WELCOME A new kitchen or bathroom is one of the biggest improvements any of us will make. The kitchen is the heart of the home, the room where we eat our meals and update our Facebook statuses as well as cooking and storing food. It has to look fantastic as well as functioning efficiently. The bathroom is our sanctuary and spa, for relaxing and dreaming as well as cleansing, toning and exfoliating. Which is why it’s so important to get both of these rooms right. An expert with years of experience in trouble-shooting and project management can solve problems which, to the amateur struggling with trade catalogues and graph paper, seem insurmountable. To get you started, we have gathered all the experts you need here. So what’s stopping you?

WHAT’S THE STORY? Today’s open-plan kitchen-living rooms are perfectly suited to family life – just as they have always been Words: Judy Diamond

E

ver since our ancestors first huddled together around the fire in their cave, gnawing on a haunch of bison or woolly mammoth, the concept of sharing a meal at the end of the day has been part of the human story. Companionship, warmth, the appetising smell of something good wafting from the cooking pot: all are deep and ancient needs. It’s no wonder the kitchen is still the heart of the home today. The Neolithic inhabitants of Skara Brae on Orkney, which was built before Egypt’s pyramids, knew this: their cosy, single-room dwellings were essentially just kitchens, with stone larders, storage boxes and beds, all arranged around a central cooking pot over the fire. Most kitchen designers employ similar principles today, updating the fire with an island hob and swapping the bed for a bar-stool or two.

house, if you lived in a single-end), the kitchen wasn’t just a place to cook and eat, it was also a bedroom (many had a bed recess), a parlour and even the place you’d take your weekly bath. By the middle of the 20th century sophisticated houses boasted a separate kitchen, dining room and sitting room, keeping the chaos of dirty dishes and potato peelings away from the public spaces. Our grandparents wouldn’t have dreamt of allowing guests a glimpse of the main course before it was delivered, via the hostess trolley, to the dining table. Nowadays, whether we realise it or not, we are much more in tune with our caveman ancestors’ domestic arrangements by returning to open-plan living. Today’s hunter-gatherer brings in the shopping bags and rustles up supper surrounded by the rest of the family – kids playing in the corner, teens bent over homework, partner mixing a G&T and sharing the day’s events. This remains the model even when friends come round to dinner. No one wants to be stuck alone at the stove while the party happens in another room. In our less formal times we like nothing better than sipping a glass of wine with our guests looking on as we stir risotto or simmer a casserole.

Today’s huntergatherer brings in the shopping and rustles up supper surrounded by the rest of the family”

Upstairs, downstairs As civilisation developed, a split between rich and poor households emerged. Those with sufficient space and wealth gave the messy business of preparing and cooking food over to the servants, leaving them in basement kitchens and migrating upwards to the rarefied air of the dining room and the drawing room. For the rest, in farm cottages and tenements, all the living was done in the warm, convivial kitchen where the coal or wood-fired range functioned as hob, oven, boiler and clothes-drier. As the warmest room in the house (the only room in the 6

and Double Vertigo by Best could be mistaken for beautiful light fittings. Even less obtrusive are the new downdrafts, pop-up extractors that stay neatly hidden below the worktop when not in use. In the reimagined open-plan kitchen of today, several appliances have vanished. The washing machine and tumble drier have been banished to the utility room, itself possibly created from the space vacated by the larder, made obsolete by the fridge freezer. Most open-plan kitchens are constructed around an island which, as well as being an efficient workstation in which to contain appliances, can act as a focal point, setting the tone for the rest of the room. Surrounded by bar stools, it’s the natural place to gravitate to – and it serves as a stage for more theatrical home chefs. A design for life As the boundaries between dining, living and cooking have broken down, some kitchens no longer really look like kitchens any more, as Gillian McCollum of Fifebased kitchen specialists Murray & Murray explains: “Not only are we seeing a move towards open-plan living but more and more we are being asked to conceal the functional components of the kitchen behind sliding, pocket and bi-folding doors to give a sleeker appearance.” That’s a trend that Shona Ponder, design director at Kelso’s Countryside Kitchens, has also noticed: “With openplan living, people naturally want to have less on display. We’re often asked to build individual niches for the toaster, the coffee maker and so on that can then be neatly

hidden from view behind sliding doors.” If cooking is your passion, the design should prioritise functionality. Go for hard-wearing surfaces that are easy to clean and semi-professional appliances that will be a match for your talents. If you see yourself more as a host, a stylish room with plenty of areas to sit and chat or stand and mingle will matter more. It is possible, of course, to combine the two – in fact, it’s the ideal solution.

Ultra-modern kitchens such as this one from awardwinning kitchen studio Development Direct keep appliances and utensils well out of sight. The result is pared-back minimalism that allows the space to be used for more than just cooking and eating – very different from the purpose of the earlier model below left

How long should a kitchen last? And how much should I pay?

A

nyone contemplating a new kitchen has a thousand decisions to make. What style should I go for? Should I keep the old layout or try something more practical? Should we knock this wall down and make it open-plan? How long can I expect my new kitchen to last – and how much should I pay for it? Of all the rooms in the house, the kitchen gets the most wear and tear. It’s also the room most of us spend the majority of our time in. So building something hard-wearing and practical is essential – but it has to be an attractive, pleasant environment too. Bucking the trends Back in the 1950s and ’60s a fitted kitchen, where everything matched and Formica ruled, was the only option. Then came the country kitchen of the 1970s: chunky orange pine, Austrian blinds and an Aga. Metallic and hard-edged, the industrial kitchen followed in the ’80s and early-’90s, a professional-standard Rangemaster six-burner hob taking pride of place. It was all change in the late-1990s and early 2000s. “Ten years ago everything was so ornate,” says Shona Ponder, design director at Countryside Kitchens. “We saw a lot of carved wood and canopies, and buyers had little choice if

