'To boldly go,'

I have always loved this phrase - a bravely split infinitive - going against the prescriptive sorts, boldly. And, it is aptly applied to our latest two kitchens. Both being bold and standing up to the their habitual traditions.

West Lydons is a tastefully refurbished cottage found on the Kent-Surrey border. However, the statement of a contemporary orange (F&B's Charlotte's Locks) entrance door suggests that there will be fantastic design choices inside. The kitchen is one of these.

Coinciding the traditional and simple Shaker-style are ultra-modern finishes: painted in Farrow and Ball's Railings, showcasing the rainbow of plywood for drawers and interiors; a honed Italian slate island worktop, contrasting and complementing the **** worktop surround. This kitchen epitomises bold.

And, Inglenook Cottage's path is a similar one. A delightful cottage, typifying rural Kent, with its low ceilings and awkwardly placed oak beams. But, this cottage's kitchen exemplifies style and how a space can evolve when you go bespoke.

It is finished in Farrow and Ball's Pelt, which works wonderfully with its copper accessories and white stone worktops. Built around a central oak beam, which occupies the room, the kitchen achieves so much,  practically and aesthetically. 

Please see our Kitchens page for more information on these kitchens.
