Not all kitchens are a nice standard shape, which was the case for Andrew and Angela. When we met at Grand Designs, they were looking for advice for their unusual shaped kitchen. With angled walls and a vaulted ceiling they couldn’t see how to create the light airy and clutter free kitchen they wanted.
They loved our ideas so much that they placed the order with us, despite being located over 50 miles away.
Our solution included placing the island on an angle, to mirror the walls and peripheral views of both the cosy lounge, dining table and stunning garden. The island incorporates a sleek induction hob with vented extractor, as it would have been difficult to incorporate this above the hob because of the vaulted ceiling. A low level breakfast table is integrated into the island, making it a beautiful but functional feature of the room.
We incorporated lots of clever storage, with a tall pantry, and pull-outs or drawers where possible, to keep the number of units to a minimum to make the most of the small room. The double pantry is bespoke, with ample shelving, and utilises what would have been dead space between two pillars.
Open shelving keeps the room light and airy, as does the light grey colour of the units, matched with indigo blue for contrast and a burst of colour.
Andrew and Angela are delighted with the new kitchen, which has become a much used space and a seamless extension onto an already existing dining room.
