The Big Build

We were asked to build a rear extension to include a new kitchen. The old kitchen (IMG_2683) was in need of an update and the clients came to us for the design. We understood that the kitchen was to be used for everyday tasks but also needed to be an entertainment area and give the ‘wow’ factor for the client and their guests. Together we chose a carbon kitchen with quartz white worktops – a combination which is very on trend and visually looks stunning. With it being an entertaining area, we were keen to hide appliances such as the washing machine and dishwasher. We also included a bin cupboard to remove unsightly waste and to contain smells. The breakfast bar return not only provides a place to eat but also further storage. We decided to keep straight edges rather than curve the bar as the extension is modern and we felt the straight lines provided the right crisp clean look the client was after. Two ovens provide plenty of cooking options and the Sensecook probe is a real asset for the perfect roast or cake! The pyrolytic cleaning system means less time scrubbing ovens and more time cooking fabulous tasting and smelling dishes! The washing machine and dishwasher are very quiet so as not to interrupt and conversations or dinner parties! We also used built in fridge and freezers so that these are also hidden from view. In terms of sharpening the senses, the aesthetics with the dark cupboards and light worktop please the eyes, the quartz worktop is cool to the touch and is very durable, the appliances are quiet to minimise noise pollution and the ovens provide the smells! We like to think it is a beautiful kitchen which will stand the test of time and provide a family and entertaining space!

Maddy Urens favourite AEG product is the SteamPro Combination Oven

Every meal should be an experience. With that in mind, we created the SteamPro oven. It automatically calculates the exact amount of heat and steam, so whether you’re roasting or grilling meats, baking bread, creating delicate desserts or using the SousVide feature, food will remain golden and crisp on the outside and juicy and succulent.
