This kitchen renovation in Felsted, Essex brought a huge amount of character to a grand new build and our client’s spacious home.

Contemporary details coupled with traditional style cabinets create a truly welcoming space. The shaker cabinets are hand-painted in Farrow & Ball’s ‘Strong White’ and although the handles are also traditional in style, their chrome finish helps to bridge the gap between old and new.

The centre-piece of this spectacular bespoke family kitchen design is the extra large island with its Super-White Quartzite Granite worktop. Practical stainless steel is used for the surrounding worktops, again bringing in modern aspects to the design. On one side of the island, two wine coolers sit at either end – with breakfast bar opposite. The 5-oven black AGA and chimney extractor canopy create another strong focal point in this kitchen design. For convenience and in summer months, a backup oven and gas hob can be found to one side of the AGA. This modern-meets-traditional style kitchen also features tall pantry and dresser cabinets to maximise storage and fill the ample space available.
