Whether you live in a three bed semi, a farm house or a self build painted kitchens are by far the most popular kitchen out there. Most people have made there mind up before they even reach our showroom. They have done their research online and more than likely have a magazine under their arm with all the different pages folded where they have found interesting ideas or features.Farrow and Ball is one of the first colours mentioned when discussing a painted kitchen. Over the years people wanted a “cream kitchen” but as kitchens evolve and the client get bored of the norm companies come up with new colours new names and focus on giving something that’s different to what others are doing. Farrow and Ball have done just that. It’s no longer called Cream it’s called Old White, a shade of green is now called Bone or if you want a shade of green with a hint of grey you have Stoney Ground! That’s where the following kitchen came from. The client wanted a grey painted kitchen but wanted something slightly warmer in appearance. Have looked through the relevant colour charts Stoney Ground was decided on.
The colour of this kitchen was decided on quickly then came the decision on the island – Painted or a wood finish. Walnut seemed to be a simple choice. We went with walnut in the island and then decided that the kitchen needed some injection of wood to carry the theme throughout. We added walnut sheeted backs to to the dresser area and pull out walnut spice racks either side of the hob area.
This kitchen will be featured in Irish Kitchens magazine on January 27th. It’s a design we are pretty proud of and wanted to share.
