Victorian Kitchen Extension, Essex

Classic Contemporary Victorian Kitchen Extension

With a lovely extension to the rear of this stunning detached Victorian home, the homeowners chose Humphrey Munson to design, make and install a bespoke kitchen that would suit both the old and new aspects of the home.

The kitchen design is from the Nickleby range which has a simple bead detail and really captures the essence and spirit of the classic contemporary kitchen. The touches of luxury throughout create a simple and understated design perfect for modern living.

The Nickleby kitchen design has painted cupboards made from tulipwood which is a North American hardwood featuring a smooth and knot free surface. Our high quality carcasses are constructed using a solid birchwood ply renowned for its durability. Drawer boxes are made of solid oak and traditionally joined using dovetail joints. The island and worktops are Black Anticato which has a beautiful mottled finish and gives the kitchen an extra layer of texture. 

The island incorporates the Kohler Modultop sink, Perrin & Rowe Phoenician triflow tap in pewter, a Quooker Pro-3-Vac Classic Tap in Brushed Nickel and has a generous prep area. There is also an overhang on the island which creates space for seating. The integrated Miele dishwasher ensures maximum functionality and convenience when clearing away after meals. 

The island also encompasses the Miele Built-In Steam Oven which faces the 2 oven Aga in cream with a Miele induction hob located on the left. The splashback behind the Aga is an antique distressed effect mirror which reflects the light across the kitchen island.

The AEG side-by-side fridge freezer has bespoke cabinetry built around it. There is also a separate pantry and larder area just off the archway which contains ample storage space, particularly useful for storing kitchen appliances.
