DESIGNED BY ANDY GILMORE
When Colin and Anne visited our Warrington showroom, not only were they impressed with the number of full kitchen displays to choose from, but they were overwhelmed by the friendly “no pressure” help and support they received.
Showroom manager Andy ran through all aspects of designing their new kitchen from worktops to lighting and potential layouts. After spending an hour or so in the showroom, Colin and Anne had by this time decided that the Fitzroy was the door for them.
Because Colin and Anne have a very narrow and straight room, it was important to use light colours in the design. After considering the Fitzroy door in Porcelain, Anne opted for the Partridge Grey, it’s a very subtle shade of grey and just adds that touch of colour to the room without being over powering. It also blends beautifully with the Kashmera Quartz worktop they chose. The Fitzroy door design is the perfect blend between traditional shaker and modern matt painted doors, it looks incredibly contemporary.
The room shape is a galley kitchen, this can limit what can be done in terms of design, but Andy made some great suggestions and improvements. Andy designed tall units into the project to house the fridge freezer and the ovens, originally it was one, very long run of low-level worktop the full length of the room. He also added a larder unit to start the run, this was to allow somewhere practical for an ironing board, mop etc. Then, with the remaining space, he created a ‘breakfront’ feature around the hob. This was an opportunity to allow for some design/feature in the room to break things up and add something to the overall look. Complemented with raised, deeper wall units and contrasting cornice, this area includes feature posts that give the hob area some real purpose, with a huge amount of drawer storage. It also meant they had a perfectly balanced run.
The other consideration was to make the sink run able to house a washing machine and dishwasher, and Colin was keen to include that all important wine storage. Andy managed to accommodate all requests, the sink run was extended from the original starting point to make full use of the space available. Andy also included plinth heater to provide a heat source in the far end of the room.
Colin & Anne are absolutely delighted with their new kitchen. Andy has created a beautiful contemporary design whilst utilising every inch of space.
