Challenges

The primary challenge faced during this project was a large bulkhead intruding into the room. This bulkhead provided additional storage for an adjacent study but limited the planning height of one section of the kitchen.

To overcome this, custom height ‘midi’ units were designed, cleverly utilising the space to house the ovens. Adjacent to this was a simple but effective ‘niche’ for storing small appliances.

Design Solutions

1. Vienna Door Style

The Vienna door, with its simple bevelled shaker style, was chosen for its aesthetic appeal and ease of maintenance. The satin lacquer finish in Seashell White Satin contributed to the desired light and bright feel of the kitchen.

2. Quartz Worktops

To complement the satin doors, Cosentino’s Silestone Eternal Calacatta Gold quartz worktops were installed. This choice ensured durability and added a touch of luxury. The full-height quartz splashback, upstands, simple drainer grooves, and an undermounted sink were selected to maintain the clean, bright look while ensuring easy maintenance.

3. Innovative Appliance Solutions

The Neff vented hob was chosen over traditional hoods to provide superior extraction, reducing grease build-up and freeing up additional storage space above the hob. This design allowed for a clutter-free and functional kitchen environment.

4. Maximising Storage Efficiency

To address the client’s need for ample and convenient storage, several innovative solutions were incorporated:

  • Plenty of pan drawers were installed for easy access to cookware.
  • A Le-mans corner solution maximised corner storage, ensuring no space was wasted.
  • Custom ‘midi’ units provided additional storage space despite the constraints posed by the bulkhead.

Conclusion

The finished results transformed the client’s kitchen into a bright, functional, and low-maintenance space that met all their retirement needs. By addressing the spatial challenges creatively and incorporating high-quality materials and appliances, the project delivered a long-term investment that the client can enjoy for years to come.

Client Feedback

The client was highly satisfied with the outcome, particularly appreciating the light and bright atmosphere, the practical storage solutions, and the seamless integration of appliances. Their positive feedback and return for a second project underscore Danby Interiors’ commitment to excellence and customer satisfaction.

We can’t speak highly enough of Ian and his team at Danby. Ian guided us expertly and patiently through the process of designing our new kitchen and utility and choosing from the many fantastic products available through Danby. His knowledge and experience are second to none and he prompted us to consider so many aspects that wouldn’t have occurred to us without his help. Nothing was too much trouble, from our first showroom visit to the finishing touches of the installation. We are really pleased with our fabulous new kitchen. Thank you so much Ian, Sarah and Dave.

From start to finish, Danby Interiors have been fantastic. From Vicky sitting down with us to discuss what we wanted for our dressing room wardrobes, to the final product, I couldn't recommend Danby Interiors enough. Thank you again!

Absolutely perfect from first contact to final installation. Ian and his team supplied a bespoke storage unit cum wardrobe, tailor made to fit individual items of equipment and maximise the available space. The resultant design was just what was needed. The units were made on time as promised and fitted immediately afterm delivery. Everything went together perfectly, no snags or hitches. The finished unit is simply perfect. How wonderful to have had such a totally stress free experience from beginning to end. It is exactly how it should be but very rarely is. Well done to all at Danby. Congratulations.

Ian @ Danby designed and spec'd a new kitchen for us. He (very patiently!) helped us work through several iterations of our design whilst providing really constructive input. Joel, the kitchen fitter that he recommended to us, was top notch and the finish is to a very high standard. Our new kitchen certainly would not be what it is without his diligent efforts! I would recommend Danby to all.

Danby fitted out our Utility room with replacement kitchen units. They showed great flexibility, and a really friendly approach in finalising the design. The fitting (by Robin) was first class, and the associated trades e.g. tiling and plastering, were also excellent. Really pleased with everything.

I had various designs prepared before I got a recommendation to go and see Ian. His attention to detail and the excellence of his design was outstanding. In addition, our own kitchen fitter commented on the quality of the product and we are delighted with the finished kitchen.
