Spring Hares

kitchens

About

Our customer had a very clear vision of how her new kitchen would look – green, with a feature panel of handmade tiles, and incorporating a dresser and an existing door made from old stripped pine to conceal the central heating boiler. She needed a  company who could fully project manage all the work – plumbing, electrics, plastering and installation as well as the bespoke kitchen units together with the decorating and flooring.

We’re so pleased – it looks lovely! I’m really enjoying spending time in it as I love cooking and it’s even more pleasure now! Special thanks to Belinda, our lovely designer, who helped so much to ensure I was happy with everything. Everyone who came was friendly and considerate as well as professional and hardworking. A very good team!

 

Detail

Pan Drawers were chosen to maximize storage, and a Neff Slide and Hide Oven means it is very easy and safe to take hot food from the oven.  A Neff Gas Hob and an integrated Neff Low Frost Fridge were also chosen. After some initial ideas at a leaf green, the final paint colour decision was a pale green that echoed the colours in the hand painted tile panel featuring hares from Marlborough Tiles. The dresser was also painted in the same green, with pale cream for the exposed T&G features. This was made shorter than the kitchen units to create the effect of a welsh dresser.

By re-directing some pipework we were able to fit the existing washing machine under the boiler, and we created a new side for the boiler and re-used the existing pine boiler door.

To tie the whole look together, wood effect laminate worktops and wooden cupboard knobs were chosen. The finished kitchen is exactly what our customers wanted – a country kitchen reflecting the green surroundings of Somerset, that lifts their spirits and makes them think of Spring at any time of the year.
