Andy and Mandy (McCabe) live in a large detached modern home, with separate kitchen and utility. And although both rooms functioned ok didn’t offer the open plan living space in vogue today. So, Andy and Mandy embarked on a single storey extension to the back of their property and planned to remove the kitchen wall to the extension then remove the wall between the kitchen and the utility to create one large kitchen open plan living/ dining space with log burner. They were looking for a white high gloss with a modern feel, to include island complete with social seating, American fridge freezer- single oven and combination microwave oven, induction hob as well as working around the existing boiler and to include laundry.

Mr & Mrs Allen live in a large detached property in the nice end of town, both professionals they were embarking on removing some internal walls between their existing kitchen and dining room to open up a kitchen dining living space. The removal of the wall would require a vertical steel that would need incorporating with in the design. The kitchen the hub of the space needed function well and sit harmoniously with the other elements of the space. They were looking for an interesting design with built in appliances, storage, breakfast bar type seating (two people day to day) with a place for everything. Coffee machine was very important as was a large island, larder storage, wine cellar, integrated bins, Quooker boiling water tap. Read More
Alastair & Claudia, who entertain regularly, wanted a new kitchen to compliment their planned extension with the ‘whow’ factor.
As they are both keen cooks they totally bought into the need for a pair of Neff pyroclean multifunction ovens combined with a combination oven/microwave and a full steam oven. Being a busy working couple they mostly buy fresh so I also suggested they go for 2 x 70/30 Neff fridge/freezers rather than the more conventional full height fridge and separate freezer. They also really wanted a large, easy to clean hob on the island so the Neff 90cm ‘Point & Twist’ Flex Induction hob was the perfect option especially when combine with the flush fit ceiling mounted Neff extractor. Both were drawn to the Schuller Glasline matt Lava Black handleless door design after seeing the CAD views with the stainless Steel handleless sections and to the Silestone Alumino Nube Quartz worksurface. They wanted to be able to have seating at the island, somewhere to keep the Champagne chilled and for the whole kitchen to have a very minimalist and clean lined look. Read More
South African born Shenae and her husband Matthew bought their new home in Northampton with ambitions to extending and modernising it to suit their young families changing lifestyles.
Matthew, who runs his own civil engineering firm and Shenae are both very design aware and had some firm ideas on how they wanted the finished project to look – clean, white and open plan being the main considerations for the public areas such as the kitchen, breakfast and family room.
Having seen a Schuller kitchen supplied by RFK being installed on a well known TV home improvement show they sought us out and immediately fell in love with the Schuller Next125 display that takes pride of place at the front of the RFK Rugby showroom.
