Our client’s property
Our client's property is a beautiful late Victorian townhouse. The house boasts a number of period details including original mosaic flooring, pitch pine doors and finishings as well as huge ceiling heights.
Our clients had spent considerable time researching ideas for their new kitchen. As this was going to be their 'house forever' they were diligent in their pursuit of selecting the best people for the project. Having looked at a few select providers, our clients commissioned David L Douglas to design and craft their new kitchen. The project involved the merging of two rooms, to make a large open plan kitchen dining area. The space had to work on a number of levels. Not only had the finished space to look stunning it also had to perform as a functional cooking space for the family.
Our clients have a great eye for detail and had a good idea of the style they were looking for. Working closely with our design team, a solution was created that maximised the space available with a clever layout.
The design of the furniture centres on traditional beaded inset frame cabinetry. The distressed shaker door style is hand-painted in Farrow and Ball Vert De Terre. Full height cabinetry (including top boxes) not only maximised space utilisation, but projects an elegant feature of the room.
The island forms the true focal piece of the kitchen. Designed in a free-standing style and crafted with a blend of solid distressed oak (with Patina finish) and hand-painted cabinetry, it truly is a stunning piece of furniture. It is made complete with a hand-crafted waney edge rustic oak breakfast worktop - the epitome of bespoke fitted furniture making.
Other key details of the project included a corner-sited cooker with rustic oak mantle beam. Double bevel edge River Valley Leather granite worktops were installed. A Shaws Classic double bowl sink with Perrin & Rowe Ionian mixer taps were also installed.
Our clients commented: "We did a lot of research before we commenced this project and we quickly realised that David L Douglas was the company to bring our ideas to reality."
They added: "From start to end it was a great experience. Costings were completely spot on, it all went to schedule and the team at David L Douglas communicated with our builders throughout the process."
