A kitchen made with love

This cottage kitchen is simple, elegant and timeless with clean lines and enhanced durability. It is a small north-facing room and so it was essential to maximise on light and create a spacious look. We achieved this by minimising the number of wall cabinets, using a light shade of paint and introducing clever storage solutions to minimise clutter. The eco bin was designed to create neat storage for recycling and provide additional worktop space.

Hand-painted in Wimborne White from Farrow & Ball, it is a freestanding kitchen with kick boards for hygiene purposes, and it features an integrated vegetable rack cupboard, bi-fold pantry doors, a wall-mounted plate rack and a built-in dishwasher.

“Thank you for all your hard work and patience. We now have a kitchen we can be proud of! It is exactly what we wanted and more. Thanks for your guidance in the design process giving us lots of sound storage solution ideas including the eco bin, the integral oak vegetable rack and plate rack. They are all super and help to make our kitchen function efficiently. You have turned what was the worst room in our house into the best room. We have started saving for bedroom fitted furniture, we want our home - Shaker Traditioning!!!”
