Contemporary British Kitchen in Ovingdean, East Sussex

A contemporary coastal theme is used for this project, in addition to fantastic pantry and drinks storage.


The Brief

The first time we visited this Ovingdean property was around 15 years ago, when we installed a traditional style kitchen for these clients. The brief for their second kitchen installation with us, was completely different, swapping a traditional style for a clean and modern aesthetic.

The requirement for this project sought a clever design incorporating social seating options,  as well as including organised storage and a space designated to a fantastic drinks collection.

Design Elements

The layout of this kitchen makes the most of the space, with a large island the focal point of the main kitchen area. To include the designated storage for food and drinks, designer Aron has placed fitted pantries either side of a chimney breast, each with built-in storage for organisation.

The theme is a nod to the coastal location of this property, with a popular azure blue finish combined with gloss white cabinetry used for wall units and the island.

The furniture used in this kitchen is from British supplier Trend, with the flat-slab profile door deployed across all cabinetry. To soften edges around the island space curved units have been utilised alongside blanco maple quartz work surfaces from supplier Silestone.

Special Inclusions

High-specification cooking appliances have been included in this project, with a custom combination of Neff products incorporated to suit the needs of this client.

A Neff slide & hide oven, combination oven and warming drawer are grouped within furniture, with full-height Neff fridge and freezer located either side of the appliances. On the opposing side of the kitchen area, a Neff flexInduction hob has been incorporated with an in-built extractor integrated above.

Where possible appliances have been integrated behind furniture to not interrupt the theme of this space, with an integrated washing machine and dishwasher located within base units.

Whilst undertaking the renovation, this client made the most of our full installation option, with a full Karndean flooring upgrade, lighting improvements to suit and designer radiators included in the dining area.

Project Highlight

The designated storage in the dining area is an enviable highlight of this space.

One is allocated to ambient foods, with the other used to house in impressive drinks collection, which teams perfectly with a built-in 60cm wine cabinet in the kitchen area. Both boast premium oak internals to help with organisation.

The End Result

The result of this project is a kitchen that utilises a lovely coastal theme, delivering on the modern brief required. The use of pantry storage for food and drink also leaves a wonderfully organised lasting impression.
