Luxury Modern Kitchen - Mill Hill
Welcome to our latest bespoke kitchen project
Welcome to our latest kitchen project. We are here in Mill Hill, just a stone’s throw from the showroom, and this is got to be one of the nicest kitchens we’ve done to date. I’m super excited to share with you this kitchen. The client has hardly moved in yet, but we had to show you.
So we’ll start where we always start with the island behind me. And this is a very, very special island. So we’ve actually built a banquette seating area on the backside of the island. So you’ll see it’s on three sides. It’s formed out of this charcoal flow material, which is a lot of the frontages on the tall units as well. And we have this soft upholstered seat. You can see that the client’s gone for this lovely, oval table in the centre with four dining chairs around it.
It’s a stunning, stunning centrepiece to this kitchen. We’ll get into the island as well a bit later on, but before that is almost a standalone area for display. There’s a tall pocket door unit. So what we’ve got either side of the pocket door unit are glazed doors. This is our berwick door, which is two strips of material in this satin black with a clear glass centre panel. Then we’ve got glass shelves internally that have been back lit, so you can see it coming all the way through to the front. Really, really lovely. As I said, unfortunately it’s not dressed just yet. And then in the centre, again, charcoal flow, this beautiful grained material. Armac Martin Sparkbrook handles have been used here which are lovely pieces of hardware.
Then we open the pocket door larder and we have the same quartzite running through here. L e d strip lighting on three sides, double thick shelves in this satin black. And then two super deep drawers which are legrabox, stainless steel sided drawer boxes.
The stone is actually a natural material. It’s a quartzite which has got the veining of a marble, but with the natural hard-wearing properties of a granite. It’s called Belvedere, absolutely stunning stuff. So it’s got a black base with sort of white amber veining internally. And you’ll see here we’ve got this lovely 30mm thick quartzite on the island and in the pantry, and as well, 30mm thick on the cooking area.
Then we get into a tall bank of units also in this charcoal flow colour. This is an incredible refrigeration piece. It’s a gaggenau 900mm wide fridge. So single door, and you can see there is just the most unbelievable space in here. Two drawers at low level, and then you’ve got a slightly shallower section at high level to make room for these racks in the backs of doors. Stainless steel internals. This is a unbelievable bit of kit. Next to this we’ve got the Siemens studio-line appliances. You’ll notice the graphite grey trim rather than the stainless steel. And these are two single ovens side by side. We’ve got storage above this which is just a shelved unit, and then below again, we’ve got more shelving.
Coming round we have another bit of food storage. This is a sort of a pantry. So we’ve got three glass fronted stainless steel sided legrabox drawers with shelves above. And then on this side of the island, we have a Siemens microwave, which is at low level.
And then we’ve got some more drawers here. This is almost like a prep area, so we’ve got a built under freezer, and then we’ve got some drawers on this side. The client’s using it for cups currently. But this is such a good serving area.
Opposite is the main cooking area of the kitchen.
So we’ve got this lovely Belvedere quartzite, again running through, and then up to the underside of these wall units. The wall units are in the satin black, and then all around that we have this charcoal flow material. So either side of the hob we’ve got. Drawers with internal cutlery drawers, with a deeper drawer below.
On this side we’ve got an internal utensil drawer. The hob is a Siemens induction hob, so it’s actually a five ring. Two flex sections and then a big wok burner in the middle. Of course, it’s induction, not gas, but it still can be used for bigger pots and patterns. And the extractor is actually recessed here into the wall unit.
So we’ve basically made this lovely cover box that you can pull out if you ever need to that services the extractor. Then there’s storage either side here, but you’ll notice how it’s set back from the remainder of this area. And then we have an L e D strip like running through in front and then also behind in this wall unit.
Coming round we have another sort of larder. This is a pullout pantry unit. So we’ve got lots of trays and racks on the back of the door. The client is using it for pasta sauce and tunas and all that sort of good stuff.
Next to this we have a double height LeMans corner. So as you can see, four trays. Usually you have a base corner with two trays. This has got four trays, non-slip mats in there. You’re using the whole corner here. And then above this, we’ve just got some fully shelved storage.
We’ve got the sink area next which is the main wet area of the kitchen. We’ve got a pullout unit here. This is a Quooker Matt black Pro three flex. So we’ve got your boiling water dispensed at the push of a button. We’ve got the pull out spray, so this is a spray feature and of course it dispenses your normal hot and cold water.
We’ve got two sinks. We’ve got a 700 wide sink and a 450 sink here, both in gun metal, which is lovely black colour, picking up on the tones of the rest of the kitchen. Another cool feature I’d like to point out is are the pop-up sockets, which is really, really useful if you’re charging a phone while you’re eating or if you’re doing some work from the, from the dining table.
And then a normal configuration for us after the sink, we have a dishwasher again by Siemens. And then this is your pull-out bin unit. And we’ve actually got an internal drawer here, which is perfect for excess bin bags. And one other thing I’d like to point out, a really, really nice thing we don’t do too often is just an external display unit, which comes up from the work top.
We’re mixing and matching the two materials that are in the rest of the kitchen. So we’ve got the charcoal flow back panel with a satin black shelving again with. Um, L e d lighting in there and then lighting on three sides on the back panel, so it glows and it has sort of a 3D effect sits forward.
