This apartment, in a grade 2 listed Victorian property, once belonged to a Sheffield Master Cutler (the ambassador for the trade guild of metalworkers based in Sheffield) and retains many original architectural features which the client was keen complement in the design of their new kitchen.
This property features stunning sash windows and a vaulted ceiling which made this a delightful project to work on. Blending new and old, the client wanted to retain their existing steel and glass dining table, chairs and soft furnishings, so our job was to create a kitchen that complemented both.
The traditional cabinet making methods give this property the detail and attention it deserves, alongside the granite and cool paint colours to give a clean and contemporary finish.
We introduced a large granite covered peninsula for food preparation and serving with useful practical storage below. The sink with its recessed granite drainer is installed with the latest instant boiling water tap to make this an easy kitchen to keep tidy – perfect for a busy household.
With modern steel German appliances, bespoke furniture and a cool grey finish, we were able to hide much of the bulk and capacity to make sure these stunning appliances didn’t take over the space. The room has limited light from a north facing window so we used Brazilian granite with a mellow while and grey fine crystal to reflect the light and add a touch of wow.
All these ingredients came together to make a perfect affordable recipe and a very happy client.