they wanted anything less elaborate.” These days we can mix and match, using a combination of fitted and freestanding units to create the look we want. There has never been a bigger choice of styles, materials, gadgets and finishes, and getting the right blend for your home is crucial. Keep a low profile Low-profile, minimalist designs are very popular just now: “I expect the more minimalist look to remain a key trend in 2013 – we have a huge array of handleless units as well as linear designs,” says Kieron Bell of Kitchens International. “Even in traditional kitchens, the look will be a combination of painted and timber finishes that avoid being over-fussy.” Some of the old default choices such as stainless steel may dip in popularity too, says Gillian McCollum at Murray & Murray: “We’re seeing tap manufacturers offering alternative black and bronze finishes that are complemented by light switches, sockets etc. Polished stone worktops are being replaced with leathered finishes which offer a more raw and natural texture.” Shona Ponder has noticed another trend that’s making kitchen units look less obviously kitcheny: “Some designers are removing the plinth you normally get at

the base of a unit so the door or drawer goes right down to the floor – it makes it look like a piece of hand-made furniture more suited to open-plan living.” Kieron Bell’s biggest predictions are for more glass and more colour – at least in specific areas: “As lighter, open-plan designs evolve, glass will play a major role, in splashbacks and even worktops or doors. As for colour, I see accented units in certain areas, combined with greys, whites and blacks and finished in silk rather than gloss so the effect isn’t overpowering.” Worth it in the end Spend as much as you can afford seems to be the best advice – it will give you something functional and beautiful that will withstand wear and tear. “Replacing a kitchen is an upheaval and an inconvenience, so it’s important to invest in well-made cabinetry that will stand the test of time,” advises Gillian McCollum. “Generally, the less ornamentation you have, the less likely it is to date. If you spend time getting the layout and functionality right at the start, you can update your kitchen very easily by painting, replacing handles and even worktops should you need to.” Shona Ponder agrees: “Go for quality – it won’t let you down.” KITCHENS & BATHROOMS

PROFILE

CALLERTON is celebrating thirty years of manufacturing exciting and innovative kitchens. From its factory in Sunderland, it specialises in supplying the furniture element of a kitchen project to an extensive network of design-led specialist retailers across Britain. All sorts of people choose Callerton when they buy a new kitchen, but the typical client tends to be someone who appreciates the three vital elements required to produce a dream kitchen: first-class innovative design; quality products and components; and skilled installation staff and project management. Callerton knows the importance of giving customers what they want. “Great designers will aim to satisfy the specific needs and requirements of the client, not suit their own personal preference, and they will always aim to surpass the client’s aspirations,” says managing director James Herriot. Over the past three decades Callerton has developed an extremely broad and extensive product range. This falls roughly

(Right) This more traditionallooking Deco kitchen is nevertheless just as up to date when it comes to quality, and its classic contemporary style has a timeless appeal that adds real value to a home

into three categories: traditional, hightech and that all-important in-between area, classic contemporary. The two kitchens pictured above are great examples of just how wide the company’s range is. The main image above is of an ultra-modern hightech option from the Geo-Metric collection, incorporating lots of gloss and cocobolo wood. The one below it, in contrast, is a little more traditional. It is part of the Deco range, a collection of classic contemporary designs in walnut and painted wood. Both share the same very high standard of build and finish. Kitchens today are as much about design flair as they are about form and function. In other words, making a statement and practicality go hand in hand – Callerton’s recognition of this and use of it as a guiding principal in producing stunning kitchens for a discerning clientele is the company’s

unique selling point. As kitchens have become ever more complex in design and the projectmanagement skills necessary to ensure a successful result, it makes sense to enlist the help of a specialist – and that’s exactly what Callerton’s network of retailers can offer. Top tip: Spend as much time as necessary to be absolutely certain that the design of your new kitchen will truly meet all your requirements and desires before the installation process gets under way – the cost of making alterations on site (or, worse, after the job is complete) is likely to be substantial.

“A programme of works will give the fastest, smoothest installation process possible”

This coolly curving peninsula of units fulfils two important functions: it creates just enough of a divide in the open-plan living space, and it acts as a substitute island – there wasn’t enough room to add a freestanding one. The curve is echoed in the circular dining table, harmonising the whole space

CALLUM WALKER INTERIORS

is an independent family-run firm that was established over 40 years ago, specialising in the design, supply and installation of bespoke interiors for every area of the home. A substantial proportion of its projects come from recommendations made by past clients, or from existing clients who want more work done elsewhere in their homes. Callum Walker is known for producing stunning designs in both traditional and contemporary styles, but it is the company’s ability to create a ‘cross over’ kitchen which borrows elements from both styles that gives its designs such a distinctive look. The company’s designers are well

equipped to take on all sorts of projects, in both period and contemporary homes. One recent commission, in an Edwardian country house, required a traditional touch: the designer utilised subtle moulding detail to the doors in a burr oak which injected warmth and character. An Aga provided the cooking centrepiece, which was framed with a furniture mantle that added height so it felt more in proportion with the high ceilings in the room. Additional appliances were concealed wherever possible. A large central island provided space for preparation and socialising. In contrast take something altogether more modern such as a penthouse kitchen. Here the company designer can work with gloss-white doors, and walnut elements which complement flooring and client’s furniture. Ease of access is important, so wherever possible cabinetry can be made up of pull-outs and clever storage. If there isn’t enough space for a central island a peninsular unit can be

added to create a divider in the open-plan living space. Callum Walker Interiors prides itself on providing the highest level of service. Part of this is showing entire kitchens in a room setting within its studio, with fully operational appliances that let clients experience products at first hand. An in-house home economist assists with appliance selection, giving one-to-one demonstrations in the studio as well as a full demonstration of new appliances in the client’s home once the installation is complete. Callum Walker Interiors offers a ‘turnkey’ service so the client doesn’t have to deal with scheduling or overseeing the quality of the work. As a specialist, the company is used to compiling a programme of works which is geared to the fastest, smoothest installation process possible, using trusted tradesmen who have worked with the firm for many years, covering everything from building work to fabric finishes.

