Project Description

Shaker Style German Kitchen – Adel, Leeds

SOFT GREY TONES CREATE AN ELEGANT OPEN PLAN DINING SPACE

German contemporary Shaker Kitchen

The clients first enquired about new worktops, flooring and appliances, for their French made old Arthur Bonnet kitchen, which was fitted by Danby interiors around twenty five years ago.

As requirements and lifestyle change over time, we asked if they were happy with everything else about the kitchen and it’s layout, before spending thousands to set an old kitchen in stone…

New Requirements

After further discussion, various issues arose, such as worktop space, the sink being close to edge of worktop, back door access, bins, storage volume, the microwave being too high and the extractor was not performing well.

In addition, the clients also realised that the conservatory was starting to fail and they needed a better utility and asked us to provide a design solution that could solve these problems in the current space, without extending the house.

Soon the project turned from a kitchen refurb, into a newly built garden room with back door access incorporated there, allowing the kitchen door to be blocked up, and the space used more effectively.

A new window with the sill lowered to cabinet height, meant the worktop could run into the window frame, improving visibility to the garden and eliminating the tight space between sink, tap and wall behind them.

Half of the garage was converted to a more comprehensive utility room, with new access being gained from a little used front room.

The resulting German made Häcker Systemat kitchen was nicely set off by an Amtico floor and some good lighting.

The finished results are shown below.
