Remuera English Style Kitchen
This large, crisp white kitchen occupies a new extension that was built onto the back of an existing home. Our clients requested a classic English-looking traditional design, but with not too many ‘fiddly’ details.
In response, we gave them a definitive design of that style, with subtle detailing, such as the double raised panelling in the cabinetry doors, scalloped pillars, and dental mouldings around the upper cabinetry – all of which are a nod to those found in the famous Smallbone kitchens back in the UK.
Finishing the cabinetry in white helped to pare back the effect of some of this detailing, and the polished granite benchtops in a matching white gives the feeling of traditional elegance. Pressed tin mouldings were painted the same white colour and used as splashbacks in the main kitchen and the walk-in scullery.
Although the scullery looks very traditional, it’s packed with integrated appliances, such as a dishdrawer beneath the butler’s sink and a wide, 90cm fridge drawer beneath the microwave.