“Experience is valued here – it’s what makes the company what it is” This dramatically different kitchen uses a combination of stainless-steel work surfaces and large, free-standing cabinets to create its singular appearance. The cabinets, in a rich walnut veneer, open to reveal all the workings of a kitchen – yet close to completely transform the room

CAMERON INTERIORS offers a superior service designing and supplying high-quality kitchens, bedrooms and living spaces. This service includes everything from design and installation to management of the project to keep it under control from beginning to end. Discerning customers with an eye for innovative design and a desire for functionality are attracted by Cameron’s ethos, as are people looking for a personal service. Many clients come as a result of recommendations from previous customers. The company has a close relationship with Bulthaup, the renowned German kitchen manufacturer, selling its very highspecification units and cabinets. Muted but striking colour schemes combined with timelessly elegant fixtures and fittings are a hallmark of the brand. The firm’s designers can adapt to any brief. They have fitted extremely compact kitchens in the typical Glasgow tenement scullery/bed recess in a very

functional and ergonomic way. Equally, they are just as happy to tackle very large open spaces in period properties, recently completing a top-end hotel development in Atholl Crescent in Edinburgh’s west end. The Atholl’s butlered apartments have been equipped with high-spec, incredibly beautiful, bespoke Bulthaup kitchens with separate wine and cheese areas. A lot of kitchen products look the business but don’t have the quality behind them. That could never be said about Bulthaup: they design, engineer and manufacture most of the elements that go into its kitchens itself or else works only with suppliers which can meet its exceptional standards. Cameron Interiors is all about people; it’s a small business and a small team. Some of its subcontractors started with the company when they were apprentices and now they’re grey-haired! They are trained regularly in Germany which helps to set them above the competition – it’s not unknown for clients, having moved house, to come back for their second or third kitchen and ask for a particular fitter. Experience is valued here – it’s what makes the company what it is. Anyone who is tempted to try to

design and install a kitchen themselves will be missing out on the years of experience and knowledge held by Cameron’s designers. They really think through every aspect of a project, taking clients through the entire process from start to finish and allowing them to be as hands-on or as hands-off as they prefer. Top tip: Keep it simple! Choose bright colours and finishes for areas that can be updated easily and regularly when tastes change – as inevitably happens.

CLIVE CHRISTIAN creates ‘British luxury interiors’ with a timeless appeal, using care and diligence to ensure its customers will enjoy their kitchen for decades to come. The Andersons, a Glasgow couple, discovered this for themselves when they decided it was time to replace their kitchen: “We had moved into a beautiful property and wanted to get rid of the frankly awful kitchen that the developer had put in and replace it with something that suited the period property. We requested a Clive Christian brochure which arrived the

very next day and showed the breadth of designs available. This confirmed our interest so we phoned the showroom to arrange for a designer to come and have a look at our kitchen. The gentleman who arrived was efficient and courteous and took a detailed brief from us. We were pretty sure of what we wanted.” David Harrison, the designer in question, wasn’t so convinced. “We do more listening than talking in our initial conversations – we want to get a feel for the customer and their likes and dislikes. At the Andersons’ house I could see immediately that the style of kitchen did not suit the property. It was too modern and quirky and the workspace was compromised – I could see why they wanted to get rid of it, but I wasn’t sure their alternative would

work. A kitchen must not only look great, it also has to work in practical terms. When this kitchen layout hit the drawing board it quickly became clear that it was unworkable. The existing infrastructure was a constraint to what was possible. So I started with a completely blank canvas and created a layout that increased the workspace and gave beautiful aesthetics.” David knew that this radically different layout was a risk. “They enjoyed eating at the window and I had moved the dining area away from it, and I’d covered the presses which were a traditional feature. But I was convinced it was the best layout for the room – whether the Andersons would agree was less certain!’ The couple received a phone call from David asking them to come to

the showroom to see his proposed design and get a feel for the product in situ. “We were bowled over by the showroom – it was beautifully designed and carefully crafted and it showed us that Clive Christian could deliver what we needed,” says Mrs Anderson. “We enjoyed a great cup of coffee and felt very welcome, and with hindsight I believe this trip was crucial in our decision to go with the company.” And what about the design? “We were presented with a plan that was not at all what we were expecting, and initially we were quite shocked by some of the changes, such as moving the dining area away from the window. But David carefully explained his thinking behind it and the process that had got him there. That really did convince us to go with Clive Christian – it showed that they had truly thought through how we would live and work in the room. As well as the plan, we were shown a beautiful artist’s impression of the room which had been done by hand. This was a nice personal touch and was very different to presentations

we’d had from other companies. The price was higher than we’d anticipated, but it wasn’t beyond the realms of possibility, so we worked with David to change a few details to bring us back closer to our budget.” An order was placed shortly after this presentation and David admits he felt relieved: “Not every client greets your boldness with an open mind, so it was great to see our experience being valued.” The installation team swung into action to bring the room together, a smooth process with only a couple of “small hiccups” that were dealt with efficiently and without fuss. Issues along the way are to be expected in an older property, says David. “We don’t hide this, but we do expect to deal with these quickly and fairly. We always try to put ourselves in our client’s shoes.” The Andersons are “delighted with the room. It has given us even more than we set out to achieve – it is a wonderful social space as well as being a functional kitchen and eating area. And the dogs are as pleased with the new Aga as we are!”

Luxury and old-fashioned craftsmanship are at the heart of a Clive Christian design, as the Andersons’ kitchen demonstrates. The cabinets are built to last, the finishes are exquisite and the clever, thoughtful layout ensures it will stand the test of time

CROSBY’s history stretches back

to the 1930s, since when the business has grown steadily to become a major supplier of kitchens to the retail market. Its designs are available in many independent kitchen showrooms throughout the UK, but it also has its own incredible showroom in Aberdeen, opened in 2006 and completely refitted in 2011, which is well worth checking out for a chance to see the whole range of Crosby’s products. Renowned for its total commitment to quality and offering ‘the best of British’, Crosby attracts clients who are looking for excellent value, not just the cheapest price. The company specialises in ‘proper design’, which it uses to create the best possible kitchen for each individual customer, ensuring that it suits both their space and their lifestyle. That’s why it’s best to let the person who really uses the kitchen to lead the discussions with the designer – you’ll end up with a kitchen that really works for your home! Some people find all the decisionmaking around a new kitchen very stressful. That’s why the people at Crosby go out of their way to offer a warm and friendly atmosphere.

