Custom-built MDF cabinetry gives a new lease of life to this historical farmhouse kitchen. It has been spray-painted in a muted grey, which works beautifully with the original brick floor. Solid block oak has been used for the peninsula worktop to accentuate the colour of the beams overhead, while practical Honed Nero Assoluto granite tops the cabinetry around the wet area.
Kitchen design and cabinetry
A ceramic double-bowl sink is the obvious choice for a traditional kitchen. The elegant spout tap in brushed nickel has matching ceramic levers. Drainer grooves within the black granite worktop are a neater solution than a separate drainer. Although wooden worktops are great for country kitchens, stone surfaces are more practical, so consider mixing and matching.
A peninsula separates the kitchen from the dining area. An antique table and chairs takes pride of place and is large enough for family gatherings. Bunting adds a classic country touch that makes the space feel welcoming.
