As part of a remodelling of a Cotswold stone cottage, and former stable along an old Roman road, we were asked to create a solid wood, bespoke family kitchen for a high tech chef, amateur barista and stickler for detail. Our client had lots of ideas and was keen to be involved in the whole process. This team work, along with experienced fitters, stone supplied by Bath Granite and Marble and a superbly crafted product made their dreams a reality.

The bifold doors open up into a warm and welcoming kitchen. The coloured lights can be changed to suit any mood-or party! The Hague blue island stores spices and inspiration, a wine cooler, microwave, discreet plug sockets and a prep sink which doubles as a drinks cooler. The tap is by Perrin and Rowe- they are the only makers of a one hand tap for hot and cold water. The top was cut out and shaped so that it could be used to infill the sink for large buffet parties. 

The marble work surfaces and large island are  Arabesque by Silestone. This has dark grey vein, and even from a distance, has an delicate intensity and doesn’t look repetitive. The colours are further complimented using Cornforth White by Farrow and Ball on the other two runs of units.

For our keen chef, he chose an Ilve  1200 range cooker which has multi-function digital thermostat oven. This is similar to a  Wolf, but three times less expensive at the time. A Britta water filter supplies multiple appliances which means only one filter change a year. The filtered water supplies coffee machine, icemaker, drinking tap and fridge chilled drink dispenser.

All the best parties happen in the kitchen-especially with a range of led lights, which include a party mode. The under-unit lights by Philip Hues, can be controlled by Siri, or Alexa or Google home. They were easy to install as cables can be popped under any shelf or cupboard.  Make sure you consider your data cables for the lighting as it uses low voltage lighting.

The choice of Fisher and Pakel dish-draw meant that they can both be run together, or each one independently. The extractor by Westin cooker hood specialists is remote controlled and powerful. The floor style chosen was Hamlet limestone tumbled by Ca’ Pietra. The use of thick slabs, which retain heat, in conjunction with the underfloor heating, despite having to be careful of vinegar and acid spillages, provides constant temperature, day or night. 

We are pleased to have worked so closely with our client on this local project as both the chef, family and dog approve!
