Uber cool with warmth


When the client approached Town and Country Interiors for their design input, it was not for the first time. This time the property was a 1930’s detached house with a kitchen that was too small for cooking and entertaining. A large glazed extension into the landscaped gardens was created making it the focal point of the home for not only cooking and entertaining but also casual dining and entertaining.


The owner came for the initial consultation with Bill and they worked with the architects’ plans to determine the different designs and possibilities, taking into consideration the clients’ wish list. The creative design included ample storage and high specification appliances to satisfy the clients’ passion for cooking and entertaining.


A large island was decided on to include a sink, dishwasher, hob and extractor and casual dining area. It was positioned so that the client could take advantage of their views out of the large glazed extension. A bank of tall cabinets was required to house oven, combination steam oven, fridge and freezer and storage.


The clean lines of a Poggenpohl handleless kitchen was the firm favourite and the warmer blossom white was chosen. The work surface was Silestone 2cm Unsui, a warm coffee brown, and the kitchen was framed with 50mm thick bespoke goal posts, lacquered in a colour to match the worktop. As the client enjoys cooking Gaggenau appliances were chosen. Their handleless ovens fitted perfectly with the handleless kitchen. A Zip hot and cold drinks station was positioned to the right of the banks of tall cabinets, once again framed in 50mm bespoke goalposts.


The flooring was a unique large format tile imported from Spain, with under floor heating incorporating the kitchen, dining and lounge area.
