Style: Second Nature Remo Matt Graphite with Silver Birch Corian
The Brief: The clients wanted to change the dated kitchen to a much more contemporary style of kitchen, using the on trend grey colour palette. They chose a full set of new Siemens appliances including extractor, gas on glass hob, micro combination oven, single oven, and integrated dishwasher. High on their wish list was effective storage to maximise the storage potential in the new kitchen.
Curves were introduced in the scheme to soften the entrance into the kitchen and also the impact of the peninsular into the kitchen. Effective storage was used throughout the kitchen to ensure maximum storage capacity and ease of access. In order to create a sense of consistency in the open plan space the utility room was matched to the kitchen with both the furniture and worktop. The corian worktops gave a seamless finish, with coved upstands, moulded sink and recessed drainer with grooves. The all in one Quooker hot water tap was added for instant boiling water, adding to the wow factor and removing the need for a kettle to be kept on the worktop. Finally a sense of glitz was added to the scheme with a subtle sparkly glass splash-back behind the hob.
We chose Kitchen People after approaching three other kitchen design companies. We were won over by the positive way Kitchen People responded to our requirements and the quality of their design ideas and we could not better their price. The final design was stylish and practical. Kitchen People guided us through the selection of products and appliances. Their approach throughout was highly constructive and we were very satisfied that we got good value for our money. The removal of the old kitchen and the installation of the new one whilst obviously disruptive was carried out efficiently and without inordinate delays between the trades involved. Keith the supervising fitter could not have been better and we were very impressed by his skill and attention to detail. The fit and finish of the completed kitchen is excellent and it has proved to be highly practical and durable. It seemed to us that Kitchen People were interested in what we wanted to achieve right from the outset and they set about making it happen within the budget we set. Paul, Sarah and others in the team were available to us throughout the process and we would not hesitate to recommend them.
