Wood Works Brighton
This kitchen just needed a new life line, so the existing kitchen was gutted and we modernised it up a bit. We added clever space saving storage ideas, and kept a very clean a fresh look. The end result is amazing and a great space to be in now.

Amberth
The kitchen accommodates a full set of Neff appliances, and an Air Uno vented hob. We also installed this Ceasarstone Quartz worktop, and behind, metro style tiles to the splashback in teal, to add a pop of colour against the white cabinetry. We also exposed the original metal beams which became a feature of this apartment.

A fun, small but perfectly formed kitchen with discrete but ample storage. The decor is traditional meets pop art, with cost effective and complementary textures on the surfaces.

Chalkhouse Kitchens
A sleek and modern take on this kitchen, designed for maximum functionality. Oak veneered blue steel doors make for an eye catching statement feature, framed in white for even more impact. The rest of the kitchen has a minimalist feel with pale, low cabinets and open shelving. Also featuring a pretty and practical alcove piece, making use of an otherwise awkward space. Here we worked with the owner to open up the doorway into the room to maximise views over Penarth Marina.

Design Interiors Ltd
Our client tells us: "I cannot recommend Design Interiors enough. Tim has an exceptional eye for design, instinctively knowing what works & striking the perfect balance between incorporating our design pre-requisites & ideas & making has own suggestions. Every design detail has been spot on. His plan was creative, making the best use of space, practical - & the finished result has more than lived up to expectations. The leicht product is excellent – classic German quality & although a little more expensive than some other kitchens , the difference is streets ahead – and pound for pound exceptional value. But its not just design. We were lucky enough to work with the in house project manager Stuart who led our build & trades for our whole project, & was absolute fantastic. Ditto the in house fitters, whose attention to detail & perfectionism was impressive. With fantastic communication,, reliability & downright lovely to work with – we are SO pleased we went to Design Interiors. If you’re looking for great service, high end design & quality product from a company big enough to be super professional but small enough to care – look no further!" Our clients had previously carried out a lot of work on their old warehouse building to create an industrial feel. They always disliked having the kitchen & living room as separate rooms so, wanted to open up the space. It was important to them to have 1 company that could carry out all of the required works. Design Interiors own team removed the separating wall & flooring along with extending the entrance to the kitchen & under stair cupboards for extra storage. All plumbing & electrical works along with plastering & decorating were carried out by Design Interiors along with the supply & installation of the polished concrete floor & works to the existing windows to achieve a floor to ceiling aesthetic. Tim designed the kitchen in a bespoke texture lacquer door to match the ironmongery throughout the building. Our clients who are keen cooks wanted to have a good surface space to prep whilst keeping the industrial look but, it was a priority for the work surface to be hardwearing. Tim incorporated Dekton worktops to meet this brief & to enhance the industrial look carried the worktop up to provide the splashback. The contemporary design without being a handless look enhances the clients’ own appliances with stainless steel handles to match. The open plan space has a social breakfast bar area which also incorporate’s a clever bifold unit to house the boiler system which was unable to be moved.

Small is beautiful! It's the details in this holiday apartment in Porthleven that make all the difference. The kitchen is Masterclass Sutton H-Line (handlesless) in Heritage Grey with Oak accents on the handle rail and plinth. Solid oak shelving has been stained to match the other wood details and cleverly contrasted by industrial look lighting. The huge glass splashback in Decoglaze 'Aegean' really makes this petite kitchen stand out from the crowd.

THIS STUNNING DESIGN ENCOMPASSES ALL THE KEY ELEMENTS NEEDED TO CREATE A KITCHEN THAT IS BEAUTIFUL, FUNCTIONAL, AND TIMELESS. The deep blue island with a fitted wine fridge is perfect for hosting and entertaining. We added a walnut breakfast bar, which was a step up from the rest of the island, as per the client's request. Serving as a beautiful place for breakfast and with a view of the garden from the patio doors, the wooden worktop also brings a subtle element of nature inside.
