The Myers Touch was founded by Keith and Helena Myers in 2003 with the vision to open a premium design studio that creates truly bespoke kitchen-living spaces. After working from their family home for the first three years, Keith and Helena opened their first design studio in Winchester in 2006, which features a stunning range of kitchen displays from iconic German kitchen manufacturer SieMatic complemented with luxury appliances from Sub-Zero, Wolf, Miele and Gaggenau. Established nearly 20 years, The Myers Touch comprises a team of award-winning designers who are passionate about delivering creative design in kitchen spaces with exceptional customer service.
From statement islands, home bars and luxury appliances to ladder rails, integrated lighting and home-office spaces, the design team at The Myers Touch share the wishlist dreams of their customers…
LUXURY STATEMENT ISLANDS
For many of their customers, a statement island can be created by its size, curves, colour or lighting features. For example, adding hand-painted gold and copper leaf veining can look stunning swept through white gloss curved cabinets to add a touch of luxury to a contemporary space.
HOME BARS FOR ENTERTAINING
Director Helena Myers reveals that many of their customers are seeking out home bars and wine storage solutions as part of their dream kitchen entertaining space. With the increase in homeworking, some of these spaces even include a desk area so they double up as a seamless office space.
LADDER RAILS AS DESIGN FEATURES
When designing a kitchen in a property that has high ceilings, The Myers Touch design team often make use of the bonus space by adding a ladder rail that allows a homeowner to reach high-level display or storage cabinets.
A ladder rail attached to the top of your cabinetry not only provides an interesting, eye-catching design feature to a space but also provides function, as it allows you to slide the ladder across the rail before climbing up to easily access kitchenware or special decorative items.
What’s more, when the ladder isn’t in use, designers can create a space on either side of the rail system so that it can be neatly stored away in a niche space.
FEATURE LIGHTING TO CREATE ATMOSPHERE
Clever displays and tones allow you to change the atmosphere, tone and look of your kitchen throughout the day and into the night. From choosing integrated lighting in cabinetry or architectural-toned lighting that shines against a Corian solid surface back panel that showcases a distinctive geometric pattern, it all adds texture and interest.
Storage remains one of the most important aspects of all kitchen wish lists. From cutlery and utensil drawers, breakfast cupboards and walk-in pantry cupboards, customers at The Myers Touch love the range of functional storage features they can include. Clever storage ideas range from spice cupboards hidden behind sliding splashbacks, walk-in utility and larders behind hidden pocket doors and pop-up TVs hidden in peninsulas, which all help keep kitchens clutter-free.
