Such a derelict building may have seemed daunting to many designers but Suzanne immediately saw the fantastic potential: a blank canvas with lots of space. Fast forward a year and the space is now a fabulous open plan kitchen and living area.
Kitchen Design Centre was recommended to Lianne and Wes by their friends and after visiting other kitchen companies they went with Kitchen Design Centre because of their impressive showroom and Suzanne’s ideas and design capabilities.
Lianne knew she wanted a big island and contemporary family space but was open to design ideas. With no existing utilities coming in to the building, they weren’t tied to where appliances or plumbing could be and Suzanne’s first design nailed the brief and required only slight tweaks. She proposed blocking up a window to create more wall space and enabling a full run of tall units which house the Neff ovens and large Liebherr fridge freezer and wine cooler.
A grey theme was chosen and a handle less sleek look in Comet putty concrete opal grey and Cristall carbon metallic was offset with a wooden trim in vintage oak effect. To make the most of the light and airy space, Corian worktops in sparking white were selected.
The kitchen takes on a different look and feel at night thanks to the LED channel handle lighting. To accommodate busy family life, Lianne and Wes also opted for a separate utility and boot room which Suzanne designed to perfectly match the kitchen. A waste disposal and Quooker Flex Tap were also chosen.
Lianne and Wes are delighted with the kitchen, “Kitchen Design Centre were brilliant from Suzanne at the start to the fitters at the end. Despite getting the kitchen in lockdown everything ran smoothly and we’re delighted with the finished space, it really has the ‘wow’ factor and has become the heart of our new home.”

"I loved working on this project. Lianne and Wes have converted the building in to a stunning family home and it was a joy to work on. The cutting-edge contemporary design works perfectly in the building."Suzanne Ryan
