Style: Mereway Lastra Integra Sanded Oak and Futura Larch White, Silestone Blanco Norte
The Brief: The kitchen was part of a whole house refurbishment where the clients wanted to modernise the house and make it suit their growing family. The contemporary ‘glass box’ with grey framing was being added to the dining area of the kitchen to bring in more natural light, so it was important that the kitchen complemented this feature. The clients wanted occasional seating in the kitchen too so a peninsular was introduced into the design.
The kitchen had to be child friendly and practical so the integra sanded oak cabinetry suited perfectly; with its clean lines and integrated handle it was ideal. The two tone cabinetry effect was used to introduce different textures and add definition. The white silestone worktop compliments the warm tone of the oak and provides a practical, family friendly worktop. Splashes of colour have been added to the room with bright, bold dining chairs and pendant lights over the peninsular.
The Kitchen People have just completed our new kitchen and we are absolutely thrilled with it. We looked at a lot of kitchen designs and ranges at a number of high street retailers and no one came close to the service, quality and flexibility – and therefore value for money – that the Kitchen People could provide.
Sarah’s eye for design and ideas on functionality really improved our layout, and she put a lot of time in creating and revising 3D graphics of our kitchen, which really helped us visualise the room. Sarah was also very good at pointing out where we could cut costs but still get the look we wanted, so we have managed to keep within our tight budget.
It is also worth noting that The Kitchen People have installed our kitchen to a very high standard, it feels solid and robust, particularly important as we have two small but boisterous boys!
We would definitely use The Kitchen People again and would like to thank Sarah, Paul and Virgil for all their help in creating our lovely kitchen.
