A Modern Bespoke Kitchen In Edgware.
Welcome to our latest project in Edgware London, a lovely family home for a delightful client who is a previous client of our business founders, Donna and Richard, with their current bespoke kitchen being designed by us over 30 years ago.
When we returned to see the kitchen and its requirements for refurbishment, it was still in pristine condition but very traditional. The family wanted a new, refreshed look and feel, so we set about designing them a new modern kitchen with a completely different layout, and we didn’t disappoint!
Bespoke, Luxurious & Practical
The stunning quartz worktop used is one of our own-brand stones called Lavendar. It’s flecked with silver and taupe and picked up by the two colours used for the units, with a cashmere grey and a stone grey for the cabinetwork.
The first base unit features a flap-up fitting that allows the shelf to lock into place, providing a helpful place to keep an item such as a heavy food mixer. Our clients were keen bakers, so this was a priority in the kitchen!
Coming on to the first working part of this bespoke kitchen, you’ll notice that this is a kosher kitchen, which means there is a section for Milk and one for Meat cooking.
The main meat area has a six-ring induction hub from Siemens, where we have our extractor above in a built-in housing. We’ve hidden all the gubbins behind the boxing and designed shelves above there. We have a shallower drawer with an internal cutlery drawer underneath the hob, and we then crafted a deeper drawer underneath for pots and pans.
Another thing to point out is the i-move fitting housed in a wall unit, a spice rack that pulls down to eye level as the wall units were quite tall due to the high ceilings in the room. This enables our client to access the spices a bit easier.
Moving onwards, we have what is a fairly typical layout for us as a company where we designed a dishwasher, double sink and bin unit. This is a two-part sorter bin. In the corner, we have this lovely LeMans corner fitting that enables you to maximize the storage and have no void where the tall units meet the base units. Each of these fittings has two trays. We’ve also designed a little niche where the Morphy Richards blenders usually live.
You might also notice the mirror splashback – above the upstand and underneath the wall units. We’ve got this lovely mirror which bounces a lot of light around. Then we have the main tall run of the kitchen. So this is a standard configuration for us, where we’ve designed the tall stack of appliances – here being two ovens, a microwave and a steam oven. Either side of that, we’ve got freezer on one side and larder fridge on the other. You can see that this client likes to drink a bit of wine, so we’ve got wine racking above both of these two units. The other quite handy thing that we’ve built here, as you’ve seen in many of our projects, is the vertical baking tray dividers above the oven, which is handy to keep everything organized. We also have storage below the oven.
We then have the milk section, which is slightly smaller, but we’ve got plenty of drawer storage here. We’ve also got a smaller two ring induction hub with another extractor built-in underneath there. Finally, another sink and dishwasher with an extra LeMans corner unit. Again, lots of food storage in here. And then finally ending on one of our favourites – a pull-out Tandem Lauder, where we’ve got incredible amounts of food storage, or for dried goods; cereals etc.
