Longford Kitchen, Felsted, Essex

This Longford kitchen in the Humphrey Munson showroom in Felsted, Essex bears all the hallmarks of classic English design. Perfectly proportioned and embracing the Georgian design principles of simplicity and symmetry, the Longford kitchen is a nod to the heritage of English craftsmanship.

Handmade by a team of talented cabinetmakers, the kitchen was made using traditional joinery techniques combined with modern innovation. So, although the drawers are constructed using one of the oldest forms of joinery – the dovetail – they also sit on the very best soft close drawer runners available.

Mirroring this combination of old and new, the Aga – an iconic British cast iron range cooker – is actually the dual control model so it suits modern family living perfectly. With 3 ovens for baking, roasting and simmering and two plates, this stunning white Aga has a control panel which allows you to have either the ovens or the plates (or both) on as required. The Aga has Westin extraction concealed in the canopy above and white metro tiles behind.

The curved corners in this kitchen are a particularly useful design feature near the entrance points as they enable the space to open up more fully than a square edge. The island reflects this with a curved edge that allows seating for two people by Vincent Sheppard and plenty of storage including wide cutlery drawers lined with grey baize. The island worktop is black anticato granite, while the sink run worktop is by Silestone.

This Longford kitchen has antique brass accents throughout which work perfectly with the soft blue/grey colour palette and really bring a sense of warmth and character to the space.
