Norton kitchen in 16th Century House

The Brief
The clients already had their dream kitchen in their previous house and wanted to reproduce this in their new house, a barn conversion dating back to the 16th Century.  They particularly wanted white corian worktops, an induction hob and white gloss units with as much storage as possible in deep pan drawers.

The Result
A gleaming white Colonial kitchen packed full of useful storage features and units.  The immediate impression is of light and space created through a combination of careful kitchen design and the beautiful run of white corian worktops. During the build it was discovered that the chimney supporting walls could not be moved, so the extractor the clients wanted would not fit.  The problem was solved by bringing the hob unit forward to fit in a Caple Upriser extractor behind the hob.  Other appliances include a Miele oven housed underneath a Kuppersbuch microwave adjacent to the corian sink. The new boiler was housed inside tall wall units with useful shelf space created underneath.  A particular hit with the client are the two curved units, whose rounded edges are perfect when baking with small grandchildren in the kitchen.  A drawer to hold knives was commissioned within the cupboard housing the bin, well away from little hands. All the appliances are situated in one half of the kitchen, leaving the other half a safe zone for cooking with children.

The Feedback
“We love our new kitchen, and we have exactly what we wanted.  All the people who worked on it were really nice and nothing was a problem for them.  A big thank you to Mark and the team, and to Ian the fitter”.
