Pretty and Functional Oak Kitchen
On this occasion, it was Sue and David Wilkinson, of Beaconsfield, who were given our details, by a gentleman fitting their dishwasher!
Sue knew of us from passing the shop many years ago but until now, hadn’t had cause to use our services. However, as with any sensible consumer, before committing, she called in three separate companies to compare ideas and prices. KB Studios were fortunate to receive the commission, based on our approach and suggestions which is great feedback, as we really do pride ourselves on being genuinely interested in what people want to achieve.
Sue had strong ideas of what she wanted, so KB Studios made suggestions to tweak the ideas and incorporate a couple more that hadn’t been thought of. There was little in the way of building work, so the job was straight-forward, and consisted of the following:
- Removal of tiles and existing units
- Re-plastering three walls
- Blocking up an old pantry
- Replacing the ceiling prior to fitting the kitchen.
Units: The couple were not keen on painted or colourful units, so chose a traditional wood-effect with a British kitchen made by Charles Rennie Mackintosh called Trend Lissa Oak.
Work surfaces: 3cm Silestone Blanco City worktops.
Appliances: Neff single oven with hide and slide door, and a Neff large warming drawer below
Neff Induction hob and extractor fan
Siemens integrated fridge/freezer
Franke stainless steel undermount sink
Franke Doric filter tap
Myson kickspace heater
Floor and decorating by others.
“The physical build took three weeks, and everything ran according to plan,” says Sue. “The workmen were extremely helpful and respectful of our home and I couldn’t be happier with the end result. I’ve always loved the kitchen but now it’s so much prettier and more functional.”