The design team has a close working relationship with the fitting team, which goes a long way to ensuring an excellent translation of the client’s wishes, and smooth and efficient kitchen installations. Years of experience make it easy to build and install a first-class finished kitchen in minimal time – far better than fitting it yourself. Using Crosby you get: • A professional finish which lasts longer • Guarantees on all work • Quality control through a fully ‘reference checked’ fitting team, guaranteeing standards • The company reputation is on the line at every installation. It won’t take risks with that! Top tip: If your new kitchen is part of an extension, design and budget for your kitchen first, then ringfence it: don’t let the builder eat into the kitchen budget for other things or you’ll be disappointed with the end result.

customer satisfaction and the assurance that their dream kitchen is achievable.” As a company, David L Douglas prides itself on its flexibility. It has no signature style and is not tied to any specific ranges of kitchens or appliances. Instead, ever y project is hand-made to the customer’s specification and to suit their individual lifestyle. The company’s work is as varied as its many individual customers. For example, they have made and installed a Victorian-style kitchen with raised and fielded panels, Edwardian,

Georgian and Shaker-style kitchens, as well as more contemporary styles. Everything is hand made in Scotland, in David L Douglas’s own family-run workshops.

“We will look at how the whole house works rather than just considering an individual room”

With over 20 years’ experience to call upon, Design Studio Ayr can tackle projects of all shapes, styles and sizes. From an apartment refurbishment within a listed country estate that combined contemporary and traditional elements, to the redesign of 1960s bungalow into clean, modern villa. Specialising in interior architecture, extensions, kitchen architecture, refurbishments, bedrooms, bathrooms, lifestyle rooms (which includes lighting systems, home automation and sound and vision), the committed and professional team, from its small and welcoming Ayr-based studio, will work

to deliver a first-class customer service from beginning to end. Every aspect of the design and build process is covered, from concept plans, layouts and building warrants to mood boards, CAD drawings and project management. The team take pride in their work (and have earned countless glowing referrals and client testimonials), and are particularly skilled in the design and delivery of large kitchen and family lifestyle rooms. Complex challenges, such as rooms where walls need to be removed and the layout completely remodelled, are welcomed. Every detail of the job will be scrutinised, and whatever work is carried out will harmonise with the existing architecture of the property, whether old or new. “A lot of companies just add an extension without sparing a second thought for the original home,” says managing

director Phil Durkin. “We’ll look at how the whole house works, rather than just considering an individual room.” The company’s expert in-house trades people take the stress out of a project. “We offer a complete turnkey service from concept to completion. We will submit proposals to the client prior to them having to go to an architect. We employ all own main trades, including builders, joiners and electricians, so the job is fully coordinated” Top tip: Steelwork – the company spends more on steel than anything, but this allows its designers to open up areas and create jaw-dropping rooms – a part of construction that clients often think is out of their reach.

Origin bi-folding doors are made in the UK to the highest standards, surpassing the requirements of British building regulations and coming with a 20-year guarantee as standard. In the patio above, the installation of the doors has opened up the whole house and effectively created a new room

ORIGIN was founded 11 years ago when cousins Neil Ginger and Victoria Brocklesby found they could not get great aluminium folding sliding doors for their building projects. Their ambitious solution was to create a company capable of manufacturing the UK’s best quality doors, backed by uncompromising levels of service. The result is a range of cleverly designed, beautifully made and exquisitely finished sliding folding doors. These are available in a multitude of configurations and a huge variety of powder-coated colours, allowing buyers to create a totally integrated and unique look in their homes. The doors are finished with policeaccredited locking systems for ultimate security and have a superior thermal

efficiency rating which surpasses British building regulations. They also come with the solid reassurance of a 20-year guarantee. Origin now also manufactures the ultimate accompaniment to its bi-fold doors – bespoke blinds available in a range of colours and fabrics. You don’t need a big property to feel the benefit of bi-folding doors. They can transform any home, whether it is an urban semi, a modern extension or an old-fashioned farmhouse. Nothing else releases the potential of a home, and the space around it, quite like individually crafted bi-folding doors. So whether you want your doors to match the rest of the house on the outside, but be a bit more adventurous on the inside, the choice is yours. Origin prides itself on delivering a service which is above and beyond the customer’s expectation. Its strapline is ‘elegance without compromise’ – it doesn’t make any compromise in the customer service, manufacture or delivery of the product. The doors are

crafted in the UK to the highest standard, with expert help and advice from a UK customer service team. Origin doesn’t believe that one size fits all – the doors are manufactured to the exact specification of the homeowner, whatever the colour, whatever the size. Be aware that installing bi-folding doors is not a DIY job. They require technical expertise to ensure they’ll work effectively and efficiently for years to come. Origin works with a network of accredited installers, including Scottishbased Ekco Kitchens (www.ekco.co.uk), which is the perfect partner for creating an enviable new kitchen to be the heart of a home. By working with experts, you can ensure you get the best configuration of doors for your home, opening your eyes to the fantastic possibilities. Top tip: Installing bi-folding doors creates a wonderful focal point, bringing light flooding into a home – so much so that they have been known to increase the property value and have fast become the most popular form of home improvement.

PROFILE

Harvey Jones manufactures kitchens of the highest quality. Its popular Shaker-style kitchen (above) is made using a traditional framed construction method and painted to the client’s precise specification. The elegant Linear kitchen (below) has a minimalist look, thanks to its concealed hinges

HARVEY JONES has been manufacturing kitchens for over 30 years, specialising in hand-made and hand-painted kitchens with cabinetry made to the highest standard. Every Harvey Jones kitchen is manufactured using a traditional framed construction method, with hardwood doors that are secured with butt hinges to hardwood frames. Each cabinet is produced with a solid top and back, then tongued and grooved and both screwed and pressure-glued to create a completely rigid, square and durable cube structure. This traditional process, using highly experienced and skilled cabinetmakers, is one of the company’s unique selling points and has contributed to its reputation for the highest quality work. Colour is also another unique selling point – all Harvey Jones kitchens are delivered having been primed with two coats of tough white undercoat which can then be painted in any colour, multiple colours or even finished with a bespoke pattern.

