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.”
What Houzz contributors are saying:
Hide away the washingIf you have no space for that dreamt-of utility but room to spare in the kitchen, hallway, a bedroom or even the bathroom, you can create a laundry room in a cupboard. It needn’t be as extensive as this – even just a combined washer-dryer with hanging space for airing clothes above it will save you having to whip your undies off the radiator when the vicar drops in for tea. Have you noticed the slide-out drying rack here? Simple but natty.Get more ideas on how to squeeze a utility area into any size of home
Stow it in a cupboardDon’t have space for a separate utility room? These clever homeowners have created an entire laundry room inside a bank of cupboards. Fitting a full-sized airer on a pull-out tray is a genius move that ensures clothes can be hung up as soon as they are removed from the washing machine, then it can be neatly tucked back out of sight when it is finished with, or when visitors arrive.
Hide it away Creating a space for all your household needs – such as a drying rack that tucks away into a cupboard or somewhere to hang your ironing board – then concealing it all behind large doors will help to create a streamlined home. A separate sink for your laundry and lots of storage baskets are practical additions if you have more room.
Go outside the storage boxIn a kitchen, storage does not have to be simply for food or large appliances, such as dishwashers. It can be made to house an additional sink, clothes-drying space, an ironing board, shoes or coats. If space allows, you can contain a huge range of kit and clobber in your kitchen storage.
