Recent install for the lovely Mr & Mrs Wilkie. Mr & Mrs Wilkie required a new kitchen to replace the old dark wood furniture installed 15yrs previous. A sharp design with bright lighting was required to give this dark North facing kitchen any hope at all, after all, they told us they need to use the main light, even on a summers day!
After an initial consultation, our designer had an idea that would work perfectly. Considering, all wood was requested, we had to devise a plan.
A mix of high gloss White from the Lacarre range and Elmwood from the Malton range, was the answer, quite frankly, the best of both worlds. We opted for the handleless range to give a more clean look. We knew the high gloss White wall units would reflect the little light available, allowing the door itself, to brighten the room using reflection. The Firbeck is the Matt version of the Lacarre for those who don't like high gloss. The base units, although darker, have a warm feel, and this is neutralised using a light colour floor and the stunning Aluminum Nube Silestone from the Celio Series, with its light Grey sheen and reflective sparkle. Our new discreet ceiling lights are a hit with all customers. They are a chalky White spot, with no visible bulb, giving off a super bright glow, using only 6 watts of power each. 8 in total were used, but they are fully dimmable.
The project ran very smooth and the transformation was amazing, falling well within the client's budget. We even managed a nook for the dog's cage!