The company’s Shaker-style kitchen is currently the most popular range (see above, where a large worktop has been designed to be used simultaneously as a breakfast bar), closely followed by its Linear kitchen – a contemporary range with a more minimalist finish. The U-shaped Linear kitchen pictured below was designed with space-saving in mind. Cabinetry has been built to incorporate appliances such as the microwave to provide a clutter-free workspace. In both cases, the cabinetry forms a blank canvas that can be hand-painted in absolutely any colour or pattern. Oak or walnut timber doors are also available. Customisation is at the heart of the company’s design proposition, with further flexibility of choice when it comes to storage units and features, handles, worktops and appliances. Designing and fitting your own kitchen is a complex process. Choosing an experienced kitchen manufacturer allows you to take advantage of inhouse designers who will guide you through the entire journey, ensuring a kitchen built to your exact specification. Do you want the kitchen to play a purely practical role or do you want it to be a place in which to relax and socialise? Do you have enough room for an island or would a more

compact formation work best? Thinking about these crucial points will be the first step in creating a kitchen that will work for you and your household. The design team at Harvey Jones knows that no two customers or briefs are the same, and are happy to devise completely individual solutions to meet the client’s wishes. Long experience means they are equipped to take on diverse projects ranging from complete refurbishments to precise solutions for small spaces.

“Use a variety of textures and layers to create depth and curiosity in your kitchen concept”

A pleasing combination of white lacquer and modern wood veneers make these undisputably modern kitchens. The contrasts work because of a clever use of scale, skilful lighting and a focus on high spec materials.

KITCHENS BY JS GEDDES opened its flagship studio in Kilmarnock 29 years ago, with a second showroom opening in Symington in 2010. The company has exclusivity in Scotland on many products from the prestigious Poggenpohl Series range to the uniquely designed Jette kitchen. It also offers its own JS Geddes Collection in a range of colours and finishes which are manufactured to its own design and specification. Although happy to take on board the current market trends, the team at JS Geddes know that this is a unique company with unique ideas and that is reflected in their designs. Clients with a love of good design who want an individual kitchen that reflects their lifestyle and personality appreciate this. Independently owned and with three decades of experience in kitchen design, the company has won the UK Kitchen Retailer of the Year in 2012, 2004 and 1994, as well

as many other design and business excellence awards. These prizes are recognition of an exceptional passion for design and a superb quality of workmanship. The team have achieved success due to their attention to detail, and every member is focused on reaching the exacting standards required to keep the company at the pinnacle of this very competitive industry. Every customer benefits from this, experiencing the same meticulous level of care, and every project is overseen from start to finish. “Our skill is transforming blank spaces into stylish, well-designed and practical kitchens,” says installation director Michael O’Hare. “We ask our clients searching questions about how they live and how they intend to use the space so that it will complement their lifestyle. Clients may have an idea about how they might like a kitchen to look, but they don’t have the time or experience to achieve their ideas. We are sourcing products and materials which are unique to the Scottish market and are therefore able to create a unique kitchen for each client.” JS Geddes is able to provide the

style, aesthetics and functionality that a kitchen needs, as well as presenting wonderful ‘outside the box’ ideas and concepts that will surprise and excite – using the most cutting-edge products available. JS Geddes’s passion is design and as such it works with most of the great iconic kitchen brands. Its philosophy is very much about unique kitchen concepts for each individual client, complemented with detailed surveys for each project, professional installation and a superb aftercare service. Traditional values of attention to detail, customer care and old-fashioned craftsmanship are married to modern materials, contemporary styling and the very latest technology to create utterly unique kitchens. The kitchens above encapsulate the JS Geddes ethos with its contemporary mix of sharp white lacquer and warm wood creating something of a timeless classic. Top tip: Use a variety of textures and layers as part of the overall kitchen design to add depth and curiosity to the concept. And whatever you do, think outside the box! No two kitchens should ever be the same.

“We are as passionate about the design as we are about the installation” Kitchens International’s own training academy ensures its designers and installers are ready to take on projects of any size or specification. This one, in a period home in Edinburgh, has been given a contemporary slant thanks to rich wood veneers and sharp white Corian work surfaces

KITCHENS INTERNATIONAL is the UK’s largest independent, luxury kitchen retailer, with six showrooms across the country. Established in 1994, the company has grown to create an unrivalled award-winning reputation as one of the UK’s most respected kitchen specialists. The company employs over 70 professional members of staff, ranging from designers, installers and projects managers right through to clientspecific project co-ordinators. A company training academy provides apprenticeships and staff development programmes, ensuring the very highest of standards of service. As an independent company, Kitchens International is in a position to offer the country’s most comprehensive collection of kitchen products and has partnering relationships with producers such as Poggenpohl, Stoneham, Mowlem & Co, Leicht, RW Kuhlman, Callerton, V-Zug, Siemens, Gaggenau, Quooker and Kohler.

Kitchens International’s reputation has been built on total customer care from the moment the client walks into the showroom until the kitchen is completely fitted. Customer care is loosely used by others but rarely backed with the investment and belief to make it happen. As one of the very few kitchen companies to employ all the staff required for designing and fitting kitchens, Kitchens International is as passionate about the design as the minutiae of installation. Its team works very closely together to ensure that clients are entirely satisfied with the whole process. Endorsement of this service is plain to see by the huge number of referrals from past clients and this is the principle upon which the company has been built. With every kitchen bespoke to the user, Kitchens International, as a completely independent company, can adapt to whatever is required. The only thing that stays the same is the high level of customer service throughout the process and extreme attention to detail. Having worked with most of Scotland’s top chefs both professionally and creating their own kitchens, Kitchens International has an expert knowledge of professional cooking. Andrew Fairlie, Nick Nairn and Martin Wishart, who all have KI kitchens,

are, among others, an endorsement of the KI brand. Whether creating a kitchen in a large house where the design must flow into the surrounding rooms or designing a contemporary city-centre apartment, the KI team is at home in any environment. The kitchen above, in an Edinburgh period property, gives a contemporary slant to an old home with wood veneer, complemented by white Corian work surfaces. Combining modern technology with traditional, friendly values, nothing is too big or too small or too much or too little for the KI team. Given that most people spend the majority of their time at home in the kitchen, a new kitchen can be one of the most important purchases ever. By getting the best designers, project managers and installers to create your kitchen will ensure you have the room that you will love forever. Top tips: Your kitchen is only ever as good as those who install it. However stylish and creative the design is, it can be ruined by shoddy workmanship, so ensure the installers are as good as the designers. And use colour as an accent rather than for the whole kitchen as feature walls and textures can be easily changed in years to come.

