We have just designed and installed a kitchen for Mr & Mrs Oldham at their home in Godalming, Surrey. The Oldham's decided to knock through the kitchen and utility room, creating one big room to cater for all their ideas. A new utility was created in one half of their double garage This gave them a large open space to fit in their dream traditional style kitchen. After seeing the traditional kitchen furniture displays at our showroom in Bentworth, Hampshire, they had their heart set on a painted shaker style kitchen. After designing and choosing the perfect colours the results are here to see in the images above.
Their kitchen features three main parts in Farrow & Ball colours. The first area is the main kitchen run; this is painted in F&B Blackened with lacquered birch veneer interiors with the doors in a simple shaker style and a curved unit on the end. The second area is the island in F&B Brassica, which is a lovely lilac/lavender colour. The island uses the same shaker style doors with a built-in bin in one unit with deep drawers using solid oak drawer boxes on the other side. Either end is clad in tongue and groove panelling. The third area is the large kitchen dresser unit at the opposite end of the kitchen. This features two tall glass cupboards with inlayed counter top, backed in the same tongue and groove panelling (in Brassica), as well cupboards all the way along underneath. All of which is finished in F&B Pavillion Gray, topped off with a 40mm solid oak worktop.
Mr. & Mrs. Oldham also required a utility room to be fitted out in the same shaker style furniture all finished in the same Blackened colour that is in the kitchen. The Hotpoint appliances are the customers own in the Utility room.
As for the appliances, sink, tap, etc, these where covered by Bosch, Franke and Elica. The sink and tap were the Franke Kubus KBX 12034-34 undermount sink and the Eiger Tap in SilkSteel. The Bosch items where two Bosch Pyrolitic self cleaning ovens (HBG73R550B), a 80cm wide black glass induction hob (PIP875N14E), a fully integrated larder fridge (KIR38A55GB), super quiet (41dB) fully integrated dishwasher (SMV69T20GB) and a free standing freezer in the utility room. The Elica item is the Igloo stainless steel extractor hood with curved glass canopy.
The worktops are all granite in a colour called Ivory Fantasy, they came in a 30mm thickness with pencil round edges, the worktops also have 20x150mm granite upstands in the same granite type. We also organised the flooring for Mr. & Mrs. Oldham, this was from Karndean and their Island Limestone range, the actual colour was Jersey.
"We were very happy with the personal service and attention to detail that Mark gave to our project. He transformed our rough ideas into an amazing result.
"We were impressed with his great attention to detail and practical ideas such as raising the worktops to suit our height and suggesting the curved unit on the end which gives a much more spacious and softer look. He also allowed enough space for us to put a chair there just by the French doors to the garden, which is a lovely place to sit and relax and enjoy the view. Other kitchen companies we looked at presented very standard designs, but Beau-Port created a very individual design for us."
