This is a large sunny kitchen in the leafy village of Cleeve. We produced stylish Shaker cabinetry and a vast L-shaped island unit including breakfast bar, larder cupboards and free-standing dressers. These fantastic clients came to us after visiting other high-end kitchen designers. They provided their own hand-drawn sketches and I was able to create exactly what they wanted whilst offering a more bespoke service.
In the main kitchen the L-shaped run incorporates a Belfast sink and a bespoke cooker hood housing the extractor over the Aga. The island is large enough to house a fridge, induction hob, sink and sockets, along with plentiful storage and a hidden cupboard beneath the breakfast bar.
The larder cupboards feature a bridging unit over the fridge freezer and wine cooler. There is one free standing glass panelled display dresser and a working dresser with bi-fold doors housing the small appliances.
All drawers are solid oak – dovetailed to add a traditional touch to this modern kitchen – and run on full extension soft close runners. There are bespoke larder drawers and spice racks utilising all the available space.
Special details include LED cool white lights set inside the dresser and larder cupboards on door activated sensors. The three oak corner shelves tie in with the oak on the dresser to bring the whole room together. We worked closely with electricians, plumbers, the tiler and masonry contractors to ensure everything was just right.
Style: Contemporary shaker style
Materials: Painted MDF doors and fascias, and solid timber cabinets with veneered boards
Colour: Main kitchen Farrow & Ball ‘Manor House Grey’, with the island in Farrow & Ball ‘Downpipe’
We would like to say how pleased we are with both the service and the quality of our new bespoke kitchen built and installed by Jim Sharples and his team. We had looked at the kitchens available at a number of the specialist bespoke kitchen showrooms in Clifton but we feel that in using Jim Sharples we have a kitchen which equals or surpasses those that we viewed and at a significant cost saving! Jim came up with some excellent suggestions in terms of design and ideas for finishing touches. Every time we walk in the kitchen it puts a smile on our faces. Thanks Jim!Ian & Tracey
