With the beautiful weather we're having at the moment we thought we would share with you one of our kitchens which was designed with outdoor entertaining in mind. The Client and their young family wanted a warm and inviting space where the main aim was to cater for large family gatherings. The previous kitchen area was completely remodelled and a large set of folding sliding doors were installed to help blur the boundaries between inside and out.
The kitchen is based around a large central 'L' shaped island with working area on one side and seating and storage on the other. The kitchen is lay-on in style and is finished in a mixture of handpainted Farrow & Ball London Stone and walnut veneer teamed with staved walnut worktop and ivory brown granite which gives the large space a warm feel.

This photo shows the beautiful grain in the ivory brown granite and the raised walnut area of the island is perfect place for a coffee whilst enjoying the views to the garden. The Franke Swiss Pro tap also makes a real statement along with the Franke sink. We also fitted the bench seat which can be seen under the window.
The Siemens single oven and steam oven fit neatly into the walnut perimeter furniture along with the stunning full height wine cooler unit.
The staved walnut chopping block was integrated into the island and mirrors the shape of the units underneath.
