The considered use of many different materials are what make this bespoke kitchen really stand out. Traditional shaker cabinetry is given a contemporary makeover in the form of slim shaker style doors painted in a deep blue hue, juxtaposed with warm rustic oak base units. Working alongside our joiner, Pfeiffer Design brought this incredible kitchen to life, specifying paint colours and finishes, tiling, decorative lighting, switch plates and sockets and appliances to ensure that this family kitchen worked hard and looked the part.
The traditional walk-in larder was given a contemporary touch by the use of decorative tiling throughout, and the timber island/breakfast bar features a bespoke banquette seating area, to allow all the family to casually enjoy mealtimes together. Made by hand, this kitchen is truly bespoke to the space, and heavy on detail. The wall-hung cabinets are situated in front of the herringbone tiled splash back, creating a statement backdrop to the clients’ collection of crockery and glassware.
Our clients already had an impressive collection of artwork and accessories, all of which was considered throughout the design process and integrated into the overall design ethos for the house. The walk-through oak bookcase ‘tunnel’ was designed with storage of decorative books and accessories in mind and handmade by our joiner – creating a real sense of arrival and anticipation as one travels through towards the extension at the back of this Victorian house.
Practicality and storage solutions were at the forefront of our design for this kitchen, the full-height double larder cupboard, walk-in larder for storage of dried goods and banquette seating, featuring additional storage capacity, were all designed with busy family life in mind.
