A Fresh & Contemporary Kitchen Design By BurlanesContemporary Kitchen, London

Burlanes were commissioned to design, create and install a fresh and contemporary kitchen for a brand new extension on a beautiful family home in Crystal Palace, London. The main objective was to maximise the use of space and achieve a clean looking, clutter free kitchen, with lots of storage and a dedicated dining area.

We are delighted with the outcome of this kitchen, but more importantly so is the client who says it is where her family now spend all their time.

“I can safely say that everything I ever wanted in a kitchen is in my kitchen, brilliant larder cupboards, great pull out shelves for the toaster etc and all expertly hand built. After our initial visit from our designer Lindsey Durrant, I was confident that she knew exactly what I wanted even from my garbled ramblings, and I got exactly what I wanted! I honestly would not hesitate in recommending Burlanes to anyone.”

Hide your binIf you have the cupboard space, Jessica suggests incorporating integral kitchen bins to keep small hands from pulling over a freestanding one. If you decide to go down the child lock route, she suggests you seek out hidden designs. “These won’t ruin the look of your kitchen, as they’re hidden inside the door,” she says.

A non-integrated binFreestanding bins: untidy, invariably surrounded by splat marks from teabags, often left with the lid flipped up so everyone can share the view – and odour – of the contents. Why keep yours if you can adapt an existing under-sink cupboard to take an integrated one, where everything is hidden out of sight? Better still, if yours is divided into sections, you can even recycle more efficiently.

Put your bins awayFreestanding bins take up floor space and can be an eyesore. If you can sacrifice a cupboard, pull-out bins will be your saving grace. Not only will they conceal any rubbish, but you can opt for a mix of containers to help you separate your trash from your recycling. If you can’t spare a whole cabinet, look out for smaller door-hung bins that you can attach to the cupboard door, while leaving room for other storage. Think about positioning, too, as you will find them useful near your sink or food-prep area.

Not enough provision for rubbish and recyclingIncluding sufficient bin space to suit a household’s needs is something that’s often overlooked. Often a bin is present, and fits neatly within an internal drawer, so it maintains the kitchen’s clean aesthetic (and conceals smells), but the reality is the bin is too small and so fills up quickly, meaning constant emptying. Or another common problem is there’s no provision made for separating and storing recyclables. As with many of the other design problems covered here, this one usually comes about because the designer hasn’t understood the homeowners’ requirements, dictated by how many people are in the house, how often they cook, their style of cooking, and whether recycling is important to them. Fitting a bin with larger capacity, a bin with separate provisions (as pictured), and/or the inclusion of a kitchen waste disposal unit are all effective solutions to consider.
