Holiday rush: kitchen project


This stylish and functional kitchen/entertaining area was created in the nick of time


“After the homeowners were suddenly let down by another supplier, it was imperative for us to deliver the very best service in a short space of time. The clients had already gutted their ‘70s kitchen and were mortified they’d have nowhere to cook or entertain for Christmas lunch. Being meticulous in measurement and execution, we managed to create an exceptionally stylish and functional entertaining area, as practical as it is elegant.



This design really is a lesson in selecting the right storage options to fit user needs and available space. A twin-door cabinet was installed to house the most frequently used cooking materials, flanked by sophisticated, stainless-steel-look roller-door cupboards.


Opening up the kitchen to the dining area allowed for a wall of floor-to-ceiling storage to be fitted. The look is modern but inviting, with vivid-white, high-sheen cabinetry and glossy, metallic grey glass splashback, balanced with luscious blue-hued floor tiles and happy yellow wall detailing. Completed two days before Christmas, even Santa would be proud of this job.”
