Kitchen Makeover in the Heart of the Stroud Valleys

We were commissioned to re-vamp the tired oak cabinets in this Gloucestershire home; with stunning results.

It’s not always necessary to rip everything out and start again; if the cabinets are in good condition and you’re happy with the overall look and storage, a few simple changes can make all the difference, as our team proved.

All the painted cabinetry we create is hand finished by a local decorative artist, to the client’s specification. The owners of the property were invited to our showroom on the outskirts of Nailsworth to choose a colour, worktops in either wood or granite and those special, final touches such as taps and handles. The neutral shade of ‘Bone’ was selected from the Farrow & Ball range, to compliment the custom made, hand oiled, iroko worktops.

Elegant Ionian chrome taps from Perrin and Rowe worked perfectly with the Villeroy and Boch farmhouse sink and hammered pewter handles from the Dartington range.

We also designed a hand painted dresser for cookery books and a larder which incorporated spice racks and hand-woven wicker baskets, set within an oak frame.

By removing the old cooker we created the ideal space to integrate a new NEFF dishwasher; then, by tiling the fireplace and adding Premium Black Granite from the Bristol Marble Company around the traditional AGA we were able to ensure that all sections of the kitchen blended seamlessly together for an open, free-flowing, space.
