St Ives



Our customers had recently moved into their new home. They wanted to create an open plan kitchen diner using the footprint of the existing conservatory and kitchen. We knew that once the dividing wall and new construction was complete the space and light would be fantastic. The scheme, with its light yet earthy paint tones and white quartz worksurfaces, is calm and tranquil. The deep blue of the Aga and the shell mosaic tiles in the recess provide colour and interest giving a nod to the customers’ love of all things Cornish. The natural tones of the mosaic tiles bridge the depth of the Aga with the tones of the furniture beautifully.

We chose John Franklin initially because they were good value for money, had an informative true to life showroom that really helped to visualise things and because Jane, our lovely Kitchen Designer, was so helpful and approachable.

If we were to try and say one thing about John Franklin Kitchens we think it would be that they listen…very carefully.

The little things all add up to us saying a big thank you.


This beautiful hand painted kitchen is our Waverley style inset into a 36mm frame. The exposed ends are v-grooved and beaded and the cast iron handles are by Crofts and Asinder. The American style fridge is surrounded by the oven unit and larder with a top box above.  The island has a combination of base units and deep drawers, a seating area and the undermounted sinks with drainer grooves cut into the quartz. The appliances include oven, microwave, dishwasher, fridge and the wonderful dark blue AGA. The AGA surround has a chunky shelf and is supported by shaped corbels.
