Sleek and seamless modern corian kitchen transformation in Felixstowe, Suffolk

Design brief:

Our customer originally had a traditional country style kitchen with oak doors and black granite worktops but was looking to modernise and create a more contemporary feel to their kitchen. They wanted a central island unit and were looking to include two built in ovens side by side, integrated appliances and an induction hob.

The design:

We offer all styles of doors in any colour, wood or finish with many samples to see and feel in our showroom. Having discussed the options, our customer decided they liked the look of the flat door with a ‘j’ shape handle built in to keep the sleek style they were looking for. They opted for an off white/pale grey colour with a modern satin finish.

We discussed the pros and cons of different worktops and gave some samples to the customer to take away with them to help them decide.

The customer liked the look and feel of Corian which gives a hygienic and completely seamless work surface carrying through to the upstands, splashback and built in sink with a practical steel base.

They chose a tap by Franke in a silk steel finish to compliment this modern corian kitchen.

Storage was an important feature so the design included large pull out drawers providing plenty of space for plates, pans and kitchen utensils and with runners capable of holding weights of up to 40kg. All cupboards have high quality soft close hinges and the bi folding wall units provide additional storage in keeping with the overall contemporary style.

A concealed pull out sectioned bin and space saving LeMans pull out corner was included within the design to maximise storage space.

All lighting, electrical and plumbing work was also included.

Appliances:

As an authorised dealer of many leading brands, we discussed the product features available and our customer opted for Miele single oven with moisture plus and combination microwave oven with a warming drawer, a 5 zone induction hob, integrated larder fridge and dishwasher.

For extraction, a slimline Elica sleek white glass hood was chosen as this is discrete, simple and stylish from the underside and again adds to the modern feel

Customer comments:

“I love the design of my kitchen, it’s well thought out and makes the best use of the space in the room. Andrew is very knowledgable and clearly enjoys what he does, everything was thought about and planned for so that there were no hidden expenses later down the line. He really listened to me and understood what I was trying to achieve and gave me lots of ideas and practical advice.

I cannot fault the team who installed the kitchen, they were all friendly and professional and did a fantastic job. The fit went really smoothly and I always felt at ease with everyone and that nothing was ever too much trouble.

I am so happy with our kitchen, I would definitely recommend the team at Debenvale.”

Some great ideas for choosing a kitchen or bathroom floor

When designing your kitchen or bathroom there are so many factors to consider;  door styles, work surfaces, splash backs, appliances and of course flooring.

At our Suffolk based showroom we show a range of flooring on our kitchen and bathroom displays along with sample boards and tiles for you to see, feel and get some great design ideas for your kitchen or bathroom flooring. We will take time to discuss the many options with you during our design process and to ensure that your choice of flooring is the most suitable for your home and lifestyle.

For natural beauty, choose from travertine, limestone, marble, slate or terracotta. Stone floors are long lasting and are available in a range of sizes and finishes whether tumbled, brushed, honed or polished to achieve your desired look.  Stone tiles are porous so we will carefully seal them for you once laid and provide advice on the most suitable cleaning products to maintain their beautiful finish.

Porcelain is a popular choice, being much harder than ceramic and so offering a durable and hardwearing floor while achieving a stunning finish.  Porcelains can give the appearance of marble, stone or even wood, being waterproof and stain resistant they make a great choice for any kitchen or bathroom floor.

 

Another great idea for kitchen or bathroom floor tiles and currently on trend is to use decorative patterned tiles to provide a focal point or divide the floor area, to separate kitchen and dining for example. The effect is stunning.

Wood flooring offers warmth and gives character to your room. You can choose from a range of timber including Oak and Walnut.

A solid and structurally sound base is essential to avoid cracking or movement and this is all part of the work that our experienced fit team will undertake during the preparation process to make sure that your flooring stands the test of time.

Under floor heating can also be fitted under your flooring with a timed thermostat keeping you in control of your floor temperature all year round.

 

To discuss your next project and get some more flooring ideas for kitchens or bathrooms, please pop along to the showroom to see samples for yourself or get in touch to book a free personal design.

Work in progress…take a peek behind the scenes at a Debenvale kitchen installation

Our fit team have been busy working on a kitchen installation in Suffolk. The hand built solid wood carcases and shaker style in frame doors have been carefully fixed into place along with the crafted wine rack feature and decorative mantel.

Skilled craftsmanship and meticulous attention to detail at this stage is essential to ensure that the furniture is built to last and in perfect position ready for template for the granite surfaces to be fitted.

The Debenvale team will manage all aspects of this kitchen installation, including all electrical and plumbing work, painting and tiling along with any minor building works that are required.

The frames and doors will have a hand painted finish using a classic and timeless paint colour chosen by our client from the “Little Green” paint company.

The porcelain floor with a travertine design has already been laid in an opus pattern using a variety of sizes and will complete the look and feel of the room at the end of this project.