KUTCHENHAUS is part of Nobilia, Germany’s largest manufacturer of rigid, pre-built bespoke kitchens, with a great reputation for quality across Europe. It has two impressive showrooms in Scotland, at Braehead in Glasgow and Union Square in the heart of Aberdeen. Both have over 30 kitchens on display, showcasing a huge variety of styles from the ultracontemporary to the beautifully traditional. All the kitchens on offer are highquality rigid factory-built units, delivered as a complete package ready to install. These clean, modern styles with industry-leading innovations in both materials and storage solutions are growing in popularity Because Kutchenhaus is owned by

Nobilia, it has a direct line to the factory – cutting out the middlemen means there are big savings to be passed on to customers. It’s no wonder that the company is best known for selling ‘high-quality German kitchens at surprisingly low prices’. A galleystyle kitchen from Kutchenhaus will start at around £6000, but there is plenty to satisfy the customer for whom price is not the primary consideration. Bespoke kitchens built specifically for an individual client will always make better use of the available space, which is why Kutchenhaus has bright, inventive designers on hand to help. Trained in Germany to design in the best, most effective and most economical way, they will ensure that the layout of your room is as good as it can be.

German engineered products are famous around the world for their quality – and Kutchenhaus German kitchens are no different. Rigid factory units, built of durable materials and equipped with the latest innovations, work hard behind the scenes

And because Kutchenhaus furniture is so stylish and efficient, it can be used for much more than just the kitchen – it works brilliantly in a dining area, media centre or home office, all beautifully integrated for a stunning effect. So are German kitchens better than their counterparts from elsewhere in the world? Well, German cabinets are certainly a different size to British ones, coming in 300, 600, 900 and 1200mm widths. This actually allows for better design and gives a better flow through the room.

No other room needs to cater to your individual needs more than the kitchen. Living For Style offers unlimited choice to create the perfect kitchen: one that is as unique as you are

ESTABLISHED IN 1986, Living For Style marked its 25th anniversary in October 2011. To celebrate, both studios hosted cookery demonstrations by Jackie O’Donnell and Phil Lewis. Their Posh Afternoon Teas were enjoyed by everyone, with all cakes baked in the studios. While these events were not too good for the waistline they will continue into 2013 – watch this space. With three prestigious furniture suppliers – Poggenpohl, RWK and Callerton – Living For Style has the palette to specialise in all areas of kitchen design whether it be modern, contemporary or traditional. Together with major appliance brands Miele, Wolf, Sub Zero, Siemens and Neff, Living For Style is able to offer a package that fits the design criteria and also the budget. The company’s type of client is someone who wants individual designs, good quality and value for

money. Ideally they wish to build up a relationship with the company and their designer prior to purchase. Living For Style operates the KBSA’s deposit protection scheme to ensure all clients have the “feel-good factor when they purchase”. The designers are also responsible for all aspects of the project from initial design to satisfactory completion. Living For Style’s designs tend to be unique to the client and trends are constantly changing within this industry. Callerton’s Deco is undoubtedly a favourite for a contemporary kitchen and Poggenpohl’s +Segmento and Integration continue to theme many modern kitchens. One of the company’s more challenging jobs was, what it calls, “the Harry Potter kitchen”: a converted cupboard under the stairs within a townhouse conversion in Dowanhill. This flat had an extremely grand front room but no kitchen. Living For Style’s designers made one with all the required appliances in one of the tiniest spaces imaginable. At the other end of the spectrum the company is presently working on various projects where it is actually challenging to fill the space provided.

These new builds require an early involvement with either the client or the developer. It’s all about the detail. The most successful jobs are the ones where the client and the designer are singing from the same hymn sheet and have an identical perception of the completed project. The entire process should then be effortless and enjoyable, plus the end result will be stunning. Living For Style makes sure the layout suits the proportions of the room, and imagines how the kitchen will look in 10 years’ time.

Renowned chef Jackie O’Donnell hosts one of the cookery demonstrations which attracts lots of interest. More will follow in 2013

PROFILE

“All its kitchens share the same attention to skilful touches” This super-slick kitchen takes minimalism to a stylish extreme, hiding crockery, condiments and clutter behind a system of sliding doors. Even the appliances are largely disguised, making this a room that is as well suited to entertaining as it is to cooking or washing up

MURRAY & MURRAY was

founded in Auchtermuchty in the summer of 1989, relocating to Glenrothes in 2004. Right from the very beginning, the company aimed to design, manufacture and install beautiful, stylish kitchens and furniture, and this is still its speciality today. Discerning customers come from all over the UK, attracted by Murray & Murray’s reputation for originality in design, exceptional quality of craftsmanship and excellent customer service. It is one of the very few companies which can offer a truly bespoke service where every piece of furniture is individually crafted to order and to the customer’s exact specifications. An on-site workshop is an added bonus, allowing clients to visit and see their furniture being built. Although the company’s roots are

firmly in the traditional country style, in recent years it has developed a more contemporary portfolio of projects thanks to the significant investment in a state-of-the-art veneer press and inhouse spray-painting facilities. Because the firm offers a truly bespoke product, it doesn’t restrict itself to a particular house style, but all its kitchens share the same attention to detail, fine workmanship and skilful touches. This means its designers are just as comfortable putting together a Georgian-style kitchen for a Scottish castle as they are coming up with a kitchen that can be completely concealed behind a system of sliding doors for a contemporary city apartment. The team’s knowledge and experience, built up over the past 23 years, means Murray & Murray can offer its customers very valuable advice, spotting pitfalls before they happen and helping them to avoid the kind of costly and difficult-to-fix mistakes that often arise when attempting to install a kitchen yourself. Top tip: “Don’t compromise on your kitchen tap – it’s the one of the most heavily used items in your house.”

