The old kitchen, which possessed many of the dark, cramped qualities of the original property, was in desperate need of a makeover.
So, with the combination of their own design skills and the sensitive approach of designers at Kitchen Design Centre, the O’Tooles managed to create their perfect designer kitchen.
The room was transformed from a small and relatively dark area into a light, spacious and modern room with lots of personality.
With the intention of creating a modern, luxurious room, the O’Toole family wanted their new kitchen to be incredible. And they wanted to include helpful appliances to assist them with day-to-day living and entertainment.
Louise O’Toole said: “Our old cottage-like kitchen was in desperate need of a makeover. So we spoke to one of Kitchen Design Centre’s designers.
“Roger Astin came up with several design ideas – which we carefully considered before settling on one scheme which seemed to tick all the boxes. These ideas were developed in much more detail.
“The scale of accuracy, and the help his team offered, was amazing. Our ideas came to life when we saw their fantastic artwork.”
An extension was created for space and light. Sunshine pours through the new large glass construction – which links to the main kitchen. The new area acts as a large dining area and sunny lounge.
“The walls were knocked through and the whole area came together as one living space,” said Louise.
“The dated and cramped kitchen changed to a spacious, multi-functional and contemporary room.
“Now every time I walk into my kitchen I feel in a better mood.”
The modern kitchen is nothing short of luxurious. There is a multitude of innovative Neff appliances throughout the room – including fridge-freezers which are discreetly concealed side-by-side in an alcove.
There is a Quooker – a permanent boiling water tap – and a coffee machine with its own warming drawer for cups. The room also boasts a multi-functional Circotherm oven and separate combination microwave with another warming drawer for plates or food containers.
Louise said: “Our kitchen is everything I wanted and more. Kitchen Design Centre craftsmen were extremely professional and arrived punctually. They completed the work with diligence and care.”
The couple chose Kitchen Design Centre because of its reputation for design, quality installation and cost effectiveness.
Designer Roger Astin said: “It was a combined effort really because Sean and Louise had some great ideas. It was a fantastic building for us to work in.”
Louise added: “We created more space for the children while at the same time keeping it safe. Overall it turned out brilliantly.
“The help and support Kitchen Design Centre offered was fantastic. We were helped every step of the way.
“I’ve already recommended the company to a number of my friends.”
