Modern Open Plan Kitchen

After living in a small terraced house for years (where we fitted the kitchen about 10 years ago) our clients William and Kerry decided to build their own very modern individual house on an elevated plot above the river Ehen with fabulous views overlooking the Cumbrian Fells. We were asked to design a modern kitchen that would be easy maintainance, open plan to take full advantage of the position and views and with a little bit of WOW!

We designed a curvy island with storage and wine racks and overhanging areas for seating to enjoy the glass of wine. We recommended ovens at eye level, and installed an AEG Pyroluxe self cleaning oven next to a matching AEG Combination microwave oven with a warming drawer below so that the appliances all lined up. These are in the centre of 2 tall units, one housing the integrated fridge freezer and the other tall unit is a tall larder unit. Above the ovens is an illuminated display area where our Kerry has chosen to display her collection of Chinese plates. After cooking on gas all her life, I demonstrated and explained the features and benefits of Induction cooking, with its speed, controllability, efficiency and ease of cleaning.

Kerry now absolutely loves her new AEG induction hob and couldn’t imagine ever using gas again. The headroom hood over the hob is ducted to the outside which is so important in an open plan house to avoid cooking smells and grease lingering around. The dishwasher next to the sink means everything can be cleared away instantly, keeping the kitchen clean and tidy at all times. Our clients are very pleased with their second Lawrence Eden kitchen.

Christine Chadwicks favourite AEG product is the Induction Hobs

The slim and sleek design of AEG induction hobs allows you to choose even the most contemporary of worktops without compromise.