In the two kitchens above, display storage is an attractive feature but in neither case does it detract from the clear expanse of uncluttered work surfaces

SCULLERIES of STOCKBRIDGE A stunning extension on a period property in Dunfermline needed a kitchen that could do justice to its generously grand proportions Words: Fiona Reid

Period houses were never designed to make a feature of the kitchen.These were rooms to be tucked away, usually in the darkest corner of the house (the cold north-east corner if possible, in those pre-refrigeration days), which explains why the owners of so many of these houses today make transforming the kitchen a priority. Ronan McGirr of Fine Designs Architecture was brought in to extend this period property in Dunfermline, creating a new larger dining-kitchen space that faces onto a courtyard, and featuring a dramatic angular cupola that drenches the space in light. The latter is an impressive piece of structural engineering in itself, and credit goes to the builder CDJ Watson of Dunfermline, who turned McGirr’s inspired geometry into reality. Once the building work was complete, the homeowners turned to Sculleries of Stockbridge for a kitchen design that would do justice to the new space. They wanted a handmade kitchen, and Sculleries of Stockbridge is well known for its timeless designs, all of which are tailored to suit the demands of the individual space. “To an extent, this kitchen is designed to look like separate pieces of furniture that have been brought into the room at different periods,” says designer Brian Minns. It’s an unusual but very effective approach that really fits into the style of the whole house. Space flows around the freestanding island, which is painted in Farrow & Ball’s Pale Powder and topped with a gorgeous piece of iroko wood, matching the table that was built into the curved corner of the island. This table can be moved out into the middle of the room to accommodate more diners; otherwise, the piece sits alongside the island, freeing up the floor space. “Even in a room of this size, we still had to give a lot of consideration to how the table could be moved out to seat five or six people,” says Brian. “It was important that the island and the table didn’t completely dominate the whole area.” The L-shaped stretch of floor cabinets includes an electric Aga, in black, with a gas hob. In the  42

“To an extent, this kitchen is designed to look like separate pieces of furniture that have been brought into the room at different periods� The extension was given a dramatic rooflight that supplies plenty of natural illumination. It also steers the room away from a heavy traditional feel towards something much lighter and more modern

stretch of floor cabinets below the window there is a Kohler cast-iron double undercounter sink with a Perrin & Rowe Ionian tap with spray rinse, as well as an ISE hot tap, and there is a second single sink and tap in the island. There is even an integrated Miele dishwasher in this stretch of cabinets, and integrated waste bins. The floor cabinets are hand-painted in Farrow & Ball’s Clunch. “The clients loved this subtle mix of colours,” says Brian. The wall cabinets are solid oak, matching the dresser on the third side of the space. This dresser contains a freezer and a full-sized fridge, both by Miele, with a butler’s pantry in the centre with hand-carved drawer detailing. The two top panels open to reveal a TV – a nice design touch. It was important to create a sense of balance, and this is achieved by the symmetry in the design – with the wall cabinets framing the Aga, for example, and in the design of the dresser. The natural palette is complemented by limestone flooring, which the homeowners sourced themselves, and this organic finish extends into the laundry room. Leathered Cosmic Black granite was chosen for the cabinet worktops and as the splashback behind the Aga. The grain gives this granite a lively finish – it’s a particularly beautiful backdrop to the Aga – that nevertheless looks timeless. There are other nice details such as the oak wine rack built into one corner – a corner that was created by the

structure of the building, demonstrating the benefits of a bespoke approach. The wall cabinets are lit internally to highlight the detailing, with downlighters illuminating the worktops. The laundry room, meanwhile, was fitted with floorto-ceiling cabinets painted in the same Pale Powder hue as the island, creating a real sense of connection between the two areas. This bespoke kitchen was clearly designed for longevity, both in terms of aesthetics and quality. And it really does work beautifully.

Designer secrets One benefit of hand-painted cabinetry is that it gives you the option of changing the whole look without the upheaval or expense of changing the kitchen itself – all it takes is a new colour palette to transform the look, particularly if you’ve gone for flooring and granite that give a neutral backdrop. A handmade kitchen can be tailored to the idiosyncrasies of a space – which is particularly relevant in a period house where walls are not always at right angles. Here, one cabinet was tailormade to incorporate an integrated freezer. As Brian says: “Because we manufacture the kitchens ourselves, we can make the cabinets work for the appliances.”

“We knew the living area was going to be very opulent, so the kitchen couldn’t appear to overpower the space”

DETAILS What A Georgian hotel with four private apartments Where Atholl Crescent, Edinburgh Brief Designing cooking/entertaining zones in the suites of the Atholl – without changing any of the original features

CAMERON INTERIORS A restrictive brief for a dual-purpose kitchen... this project had its work cut out before it had even begun Words Gabriella Bennett

It’s hard to beat a hotel in a historic building that gives visitors a taste of breathtaking contemporary style once they’re inside. Private homes too are even more desirable with a grand façade. So if a project happens to combine both ideas – private, catered apartments in a top-class hotel, in a curve of splendid Edinburgh townhouses – you would surely be on to a winner. Well, maybe. In fact, when Kirsten Robeson, managing director of Cameron Interiors, was tasked with creating a kitchen for each of the Atholl’s four suites, the merging of old and new seemed impossible. Strict instructions had been issued, making it clear that every single original detail of the apartments had to be retained. There was practically no wriggle room for creativity – or so it seemed. “As well as working with the existing surroundings, we weren’t allowed to change anything,” says Kirsten. Each of the Atholl’s suites needed a luxury kitchen that could be used for cooking (mainly by private chefs for guests’ parties) and work in harmony with the adjoining living room.

This posed another challenge to the design team: “We knew the living area was going to be very opulent, so although the kitchen had to be stunning in its own right, it couldn’t appear to overpower the space”. The solution grew out of some lateral thinking: scrapping the original herringbone floor wasn’t an option; instead, it was made into a feature of the room by building an oversized island on legs to show it off to its full potential. The streamlined Siemens oven and hob married with the black oak veneer of the b3 kitchen furniture (including a 1cm laminate worktop with a recessed, integral sink) to give a contemporary edge. Making the greige laminate island extra-large was a crucial element of the design as it kept everything in proportion with the vast dimensions of the room while also proving practical: a whole family or group of guests can be stationed around it, chatting, eating and drinking. “It was important not to detract from the surroundings of the Atholl building itself ” concludes Kirsten. “To complement it was key”.

