John designed an ornate canopy to house the extractor with shaker panelling above and two alcoves to place spices and oils. The shaker panels here blend nicely with the shaker wall panels which were created by the Elements workshop team and painted to match the charcoal blue of the island. These wall panels really help to tie the new orangery and existing space together.
For the flooring we used Amtico Spacia and John specified this to be laid in a herringbone pattern with a border around the cabinetry. This is a lovely finishing touch and frames the kitchen beautifully.
The client used their existing American fridge freezer which we surrounded with a pull-out larder for dry food and an oven tower with a single pyrolytic and full-size steam oven. Combined with the combi oven next to the breakfast pantry, this should be plenty of cooking space, even when entertaining for up to 15 guests! Next to this is an open oak framed bookcase. This was specified to be the same finish as the bench seat and internal of the breakfast pantry for a cohesive look.
