This Lee Kitchen Installation project took place in a 1930’s end of terrace house with a relatively small kitchen space that suffered from old dark kitchen units, worktops, and full wall tiling. Indeed a feature of the past.
Our design brief from the client was to maximize storage space whilst keeping the kitchen light and airy. We got to work removing all the existing wall tiles and subsequent plastering to leave the client with a painted wall finish that could be revamped at any time when needed.
The customer opted for a Crown Imperial Zeluso Cashmere handle-less kitchen on silver carcasses matched with Blum Polar Silver Legrabox drawer boxes for that truly coordinated interior finish.
This was accompanied by worktops from Minerva in a Travertine solid finish acrylic with a bespoke under-mount sink installation. All of which was fabricated and completed on-site by our specialist, Minerva fitter.
Appliances for this kitchen were chosen from the Essentials Premium Plus range. Which included a single pyrolytic multifunction oven and a 4 burner gas on a black glass hob. Refrigeration came in two Hotpoint built under fully integrated appliances: a larder fridge and a 3 drawer freezer.
Additional storage was provided with the installation of a Crown Lifespace 25mm open shelving unit. This provided an ideal space for cookbooks and vases etc. In addition to this, the obligatory blind corner unit was installed with 2 Crown Spaceworks Nuvola pull-out shelves. This made access to the corner unit trouble-free.
Splashback wall tiling was completed using Boydens 300mm x 100mm matte white brick shape tiles. The broken joint pattern was further complimented using Ardex Silver Shimmer grout. Floor tiles once again came from Boydens in the form of New Age Bone 450 x 450 porcelain floor tiles which were once again complimented with Ardex Silver Shimmer grout.
The porcelain tiled floor also benefitted from the additional luxury of a Warm-Up DCM Pro fully integrated underfloor electric heating system complete with a 3ie digital programmer and thermostat for perfect system control. The last signature detail of the above was installing a ceramic skirting tile completed with chrome tile trim finishing detail to the top edge.
Finally, as requested at the start of the project. The walls were decorated with Johnson’s Malted Mint emulsion for a defining splash of colour. Overall we feel the brief was fully matched and provided the client with the bright, airy space they were seeking.
