GUIDE PRICE: Kitchen £27k+
This brick Edwardian house in a leafy suburb of the city already featured a generously sized kitchen but the new owners wanted to modernise the space and open up the existing french doors to see more of the lovely garden outside. Tall, full width bi-fold doors were installed allowing light to flood into the room and making the kitchen feel part of the outside space. The new Shaker kitchen, a classic style, was in keeping with the traditional period features of the house but was given a fresher, more contemporary feel with the addition of a prep island and modern fittings. The beautiful deep Studio Green from Farrow and Ball was used both on the island and hob wall to tie the two areas together whilst the stone coloured F&B Ammonite walls were the perfect foil for the owners vibrantly coloured artwork, chosen to complement the colours of the kitchen cabinetry. Bronze handles, which develop a softer brass patina over time, look as smart on the dark green cabinets as they do on the pale Ammonite cabinets. The walk-in pantry, perfect for the storage of dry goods and less often used kitchen items, was painted in the same deep green to match the kitchen, whilst the original shelving, which the owners were very keen to retain, was painted in the same off white for contrast.
