Solid oak furniture has been spray-painted in a classic sage colour. The island extractor has a custom-made housing to fit neatly into this traditional scheme. The wooden table, chairs and cream-painted dresser complete the look.

Two ovens and a warming drawer are built in to a single stack, making economical use of the space. A step away, an induction hob has touch-sensitive controls and pan-size recognition. The hob, oven and sink are together and the crockery drawers are beside the dishwasher, so it's very functional and you don't have to move around too much.

The owners opted for the clean, white look of undermounted ceramic sinks. The swan-neck tap dispenses filtered water when the central lever is turned. Complementary Chrome Silestone composite worksurfaces top the cabinetry.

The owners were happy to keep the existing pale ceramic flooring as it was neutral and in good condition. The bespoke blinds add to the bright, fresh feel of the kitchen.
