A contemporary kitchen for a period property

When Sue bought a Victorian property in Rochdale she embarked on an ambitious renovation, knocking walls down to create an open-plan area to house a new, contemporary kitchen.

A contemporary kitchen for a period property

Keen to embrace the features of the traditional property, her aim throughout was to contrast old and new with a modern kitchen.

Needing a kitchen company that could advise on the use of the space and be design-led, she turned to Paul Harrington at Kitchen Design Centre. She approached several companies but felt none of them understood what she was after. This contrasted heavily with Paul who she felt interpreted the brief perfectly and gave invaluable advice to change the long, thin kitchen in to a large, contemporary open-plan one.

As a keen Pinterest user, Sue had created several design boards and had an idea of the look she wanted. When she visited the Failsworth showroom she fell in love with a display that featured pale wood cabinets and planned to incorporate these with altering textures throughout the space. The result is contrasting Laser Soft GL Graphite and Laser brilliant GL units with Oak Sand on the island and open wall units.

When it came to appliances, Sue wanted to be able to cook with gas and was delighted that Neff did a gas hob, choosing the Domino Hob in Black Glass. She complemented this with a Flexinduction Hob and a suite of Neff ovens: the Hide and Slide Oven, Compact Oven and Microwave and the high Warming Drawer.

A Neff Fridge and No Frost Freezer completed the Neff appliances and Sue also chose a Quooker Pro3 Flex Chrome tap and a Caple Wine Cabinet.

She’s delighted with the finished kitchen and feels it really makes the downstairs of the house, “the kitchen in amazing, I can’t believe how fabulous it looks. I’ve had so many compliments and love how it works for us on a day-to-day basis but also how fantastic it is to entertain in. Kitchen Design Centre were fantastic from Paul to the fitters. Being able to visit a large showroom was vital for me too.”

What Our Designer Says

"This was a great project to work on because remodelling the downstairs and creating an open-plan area effectively gave me a blank canvas to work with. Sue had some great design ideas and the finished kitchen is the perfect example of contrasting colours and textures."

Led by Design: A Sleek, Luxurious, Contemporary KitchenDesign was of paramount importance for Derick and Mandy when it came to choosing a kitchen company to replace the kitchen in their Barrowford home.They approached three other kitchen companies but Kitchen Design Centre and Designer Suzanne Ryan were the obvious choice: Kitchen Design Centre's design focus, instead of a heavy sales approach impressed them and they were delighted with Suzanne's first design, feeling she understood the brief to create a high-end kitchen.Suzanne changed the layout of the kitchen space completely. Their existing kitchen lacked flair, consisting of a peninsular-based layout which resulted in a lot of wasted space. She totally reconfigured it, creating a much more open space and introduced a large island in the middle of the kitchen which not only creates a focal point in the room but also provides the perfect dining area.To read more about this project, head to the link in the bio.