MURRAY & MURRAY Relocating a kitchen to a grand public room – without disturbing its original features – required a delicate touch Words: Fiona Reid

When this grade-A listed house in Edinburgh required substantial refurbishment to return what had previously been two flats back into a single dwelling, it was a job for the city’s Helen Lucas Architects, with main contractor John McMenamin Ltd doing the building work. As part of the process of transformation, the kitchen was relocated to one of the house’s most impressive reception rooms, creating a sense of flow between it and the adjoining living room, which is accessed through a set of double doors.

48

The first designs that Gillian McCollum of Murray & Murray drew up for this kitchen were, not surprisingly, very traditional and in keeping with the style of a house of this period. On reflection, however, the owner decided that she wanted something more contemporary that would contrast with the building’s character and detailing. Gillian went back to the drawing board and developed a striking minimalist scheme that sparkles with clean lines and sleek finishes. The kitchen was made bespoke with MDF

THE FACTS One stipulation of gaining planning consent was that the kitchen should not affect the house’s existing period detailing, and as a result the new elements sit ‘lightly’ within the space. For example, the room had a traditional Edinburgh press with a stone facing; in order to retain this the wall was relined, creating a 20mm step – and an ideal surface for the glass splashback. The cabinets were also scribed sensitively around the original skirting boards.

“A slender, subtly reflective Silestone worktop wraps over the elongated island”

cabinetry spray-painted in Farrow & Ball’s Wimborne White, matching the ceiling and woodwork, with a mid-sheen finish chosen to catch the light. A slender, subtly reflective Silestone worktop wraps over the elongated island. The appliances are by Miele and Gaggenau, including a Gaggenau stainlesssteel fridge-freezer and an induction hob and a downdraft extractor. The walls are painted in Farrow & Ball’s Elephant’s Breath, and this, together with the kitchen cabinetry and worktop and the existing oak flooring, creates a gentle monochromatic palette. These cool shades of grey are broken up by pops of lively colour, from the apple-green glass splashback to the furniture and upholstery.The client already had the bar stools and dining chairs; the latter were upholstered in vibrant shades, giving them a fresh lease of life, while the same fabric was used on the upholstered window seat. The European oak table was made to measure by Murray & Murray, and its chunky lines contrast nicely with the kitchen. Conscious that the high ceiling could make the kitchen feel ‘short’, wall lighting (from David Brown Lighting) was introduced above the floor cabinets, while two pendants were suspended over the island from one central fitting in order to work with the original single ceiling rose. Success.

CARRON BATHROOMS has been manufacturing acrylic baths for over 30 years, but its history stretches back to the 1700s. It is still based on the site of the original Carron Company, founded in 1759, whose success was built on iron moulding and the manufacture of such iconic items as red post boxes and the cannons used in the American Civil War. That manufacturing expertise has been brought up to date; Carron Bathrooms was formed in 1982 and is now Europe’s leading bath manufacturer. Its patented Carronite reinforcement process offers a genuine alternative to the strength and rigidity of cast iron, with none of the drawbacks. It also gives customers the confidence of a 30-year warranty, with no compromise on style. Excellent design, craftsmanship and practicality are all part of Carron’s philosophy. Its high-quality products are all designed and manufactured in Britain and there’s plenty of variety to choose from – the largest product range of any European bath manufacturer, in fact.

“Excellent design, craftsmanship and practicality are all part of Carron’s philosophy”

All sorts of clients buy bathrooms here, from architects searching for a stunning statement bath for a particular installation to young couples on a budget looking for a practical solution to bathing and showering in a small space. Two of its collections, Celsius and Quantum, demonstrate this. Celsius, launched in 2009, is Carron’s most ambitious range yet. It pushes the boundaries of modern design and makes a statement in any bathroom. Quantum provides a comprehensive selection of different-sized baths at an affordable price. There are 18 options to choose from, including rectangular, space-saver and shower-bath options – proof that style doesn’t have to be compromised for practicality. To get the best out of Carron’s products, they must be installed by an industry professional. A network of independent showrooms and plumber’s merchants will assist in designing your bathroom, and provide technical and after-sales support, minimising what can be a stressful experience. Top tip: “Accessorise. Modern baths are almost exclusively white – avocado is a thing of the past. Make the most of this blank canvas by accessorising with bold colours. Simply changing a wall colour or some towels can influence the entire mood of your bathroom.”

Porcelanosa bathrooms and kitchens stand out thanks to a combination of innovative design, gorgeous materials and cutting-edge techniques. It’s no wonder the brand is often the first port of call for interior designers and architects looking to give a room a stylish, unmistakably contemporary feel. Geometric taps, such as the one below, and integrated appliances provide thrilling extra flourishes, as does the brand’s famous ceramic tiles

PORCELANOSA designs, manufactures and sells an exclusive range of luxury bathrooms, kitchens, tiles, ceramics and hardwood flooring. The Spanish-owned company’s designs tend to be contemporary and fresh with an enviable European feel that is appreciated as much by developers, interior designers, architects and house builders as it is by ordinary customers looking for a stylish new bathroom and kitchen for their own home. Projects with unlimited budgets are always nice, but Porcelanosa has plenty of products to suit clients who are more price-conscious. The company’s state-of-the-art showroom at Braehead in Glasgow gives clients a chance to explore a wide range of kitchen and bathroom displays as well as admire the tile ranges – well worth doing, as ceramic tiles have made the company world-famous. Experienced staff are on hand to offer

technical advice, a free 3D planning service and a chance to talk through your ideas with a dedicated interior designer.They’ll be happy to work alongside the client to meet their specific budget and style requirements, often with a tailormade package.They can tackle Victorian townhouses with a classic style and lots of original features just as easily as they can work on minimalist, architecturally driven new-builds that require cutting-edge new products. All of Porcelanosa’s designers have a degree in interior design and many have won industry awards. Clients appreciate the fact that they are dealing with a professional team who can offer both technical and creative advice on

the full package from flooring and wall coverings to furniture and fittings. As a company that makes all its own products, Porcelanosa is always innovating. Its new-generation product, Krion, has been a key material in its baths and shower trays. It’s warm to the touch and similar to natural stone. Now, the design team are exploring ways to use this material in restaurants, building façades and kitchen worktops. The possibilities are endless. Top tip: Speak to your designer in depth. Be specific about your requirements but be open-minded about the outcome.This lets the designer interpret your needs and explore options that you might never have imagined.
