Chris & Lucy had just finished building their dream house. They where after an open plan design to fill the large room their architects had designed. The large peninsular we designed into this kitchen provided that open plan, sociable feel they where after.
The furniture used in this project is from our fully handmade range. The style is in-frame, this means that instead of the doors sitting on top of the cabinet frame, you have an external outer frame (usually maple or oak in our case) and the doors sit within that, hence the name in frame.
The door style used is a very simple, yet attractive shaker design with a plain inlay with square edge. This makes for a traditional construction but with an overall contemporary look. This traditional construction uses butt style hinges on the doors but with a special magnetic soft close for that contemporary feel. This feel is also repeated on the drawer systems with modern soft close runners. All of the doors and drawer fronts use high quality 30mm maple wood.
As with the outside, the interiors are just as beautifully crafted. We use high grade birch veneered plywood. This provides a much more stable and long lasting construction, yet still looks great. The outside of the kitchen is painted in Farrow & Ball “Juniper Ash” blue.
One of the most striking features of this kitchen is its large peninsular. This is arguably the most used part of the kitchen as it has the most preparation area and is home to the beautiful oak breakfast bar. The breakfast bar also acts as a raised area, which provides an upstand for the main kitchen area that is used to house power outlets.
Another wonderful feature of this room is the large chimney with its weathered beam running across it. It’s quite a nice contrast against the very new and clean surroundings. Within this chimneybreast is the Hollis’s Falcon 1092 Deluxe range cooker in black and chrome; this is flanked by two custom made cupboards that fit perfectly in the space. Above the old beam is some more custom cabinetry in the form of short cupboards. All of which is finished in the same F&B “Juniper Ash” blue. The third and final part of the kitchen is the sink run. This uses the same juniper ash in frame furniture and a very traditional butler style sink on a butler unit. The butler sink sits on a fillet of the same CaesarStone granite.
The worktops in this kitchen are a mix of Oak, on the breakfast bar and around the top of the peninsular and CaesarStone across the rest of the kitchen. The CaesarStone used is there 4141 called “Misty Carrera”. This is finished with pencil round edges.
