16th Century Cottage

Located on the Waitrose Leckford Estate, you can’t help but marvel at the beautiful landscape our hardworking farmers have created. Driving down the lanes to this customer’s home you pass vineyards and some of the most handsome cows I’ve ever seen - a photo or two of them has crept onto the website!

This 16th Century whitewashed cottage was a challenge. With incredibly thick walls, an awkward layout and lots of doors and openings, there was only one place to locate the Everhot 120i – in the old fireplace. But rather than look into a tiles wall, we persuaded the client to open it up so that they could keep an eye on the children in the Dining Room whilst cooking. It's these small touches that are important for truly making your kitchen an essential part of your home and life. 

The next challenge was to maximise storage space and the food preparation area, as per the client's wishes. A double depth peninsular was the obvious choice, as this provides a large worktop space for meal preparation and an impressive amount of storage for all cooking equipment. 

A note on colour. Most kitchen companies restrict you to a limited palette of colours. We don’t. We colour match to any colour or colours of your choice and, unlike other kitchen specialists, there’s no surcharge.

As you can see, this kitchen benefits from fittings in an elegant shade of flushed pink. Our living spaces should reflect who were are as people and this kitchen strikes the perfect balance between individuality and a chic traditional aesthetic. 

By implementing our philosophy of less is more and by avoiding the temptation to add any wall cabinets, our clients were ecstatic at the open and airy room we created. Due to the pops of colour, it was important not to overload the room and make it look too busy, so we ensured it would be sophisticated and stylish.
