Modern Kitchen With Stunning Features
The couple had approached other companies alongside us but after seeing designer Sue’s ideas, they chose to see the project through with KBS.
“Ultimately, it was the best design, nicest range of products and the most professional approach that we encountered,” says Linda. “That inspired confidence in us to go ahead. Coupled with the fact we’d seen some of their previous work at a friend’s house, we couldn’t wait to get started.”
The kitchen fit was part of a bigger project which saw the kitchen and dining room being knocked through and the addition of an orangery. The overall brief was very flexible, but the new look overall was to be modern, unfussy and timeless – something that wouldn’t date.
The result is a modern, unfussy kitchen in a palette of grey, with some stand out features. For example, the area around the fridge freezer is highlighted by contrasting shades of Ebony Fineline to create a stunning focal point and the black roller shutters close discreetly over a glass cabinet adjacent. It’s all very tasteful and undoubtedly combines to form the ‘wow’ factor that we all look for.
In addition, there’s a utility area which Linda describes as ‘a lovely working space’, with calm grey units and glass splash-back all under the cupboards.
“We’re very happy with everything,” says Linda. “The end product, the workmanship and the communication from KBS. They kept us informed at every step and things transpired when we were promised they would be. Now we have this lovely new space that’s the hub of our home. We couldn’t be more pleased.”
