A grand design by Smith & Smith Kitchens
Universal Magazines

“It’s the details in this kitchen that intermingle to create a grand design that simply wows. The previous kitchen was a small country-style room with multi-coloured patchwork tiles, giving the kitchen a cottage look. Tired of this, the clients wanted a more grandiose space while maintaining the heritage theme of the home.

The kitchen was designed so the enormous mantle is the feature of the room, with unique and original surroundings. The gothic-styled overhead cabinets, a nod to the doors of the house, connect the spaces. Most of the appliances, bar the beautiful Lacanche stove and butler’s sink, were integrated so overly modern appliances were hidden and more traditional features were highlighted. We incorporated open shelves for plates and crockery, backlit for a lovely display. The gorgeous mirror-backed curved niche open shelf is simply stunning. To avoid impinging on this grand design, the butler’s pantry was designed to further increase storage space and provide access to appliances. The kitchen is a space of grand dimensions, balanced in design and with a restrained elegance.”
Designer: Laly Renehan for Smith & Smith Kitchens
