In the heart of Hertfordshire, our latest kitchen fitting project stands as a testament to our expertise in blending functionality with style. This particular project was a single wall kitchen with an added island, designed to offer the homeowners a cozy yet efficient cooking space. The clients envisioned a kitchen that was not only practical for their everyday needs but also a stylish addition to their home.

Client Requirements

  • A preference for a classic kitchen style with a modern twist, incorporating a subtle yet impactful color scheme.
  • The need for high-quality, durable materials for countertops, ensuring longevity and ease of maintenance.
  • An emphasis on adding unique design elements to create a kitchen that’s both inviting and stylish, reflecting their personal taste.
  • A practical arrangement of kitchen amenities, including an ideally positioned sink and effective storage solutions, to facilitate a smooth cooking experience.

Our approach

  • Layout Design: The single wall layout was chosen for its efficiency in space utilization, while the addition of an island provided extra work and storage space.
  • Color Scheme and Style: We selected a light grey color for the cabinetry, ensuring it would brighten the kitchen and make it feel more spacious. The black handles were chosen to create a striking contrast, adding a contemporary edge to the classic Shaker style.
  • Material Selection: White quartz was used for the worktops, prized for its durability and ease of maintenance, along with its elegant appearance.
  • Feature Elements: The mosaic tile splashbacks were carefully selected to complement the overall design, adding both color and texture.

The main challenge was to effectively integrate an island into the galley layout without disrupting the kitchen’s flow and functionality. It was crucial to maintain sufficient space for movement while ensuring the island served as a practical addition to the kitchen.

The Result

The completed kitchen is a harmonious blend of classic and modern elements, exquisitely meeting the clients’ requirements. The light grey Shaker-style cabinets, accented with black handles, provide a sophisticated yet inviting ambiance. The white quartz worktops add a sleek, clean finish, while the mosaic tiles introduce a unique, artistic flair. The island, skillfully integrated into the layout, has become the focal point of the kitchen, offering additional workspace and housing the sink for maximum convenience.

The kitchen has transformed into more than just a culinary space; it’s a central gathering point in the home, where functionality meets aesthetic elegance.
