The new kitchen uses the same footprint as the previous one but out clients wanted us to re-think the layout to make it feel lighter, and to be more functional in its set-up.
Practicality was key to this design. The clients wanted this new kitchen to be easy to maintain and have the appliances and storage areas that are used the most to be at waist height. There is lots of built-in storage too, including a large larder which is one of the clients’ favourite areas. This houses a lot of items that could otherwise clutter the space and is also at waist height so everything is easily accessible.
Opting for an elegant in-frame shaker style was the obvious choice. The kitchen is from Mereway’s English Revival range in pale grey and really suits this style of property. Using a pale grey colour scheme ensures the kitchen feels light but is a much softer tone than a pure white.
