Hand Painted Kitchen in Derbyshire

Having worked with Matthew James previously, we knew we were in safe hands

The kitchen links one side of the house to the other and when the family visits it's a very busy area.

The original kitchen wasn't entirely practical, there was plenty of preparation area but the oven was in a tall housing in the alcove at the far end of the room and opened across the door into the kitchen. It was also at head height for the grand children so needed to be moved.

Although they initially had specific ideas and a long wish list that included a range cooker and a Quooker hot water tap, we found this changed as the design developed and we soon had a design that was practical and worked for them.

Though they kept the Quooker tap as part of the design, they did however opt for a built in Brittania twin oven at eye level, with a separate Siemens induction hob, instead of a range cooker. The reason for this was that they still had the cooking capacity of a range cooker but didn't have to get on their hand and knees to clean the oven!

The most nerve-wracking process for them, though, was choosing the granite, because if you pick the wrong colour, there's no going back. We therefore arranged for them to visit our granite suppliers so that they could see what was in stock and to pick the exact slab for their kitchen. After a few sleepless nights the decision was made and they chose Giallo Veneziano Fiorito, which is simply stunning. All that was left then was a decision on the colour for the hand painted cabinets.

A fresh palette of Farrow & Ball's Wimborne White for the hand made kitchen cabinets and Skimming Stone for the walls were chosen with porcelain floor tiles, which together with low voltage ceiling lights helped to keep the room light. An American Walnut larder was built in to the alcove where the oven once was, which conceals a fridge and two pull out larders, as well as drawer storage. Walnut was also used on features such as the pull out trays, chopping boards, wine rack and cupboard knobs.

The client's favourite part of the kitchen is the curved cabinets - not only do they allow the room to flow smoothly, but are able to open them back completely so when they host a buffet the plates can remain in the cupboard but are easily accessible.
