    Kitchen of the week: glamorous white

    by  • May 13, 2015 • Kitchen Ideas


    There are so many things to love about this kitchen. The owner is a super-stylish former antiques dealer who fell in love with French style and envisaged a calm apothecary style open-plan room for her Victorian home in London.

    She chose bespoke units by Charlie Kingham, sourcing some of the details from vintage and antiques shops to incorporate into the design. Carrara marble worktops and a classic range cooker from La Cornue complete the look.

    In this scheme, every single detail has been considered carefully, from the comfortable bar seats to the light and welcoming dining area with garden views, framed by sash windows and classic French doors.

    See more of this stunning design, with interviews with both the owner and designer, in the June/July 2015 issue of Beautiful Kitchens magazine. On sale now, and available to buy as a digital edition for your tablet and mobile.

    White remains an absolute classic for the kitchen. Bright and airy to make the most of natural daylight – just look how an all-white scheme boosts the sense of space in this neat side return extension.

    It’s also hygienic and the perfect foil for a bold wall colour or perhaps a pop of bright accessories.

    Neil Lerner white kitchen

    From fashion to interior design, oversized EVERYTHING is in right now, and that extends to wall units.  These 116cm-high cupboards make a dramatic statement and eliminate a dusty top area. The eye-catching splash back, made of durable, easy-to-clean porcelain, echoes the look of spectacular bookmatched marble and makes a real impact. Neil Lerner kitchens from £30,000.

    Planning a basement kitchen

    by  • July 24, 2014 • Planning advice

    White basement kitchen

    It can be controversial but, if you can’t extend to the back or the side, digging down can be a successful path to the open-plan kitchen, diner and living space you’ve always wanted.

    Excavating or renovating?

    While you would think that it must be cheaper and a lot less hassle to renovate an existing cellar, it doesn’t always hold true. Standard room height is about 2.7m but you will likely need to dig down to about 3.5m to accommodate underpinning and structural work, so you might not be much better off.

    The new Bexton kitchen from Caple

    by  • July 8, 2013 • Kitchen Ideas • 0 Comments

    The new Bexton kitchen from Caple caught my eye, this week.

    It successfully combines classic styling with a modern twist. The cabinetry features curved and glass-fronted Shaker-style doors, with a beautiful wood grain painted effect in ivory. I particularly like the simple stainless steel square knobs.

    If you like the idea of a light coloured kitchen scheme, we have plenty more for you.

    Mirrored insets and plinths enhance the feeling of light and space in this timeless kitchen.


    Curved units give a softer look to this ivory coloured kitchen,from Mereway.


    A shabby chic, vintage feel has been created here, with distressed painted floorboards, open brickwork, hidden storage and eclectic accessories.
