Mr and Mrs Wright came to Hammonds looking to replace their tired kitchen with a beautiful new U-shaped, shaker style kitchen design that complemented the distinctive features and character of their home, a reconverted old village school.
Range: Harraton | Finish: Kitchen Alabaster
After a great experience with their new fitted Hammonds bedroom, the couple were so impressed that they booked a design visit for their kitchen. Hammonds kitchen designer, Manoj, sat down with the couple to discuss their storage needs and style preferences for their reconverted village school. Using ARTicad software and his understanding of Hammonds furniture storage and usability, he set to work to create a kitchen design the couple could see themselves enjoying for years to come.
The couple loved the look of the Harraton range, a shaker style design with a beaded finish in the inside of the frame. The range continued that classic feel while the painted finish kept this modern and fresh. From the selection of 13 painted colour tones, Mr and Mrs Wright chose a creamy and light Alabaster.
“We love the look of the shaker style kitchen cabinets and the painted finish.” Mr Wright.
The couple chose a durable and beautiful Quartz worktop in Brown AMA, highly resistant to scratches and chips. Incorporated into the kitchen design was a kitchen breakfast bar worktop in their U-shaped kitchen design. This breakfast bar enhanced the kitchen by creating relaxed space to eat and drink in the social space of the kitchen. The marble effect with light, dark and creamy grey colours married beautifully with the painted alabaster cabinet finish.
A new yet traditional AGA completed the classic look of the kitchen and the modern colour worked well with the worktop finish. Aga cookers are very efficient and create a traditional look in a modern kitchen. To maximise the use of the kitchen, storage solutions like a LeMans corner cupboard swing out shelves making reaching into the depths of the corner cupboard a thing of the past. A double larder unit with 5 adjustable shelves were also included in the design, perfect for storing long lasting food supplies like pasta, rice and tins.
"We love the look of the kitchen cupboards. It makes the kitchen look and feel much brighter, creating a lighter atmosphere for cooking and socialising." Mr and Mrs Wright
