Half pencil & scalloped in charcoal & partridge grey
The BriefAs the client’s previous kitchen was quite small and not in keeping with the tastes, a new, large and airy extension was added to the beautiful period home in St. Albans. This created the spacious, stylish and sociable kitchen to suit their way of living and interior choices. The clients opted for a 1909 Kitchen in half-pencil and scalloped furniture, in a classic mix of partridge and charcoal grey, the cabinetry choices were capped with Carrara marble worktops. Carrara Marble was again uses as a matching splashback. The worktop to the island section was installed in a 50mm option from one piece of marble specifically chosen by the client to show off the unique swathes of colour within it. The combination of the high-vaulted ceiling and bi-fold glazed doors flood the room with light and coupled with the considered choice of colours and materials creates an enviable harmonious scheme. The pendant lighting, situated above the feature island, draw the eye to the statement island. Ensuring the kitchen was kept clutter free was a key priority for the client and this was achieved with clever larder pull-out units housed either side of the fridge freezer, keeping both fresh, frozen and dry foods are all conveniently zoned in one area. It’s a really beautiful project and comes as no surprise that it graced the front cover of EKBB home interest magazine.
Designer Tips1909 Kitchens are such a creative range of kitchens, that so many unique looks can be created. The clients explored the colour palette available when visiting our kitchen showroom in Cheshunt, Hertfordshire. As a main 1909 Kitchens centre, the client gained a clear understanding of how the whole project would come together whilst looking through showroom displays. This is key to a successful project. A show-stopping kitchen design will start with the client’s own ideas and be expanded upon by a good kitchen designer. The best elements in this project, are the island and mantle. However, the entire project blends together with the space and it is the room as a whole that impresses. The fact the kitchen sits so beautifully within the space is testament to the symbiotic relationship between client and kitchen designer.
