Our clients, Rachel and Ed, came back to us to reconfigure their kitchen we built for them 7 years ago, as they had gained more space with a kitchen and boot room extension.
The remit was to create a light modern kitchen with some colour, in a relatively dark space. Keen to keep to a classic style given the age of the cottage and being tucked away in the countryside, Shaker cabinets were the choice of style but with a contemporary twist with the colours and handles.
Starting with a red Everhot, we worked with them to choose which cabinets would bring the punch of colour. The Petrol/Teal coloured larder cabinets, with the light work surface and the Red from the Everhot provide that, whilst the alpine Weiss and modern brushed aluminium recessed handles give it a modern clean feel.
Due to Ed being 6ft 10 and him being a keen chef it was necessary to make the worktop higher which we did by increasing the height of the base cabinets as opposed to increasing just the plinth height.
Rachel and Ed reused some of the old cabinets, doors and work surface in their new boot room/entrance to the house. Getting the old grey doors resprayed in Little Green’s Indian Yellow (no 335), matched with the Ottoline Rainbow Chevron wallpaper, provides visitors a bold welcome to the house!
