This classical period kitchen has all the mod cons
The warm, homely feel of a traditional kitchen can greatly enhance the overall atmosphere of a home, but older kitchens can often be impractical for everyday use. While the owners of this home loved the period-style look and obviously wanted their kitchen to fit in with the rest of their Victorian home, they also wanted all the comfort and practicality of a modern kitchen.
Peter Gill, from Kitchens by Peter Gill, was the man tasked with creating a kitchen that offered a seamless blend of old and new. When stepping into the space, the classical design is immediately obvious. From the Victorian doors, with their distinctive handles, to the clever use of traditionally styled tapware, every fit and finish has been chosen to create a period look.
The warming tones of the timber flooring complement the white cabinetry nicely, while the rustic clock above the large cooker is a unique touch. There’s ample room for traffic to flow around the large island, which is finished with a Caesarstone top. The island boasts an extra sink for added practicality and also offers plenty of bench space for food preparation.
There’s an impressive amount of storage space in this kitchen, including the tall wall unit with glass door display cabinets. This is the perfect spot for the owners to showcase their fine glassware and any treasured collectables.
And although this kitchen looks classically stylish, it still has all the conveniences you’d expect in any modern kitchen. With state-of—the-art appliances such as the Miele dishwasher and Ascot cooker, not to mention all the latest internal hardware including soft-close drawers and Blum hinges, this kitchen really is a modern classic.
