Manor House Kitchen
The owners love entertaining and cooking, especially with fresh produce from the garden. In keeping with the home’s delightful interior feel, we created a hard-working kitchen with a simple, traditional and calm ambience. Everything – from the positioning of features, to the clutter-less design – is geared to enhance enjoyment of the garden and company.
There’s a steam oven, main oven, microwave oven, tall fridge-freezer and walk in larder. There are two warming draws, by the cooker and by the dining room. The roller shutter conceals a kitchen aid and Magi Mix plugged in and ready to go. A two drawer dishwasher is supplemented by a main dishwasher for when the owners entertain.
A mix of painted units and American light oak, along with light granite work surfaces, create a bright, open space. The limestone floor with a nice green on the walls imbues a warm feel that really suits the house.
To avoid clutter we placed the hob in the centre with an extractor fan that looks more like a light. The main sink looks out to the gardens. A separate prep sink in the island has boiling water so people can make tea and prepare veg without disturbing the cook. We hand-made a display unit for cups.
