Case Study: Handmade Walnut and Painted Kitchen - Litlington, Cambridgeshire

 

Our clients commissioned us to design and make them a contemporary but functional kitchen in their Poton Home, to be installed in their newly refurbished and extended kitchen/utility.


The brief: "handleless and touch open wherever possible".

 

Contemporary Kitchen Litlington

^^ Plain slab doors with a finger recess were used across the whole kitchen.


<< The tall run and wall units in gorgeous walnut veneer with the base units sprayed in Farrow & Ball Clunch to give a contrast.


This gives a sleek look which is both modern in design and also very easy to keep clean.

<< Left: Midway units faced with book matched Horizontal walnut veneer.

 

Base units were fitted around the vertical beam to make it disappear into the kitchen.


>> Right: Filter and boiling taps give this kitchen a modern edge.

To hide away tea making facilities, a toaster & a bread maker, a tambour unit was designed to fit into the corner making the most of this otherwise dead space. A custom made stainless steel tambour door was used to cleverly make things "disappear" leaving the worktops clear but still keeping in with the modern theme of the kitchen.

<< Left: Magic corner units were used in two areas of the kitchen which maximised the use of the corner cupboards.


Easily accessible and a great use of dead space.

>> Right: Pull-out-larders are an easy way to increase the storage of dry goods. They come with linear, mesh or solid bases. These units need handles to open but by choosing extra long stainless steel bar handles it was in keeping with the design of the Neff appliances chosen.


Pan Drawers (below oven) are a must in any kitchen design now whatever the style. The deeper pan drawers were touch open to keep them handleless.
