The customer’s house in North London was a large, Victorian house, recently converted to three separate floor apartments with lots of beautiful, original features. The owners were renovating whilst also ensuring that it was in keeping with the style of the building. Unlike many home owners who would have chosen to increase the size of the kitchen by knocking through walls and walkways to create a large kitchen-diner, the owners felt that they wished to retain the original features of the house and not lose the character. They benefitted from a large lounge that would easily allow for a dining table just outside the internal kitchen doorway. Their focus was on making their smaller kitchen work for them by ensuring it was keeping with the rest of the décor in the house.
The customer wanted a space saving, functional kitchen to utilise the space available. They chose to source their own electrical appliances (oven, extraction unit, fridge freezer, Villeroy & Boch Belfast sink unit), so requested that the Mudd & Co team design around the size specifications.

Following discussions with the customer, the Mudd & Co team visited the Victorian apartment to measure the space available and to ensure all questions had been covered. Our in-house designers then created a line drawing of the available space, in addition to a visual CAD representation of the planned bespoke kitchen as agreed with the customer. This was then sent to the customer for approval. On customer sign off, work orders and design drafts were passed to the workshop to meticulously handcraft the kitchen to spec. Lead time on this project was approximately 4 weeks from the sign off of the visual plans. Delivery was made by Mudd & Co, whilst the kitchen was installed by the customer’s builders who were finishing the brick work and window installation at the property.
