The Brief

This Storrington couple were seeking to modernise every aspect of their traditional home. The task for designer Alistair was to create a theme befitting of this period property and a layout to include the plentiful storage and present-day features required.

Originally two rooms, this client sought to open up the space into a single room with the help of our complete installation option. The clients wished to use part of the open-plan room as a super-sociable area with island seating and additional modern comforts.

The new space was also to be enhanced with lighting improvements and new flooring.

Design Elements

From early project conversations a shaker-style kitchen was a clear favourite, and so designer Alistair has utilised a solid painted shaker option from British supplier Trend. A subtle light grey finish has been used for the main kitchen area, while a differing dust grey tone has been used for the island.

The layout is comprised of a U-shape in the main kitchen which incorporates tall units to house appliances, pull-out pantries to achieve storage requirements, and glass fronted cabinetry to showcase decorative items.

The entire kitchen is fitted with quality quartz work surfaces from supplier Silestone. The chosen finish is a white-based finish called Snowy Ibiza, which teams well with subtle grey elements of this project.

Following the construction work and installation of structural steels, a new floor was required as well as new lighting to suit the new space. A medium oak finish named Auckland oak has been used throughout the room which adds a warming element to the room.

The new room has also been illuminated using pendant lighting above the island, downlights throughout, and undercabinet lighting.

Special Inclusions

An important part of the project was the modern-day function of the new kitchen, which designer Alistair has achieved by incorporating an array of high-specification Neff appliances.

The client was keen to incorporate a Slide & Hide Neff oven, wine cabinet, and Quooker boiling water tap which all feature in the project. A sizeable cooking area was required for pots and pans, with designer Alistair recommending a five-ring induction hob from Neff.

A wine cabinet was a must for this project, and a large CDA wine cabinet has been installed within the island seating area.

In addition, a Neff combination oven, Neff refrigerator, Neff freezer, and Neff integrated washing machine have also been installed as part of this project.

A space was also required for this client to tuck away any small appliances, which designer Alistair has catered for within the design.
