My client is an avid cook and loves entertaining family & friends with his culinary delights and was becoming frustrated with the lack of space in his kitchen to do that. He had already decided a small extension to the existing kitchen was needed but the question was how to best use the space and give it a modern and functional feel whilst still being an amazing space to entertain.
We added a small extension in terms of depth to run the full width of the back of the house across the existing kitchen/ dining area & took out the exiting wall to give us one big, airy space which was created by roof lights in the new roof area and large picture windows & doors opening to the garden. The units, to include 2 x ovens were placed along 1 & half walls allowing space for a large island to home the hob but also allowing enough space for food preparation. 2 sides of the island has bar stools to accommodate guests who can enjoy a drink & chat with the host whilst he’s preparing food. A bar cupboard was built in the style of the kitchen units in the dining area which when open is lit with downlights and has space underneath for the family dogs, not to be forgotten. A large dining table to seat 10 people with comfortable chairs, important for long lavish evenings.
Interior Squirrel managed the planning drawings, application and project management of the build as well as the interior design.
