Contemporary Kitchen Tour Radlett
Welcome to our latest kitchen tour, in the heart of Radlett, Hertfordshire.
This beautiful kitchen was designed by our talented senior designer Tom. Tom has a very specific handwriting to his kitchens and I’m sure if you’ve been following us for a while, you could probably tell which designs were his.
The first thing we’re going to get into as always is the island which has the amazing CRL Messina Quartz worktop complete with stone down stands to the floor and a mitred edge. Our lovely clients wanted something interesting on the back of the island so Tom has designed two display units (one on each side of the island) with this interesting door design – called a Berwick door which has to struts of material with a piece of glass in the centre.
The internals of the units are a Truffle brown Denver Oak by Egger and these units have LED lighting and a glass shelf just to put away some of the client’s nicer pieces.
The breakfast bar was designed in a Spevka engineered timber top and the stain matches the internals of the units. This offers some warmth and earthy tones into the kitchen as well as a different texture so we’re layering textures in this design.
In the main working area of the kitchen we have the cooking appliances which comprise of an oven and a microwave, both by Siemens. Above the oven we have put the baking tray dividers. You may see that there is a drop in this unit and that’s because we had a steel beam to contend with. That was the case throughout the kitchen but you’ll notice that nothing was compromised as we make everything here to the millimetre, hiding unsightly beams with ease.
Lot's of features to compliment
On the front side of the island we have tons of drawer storage consisting of three sets of wide drawers with internal cutlery/utensil drawers that are all internally divided. The Hob was by Bora and is a downdraft model, meaning we have 4 induction rings and the extractor is located centrally in the hob itself.
On the sink run or the wet side of the kitchen we have utilised the Premium White finish combined with the pop of Indigo blue matt cabinetry which looks amazing above the Gold Quooker Pro 3 Fusion and side by side brass sinks by the 1810 company. There is also an air switch for the ISE waste disposal and drainer grooves to the right of the sink which is less and less popular but still very handy.
At the end of the island Tom placed a caple 300mm wide wine fridge which is for the client’s white wine collection whereas the red wine collection is fully on display in the show-stopping bespoke feature wine wall. It has our lovely elements trim on three sides in the indigo blue material with brass sandwiched between them. LED lighting on three sides, mirror back panel, and then two wine racks for this amazing collection of red wine. Underneath, we’ve got the less showy wines which are in a criss-cross wine storage unit that sits at forward from this whole unit. As soon as you walk into the kitchen, it’s the first thing you see.
Opposite this the client wanted to maximise storage so we have designed floor to ceiling units which are split into dresser and base units, but it makes up a tall unit. Internally we’ve designed double thick shelves in truffle brown Denver Oak which is fully bullit holed so you can put the shelves wherever you want them and you can see it goes right back. On the larder cupboard the doors are on 180 degree hinges so the doors will open all the way back and internally you may notice we had to design the carcass in such a way as to avoid the beams.
We hope you love this as much as we do!
