St Johns Wood

Touring a luxury kitchen design by our Design Director Rich.

This kitchen incorporated luxury modern design elements utilising slab doors painted in All White paired with stainless steel accents. We utilised Silestone Iconic Boost worktops with angled stone leg on the island. This kitchen had Gaggenau 400 series appliances to give a slightly more modern kitchen aesthetic.

A Practical, Luxury Kitchen

Welcome to our latest luxury kitchen project in St. John’s Wood. This bespoke kitchen was fitted in a basement which we don’t often get to do, so we’re really excited to show this one-off.

The first thing you’re going to notice here is the island and, more importantly, the angled stone leg which comes all the way down to the floor – this is a feature from our Ascella range which is shown in our Mill Hill showroom and seems to be very popular.

An overhang of 300m acts as a breakfast bar that easily accepts stools underneath. The stone worktop is Silestone Iconic white, which has a really crisp, fresh look. The wall colours are a beigey tone, at the client’s request to bring something bright and white to lighten up the room. Pendant lights hang above the island, which gives a nice ambience.

To the left of the kitchen, we have designed and made a TV unit which we don’t often do, but seeing as it is literally off of the kitchen, we thought we would have some input. It’s a display unit come TV unit painted in a Farrow and Ball Inchyra blue which is a charming blue-green colour. The garden sits just off the TV unit with glazed double doors that open out and let lovely natural light in.

Appliances & Features To Compliment

Another feature of the Ascella kitchen is a tall run of units coupled with the island that has an angled downstand. The first unit in his run is a pullout larder which is 30cm wide. This can be used for all your spices, cans, tinned goods and oils.

The next unit is a 900mm wide Gaggenau fridge-freezer. The freezer is a drawer which sits at a low level, and above you have a large single opening door with the trademark stainless steel internals.Next along, we have a narrow storage unit, fully shelved. One thing to point out here is the handle detail. We recess in a piece of stainless steel from behind, which acts as a handle.

The island frontages are a light concrete laminate which houses lots of storage and a Gaggenau 200 series gas hob with a large wok burner in the centre. Across from this on the tall run, we have a further two Gaggenau 200 series appliances, which are side by side ovens. Again you can see the trademark Gaggenau dials.

The Pocket door larder is next (always a fan favourite), where we continue the same worktop through from the island. Double sockets cut into the back panel in a lovely dark Oak interior, double thickness shelves, LED strip lighting on three sides and drawer storage underneath.

Sitting adjacent to this is the open display unit which has shelves to store cookbooks or other ornaments. It has been spray lacquered to match the tall run of units.

The sink run comprises of a 700mm wide stainless steel under-mount sink, a Quooker Fusion all in one tap which provides hot, cold and boiling water (we supply these in practically every kitchen we make) and next to this we have a dishwasher and bin making the wet run of units extremely practical.

We hope you love this as much as we do!

What a wonderful experience from beginning to end. We certainly weren’t the easiest customers , we weren’t sure what we wanted or when ! However Donna, Richard, Rich and their amazing team guided us through the process with utter professionalism as well as warmth and patience. The results exceeded our expectations, particularly the attention to every detail. They wouldn’t rest until they knew we were happy with everything. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them or use them again.

Alan Burton

Woodworks provided us with excellent service, from planning and design to finished kitchen

Build quality is excellent and it really does give the house the WOW factor

Our kitchen was part of a new build process for house we have built from scratch. Deadlines constantly moved, and Woodworks worked around everybody to get the job done on time and in full

After sales is very good, with tweaks to doors and cupboards all part of the service!

It has been an absolute pleasure to deal with The Wood Works. Our existing kitchen was 20 years old, and the layout of the room did not make use of the available space. Josh produced inspired ideas for re-designing the whole area, and really listened to what we wanted to achieve, patiently fine-tuning the plans to our particular requirements. We are now the proud owners of a stunning and practical new kitchen which has completely exceeded our expectations. When my sister visited for the first time, she said "it looks like the kitchen of a celebrity chef!" (which I am not). What a transformation. The Wood Works is a family-run business, and that really shows in terms of their professional service, quality of fittings, attention to detail, reliability and easy communication. Nothing was too much trouble. At the start of the project, Josh promised we would have our kitchen by Christmas. I was sceptical as we were in the midst of the pandemic, but they delivered as promised, with no hitches. Thoroughly recommend.


Brilliant Service!

We are delighted with the kitchen supplied and fitted by The Woodworks. The design, look and quality is brilliant. The designer (Tom Dodd), the project manager (Andy Neville) and the fitters were all brilliant. Always helpful and responsive. A really pleasing experience with Woodworks and a brilliant finished kitchen.

The design collated by Tom was brilliant and tailored brilliantly to our exact requirements.

I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them.
