The brief:

Andy and Alison found us whilst on a boating holiday travelling the local Oxfordshire canals. After stumbling across our showroom they phoned to make an appointment to discuss their kitchen project.

Part of a whole home renovation their new kitchen was to sit as part of an extended space which integrated indoor and outdoor living through full width sliding glass doors. The new layout also gave space for a separate utility which sits behind the kitchen.

Their brief was to create a simple and practical kitchen with space for all of the necessities, they wanted an island with enough room to seat two people and were set on a yellow colour pallet from the beginning.

The Vision

A neat shaker style kitchen with detailing added through the V-grooves in the panelling.

The choice of a yellow colour pallet was a great choice to keep the room feeling light and spacious.

Working with the builders we implemented a clever storage solution by turning the space from the previous chimney breast into a bespoke drinks cabinet.

In order to make the most of all of the available space we also suggested some slim units behind the fridge for extra storage.

Finally we discussed including a bora hob within the island which Andy and Alison we’re happy to include.
