Contemporary blue and white kitchen

We were asked to transform the existing ground floor arrangement at this property, of several separate, smaller rooms, into one large open flow kitchen space, incorporating living, dining and kitchen areas. The clients were looking for a classic yet contemporary look, that suited their older, modernised property. They wanted a high-end cooking experience from their kitchen and a layout that worked for hosting family and friends for drinks and dinner, but one that was comfortable and suited to when it was just immediate family at home too.


The kitchen was designed and planned to incorporate a structural pillar, with extensive work carried out by our in-house builder, including the installation of wet underfloor heating. The space was opened up, making the previous separate rooms into one much larger one. The central island, handcrafted around the pillar created a well-proportioned design and an attractive, practical focus for the room. The island is finished in Stiffkey Blue from Farrow & Ball, with an oak breakfast bar, upholstered bar stools and a Silestone worktop. The oak detail continues with oak serving trays and oak cabinet interiors, including the house hideaway cabinet with its feature bi-fold doors for easy access.


We decided on Sub Zero and Wolf appliances for their clean, contemporary look and professional standard. The kitchen includes Sub Zero fridge, freezer and wine store, with partially glass fronted gin bars to either side, for attractive and extensive storage. The ovens, induction cook top, microwave, coffee machine and warming drawers are all Wolf. The kitchen includes a Quooker Flex boiling tap for instant boiling water. The glass splashback behind the sink is painted in the same colour as the island, whilst the wall cabinetry is finished in Farrow & Ball Purbeck Stone, creating a fresh, coordinated look. To optimise the wall space, the
cabinetry was designed to almost touch the ceiling, leaving a small shadow gap to avoid the furniture looking too fitted. Control 4 smart home technology was installed to control all the lighting, security, and audio visuals.
