A Burlanes kitchen perfect for entertaining

May 2017

This stunning family home in the heart of Sevenoaks was in need of an uplift to add character and life to the house, and our client wanted to create an open plan kitchen-diner, for family meal times and entertaining guests.

Bespoke furniture means having the freedom to build a kitchen around the features of a room, rather than juggling everything around to make it fit. It's often the smaller, unassuming things that make the biggest impact; like how much natural light floods into this house, and how many lovely, bright areas there are for the family to sit and chat.

 

In such a bright and airy space, it seemed only natural to keep the colour palette of our Wellsdown kitchen just that. The kitchen cupboards are painted in Myland's 'Greenwich Time' and the island is painted in 'Mid Wedgwood'. Topped with Sensa polished quartz in 'Ice Blue' and finished with 'Antique Silver' hardware, we created a country style kitchen maintaining the integrity of the property, with some elegant modern additions. The island creates such a beautiful centrepiece upon entering the room, and provides extra worktop space for preparing food, and ample storage.



A bespoke made corner cupboard gives lots of concealed storage for this family, and the integrated appliances utilise space well. A large, double sink overlooks the beautiful garden, and the large porcelain floor tiles are so easy to maintain and clean, and reflect light all around the room.

 

The mirrored splashback also reflects the natural light around the room, and adds depth to the narrowest part of the kitchen. Splashbacks are a great way of adding personal touches and character to simplistic, timeless kitchens, and can be easily changed or updated in years to come. 

The flush cooktop gives the worktops such a sleek, seamless finish, and drawer space isn't compromised at all. All of our cupboards and drawers are bespoke, made to your exact specifications, including all internal finishes too.

 

We used the same large porcelain floor tiles throughout this room, creating a natural flow from the kitchen to the dining area, and making the space appear bigger than what it is. Flooring can often be overlooked in room design, but if chosen correctly, can be a very valuable asset to any environment. Our Sevenoaks showroom is an official stockist of Ca'Pietra tiles and flooring, and we have an extensive library of tiles on display.

Our customer's marble dining table is a real centrepiece of the room, and we wanted to ensure our bespoke furniture complemented it well. Mirrors work wonders for narrow rooms, reflecting light and creating depths, making the room feel bigger and more spacious. 

Our Wellsdown mirrored dresser is not only a practical storage solution, it also conceals a television when not in use, streaming the walls by keeping them minimalistic and plain.

We provide a bespoke service from the first meeting to the final handover of a project. By listening to our clients' needs and working with them closely every step of the way; the result is a living space that works for lifestyle and budget.
