Family Kitchen Extension Tunbridge Wells

PROJECT DETAILS

This bespoke kitchen blends subtle elements alongside statement design.

While the irregular ceiling heights and central pillar could have posed a problem, the clever colour scheme serves to draw your eye away from these areas and focuses instead on the dramatic charcoal grey cabinetry with its bevelled door detail and knurled, polished brass handles.

A bespoke bar area with built-in Miele wine cooler has been hand-painted in a rich, luxurious shade of purple. While the use of an antique mirror splashback further enhances the luxurious feel of the design.

Reeded glass has been used in the display cabinets, both within the bar and also either side of the sink, which has been strategically positioned by the window to allow lovely views over the garden.

The whole kitchen has been finished with Corian worktops, beautifully moulded to provide a seamless wet area along with an unobtrusive splashback and extractor hood above the Miele Induction hob. Other appliances include a Miele oven stack with warming drawer, a Quooker and an American style fridge freezer.

Full height cabinetry has been positioned along one wall with a double door larder cupboard, open shelving and a secret door leading to the bespoke utility.

In the centre of the room the large, square shaped island has ample space for storage and seating. Here, a softer shade of blush pink has been chosen to delicately contrast with the deeper tones throughout the rest of the room.

Brief

  • Our clients were extending their family home just outside Tunbridge Wells and wanted a large, multi-functional space that would work both on a day-to-day basis as a family with young children, as well as on special occasions when the couple like to entertain. Storage and space were both key considerations, along with an added touch of glamour and sophistication.

Finish

  • There is so much to love about this design. From the Corian worktops, to the glass display cabinets, the antique mirror, the polished brass handles and the decadent colour scheme.
  • Everything has been carefully considered and absolutely nothing has been left to chance. We believe that this mix of finishes and materials provides a fantastic example of the unlimited potential of a bespoke kitchen design. The end result is a truly personal space which will serve our clients well for decades to come.

Best Feature

  • This design is a mixture of statement and subtlety. The secret door to the utility is just one example of a room that chooses to cleverly disguise certain elements while simultaneously celebrating others such as the bold, rich colour scheme and the stunning polished brass handles.
