Situated within an orangery, this open-plan kitchen and dining area boasts a stunning rafted ceiling that simply pools the room with light, making it a key focal point of the house. The existing kitchen was functional but old fashioned, and with such exceptional architecture, the couple seized the opportunity to have the kitchen of their dreams!
In the summer of 2017, the owners arranged a consultation with Raycross Interiors at the showroom in Byfleet Village. The design team crafted full 3D visuals following the couple’s brief and set the installation date for November, to ensure everything would be complete in time for the big family gathering at Christmas.
Measuring 7.5m x 4.2m, the kitchen was designed around the couple’s desire to host relaxed gatherings for their family and friends. Their wish list included a bi-folding pantry unit as well as appliances from the Siemens iQ 700 series. In the centre of the kitchen stands a very impressive island, designed for maximum storage and to provide plentiful worksurface space. A pull-up power socket incorporating USB connectors has been installed to ensure the full functionality of the preparation area.
A large double-bowl Belfast sink, with the latest Quooker Flex Tap, is positioned near the window overlooking the family’s front garden. Utilising a very clever storage facility, two Le Mans carousel units have been installed in each corner of the kitchen. The clients’ choice of the ‘Cirrus’ range of furniture in colour palette mid-grey looks extremely stylish with the Shaker beaded in-frame door. They knew from the offset that they wanted a white marble worktop in their new kitchen and the 30mm quartz Carrera marble works exquisitely with the furniture colour chosen.
The homeowners commented: “We were so impressed with the Raycross Interiors service from start to finish. Our kitchen designer took time to fully understand our requirements and worked hard to create beautiful designs that perfectly captured our vision. Their CAD-generated visuals were impressive and allowed us to accurately visualise the kitchen and test a variety of layout options. The installation was of impeccable quality and fully project managed by our kitchen designer. We’re delighted with our beautiful new kitchen and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Raycross Interiors!”
