Whatever it takes

Normal Oak Kitchen Cabinets and a Skylight Are the Stars of This Kitchen Renovation

The ahead of: With lower ceilings and pale yellow, Shaker-style cabinets, the first kitchen area was not intended for living. The restricted, rectangular space was after a services quarter, so its structure was inefficient for modern day use.

The inspiration: “The shoppers ended up really eager that it be rather timeless, rather nominal, but really traditional, as effectively,” George remembers. “They loved the idea of the normal earthiness of the timber, but they did not want one thing that felt like a trend or kind of funky, so a great deal of the style is quite ageless.”

Square footage: 35 sq. meters (roughly 377 square ft)

Budget: “For a normal extension like this, you would be wanting at approximately £3,000 for every sq. meter excluding taxes,” George estimates. Which is about $359 per sq. foot.

A one, substantial pivot door opens the kitchen area up to the backyard.


Principal ingredients: 

Cupboard Fronts, Wall Cladding, Shelving, and Benches: Customized Normal Oak by joiner Jai Brodie. “We needed to continue to keep the palette actually simple,” says George. “Oak was the principal content employed for the kitchen. The essential issue was we labored with a joiner that we realized, who is a mate of the organization and that we’d labored with prior to. He’s a serious craftsman and professional.”

Flooring: Wooden and Beyond Engineered Pure Oak Boards. “The client was really worried about overusing oak, so that was likely the toughest final decision to make—having the floors and the joinery all the same—but we have been quite convinced it would work,” George remembers.

Desk and Chairs: Client’s Have

Countertops and Backsplash: Silestone.“It’s just received a good, refined texture, but it is not far too loud. It blends into the track record,” George illustrates.

Lights: New Works Content Pendant in Light-weight Gray Concrete, Tom Dixon Increase Wall Gentle in Black, and Astro Lights Eclipse Spherical LED Sconce

Wall paint: Dulux Pure Excellent White

Faucet: Grohe Minta Single-Handle Pull-Down Kitchen Faucet in SuperSteel

Oven: Bosch

“The major purpose for owning the open cabinets arrived from observing what an incredible whiskey selection the shoppers had when we first frequented the house,” George factors.
