Broadoak Painted Kitchen
& European Oak Worktops
On this project in Headington, Oxford, we were tasked with designing, building and fitting a kitchen within the existing structure of this old house in Oxford. Keeping the seating area in the brightest part of the kitchen was a priority.
In order to design a more useable room with good workflow, we recommended moving the sink from one wall to the other. We dug up the floor to resite the drainage, and were able to then deal with some leaks in the existing drainage system too.
Our client opted for the Broadoak Painted Kitchen with it’s simple Shaker style doors. The atmosphere of the kitchen is dramatically brightened by having the lower doors painted in cornflower and the upper doors in partridge grey.
The European Oak worktops and the clean lines of the white tiling are a lovely contrast to the colourful units.
The Neff Slide & Hide Oven is housed in a tower unit comprising only partridge grey doors, and a Neff 5-burner gas hob and extractor are situated opposite the sink and dishwasher area.
As with most older properties, we needed to house modern features in tricky spaces.
You will see a cornflower unit built to stand alone next to our client’s freestanding refrigerator. We also designed and fitted beautiful oak shelving and adapted the client’s butcher’s block to fit the available space.
