GASTRO KITCHENS

BURLANES Burlanes was called in to design and build a kitchen in a Sevenoaks new build. Working from a blank canvas meant we could create a wonderfully organised, functional and beautiful modern space. When embarking on a brand new kitchen for your newly-built home, it’s a good idea to call in the experts. A designer will help you to realise yours perfectly, and guide you where you absolutely should not cut corners. The first and most important step is to plan the layout in a way that makes the best use of the space. The kitchen is

the central point of your home, where a lot of activities take place – cooking, cleaning, eating, drinking and socialising. That’s why it needs to be both beautiful and functional. Regardless of the design style, organisation and layout are essential. This Sevenoaks family had a fabulous space to design and create their dream room. It includes all the must-haves and storage solutions they need to ensure their daily, busy family life runs smoothly. Prices start from £30,000 plus VAT. www.burlanes.com

STONEHAM KITCHENS For this kitchen, the space needed careful consideration, as it was part of a larger refurbishment of Mr and Mrs Kendle’s property. One wall was boarded to allow for an orangery at a later date, and an internal wall was reconfigured to create a walk-in larder and separate utility room. The couple wanted a light and contemporary space, while still keeping sympathetic to the style of the house. Stoneham Kitchens’ Penshurst painted furniture in latte, an off-white shade, was the ideal choice to meet the clients’ desire for a modern take on a classic design. This blended perfectly with granite worktops in river valley white. Beautiful curved door base units, curved wall units

and a curved, tall storage cupboard sweep throughout the kitchen and further enhance the look, creating a functional and stylish room. When it came to appliances, and as keen cooks, the owners requested two Miele ovens, hob, extractor, dishwasher and fridge/freezer. Some clever storage solutions were fitted for pans, chopping boards, wine bottles and other items for a practical and organised design. And to finish it off, a pop of colour in the form of an aubergine splashback provided a striking contrast to the kitchen’s neutral tones for a stunning, sophisticated look. Prices start at £25,000.
