This vibrant and striking kitchen design has more than its fair share of wow-factor, not least because of the two large islands which form the centre piece to the design. Each island has been topped with 60mm thick quartz worktops, complete with waterfall edges. As well as looking simply amazing, the double islands also serve to define the two separate zones of this otherwise open-plan living space. One island has been given over to food preparation, with the sink positioned in close proximity to the range cooker, the bespoke larder cupboard and the integrated Miele appliances which include two dishwashers, a fridge and a freezer. This carefully considered layout helps to create an efficient work area when cooking. On the other side of the room the second island serves more as a space for dining, relaxing or perhaps even entertaining with the slightly raised breakfast bar area, the integrated Miele wine cooler and room for four bar stools. The clients own ‘Let’s Stay Home’ light installation tells us all we need to know. When you have a kitchen as stunning as this, there really is nowhere else you need to go.

This contemporary, super-smart kitchen in Old Welwyn is part of a new extension that was designed with the open space of the garden in mind. The understated, bespoke kitchen design (from our Handmade in Hitchin range) means the focus is on the outdoors when the sliding doors are open or through the expanse of glass in the colder months. Keeping it contemporary, the handleless cabinets have been hand painted in F&B’s All White and Little Greene’s Dock Blue. Providing a warm, tactile contrast is the Wide Planked Oak 60mm Breakfast Bar which extends from the kitchen island, down to the floor and provides seating on both sides. Deep drawers and large cabinets provide ample storage and easy accessibility whilst the floating, oak shelves are perfect for displaying cookery books and artefacts. Integrated Miele appliances ensure the sleek, uncluttered finish is maintained with the induction hob & downdraft extractor inset unobtrusively on the Silestone Eternal Calacatta Gold Quartz worktop. And, in turn, this popular durable worktop perfectly partners the (wow factor) splashback in Hand Silvered Antiqued Mirror. A real feature of this family kitchen is the bespoke extra-large pantry which was commissioned as a drinks cabinet with integrated wine cooler. Serving both functional and visual purposes it’s designed using the same flat slab doors as the kitchen cabinets but with bi-fold opening and flush handles. However, it’s the inside where the magic lies - integrated lighting, the same Silestone Eternal Calacatta Gold Quartz worktop, solid oak wine glass holders and antiqued mirror glass - It’s these details that make it a thing of beauty!

Features white painted and black stained oak. Designed with practicality at the forefront of our clients agenda, we created a larder cabinet with a practical pocket draw system . The cabinet is built with space for food and kitchen appliances to be stored away in a neat and accessible manner. The kitchen has an efficient ventilation system due to the instalment of a Bora hob containing a downdraft extractor.
