Farmhouse Kitchen and Bootroom
When the owners of this beautiful farmhouse moved into their property, they set about renovating key rooms, completing the refurbishment with a redesign of their kitchen and boot room with the help of Kestrel Kitchens.
Their old hand built kitchen lacked the storage and flexibility required for modern day living and having used Kestrel for multiple projects in the past, owner Sue knew we’d be able to design a fresh clean lined look that would do justice to the spectacular space.
Sue said, “I first used Kestrel about 25 years ago and they’ve always delivered on their promise of exceptional quality. What I enjoy most about working with them is their project management skills and design solutions. I have complete trust and confidence in their ability to coordinate the project effectively. Paul and his team give me peace of mind and their great eye for detail is what really sets the business apart from other kitchen manufacturers.”
Using the existing footprint, we optimised storage space and accessibility by incorporating drawer front cabinetry throughout. Attention was paid to the layout, with the oven and hob moved to the same side of the room as the Aga to achieve a more cohesive and ergonomic design.
The real star of the show is a large 4 bi-fold unit that is the perfect clutter-free solution for small appliances and crockery. This required a custom design for ease of use and bespoke fitting so that it perfectly suited the design aesthetic of the space.
Farrow and Ball’s Beverly shade, a deep green hue, was chosen for the painted cabinetry and the centre island and full height unit was finished in a natural cats paw oak that adds stunning character graining to the design. Hardwearing, luxurious Caesarstone worktops were fitted throughout.
Keen to add the final finishing touches to the decor, the owners selected a Rosalind Lyons print in a matching colour palette to adorn the wall.
This large bootroom is full of character and charm and so its design was aimed to complement the features of the room.
An antique unused safe was repositioned to the centre of the wall and painted to match the cabinetry – Farrow and Ball Yearbridge Green, a contemporary bright avocado green colour.
Storage units and integrated appliances feature either side and a centre island with custom drawers offer hideaway space. An oak finished coat rack and other custom furniture complete the look. Kestrel Kitchens managed the whole project, including modifying an old church pew, new flooring and underfloor heating.
