A Fresh, Light Contemporary Kitchen for a Renovated Vicarage

When Glenn and Brenda converted their vicarage near Bury, they embarked on a large-scale renovation that took several years and involved living in a caravan on site.

They first approached John Crosby at Kitchen Design Centre in Failsworth with architect’s plans back in 2021. Fast forward two years and a lot of hard work and they now have a stunning Kitchen Design Centre Kitchen which has become the heart of their new home.

It was a visit to the Failsworth showroom that influenced the design of the kitchen. Both Glenn and Brenda liked the colours from a display and adopted all the elements: Laser Soft Pearl Grey units contrasting with Taupe, Organic White Quartz worktops and Light Summer Oak Wood accents. Top of their wish list was the inclusion of open shelves.

They wanted a defined area for display purposes and adopted the shelving idea from one of the displays, asking their builder to build a stud wall to encase the shelving and utilising the light summer oak wood that was used elsewhere in the design.

Appliances were important to the couple and after visiting a Neff roadshow at the Kitchen Design Centre showroom where they got to try a range of Neff appliances, they opted for a Neff Single Oven, Combi Microwave and an induction hob with built-in extractor that they liked from one of the displays. They also chose a Quooker Pro Flex tap in Chrome and as they wanted to keep an existing American Fridge Freezer, John worked this in to the design.

Glenn and Brenda are delighted with the finished kitchen and the whole Kitchen Design Centre team including the fitters. The kitchen is light, bright and inviting and works perfectly in their newly renovated home.

Designer John Crosby says, “I enjoyed this project as I was involved from the outset when Glenn and Brenda brought me architect’s plans. They loved the showroom and our various displays and it was great that they translated many elements in to their eventual design. The finished contemporary kitchen looks fantastic and works perfectly in their new home.”

The Kitchen Design Centre Barrowford is a stunning showroom that occupies three shops on the high street - 4, 5, and 6 Gladstone Terrace.

Mr and Mrs Lowcock recently visited the showroom when they were considering a new kitchen for their busy family home. Mr Lowcock has fond memories of visiting his father’s plumbing shop in 4 Gladstone Terrace, which made the visit quite nostalgic!
The couple chose a Hacker Ravenna Pearl Grey kitchen with bespoke Artista Grey Corian worktops. The main focus of the design was to brighten up the space by using better lighting and natural colors. The addition of practical appliances, including a Quooker boiling tap, made it easy for the multi-generational family to use the kitchen.
