Spenlow Kitchen, Felsted, Essex

The Spenlow kitchen in our Felsted showroom was designed by Peter Humphrey, the Design Director and Founder of Humphrey Munson. As with all our kitchen designs, the Spenlow embraces the principles of symmetry, simplicity and proportion so that the underling aesthetic of the space is calm, uncluttered and wholly appealing.

The Spenlow is all about the mixology of painted kitchen cabinetry paired with American walnut resulting in a classic contemporary design perfect for modern living at its most luxurious.

In this kitchen, the hand-painted sink run has two tall Spenlow cupboards at either end housing the built-in Miele appliances – on the left, the Miele single oven and the Miele combination-steam oven on the right with a warming drawer below.

The sink run has a large deerfield sink by Kohler with the Athenian tap by Perrin & Rowe and a Quooker hot water boiling tap. Above the sink run are bespoke Spenlow glass shelving with mirror backs to reflect the light across the kitchen. Conveniently located either side of the sink are the pull out bin and dishwasher which leaves the island area free for food prep. The Miele hob has the connectivity function which means that the Miele extraction above comes on automatically when you start using the hob.

On the other side of the island is a large Spenlow cupboard used for storing crockery, tableware and glassware, large Miele freezer and refrigerator with bespoke Spenlow cabinetry surround, and a Cook’s Pantry for storing dry goods.

There is plenty of storage within the island along with bookshelves – great for storing cookbooks and a Miele under-counter wine cooler. The Havisham bar stools at the island are a bespoke design exclusive to Humphrey Munson and have the same American Walnut finish on the frames, with Italian leather upholstery.
