Creating a modern luxury kitchen, even in the smallest of spaces

For Stuart and Barbara Farquhar stepping into their new modern kitchen is like walking into a luxury, exotic holiday destination.

Online PR News – 13-July-2010 – – Barbara and Stuart commissioned the Kitchen Design Centre to bring their small but functional 23 year old kitchen up to date, expanding on the space to incorporate a much desired dining area.

Their tired kitchen has now been transformed into a modern airy kitchen diner filled with light.

“I asked the Kitchen Design Centre and another company to draw up some designs for my kitchen and once I saw the artwork from the Kitchen Design Centre I knew that was what I was going to go for-it was perfect!

“I have seen the work that Kitchen Design Centre produce, through friends and family, so I wasn’t surprised that I loved their ideas and design,” said Barbara.

Living in a 1970’s bungalow Barbara and Stuart wanted to bring their kitchen more in keeping with the rest of the house giving it a modern edge.

Barbara said: “The vision of our designer, Emma, who came up with the stunning design like no other we had seen, was wonderful.

“The computer generated visualisations that Emma created were so accurate that many friends initially thought they were photos of the finished kitchen, not drawings done months before.”

The kitchen houses all of the latest Neff appliances from a large fridge freezer, warming drawer, to a built in oven and microwave and the latest Neff induction hobs.

Emma, Designer from the Kitchen Design Centre, said: “This project was certainly tricky as the amount of space we had to work with was quite tight and we still wanted to make sure the Farquhar’s had all of the appliances built in.

“To overcome this we had to be creative in where and how the new kitchen appliances were fitted.

“The new dining area houses a purpose built dresser which cleverly hides the washing machine making sure the modern and sleek finish wasn’t compromised.“

Barbara added: “We are so pleased with the final product we are left with. The Kitchen Design Centre craftsmen arrived on time every day and work proceeded without a hitch, despite the worst snow for 30 years. We were very impressed at how well all the 'trades' worked with and around each other.”

This project involved an extension to the original kitchen to incorporate a dining area into the room, something Barbara was looking for.

“Being able to now eat in the new kitchen whilst being far enough away from the hub of the preparation aspect of the kitchen is a definite plus, it is certainly the aspect of my design that I most pleased with.

“Seeing my ideas come to life was fantastic especially as I was very open minded and I couldn’t put my finger on exactly what I wanted until I saw it.

I would certainly recommend Kitchen Design Centre, the work they produce, the ideas they create and the craftsmanship is like no other I have seen, it was a pleasure to work with them.”
