A Kitchen Extension in Coventry

This Coventry based home wanted to give the rear of their property a much-needed makeover and our architects were more than happy to help out! We worked closely with the homeowners to create a space that is perfect for entertaining and offers plenty of country style design touches both of them were keen to bring on board. When devising the rear extension, our team kept things simple. Opting for a classic square element, our team designed the project to sit within the property’s permitted development rights. This meant instead of a full planning application, the home merely had to secure a lawful development certificate. This help saves time, money, and spared the homeowners from any unwanted planning headaches. For the space itself, we wanted to create somewhere bright, airy, and with plenty of connection to the garden. To achieve this, we added a set of large bi-fold doors onto the rear wall. Ideal for pulling open in summer, and provides an effortless transition between kitchen and picnic area. We then maximised the natural light by including a set of skylights above. These simple additions ensure that even on the darkest days, the home can still enjoy the benefits of some much-needed sunlight. You can also see that the homeowners have done a wonderful job of combining the modern and traditional in their selection of fittings. That rustic wooden beam is a simple touch that immediately invokes that countryside cottage charm, while the slate wall gives a stylish modern touch to the dining area. The owners have threaded the two contrasting materials together with their choice of cream fittings and black countertops. The result is a homely abode you just can’t resist spending time in.

Sonata A beautiful composition that comprises of a pair of island units at its generous heart. The soft, two-tone melody of teal and mocha harmonises this scheme in a way that is both subtle and distinctive. The added touch of grooved and textured cabinetry makes this kitchen as unique as the family for which it was created. Bronze handles add a hint of glamour and complement the effect of the windows. Restrained yet welcoming, classic in feel yet with a contemporary panache, this design hits all the right notes.

This classic kitchen is understated, yet outstandingly beautiful. Our clients had a very clear general idea of the layout they wanted, it was up to us to fine-tune their thoughts and bring them to reality. The general consensus was for a dark-painted island, a cooking area along the back wall, and seating by the window. Overall, the design is complex and detailed, as the room had structural components that needed to be concealed without breaking up the flow of the space. The chimney breast is a faux addition that fits into the proportions of the room perfectly, and one of its piers conceals a steel support.

Westbury Garden Rooms
The original space was a long, narrow room, with a tv and sofa on one end, and a dining table on the other. Both zones felt completely disjointed and at loggerheads with one another. Attached to the space, through glazed double doors, was a small kitchen area, illuminated in borrowed light from the conservatory and an uninspiring roof light in a connecting space. But our designers knew exactly what to do with this home that had so much untapped potential. Starting by moving the kitchen into the generously sized orangery space, with informal seating around a breakfast bar. Creating a bright, welcoming, and social environment to prepare family meals and relax together in close proximity. In the warmer months the French doors, positioned within this kitchen zone, open out to a comfortable outdoor living space where the family can enjoy a chilled glass of wine and a BBQ on a cool summers evening.

Rencraft Ltd
Working with our clients to understand how they imagined using the new space, our designer created a minimalist layout that worked with (rather than dominating) the open-plan nature of the room. A combination of SieMatic and Rencraft cabinetry was suggested, with the statement SieMatic island providing the desired nod to a modern aesthetic while the more traditional elements of the Rencraft cabinetry (the oak interiors and the bevelled door detail) helped to gently blend this style with the history and heritage of the property as a whole. The large (3 metre) island houses both the Miele hob and extractor and the duo integrated sink with Quooker to create a linear workspace. The sink has been moulded with the worktop to further enhance the clean lines and simple, uncluttered style. A dual-purpose, double-door butler’s pantry provides additional workspace for appliance storage (neatly stowed behind closed doors when not being utilised) alongside solid oak spice racks and pull out drawers. The kitchen itself is further served by a walk-in pantry and a separate laundry / boot room (both also designed and made by Rencraft) with oak seating, shoe storage and two double door wardrobes. The ideal place for the family dog to put his paws up after a long walk in the woods.

Our clients created a new glazed link between two parts of their home and wanted to relocate the kitchen within this space, integrating it with their existing dining area. It was important to them – and to us – that our design was in keeping with the period property, and the end result was magnificent fusion between old and new, creating a fluid link to the rest of their home. The large breakfast bar was finished in solid American walnut and incorporated a bespoke pop-up gin bar, another playful touch. This makes for a stunning showpiece, a surprising feature that acts as a real talking point.
