In a grade II listed building Mr and Mrs Oakley came to Hammonds after a great previous experience with their fitted bedroom furniture. They sought after a bright, uplifting fitted kitchen in keeping with the rustic, country aesthetic that could work with the characteristic oak beams and exposed brickwork.
Range: Windsor | Finish: Kitchen Sea Salt
Mr and Mrs Oakley came to Hammonds for their fitted kitchen after being impressed with the service they received with their fitted bedroom . The sloped ceilings and awkward angles were handled well by Hammonds; so they had a clear idea who they wanted to fit their kitchen.
As the central hub of the house, the open plan kitchen was split between entrance ways and an exposed brick wall divider. Hammonds kitchen designer Keeshak worked with these charismatic features to create their beautiful fitted kitchen. Mr and Mrs Oakley wanted a classic range with a modern edge, the distinctive shaker style Highbury kitchen range with a painted finish suited their style and preferences.
As the Oakley’s use their kitchen for not only cooking and eating but socialising too, the family wanted the space to work with this lifestyle flow. Not only did expert kitchen designer Keeshak plan fitted units to spaces that kept walkways clear but was also able to recommend a range of kitchen storage solutions to suit the family. The double door pantry larder units provided floor to ceiling storage for food supplies, fitting beautifully in an alcove within the kitchen. A Caple wine chiller fitted within a unit with cupboard storage either side gave the family space to store and pour drinks.
With an inset frame, the shaker style Highbury is a classic look that oozes connotations of countryside charm. Painted in a tone with a contemporary edge, the light colour brightens the space. The couple chose ‘Sea Salt’ from the edited palette of 13 available colours in this range. A muted greyish green that adapts to the natural light available.
“I absolutely love my kitchen! From the initial design up to the fitting, it was seamless. I was impressed with the design, it’s a complicated room and they were able to work with it so well. I would definitely recommend Hammonds.” Mr and Mrs Oakley
