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.

In the article that accompanies the entire project it is stated the wood on the island is Black American Walnut. To me it looks like there is no stain applied and sealed/varnished.

Pendent Lights - These lights are absolutely perfect for this space. Are these actual antiques or are they reproduction? If reproduction, would you please let me know the manufacturer? Thank you!

Paint - What is the paint color?

Metal pendant lights help define the island and add another traditional-style element to the kitchen. Enna pendant lights: Moretti Luce via Broughtons of Leicester. Find more metal pendant lights

Idee met hogere bar, maar lagere wasbak, ik zou dan ook stuk werkblad op die hoogte doen, hoger deel richting de 2 buitenkanren van het huis, lager deel richting keuken, onder hoger deel kunnen dan ook krukken staan
