This was our opportunity to work with customer who lived in a modern, low level Florida style bungalow on a South London private gated estate. The existing kitchen led on from a large open plan living area with bi-fold doors which seamlessly connected the living space to the outside garden.
The customer’s brief was for a clean, crisp, modern handle less kitchen that had to have a wow factor.
A key factor in the design was the seamless integration of appliances and effortless pull-out storage facilities. This was achieved by specifying Crown Imperial Furore Icy White handle less units coupled with Samsung Radianz Makalu Silver composite quartz worktops. The composite quartz worktops were finished off with Franke under-mount stainless steel sink complimented with a Grohe Zedra pull-out spray tap in a silk steel finish.
Luxury additions included a full range of Neff integrated appliances, ovens and hob, Miele free standing washing machine and tumble dryer. A Crown Space Tower unit was installed complete with pull-out internal drawers and various pan drawer units with concealed internal utensil/cutlery drawers for effortless access and use.
The whole kitchen was carefully designed and installed to accommodate an existing solid oak floating floor which was protected during the installation works.
To accommodate the customer’s wish for a modern free flowing design various services had to be relocated including re-positioning of the electric company fuse box and consumer unit to a lower level. New 2 inch waste pipes were run to a new outside gully to ensure trouble free operations of washing machine and dishwasher for years to come. The existing radiators which were installed under the window in the previous kitchen design were removed and number 2 Myson Hydronic kick space heaters cleverly hidden in the kitchen plinths. These heaters were connected to a programmable room stat in order for the customer to have full control over her heating requirements.
The requested wow factor for the kitchen was achieved by supplying and installing Opticolour Regency Blue with Rainbow Sparkle toughened glass splash backs to the whole kitchen. These glass splash back panels when matched with Sensio Fino surface mounted LED under cabinet lighting created a stunning effect.
