoke worktop made from recycled glass and handmade kitchen cabinet doors in locally-sourced oak make this fabulous country kitchen unique.
Our clients asked us to create a kitchen to fit their period house with original features that have bags of character. We designed this kitchen to fit this brief, which is highly functional as well as unique and beautiful. The handmade kitchen doors nod to the traditional. In contrast, the ultra-modern glass worktop and high end appliances bring the space up-to-date.
Handmade kitchen doors
Firstly, it was important to our clients to use local timber to create their kitchen. We sourced this fabulous pippy oak, which has an incredible wood grain, as you can see from the images. We handmade kitchen cabinet doors and drawer fronts from this to go with the pale green painted wall cabinets. The combination works really well and the unique timber looks stunning. We also crafted the handmade kitchen cutlery drawer which is beautiful as well as functional.
Pull out storage
Behind the handmade kitchen cabinet doors and drawer fronts are a host of pullouts to create a functional space. Firstly, we installed a handy corner pull-out in the kitchen corner cabinet to maximise the storage space within. You can now easily access a host of cooking and baking equipment. Secondly, we fitted a slim pull-out next to the range cooker to locate cooking oils etc.
In a stunning colour-matched green, the ultra-modern bespoke worktop is made of recycled glass and is a durable and sustainable choice of worktop. The recycled glass worktops we fit in our kitchens are made from 85% recycled glass, sourced in the UK. They come with solid eco-credentials. Read more on the sustainable material here.
The high-end appliances in the kitchen design create a super-functional space. The design features include a large induction range cooker, numerous cabinet pull-outs, a Perrin and Rowe boiling water tap, a dishwasher and a full-height integrated fridge freezer.
The piece de resistance has to be the large freestanding larder unit. This full-height storage cabinet gives you an instant overview of all your dried goods. Super-handy! We mounted oak spice racks on the inside to match the handmade kitchen doors and drawers fronts on the opposite side of the room. Larder cupboards are hugely popular as a source of kitchen storage. See our blog post here to read more about why we are designing more and more larder cupboards in our kitchen designs.
The finished kitchen is a stunning, unique and characterful living space. The low lighting alongside the warm jewel colours makes the space cosy. The bespoke worktop and handmade kitchen doors and drawer fronts make the design totally unique.
