The design process took advantage of the natural beauty of this converted cattle shed and listed building. Surrounded by countryside views, the open plan kitchen was created to complement the large, light and airy space which could be seen from all parts of the property. The design was sympathetic to the traditions of the building, incorporating large reclaimed oak beams and a solid oak floor. Careful planning and consideration enabled the room to function as a social area, subtly dividing the cooking area from the dining space. Incorporating stools at the central island enabled diners to enjoy the far-reaching views.
In keeping with the character of the original property, whilst meeting all the modern requirements of a large functional kitchen, the build incorporated discreet sockets and plenty of storage. Once designed, the kitchen and utility room took 2.5 weeks to install.
Imposing oak beams maximise the feeling of height and space plus the granite pearl worktops provide a practical, modern contrast to the wood. Soften worktop corners give a curved element to the design, further enhanced by neutral tones on the walls and cupboard fronts. Modern features include a boiling tap and strategic task lighting. With no gas at the property, an electric range cooker offers a modern-day solution whilst still retaining a traditional country feel.
