Listed Manor House Bespoke Kitchen

Our design brief for this family estate house was to bring in the natural light which wrapped around the whole space and to incorporate a new island to sit at in the kitchen. The natural flow incorporates the breakfast room and orangery. The combination of work surface materials and natural shades make best use of the light and the views to the garden from almost every angle.

Country Cottage Handmade Kitchen

A tired old cramped kitchen was transformed into an open, light space incorporating the oak framed garden room as the dining area. This opened up the kitchen enabling Shona to cleverly design smart storage by removing the wall cabinets and old extractor resulting in the area being flooded with natural light.

 

Large Family Kitchen

Creating your dream kitchen is a rare opportunity to tailor everything to suit your family. In this new build, where the family includes six children and they do lots of entertaining, the kitchen took centre stage as the heart of the house with the whole building being designed around it.

 

Modern Country Kitchen

This was a transformation from dark to light. The original imposing beamed ceiling was removed and replaced making a light, airy and fresh open plan kitchen-diner. The whole area is now the real hub of the house and the children love it!

 

Morningside Villa Conversion

This traditional villa conversion required us to remove the wall to create a seamless kitchen/dining/living space with an easy flow between the newly created areas. An informal breakfast bar in the kitchen itself leads onto a dining area and then to the living area beyond. Along with the kitchen itself, we undertook all the building work to create the new open plan space. Being a one stop shop in control of the process makes the whole installation easier and more practical for the client.

 

Edinburgh New Town

This was an individual design specifically for the client enabling the creation of a bespoke kitchen diner along with a new utility room as well as custom bedroom furniture. The island and table are designed work together so that the table can be moved around to seat more people as required. The utility room with washer dryer and additional sink again retain the natural light and the custom bedroom furniture with shelves is perfectly proportioned for shoes and other treasures!

 

Classic Family Kitchen

Countryside Kitchens & Interiors came up with a design that completely reversed the kitchen to give access through French doors onto the garden and patio, with the main sink now also facing the lovely garden view. “The flow of the kitchen is so much better now. We’ve arranged it so that we can have five of us round the breakfast bar, and the children love to sit and have some squash and chat while I’m cooking, so it’s a very sociable place.

 

A Mansion House Kitchen

The great thing about Countryside Kitchens & Interiors is that everything is bespoke, so we were able to get exactly what we wanted and keep the Georgian feel along with practical solutions. So we have a Georgian-style mantel around the Aga, with built-in cupboards. I also found some ideas in magazines, including a special bread bin and knife rack which were specially created to fit the space.”

 

Classic Family Kitchen

Creating your dream kitchen is a rare opportunity to tailor everything to suit your family. In this new build, where the family includes six children and they do lots of entertaining, the kitchen took centre stage as the heart of the house with the whole building being designed around it. With a fabulous view of the Borders countryside, the orientation takes full advantage of this with south-facing French doors leading onto the patio. It was important for the space to feel very open, with plenty of space for socialising. “We’ve had Christmas parties with 150 people, and this is really the hub of our house.”
