Kitchen Design



The brief for this job was to help choose a colour scheme, then find appropriate tiles and fittings to complement the worktops and laminated wooden floor. The budget needed to complete the job was agreed before commencement.












The base and wall units were already fitted, but some needed moving and repositioning. The existing pine cabinet doors were well made and had looked good when new, but many were damaged after years of use. It was decided that it was cost effective to repair and glaze some of the doors rather than dispose of what were essentially serviceable and aesthetically pleasing components. So the hinges were replaced, the doors sanded and filled or spliced in places and new hand turned iroko handles fitted. A few of the fielded panels were replaced with laminated glass.





The colour on the walls and ceiling is shaded to conceal uneven old plastering - with the right choice surface blemishes fade into a uniform background. Architraves and skirtings were re-made and painted to complement the colour scheme, spectrographed from the tiles.



A base for the breakfast bar was constructed from redundant cabinets. An iroko top, rails and supporting leg complete the design.












The laminated wooden floor was supplied by Kahrs. It is dimensionally stable and the surface veneer thickness is adequate to give hard wearing performance. The plinths are cut from matching boards.













A new iroko window sill was fitted and plaster patched in. Like the worktops the surface is finished with oil. The sink splash surround is formica laminated onto waterproof ply, lipped with iroko.
