The owners knocked down the original bungalow and built a new two-bedroom house, complete with a bespoke hand-painted kitchen.
The base units are arranged along the rear wall, with a bank of floor-to-ceiling cabinets housing the appliances, and a central island unit.
The cabinets are painted in grey Farrow & Ball paints, with maple worktops and limestone flooring creating a relaxed, modern-country scheme.
Open shelving frames the elegant French farmhouse sink and allows the owner to display favourite crockery and glassware. All the kitchen accessories, from the kettle to the tea towel, have been carefully chosen to blend in with the traditional-meets-contemporary scheme.
Bespoke floor-to-ceiling cabinets house the ovens and fridge-freezer to give a sleek, clutter-free look. The integrated wine rack is used to display trinkets as well as storing favourite tipples. A mini berry wreath hanging from one of the cupboard doors helps to break up the otherwise all-neutral scheme.
Oven and combination microwave/oven
A traditional farmhouse sink and swan-neck taps work perfectly with painted, country-style units. A cute printed tea towel adds a spash of red to prevent the look from becoming too clinical, while the natural wood tones of the work surfaces soften the greys.
Sink and tap
Skylights and bi-fold doors ensure the kitchen is flooded with natural light, while a tailor-made barn door with a heart-shaped window adds a cosy touch. The wall-mounted TV is tucked away in the corner so it doesn’t interfere with the rest of the scheme.
In contrast to the old kitchen, which was dark and dated, the new space is flooded with natural light. Gadgets like the oven, fridge and microwave have been tucked away behind bespoke fitted cupboards and the pale grey colour scheme creates a soothing, united feel.
