Grove Barn

This clever little kitchen was led by the client’s own creativity. Deciding that an off-the-shelf solution wouldn’t work, Sarah produced a scale drawing which she brought to us along with some mood boards. The client knew that she wanted a palette of soft neutrals to make the space seem larger and an island in a contrasting colour designed to hide appliances.

The solid oak island looks simple, but it has a secret! None of the cabinets were the same size, allowing the client to incorporate a microwave, bookshelves, a wine cooler and large drawers. The boiler and washing machine are also cleverly hidden away in a unit made to look like a dresser.

This kitchen boasts an oak plate rack and an over mantle housing the extractor, with cupboards on either side ending with simple floating oak shelves. The mirrored splashback brings light into the room and draws the eye to the Elan 90 cooker from Rangemaster.

We instructed Jim and his team to design and build us a new kitchen for our barn conversion last year. The end result was a high quality, family-focussed kitchen that fitted the brief perfectly. Jim’s knowledge and expertise were second to none and the process was faultless. I have no hesitation in recommending him to others looking for local handmade, individual pieces of furniture. We hope to use him again for future projects in our next property.
