Kitchen Before & After III
This 1930’s semi-detached home provided the basis of a long over due update to the family kitchen.
The current kitchen had been installed in the eighties; so much was required in the way of modernisation. The brief, apart from the structural requirements centred on the demands of a busy four adult family.
Easy maintenance and practical solutions for cooking, cleaning and storage were among the families’ main priorities.
Integrated Dishwasher, freestanding microwave, freestanding oven and hob, integrated washing machine, extractor, built in boiler, pan drawers, pull out storage, freestanding fridge freezer, worktop preparation space and breakfast bar were all on the ‘hit list’.
The original kitchen had a messy utility area that housed the boiler, freestanding washing machine and endless pipe work!! This area was on the other side of the archway. The new plan was to give the feeling of a single room that incorporated the integrated appliances but still retain the archway as a feature.
The room was then fitted with new plasterboard and skimmed before the new kitchen was installed.
Everything in its place…!
