The brief:

Whilst undertaking a complete renovation project Claire and John got in touch. Their double garage was commandeered to create their brand-new kitchen space. Plans for a bespoke and entirely unique solution were soon put in motion.

Drawing on Scandinavian influences the brief for this kitchen was clear. Claire and John wanted a very individual kitchen made from a mixture of materials, they needed plenty of storage, as well as seating space but without taking up too much of the kitchen itself.

The dark green colour was a clear choice from the beginning, but it was up to us to provide a few options for the final finish.

The Vision

With a combination of traditional shaker with Scandi influences were required, we opted for v-grooves in the doors, as well as some Birch ply fronted drawers.

Full height pantry cabinets were designed and placed next to the fridge. Whilst a seating solution saw the inclusion of a peninsular with the seating area within the adjoining room.

The skylights in the vaulted ceiling and choice of light stone floor allowed for the hand painted, dark green finish to create a stunning contrast and spectacular final look.

Project overview:

Worktops: 20mm Cimstone Arcadia

Cabinets: Melamine faced MDF with drawers in sustainably sourced plywood. Door and drawer cup pulls in antique brass

Appliances: Neff double oven, Neff American style fridge/freezer, Neff integrated dishwasher, Neff induction hob, Aeg warming drawer

Sink: Franke Largo in silk steel

Tap: Franke Eos in silk steel

Colour: Obsidian Green by Little Greene

Other: Plywood shelves and window sill

Two years on, our gorgeous kitchen is still an absolute joy to use. Luke has a natural design flair and was able to perfectly interpret the vision I had of my ideal kitchen – and utilise the vaulted ceiling to great effect. We are left with a working space that is not only beautifully built and much admired, but is unique to our home. We would heartily recommend Cherrywood and would not hesitate to use Luke and the team again.
