Contemporary Family Kitchen, Essex
The Spenlow kitchen design really suits the classic contemporary feel of this Victorian family home in Chelmsford, Essex. With two young children, the homeowners wanted a versatile space that was suitable for everyday family life but also somewhere they could entertain family and friends easily.
Embracing the classic H|M design values of symmetry, simplicity, proportion and restraint, the Spenlow design is an understated, contemporary take on classic English cabinetry design. With metallic accents throughout – from the pendant lighting, to the polished nickel hardware, this design is the perfect balance of classic and contemporary.
Cooking Area and Chimney
The large chimney with range cooker is perfectly proportioned to the space and allows the homeowners to easily prepare and then cook with everything to hand. The chimney has inset open niches for easily access to everyday condiments, and space either side of the range for prep and putting pans down. The antique effect mirror splashback allows the light to bounce around the room and keeps the cooking area light and bright.
To the left of the main cooking area is the breakfast pantry which houses the coffee machine and provides storage for everyday items like tea and coffee, and also plenty of space for cups, mugs and tableware. The deep drawers below provide a mass of storage for dry goods like bread and snacks.
Designated as the main prep area, the island has the large Kohler smart divide sink which is flanked by the integrated dishwasher and pull out eurocargo bin. There is seating at the island by Vincent Sheppard which provides so much usability throughout the day.
Walk in Larder
The walk in larder has our H|M artisan shelves all the wall around in a classic u-shape design. A utilitarian space, the larder provides masses of additional storage allowing the main kitchen to remain free and uncluttered ensuring a calm and welcoming feel.
