Mr & Mrs Parker had lived with their previous, dark oak, kitchen for over 20 years.
The brief was:
– To lighten up the room.
– Leave room for a small table and chairs.
– Integrate all the major appliances.
– Incorporate the utility area within the main kitchen so as to make the compact space feel much bigger.
– Create a traditional looking kitchen that included a Belfast sink, that had the wow factor yet was also functional.
– Removed the dividing wall and doorway between the kitchen and utility room.
– Put a new window in the utility area thus letting more light in.
– Chose the Second Nature Vanbrugh inframe traditional doorstyle as this best reflected the traditional look required yet was budget conscious.
– Used 900mm wall units to take advantage of the high ceilings.
– Supplied Assoluto Nero granite worksurfaces inc upstands and matching splashback for a stunning yet minimalist look.
– Framed the Belfast sink with 150mm pull-outs.
– Integrated the fridge & freezer as part of the low level ‘dresser’ opposite hob.
– Used curved doors on the end units to soften the route through the kitchen.
– Used hideaway hinges to conceal washer & dryer in utility area.
– Appliances supplied included a Neff built under double oven, induction hob, canopy extractor, integrated dishwasher, built under fridge & freezer.
– The Sandown Belfast sink was supplied by Caple and Ludlow taps by Abode.
The kitchen, now complemented with dark oak engineered wood flooring looks stunning and spacious yet incorporates all of the features asked for.
It is light, airy and great to look at yet is functional with everything readily to hand.
It took us a long time to make decisions and Trevor was very patient with us. He listened to us and interpreted what we wanted to achieve and has done an excellent job of creating a kitchen that exactly met with our expectations.
The quality of the fittings is first class and the whole job came in on budget.
We would have no hesitation in recommending RFK to our friends.
