Kitchen/Diner Ideas and Designs
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!

Granit Architects + Interiors
We are delighted to have completed the radical transformation of a tired detached property in South Croydon. When they appointed Granit, our clients were living in the property which had previously been divided into a number of flats. The historic sub-division had resulted in an extremely poor use of space with redundant staircases, kitchens and bathrooms throughout. Our clients sought to reconfigure the property back into a single dwelling for his growing family. Our client had an eye for design and was keen to balance contemporary design whilst maintaining as much of the character of the original house. Maximising natural light, space and establishing a visual and physical connection were also key drivers for the design. Owing to the size of the property, it became apparent that reconfiguration rather than extension provided the solution to meet the brief. A metal clad ‘intervention’ was introduced to the rear facade. This created a strong horizontal element creating a visual balance with the vertical nature of the three storey gable. The metal cladding specified echoed the colour of the red brick string courses tying old with new. Slender frame sliding doors provide access and views of the large garden. The central circulation space was transformed by the introduction of a double height glazed slot wrapping up the rear facade and onto the roof. This allows daylight to permeate into the heart of the otherwise dark deep floor plan. The staircase was reconfigured into a series of landings looking down over the main void space below and out towards the tree canopies at the rear of the garden. The introduction of double pocket doors throughout the ground floor creates a series of interconnected spaces and the whitewashed Larch flooring flows seamlessly from room to room. A bold palette of colours and materials lends character and texture throughout the property. The end result is a spacious yet cosy environment for the family to inhabit for years to come.

The new contemporary extension is set juxtaposition to the traditional features of the existing house. A feature wall of concrete plaster reflects the concrete effect large format tiles on the floor. The kitchen units are bespoke spray lacquered with an exposed ply edge.

This project is a combination of ex display units from our Hove showroom with the addition of an island & tall oven housing. The contemporary LEICHT kitchen is designed with a Steel Corten doors & complimented with IOS Artic white glass doors to give contrast & design flair. The seamless style is enhanced with the use of a BORA downdraft hob, Silestone Calcutta Gold worktops & SIEMENS appliances. Our client tells us: When we came to choose a kitchen company for our project I initially thought the kitchens may be out of our budget. But we still went along to the Brighton showroom to have a look for inspiration. Sharon Hartley and the team were amazing from the outset and were able to help create our dream kitchen with a mix of ex display units and new units. We would particularly like to thank Sharon who dealt with our constant questions and design changes along the way. She was very patient and always so quick to solve any queries we had. Mike Rogers the MD, was also very helpful and regularly popped in to see the progress of the kitchen project. His knowledge on products was fantastic, particularly the Hob we chose which required a specific route for the extractor. The whole team were wonderful from start to finish and we would recommend them to anyone undertaking a kitchen project. Fantastic advice, service and support.
