Mr and Mrs Becker wanted to completely update their kitchen to create a bright modern feel with everything streamlined, and to increase storage and usability but to retain their existing American fridge freezer.
As the kitchen was open plan to their dining area it needed to work with both spaces and sit harmoniously within it.
The clever bit was was to remove as much of the wall between the utility and the kitchen effectively opening up the utility and kitchen space so that it worked more as one.
This enabled us to install the American fridge freezer in the original utility space with a 400 mm pull-out larder to the RH Side zoning all the food storage.
The boiler is hidden in a wall unit in the utility and a washing machine integrated to stream line the utility with the kitchen.
As the previous utility sink was removed we fitted a new hot outside tap along with a cold. As a consequence of situating the American fridge freezer in the previous utility the kitchen space was dramatically opened up enabling the large island with curved ends & space for 2 x stools as a seating area. This neatly linked the kitchen space with the dining area as well as making the kitchen more sociable and user friendly space. Karndean flooring was fitted through out the ground floor again opening up the space. Stella Negro black mirror chip work surfaces from Silestone with matching Silestone sink completed the sleek and modern look.
A stunning bright contemporary kitchen maximising the space with zoned storage through-out, feeling much bigger yet with more storage. Most importantly It really has the wow factor!
We were recommended to Rugby Fitted Kitchens by friends whose new kitchen we absolutely loved.
From our very first contact with Tom the Designer at RFK we received 1st class service. We had a wish list of items we wanted to incorporate into our design & changed our visuals as we went along. Nothing was ever too much trouble.
We were advised our build would take a total of three weeks to complete & the whole process from start to finish was totally seamless & ran like absolute clockwork & totally to plan. The skip arrived in ample time before the fitters started & was taken away just after they had finished.
The kitchen fitters, electricians, plasterers & floor tilers were all extremely friendly, clean & tidy. Rusty & Ray in particular certainly both had a meticulous eye for detail which is just what we wanted. We have had Neff products installed as well which are certainly top of the range in quality & would highly recommend. We have recommended RFK to my parents as they love our kitchen so much & they are now looking to have a kitchen from RFK as well. I would also recommend the Neff evening cooking event.
It only was not only thoroughly enjoyable, it was hugely informative & I learnt so much more about the products we have purchased. Thank you RFK. Rachel & Phill Becker
