Open, airy kitchen in Rutland, UK Farmhouse Kitchen

Bright, open and airy

Knocking through a few rooms to create a large open-plan area, the owners of this sleek kitchen wanted to create a free, fluid space that made the kitchen the unequivocal hub of the home whilst at the same time stylistically linking to the rest of the property.

We were tasked with creating a large open-plan kitchen and dining area that also leads through to a cosy snug, ideal for relaxing after a hard afternoon over the Aga!! The owners gave us creative control in the space, so with a loose rein and a clear head we fashioned a faultless kitchen complete with a large central island, a sunken sink and Quooker tap.

For optimum storage (and a dash of style) we built a number of large larders, one of which cleverly conceals a television, as well as a false chimney surround to frame the Aga and a bespoke drinks unit.

All the units are hand-crafted from Quebec Yellow Timber and hand-painted in Zoffany ‘Smoke’ and ‘Elephant Gray’ Walnut worktops, with Silestone ‘Lagoon’ Worktops around the outside and American Black Walnut on the island.

I love the wood counter and tie in (under the sink) - What wood was used for the island counter and how was it treated.

Love the flooring and the cabinet colour! What is the flooring? - What material and source for the tile - what is the size? Elephant Gray is the cabinet paint? Is that a Benjamin Moore colour?

“The dresser in the dining room houses all of the owners’ best glasses and crockery,” Ashwin says. “The center section is reserved for drinks. It’s mirror-backed with lights inside and has a pullout shelf for making drinks and cocktails.” The drawers and cabinet underneath provide plenty of room for napkins and tableware.

Pullout work surface under steam oven? Might it be unnecessary due to counter top’s close proximity?
