Bespoke Kitchen Design Biddenden
Our client from Biddenden came to Jones Britain for their bespoke kitchen design having seen the advertisement of our KBB review awards finalists kitchen with a contemporary banquette seating.
They really liked our kitchen design ideas and wanted to use us for our skills in imaginative design.
spacious with plenty of working surface
The brief was to design a kitchen that was large, spacious with plenty of working surface. The client is a keen cook and wanted two standard ovens as well as a combination microwave oven and a steam oven but didn’t want the bulky look that all these appliances would create if grouped together.
The kitchen design had to be light bright and interesting with a major focal point at some point in the room. Casuals dining for two/three people was required and the client preferred to sit on a chair rather than a stool. A minimal mixture of paint and wood was also requested to break up any starkness. A slightly more traditional feeling was discussed and the buzz words were ‘Elegant’ ‘Stylish’ and ‘Functional’
Other companies had insisted that the sink should be tucked around the corner under the window facing the garage but I felt it would work better facing the more interesting garden and that coffee and refrigeration should occupy that area instead. This left a long run for the hob and ovens giving us plenty of scope for planning the run with interesting features. Rather than a mantle that in most houses stick out Dan actual set this back and between two oven housings but by making the mantle in wood it gave the impression of being dominant. A breakfront for the hob gave extra weight to the run and glass splashback with under lighting a faint modern twist. With the outside walls planned we were left with a tricky kinked ‘L’ shaped space in the middle which made it difficult to produce an island that would both work with the space but also look fantastic. We designed the island space to the maximum and created a boomerang shaped island with two circular points, one for chopping and prep and the other as a table. Whilst designing the island we also had to take into consideration the ceiling and the mass of RSJs which Dan wanted to hide with a bulkhead. The island was mirrored onto the ceiling and extended to give a cloud like shape. This and the island together became the main focal point in the room and a really large working area for the kitchen breaking up the necessity to walk great distances when working.
“We are absolutely delighted with our new kitchen. We occasionally send a photo to friends overseas and, without exception, they all say it is like something out of a glossy magazine.”
