Our client discovered an issue within their property which forced them to decide if they should stay in their home of 14 years and fix the problem, or move to a new house. They didn’t want to move away from the area they loved and a house that held so many memories, so decided to take this as an opportunity to adapt their home to fit their lifestyle. During the renovation work, they expanded their living space with an extension and the installation of a new kitchen and utility room. The client discovered Grove House through a recommendation from their architect, they visited the showroom and the planning went from there.
The client came with a vision of a shaker style kitchen and wanted a simple colour pallet to complement the style. She had already chosen an Everhot Range cooker and we incorporated the feature when designing the kitchen as well as including a larder.
We worked closely with the client to design her ideal kitchen and an initial design layout. The plan allowed us to consider the finished product when designing and developing individual elements. A trip to our showroom to view the extensive range of work surfaces and fittings helped the client gauge their preferences based on the look and feel of the products. A combination of Bianco Rivers Silestone work surfaces with knobs and hinges in a pewter finish we selected to add to the handcrafted cupboards. We worked through colour pallets and the client opted for Farrow & Ball Cornforth White to compliment the shaker style doors and frames; the kitchen island was hand painted in the shade Mole’s Breath adding a classic and elegant feel.
The finished kitchen has achieved the desired result in terms of style, appearance, purpose and practicality. The layout is engineered to support the uses of the kitchen with units positioned around the cooker.
