Mr and Mrs R, Nottinghamshire NG13

The Brief

Mr and Mrs R wanted to redesign their kitchen but this had to be in keeping with the period of the house. They love the Victorian style appliances and wanted a solid surface worktop.

The creation of a  utility room was needed and to make better use of the space with in the kitchen and utility area’s.

The Project


We started with the removal of existing kitchen and utility cabinets, view wall and floor tiles and carpet. The sub-floor was prepared for new tiles. The electricians installed necessary power points.

Let the Kitchen installation commence!

Mr and Mrs R opted for handmade, solid cabinets in Lancaster Oak with Broadoak Stone painted doors. Behind the doors, pull out tea-towel rail and a base unit with integral large bin. The kitchen design included feature curved wall  and base units to create the end of the breakfast bar.  Under cabinet lighting and new ceiling lights were fitted along with a new hydronic plinth heater.

The worktop was made of Brown Silk granite, with matching upstand, cooker splash back and window sills.

We installed an under mounted sink and Atlas Acquifier tap with swan neck and lever controls in brushed nickel and the granite was fabricated with 5 drainer grooves.

At the far end of the kitchen, standing pride of place is the Smeg Victorian range cooker and extractor hood.

The kitchen lead into the sitting area, in here we created a corner storage area for the TV to sit on. Made from low cabinets, oak timber worktop and doors matching those in the kitchen.

A new radiator was positioned in what is now the utility area along with a dehumidifying extractor fan built into the laundry cabinet. All the cabinets were finished in the same style as the kitchen including the fridge freezer housing and adjustable pull out vegetable shelves.

The floor tiling throughout kitchen, utility and dining area were finished in Cavalio vinyl tiles in Dark concrete.

I’m sure you’d agree, the overall look of the kitchen and sitting area gives off that ‘homely’ feel.
