The Brief

This client sought to move their kitchen to an open-plan area at the rear of the property, whilst transforming their previous kitchen into a home office. As part of the project, they required all new electrical, water and gas connections into the new room in addition to the kitchen.

From early project conversations a traditional theme was favoured to better suit this property in the rural surroundings of Henfield. As keen cooks, the clients wished to improve their cooking space with an array of new appliances.

Design Elements

Designer Alistair has created a layout and theme to achieve all the elements of the project brief.

The layout utilises an L-shaped run with plenty of tall units to encompass this client’s storage and appliance desirables, in addition to a sizeable island which was a key requirement. The island area adds plenty of worktop space for food preparation and cooking, as well as providing seating for two and a space to perch whilst cooking.

A traditional theme has been achieved by utilising handcrafted in-frame furniture from one of our British suppliers. The colour combination of taupe grey for the main kitchen area, and light grey for the island is a subtle choice that suits the space perfectly.

A Dekton work surface was opted for throughout the kitchen space, this has been chosen in the finish Salina, which teams well with grey accents in this design.

To store dry foods an all-in-one storage option was required to keep things neat and tidy. Designer Alistair recommended a full-height pantry, which is equipped with shelving, drawer storage and door-mounted spice racks.

The array of appliances were also to be located in one area of the kitchen, and so the space in between has been designed with wall units to differ from a run of full-height units. Here a undermounted sink has been installed, in addition to a dishwasher, integrated bin-store, and corner storage. This area has also been enhanced with a glass splashback, useful wall unit mounted plug sockets, and undercabinet lighting.

Special Inclusions

As keen cooks an array of appliances to help with kitchen functionality and enjoyment was key.

A selection of premium Neff appliances have been utilised for this project, including two Slide & Hide single ovens, a combination microwave, built-in coffee centre, full-height refrigerator and full-height freezer.

Placed upon the island is a sizeable five-burner Neff gas hob which is where most of the cooking in this household will take place. The hob has been placed on the island so the clients can indulge in their cooking and watch rugby on TV at the same time. Above this area a ceiling mounted extractor has been built to remove any cooking odours.
