    Kitchen of the week: shape-shifting in white

    by  • June 15, 2015 • Kitchen Ideas


    One of the things the owners liked about this room was the way the architect had maximised every inch of space by following the gradient of the neighbouring boundary. This resulted in a bit of an odd shape for the kitchen and, alas, the cabinetry that had been fitted had not been quite so successful at making the most of those precious extra inches.

    Kitchen of the week: serene side return

    Beautiful kitchens kicthen of the week 1 June 15

    The side return extension is one of the most popular residential projects on period homes, especially terraces and semis as, what seems like a mere sliver of a space, can radically transform the downstairs layout.

    The owners of this bright and serene kitchen had already fitted a kitchen in this property when they first moved in, but it was the later side return extension that really gave them the space they needed. Second time around, lessons learnt from their first project shaped their ideas to create this good looking design that works brilliantly for all the family.

    To see more of this stunning design, with interviews with both the owner and designer, download a digital edition of the June/July 2015 issue of Beautiful Kitchens magazine for your tablet and mobile, or buy an issue at good newsagents.

    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.
