Burnham kitchen

THE XXX FAMILY – XXX, LONDON

Creating a kitchen with a classic quality, in keeping with the style of the property, whilst maintaining symmetry and balance.

This kitchen was voted Second Nature’s Real Kitchen of the Month

The Brief

For my clients, a recently married couple planning a family, a functional yet welcoming kitchen for both cooking and socialising was a necessity. The existing kitchen was very dated, so it needed updating not only to modernise the kitchen visually but to make it more practical for a family.

The Solution

The first step was to remove a load bearing wall that divided the dining room and kitchen. This was subcontracted out, however my clients got in touch with me early on, so they could collaborate with me and their builders to explore every option and create the best space for their requirements.

Where other designers were adamant that an ‘L-Shape kitchen with a breakfast bar’ was the best layout for the space and that an island was impossible, I proposed a kitchen with a ‘peninsular’, as this would offer all the same benefits of an island – extra workspace, smart storage solutions and a place to socialise. Unlike an island, which would need to be of a certain size to be worthwhile, peninsulas can be short or long, and so fit into smaller spaces. Another benefit to this layout meant that we were able to avoid corner units, providing the back part of the kitchen with some much-needed tall wall space for the fridge freezer and dry food storage. It also provided additional worktop space for their much loved coffee machine!

The End Result

From the colour scheme to the beautiful lighting, everything about this kitchen design delighted my clients, exceeding their expectations in every regard.
