Suffolk kitchen installation perfect for modern family living

We greatly enjoyed undertaking this Suffolk kitchen installation in Martlesham. Updating it to a modern traditional kitchen bringing it straight into the 21st century with latest technology and on trend colour scheme.

What started off as two smaller rooms soon became one large open plan cooking and eating area creating a light and airy space where cooking, relaxing and entertaining can all happen at one time.

Classic kitchen design

This is a quintessentially classic kitchen design from us at Debenvale and is exactly what our client was looking for. We started at the basics working with what our client was wanting from their new kitchen from the door details to the tap styles.

They were looking for a traditional styled kitchen including beading on the carcass with modern elements and Silestone Arden Blue worktop. Incorporating a gas range cooker and seating area to seat their family and guests. So, taking this on board we got started with the designing process.

A large part of the brief for this client was that they love to bake, they requested a lot of surface area, so they could spend their weekends baking and cooking. Working with that we added a curved peninsula unit to create that much needed room along with units either side of the range cooker creating a practical cooking area with everything to hand.

Soft close drawers

Featuring a lot of deep soft close drawers meant ease of access for the baking bowls and saucepans. We included integrated appliances into the units so there was more available space on the worktops.

Range cooker

We centred the range cooker to the wall and wrapped a bespoke mantle around it with detailed edges and curved corbels including inglenook cupboards containing drawers to hold spices and sauces.

The interior of all the cabinets were hand crafted in oak adding another colour and texture element to this kitchen.

Butler sink

Hidden in the units is a pull out double bin and an integrated dishwasher. Continuing the traditional theme throughout we designed a double butlers sink into the cabinets which are stepped out slightly. to allow for a deeper unit providing more storage space and worktop area. This sat symmetrically under the window creating the perfect photo opportunity.

Handpainted in Little Greene

Also hidden round the side of the peninsula unit was a wine cellar. Finishing off the units perfectly we added an exterior plinth to the base units and a 45 degree with detail cornice to the top of all the wall units. We painted the whole kitchen in Little Greene French Grey achieving the desired look our clients were after.

Bespoke seating area

On this project we worked with Total Refurb in Martlesham, Suffolk to create the perfect seating area. We designed and handcrafted the bench seating with cabinets underneath to make use of any unused space. As the seating area was unusually shaped we created a solid oak table to fit perfectly within along with a stool to fit neatly under.

Total Refurb helped the client pick the perfect fabric with the right texture and weave which meant the seating area fitted perfectly with the other material elements within this kitchen. They made them to fit exactly to our design and measurements. They include details of tufting with matching fabric covered buttons.

Boot room & Utility

Attached to the kitchen is a boot and utility room housing the washing machine and dryer. Continuing the kitchen style and colour and Silestone worktop throughout. Another double butlers sink was also included so you can clean those muddy boots down after a walk in the Suffolk country side.

To the right hand side is a boot storage area with a incorporated seating and tongue & groove panelling behind with coats hooks attached between each beading making it pretty but still functional.

Customer Testimonial

The customer was delighted with the end result “We couldn’t be happier with our new kitchen, Debenvale were first class, from Andrews initial design through to the completion. All of the tradesmen were excellent and their work was to the very highest of standards throughout, we have already recommended Debenvale to our friends and family”
