Located between large dining and entertainment rooms, the kitchen is often used by professional caterers for functions. Yet with the double fridge-freezer, a two-drawer Fisher & Paykel dishwasher and ample storage all hidden from sight, it retains the warmth of a family kitchen. This is epitomised by the homely looking AGA Total Control, with cutting-edge mobile functionality.
An attractive shelf above the AGA retains the feel of living space and, by avoiding corner to corner wall units, we maximised the sense of open-ness. The central island, with tongue & groove back panel, is positioned so the family can enjoy views of the canal while interacting with the chef. A boiling water tap in the large double sink, and bespoke pan and cutlery draws, all add to the everyday convenience.
Space is further enhanced using a soft Farrow & Ball® Lamp Room Gray on the maple cabinetry. Darker grey walls enable key features to stand out – the picture rails, Riverwhite granite word surfaces and ceramic wood-effect floor tiles. Tactile oval knobs are made from polished nickel, while the pan and cutlery drawers are crafted from dovetailed solid oak.
