Victorian Town House - Nether Edge, Sheffield
The kitchen is a mix of painted solid ash in lovely light, but warm white cotton, with some features in solid oak. It is a thoughtfully updated Victorian kitchen to maximise storage and make the existing space work harder.

Lovely Belfast sink and taps complement the traditional feel of the kitchen. A boiling water tap provides instant cups of tea and coffee and is really handy when cooking, saving time and energy.
Coloured glass splashbacks brighten up the space, reflecting the light back into the room.
A plate rack was a key item for our client.
We suggested some drawers to go with it to house their herbs and spices. The combination gives a feature cabinet with a touch of class and plenty of practicality.
In keeping with the age of the property we suggested taking the wall cabinets up to the high ceiling to maximise storage and aesthetics.
Under cabinet lighting is another modern touch that adds practicality without detracting from the styling of the kitchen.
The worktops are fantastic recycled glass in graphite shard, giving classic complement to the other colours of the room - a wonderful blend of contemporary recycled materials used in a classic setting.
We ran worktops full depth into the original feature window space and added a small upstand to protect the paintwork.
Our client was keen to have a pullout kitchen table that would not dominate the room when not in use like their old one did.
We came up with a neat solution for them, a pull-out table which slotted away between cabinets, still maximising storage and looking fantastic.
The mechanism for the table is smooth and sleek, push the handle and extend the table out and it locks in position, push the handle again and the table slides neatly away between the drawers.
The table provided us with a few engineering and layout challenges, but we love a challenge, they make the end product that bit more satisfying. We made the table in solid oak, including the locking mechanism,The doorway into the room had been a problem area previously, wherever the door was hinged, it got in the way. We turned it into a sliding door, neatly disappearing down the side of the integrated fridge freezer.
We found a lovely pewter recessed handle to fit in with the beautiful cast iron handles and knobs on the rest of the kitchen.
We found another matching handle for the back door to ensure everything tied together.
Finishing touches: the lovely cast iron handles and knobs. Plenty of brilliant drawers and pull outs, and pull out bins to make the traditional looking kitchen function like the kitchen of the future.
