After recently buying her first house Kate had a very clear vision of what she wanted for her dream kitchen…..
The existing kitchen was very tired & dark, the ceramic floor was cold and the walls were very uneven. There were water pipes boxed in between the two windows and there was ugly trunking running up the wall above the radiator. There was a harsh fluorescent strip light in the kitchen & an exposed boiler in the utility room.
Kate, from Street in Somerset, wanted to create a spacious kitchen that would be light and uncluttered. She required a seating area for two, a built in Neff oven and gas hob, together with a larder fridge. Although Kate did not want any wall units storage was still important so the corner unit was designed with a Leman corner solution for easy access. The Villeroy & Boch ceramic sink along with the Perrin & Rowe Etruscan tap were very near the top of Kates’ wish list.
The kitchen units, in Hornschurch White had grooved centre panels with stainless steel bar handles. The wood effect work surfaces had the corners angled off above the extra wide panels which give a more solid feel to the ends of the base units.
The old ceiling was removed, the exposed pipes were buried into the walls & re-plastered. LED ceiling lighting was installed and electric points were hidden in the units wherever possible.
The finished kitchen exactly filled the brief …. white brick style tiles finished the splash back areas, the flat screen TV was bracketed to the wall and the utility boiler was hidden within a specially sized wall unit.
The complete job involved a kitchen fitter, electrician, plumber, plasterer, decorator & flooring company together with the kitchen designer who project managed the whole installation.
The finished kitchen & utility room look amazing & John Franklin Kitchens are very pleased to have another very happy customer.
