A Sidcup kitchen that combines elegance and practicality

Jerome and Luella came to us as new customers with a bright idea – a new kitchen, which would let light flood into a practical, family space.

The elegant results surpassed all expectations.

An understated, bright and hard-working space

With two young daughters, Jerome and Luella needed their kitchen to work hard.

Plenty of work top area was a must, along with a spacious central island – for cooking, eating, entertaining, relaxing – and of course, homework! Steel grey ‘leather’ granite provides an unobtrusive, yet stylish solution, complete with concealed EVOline Backflip socket in the island, which gives access to two plug sockets and a USB when needed.

Practicality was top of the priority list, and whist Jerome and Luella wanted a nod to traditional styling, they wanted these references to be subtle and understated.

Another vital requirement was light – two small windows were originally either side the back door – these were replaced with large, panelled doors and windows that let the light in and perfectly complement the clean lines of the Shaker cabinetry.

The warm toned Amtico parquet flooring (complete with underfloor heating), fitted by our trusted associate, AJ Rogers, perfectly complements the overall design and delivers on practicality.

Creative cabinetry for the perfect balance

The design of the cabinetry adds interest and creates a calm profile to each side of the kitchen.

On one side, the split-level cabinetry is painted in the rich tone of Little Greene Paint Company’s Juniper Ash at the top, which mirrors the central island.

While the lower bank of cabinets, along with the full height cabinetry opposite, are finished in Farrow and Ball’s Skylight, to bounce light around the room.

The floor to ceiling cabinetry was carefully designed for larder storage and to conceal the fridge freezer, whilst not dominating the room.

The cabinet doors are constructed in ash, with oak carcasses and oak drawers. The in-frame cabinetry with cock-beading is an ideal way to incorporate subtle, traditional styling.

Superb quality cup pulls, knobs and matching towel rail in Natural Bronze from Armac Martin provide the perfect finishing touch.

Technology without compromise

Top of the range technology belies the understated lines and tones of this elegant space.

Jerome and Luella chose the Bora Pure hob that is situated within their central island for sociable, odour-free cooking.

Two Miele single ovens, microwave, steamer and fridge freezer complete the state-of-the-art technology subtly housed within the units.

The classic style of the Kohler undermounted cast iron sink boasts a Quooker, giving instant boiling water, with connection to a CUBE tank.
