Sevenoaks, Kent


1930s Detached Family Home

In a Nutshell

The owners of this detached, 1930s property in Sevenoaks were carrying out a complete refurbishment project and wanted a new minimalist kitchen to reflect their interior style.

The Brief

As part of a wider modernisation project, our clients required a sophisticated kitchen where every aspect is informed by the guiding principles of being practical, purposeful and elegant.

A professional couple with an appreciation of art and design, the intention was to give their home a calm, considered feel where everything has been carefully chosen to be either beautiful or useful, or both.

Central to the brief was a modern kitchen design that would have dramatic visual appeal, supported by the very best in quality appliances and effective storage.

This SieMatic by Rencraft design fits the brief perfectly. The rich, dark colour palette brings together charcoal and chocolate tones. Leathered granite worktops, coupled with a Spekva wooden breakfast bar, add texture and interest. This is further enhanced through the use of smoked glass cabinets, a gunmetal sink by The 1810 Company, and high-end appliances including a statement Fisher & Paykel fridge freezer finished in Black Steel.

Handleless, SieMatic S2 cabinets in a combination of Terra Larix and Stone Grey are complemented by the Spekva breakfast bar, leathered granite worktops and splashback. Appliances are by Fisher & Paykel, BORA and Miele, while the tapware is by Quooker.

Rather than focusing on one defining feature, the real beauty of this design is the way all of the different elements work together. From the use of solid and simulated woods, to smoked glass and leathered granite each finish complements the other to create a simply stunning space.
