The clients constructed from scratch a huge double storey extension which spans the width of an existing period property in a rural location. They wanted a traditional look with a contemporary twist, which was achieved by using the classic Knowle Edwardian door from Stoneham kitchens. For the multi-functioning island walnut was chosen as a door finish to contrast with the creamy latte painted finish of the Aga wall run.
To create both the functionality and look required by the client, drawings were made of the specific cabinetery required for the Aga wall, which had to incorporate a combination of draws, pullouts, and wall cabinets with glass shelves and doors. These were then made to order and painted. Housing was also created to seat a Miele combi oven/microwave.
The client wanted a large island where food could be prepared and guests entertained whilst cooking is in process. The island houses a dishwasher, several pull-out drawers and storage cupboards on both sides. The stylish look of the island is finished with plinth lights and traditional ‘cup’ handles in chrome.
A matching utility in walnut and latte was also completed.
Underfloor heating was laid throughout the entire extension which also has a large dining area with separate seating area, and 900 x 600mm Casablanca tumbled limestone fitted on the floor.
Feedback from the client:
“Mark was absolutely fantastic throughout the whole process – he came out to site at least 12 times and we enjoyed the whole process”
