An impressive classic shaker kitchen in white, with a large island unit in Little Green paint for clients in Chiswick Green, Solihull

Our clients needed a lot of appliances and storage but didn’t want it to be on show; they also wanted a large island and a drinks area.

We designed a large island unit with an L shaped breakfast bar with seating for 4; featuring a Belfast sink, hob and down draft extractor.  The island also housed a dishwasher, pull-out bin and plenty of storage space in beautiful dovetail drawers and cupboards beneath the breakfast bar.  At the sink end of the island unit, as the worktop was so wide, there was plenty of room for storage. A cupboard door would have spoilt the aesthetics of the unit, so we made a press to open door out of tongue and groove; cleverly disguising the storage as an end panel.

A bank of units along one of the walls housed a pantry unit (with extra worktop space inside), larder shelves and a broom cupboard.  When the doors were closed it created beautiful symmetry with drawers from the pantry unit creating interest.

The other bank of units housed a utility area, two ovens, a tall fridge and freezer; and a drinks area was designed to both work with, and disguise the pillar that separated what had been two rooms.  The pillar was clad in tongue and groove panelling with shelving for glassware inset into the alcoves at either side. Beneath the worktop area were two slim wine coolers and additional storage.

Corian worktops in Glacier White completed the look.
