We’re delighted to have featured in Country Homes & Interiors magazine this April in an article showcasing the renovation of a 1920s Country House into a contemporary forever home.
We were invited to design the kitchen after the Williamson-Jones’ researched locally and chose Thomas & Thomas on our reputation for excellent quality and service. The brief was to create a traditional, country-chic kitchen, sympathetic to the original house.
As part of the long term renovation plan a new flint-stone wing was added to the main house. Creating a new aspect within the garden, bifold doors created the perfect setting for a kitchen and informal seating area complete with woodburning stove, the new heart of the home.
What we did
We were commissioned to design and build a bespoke shaker-style kitchen complete with island, cabinets and cooking space.
As the entire wing was new, we designed and added a mantle with chimney piers to ensure the kitchen was in keeping with the house, blending the old and the new. Doing this we were able to introduce clever storage inside the pillars for spices and oils. Invisible and accessed through touch catches.
For worktops we specified composite silestone worktops to compliment the Shaws shaker style ceramic sink and the Aga. The inclusion of a walk-in larder and utility room completed the space.
