We were very excited to design this kitchen with its brand new Orangery extension. Our clients wanted the kitchen area to flow seamlessly into the sunny Orangery where easy living and entertaining were the order of the day and with a utility area (nicely doubling up as well organised wine store!) out of view but accessible.
This Inframe kitchen and Lay-On utility space are all handmade and hand painted in Farrow & Ball’s Off White which showcases the very best of the Handmade in Hitchin range. Hand crafted furniture is carefully considered both for the traditional setting and the client’s desire to create a space to entertain, cook and relax with family and friends.
Throughout, natural Walnut was chosen to complement the hand painted furniture. The solid Planked Walnut breakfast bar and shelves are beautifully paired with the Colonial Cream granite worktops. The dovetail drawers and thoughtfully designed cutlery and spice trays are again made from solid walnut. It’s these elements, that aren’t always on view that make Planet’s kitchens unique.
There are aspects of this kitchen which is set it apart from the ordinary – the upper level Island area which is perfectly ‘bar height’ for propping against with a glass or two; the tall Pantry Units which handsomely flank Neff ovens and, practically, keep a cook’s arsenal out of view; the Breakfast Cupboard which is accessible and easily hidden – perfect for a large family!
Simple bronze finish handles complete the understated and timeless look of this kitchen.
