With a clean and light feel, this kitchen renovation from Worthing, West Sussex boasts a timeless dynamic, perfectly tailored to fit this space with both traditional and contemporary kitchen features.
Housed in a traditional Worthing home a stone’s throw from our Worthing showroom is this elegant British kitchen that is packed with kitchen features and accessories. Managing director Phil has designed this almost entirely using our virtual appointment service, this project is a fantastic example of the results that can be achieved using our online design service.
The brief for this project was a contemporary upgrade on the existing kitchen, which can be viewed below. Much of the kitchen layout has stayed the same as the original, with an island replacing the original octagonal peninsula island. Upgrades have been made throughout the space to suit the lifestyle of this client, with enhanced in-cupboard storage solutions used so there is no need for clutter in the kitchen.
Many features of the previous kitchen have been adapted into the new kitchen space. The original octagonal island has been replaced with a stand-alone island and Corian surfaces have again been used at the client’s request to give the a neat flowing appearance to the worktops. The layout of the kitchen is much the same with a wall-to-wall run replacing the previous L shaped layout opposite the island. Curved units replace the previous chamfered exposed shelving with plenty of wine storage featuring on the opposite side of the new island.
To create this clean and quintessential kitchen space, British supplier Mereway have been selected. Mereway have one of the vastest collections of shaker style furniture, with the client opting to use the contemporary Charnwood range for their renovation. The Cashmere colour option has been used for the kitchen with the client choosing a lighter kitchen tone to keep the space feeling light and airy.
The Charnwood range also gives this project flexibility with the option of curved units and heaps of neat storage and design features allowing features like glazed units and exposed shelving to feature. To complement furniture, chrome doorknobs and shell handles have been used for simple and stylish access.
To bring functionality to this kitchen space, Neff appliances have been used throughout with a double oven, gas hob, undermounted fridge and built-in extractor all included as part of the renovation. The Neff N70 gas hob has been integrated into the island space with the built-in extractor directly above. This hob boasts five burning areas, with a dual ring wok burner included for fast cooking. Neff FlameSelect technology features on this appliance with the precise option of nine cleverly controlled gas flows.
The extraction system above this hob is another similar inclusion to the original kitchen but has been scaled back in size to ensure that there is a clean line of sight across the kitchen space. A remote control built into this appliance operates this hob with a stainless-steel panel descending to channel cooking odours and scents into the extraction system. A Wifi enabled Neff double oven and integrated Neff fridge have been integrated behind furniture for extra cold storage and extra cooking capabilities.
One of the most alluring inclusions in this kitchen is the beautiful Corian work surfaces. Selected in the Limestone Prima finish, these worktops create a beautiful flowing aesthetic through their acrylic composition and captivating finish. The Limestone Prima choice for this project uses a light grey base with flecks and earthy veining to create a fantastic appearance. The Corian surface expands out to the main window in this kitchen, with a seamless join between the crisp white kitchen sink and worksurface with integrated drainer grooves into the sink and heat mat aside the hob.
Above the Corian worktop upstands, trendy white metro tiling has been fitted up to wall units, where undercabinet LED lighting beams down illuminating the food preperation areas.
A vast selection of kitchen features has enabled the client to put their own unique twist on their kitchen space. Inventive storage solutions in both corners of the u-shape kitchen area help maximise storage with pull out drawers integrated into a tall unit opposite the oven. As mentioned, an integrated wine store has been included in the rear of the island with storage for twenty-four bottles.
Alongside the run of units on the right-hand side of this kitchen a decorative area has been created by combining exposed shelving and glass fronted units. This has been used by the client to store glassware and books in a nicely finished fashion. Curved units have been used to soften any harsh edges in the kitchen, with the Corian carefully fabricated around the curves to create a nice soft feel throughout.
This kitchen and living area has been expertly designed using our virtual appointment service, with a few elements viewed in-person when restrictions permitted – showcasing the talent and expertise of our design team. Alongside the design, our team of excellent tradesmen have created a beautiful space fully equipped with a fresh plaster in places, new lighting and kitchen appliances along with tiling between furniture units and perfectly fabricated worktops.
