The setting here was an absolute delight, a landlocked gardener’s cottage with an abundance of beauty all round. This was very inspiring for the layout and design for one of our most favoured kitchens. Already home to several H&P freestanding cabinets, we wanted continuity and harmony within the new kitchen addition. With a love of fabrics and antiques the design remit was to provide a backdrop of simplicity and lightness to allow for the beloved accessories to sit pride of place. The natural choice of style was our Shaker design, with its clean and uncluttered look. Whilst the soft and muted colour palette choice completed a picture of calmness and serenity.
This calm, inviting kitchen space provided us with the perfect opportunity to showcase our Modular Kitchen range. The simple, square wide door pattern aligns with our clients’ choice of a soft, neutral colour scheme creating a light, bright space where the high ceilings, exposed beams and other architectural features of the property are allowed to truly shine. The use of unlipped birch ply for the shelves and cutlery inserts of our Modular range further underlines this celebration of natural features and materials. We believe this design is both beautiful in it’s simplicity and yet clever in it’s functionality. The ceiling extractor has been concealed behind one of the supporting beams, the area by the door has been turned into a boot room and utility, while the alcoves have been repurposed to provide both a walk-in pantry and some wine storage. The Modular Kitchen; quality without compromise.
A country kitchen in rural Pembrokeshire with breathtaking views and plenty of character. Under the striking low beamed ceiling, the Shaker cabinets are designed in an L-shape run with a large central freestanding island. The kitchen revolves around the generously proportioned Ash island acting as a prep table, a place to perch and plenty of storage. In keeping with the farmhouse aesthetic, the walk in pantry houses jams and jars with everything on show. Round the corner lies the utility space with an additional sink and white good appliances with a boot room on entry to the property for muddy wellies and raincoats.
