The customer’s house in West Hampstead in the London Borough of Camden was a beautiful townhouse, benefiting from large open windows, bright illuminated rooms and high rise ceilings. The owners, being highly sociable and regularly playing host to dinners with friends, wanted the small kitchen to be as functional as possible, with a strong focus on efficient movement around the kitchen work triangle between the sink, cooker and fridge. They also had the requirement for a small dining or work space to create a versatile kitchen for the whole family to use. With one internal door leading into the hallway, the kitchen had become an area where visitors would gravitate and, due to the owners’ love of culinary creation, a lot of utensils and equipment needed to be kept out of sight.
The customers wanted the maximum amount of storage space to utilise the size of the kitchen. They wanted the space to be a functional but beautiful design, with an area for both dining and entertaining. To take the hassle out of finding suitable appliances, the customers asked Mudd & Co to source for them.
Kitchen Unit Choices
Six double door wall units in varying widths; curved shelving unit; corner units with carousal; tall narrow shelving unit; three drawer unit with cutlery insert; extractor hood door; kitchen island and wine racks.
Following the initial conversation, Mudd & Co visited the West Hampstead property to measure the kitchen. Due to the customer brief’s emphasis on utilising space and providing a functional kitchen, our designer also took the height measurements of the room – 3200mm. This encouraged him to utilise the additional space above the usual kitchen cabinet height for storage of the customers’ cooking equipment. To further maximise use of the space, an integrated bin and corner unit with carousals for deep units was also planned in. The customer a small, black american walnut kitchen island with integrated wine rack and sourced their own seating. Granite worktops completed the look. The drawings below show the initial ideas put forward to the customer, which were accepted immediately. Mudd & Co then sourced suitable appliances including the extractor, slide and hide cooker, integrated dishwasher, washing machine and a complementary ceramic sink with left hand drainer.
