Small But Perfectly Formed Kitchen

We have another recently completed Herringbone Kitchen to show. This one really highlights how much of a difference you can make in a small space with clever design.

The owners felt that although the kitchen was small, the previous layout was not utilising the space to its full potential. They wanted the kitchen to maximise storage and worktop space and hide a floor standing boiler. The other challenge was a slope ceiling, meaning the kitchen wouldn't be high enough on one side for many standard wall units.  

In terms of design, she knew she wanted a terracotta floor and a framed kitchen. She had always wanted a terracotta floor and this was her first chance to have one. We agree that this floor looks great in this kitchen!

To create this kitchen, we first put in reclaimed terracotta floor from Ca' Pietra. Next we made the cabinets to accommodate the sloped ceiling as well as the boiler. The clients decided to use the colour French Grey, it is a nice subtle colour that makes the smaller space feel more open. We used a Perin and Rowe specially finished tap, in English Bronze to match the bronze handles and Silestone worktops in Amazon Grey. All appliances were integrated to create a clean finished look, less busy on the eye.

We are especially proud of this kitchen and know the owners will  enjoy it for years to come.
