|At first we were
undecided whether or not to have a separate utility room, so Matthew James
provided two designs, one with and one without. As soon as we saw the designs
we instantly knew which was right for us and it was definitely
Painted furniture was chosen topped with a mixture of
granite and warm wood to accentuate the unfitted yet elegant look of this
beautiful handmade dining kitchen. A laundry cabinet was included to provide a
hide away for the washing machine and tumble dryer, as well as slated shelving
to air the clean washing, ready for ironing.
The success of the island can be attributed to its
multfunctional design. The vast granite worktop serves as a perfect preparation
area, while the double farmhouse sink is positioned on the inner side of the
island looking out onto the room, but also benefits by having a view of the
garden. A microwave, dishwasher and pull out cargo bin are also built in. The
low-level bookcase to the end of the island was finished with a warm timber top
and leads into the dinning area of the room.
The dresser was a little
gem, as it came out of Matthew James's showroom and was re-painted in Lizard
Green to provide a subtle contrast to the cream of the kitchen.
