Victorian Farmhouse

Home / Case Studies / Victorian Farmhouse
A very large space provides as much challenge as a very small space. Ever with an eye on function as well as beauty it is important to keep the food preparation and cooking areas within practical distance of each other. This was demonstrated when clients were renovating a substantial Victorian farmhouse which involved a major make over, removing walls and working with multiple contractors.They wanted an airy, functional and stunning bespoke solid wood hand painted kitchen with an impressive island. 

A large kitchen and family room were desired and created. Again, an multi level island provided a solution, neatly dividing the areas along a central line with cooking on one side and secondary storage and wine racking on the other. The mix in levels also offered an ideal resting spot for pre-dinner drinks in a casual environment. In addition a new home office designed to meet the clients needs, which looked like a Housekeeper`s cupboard, kept everything on message and balanced this side of the room. Finally, additional window seating around this room and the adjacent dining room links the areas neatly together. All were made from solid wood in the UK, from sustainable sourced materials, and entire kitchen was professionally hand painted on site, giving the whole kitchen a subtle, traditional and characterful look.

The styling was similar throughout ensuring a design flow between the two areas. The end result is a design which reflects the period of the building whilst providing a more contemporary living space. We were able to go back at dates convenient for the client to design and complete other room which added to the design flow of the entire home.

“I was recommended Patrick Porter Kitchens by a friend who had shown me her new kitchen a few years ago. As a result, not only did Patrick and his team design and fit a beautiful new kitchen for me but two years later they then came and fitted a laundry room and we are now currently in the process of designing a boot room, all to my specific requirements. Patrick has been so easy to work with and very receptive to any ideas that I might have come up with myself, keen to allow me to have my own input whilst guiding me in the right direction when things won’t necessarily work the way I want them to! The fitters have also been a pleasure to have around in the house, never in the way and happy to help out in any way they can. I cannot recommend them enough.”
