Our client, a returning customer, had recently moved house, leaving behind a much-loved Stephen Graver kitchen. She was keen to recreate some of the features that she had enjoyed so much in her previous home within her downsized new-build property.
Due to the smaller scale of the kitchen in the new home, creative use of storage was vital in-order to generate valuable space for all the clients’ requirements. We altered the layout of the appliances which included installation of new electrics and plumbing to create a design that would maximise both storage and counter space. We continued the bespoke cabinetry above the door and beyond into the dining area, in turn creating more storage space and a bespoke workspace.
Our client opted for two-tone cabinetry, including dove grey floor to ceiling units on one side, and magenta units with San Filippo granite on the other. The use of the light grey on the wall cabinets alongside the complimentary light wall painted walls helps to increase the feeling of light and space. The cabinet interiors contain a well-considered combination of drawers, larder, and shelving to provide maximum storage potential.
As part of the project, we also designed and installed a range of bespoke storage solutions throughout the new home, including a media unit in the living room, bathroom furniture, as well as a storage cabinet for the cloakroom.
Our client was delighted with the completed project commenting:
“We had a Stephen Graver kitchen in our previous house, which was amazing but circumstances changed and I have moved into a new build property. When viewing my current house, I knew that I would need to replace the kitchen, along with having other storage solutions added. The size of the kitchen is limited and this was a challenge for Stephen to give me all that I required, but once again I have an amazing bespoke kitchen, which also has plenty of storage and is a joy to work in. For me the kitchen is the most important room in a house and therefore it’s important to make it work for the individual, and I now have exactly that.
Stephen also designed a bespoke display unit for the sitting room and added various cupboards throughout the house, giving me the storage that was originally lacking.
The various teams that worked on the different projects were all very polite and professional and at the end of the day the house was always left in a tidy state. All the projects were completed on schedule, within budget and to and to a very high standard.
Having had two completely different Stephen Graver kitchens in five years, I call this a testimony in itself. I would highly recommend Stephen Graver for any high quality, bespoke improvement works required in a property.”
