This Fully Fitted Kitchen was an irregular shaped room with two windows and two doors, so hardly any usable wall space. Despite this our client wanted a functional kitchen with maximum storage, in which she could house her dresser, but also include a range cooker and seating area. Standard size units just wouldn’t fit. So, we made angled cupboards with full length ‘piano hinge’ doors to allow access right into every corner of the room. We also kept the units full depth where necessary to surround the cooker or house the sink, and then made the other runs of units shallower. This ensured the centre of the kitchen was a useable space.
The peninsular unit directs the flow of traffic straight through the kitchen towards the backdoor without disturbing the main cooking area. The end of the peninsular is curved round to provide a breakfast bar which can sit three adults safely away from both the cooker and the main thoroughfare. Finally, the original dresser which had provided the inspiration for the design of the kitchen was stripped, repaired, re-painted and given a new granite top.
