Painted Perfection with Brandt Design

Leading British retailer, Brandt Design, is delighted to unveil a beautiful open-plan kitchen living area in rural Hertfordshire. Ideal for sunshine living all year round, this in-frame Shaker kitchen is the heart of this busy family home with the patio just a footstep away for easy alfresco dining. 

Blending the best of classic style with contemporary cool, the elegant painted kitchen in Dove Grey boasts ample storage with a bank of floor-to-ceiling units and an AGA range cooker. The centrepiece is the island unit cleverly designed with curved corners, to combines a generous food prep area with a breakfast bar as well as a gable end which comfortably seats six for dinner. 

Designed with classic In-frame style doors, this made-to-order cabinetry, is paired with 30mm Berwyn quartz creates a calm and soothing aesthetic throughout the kitchen, blending seamlessly with porcelain floor tiles from the Brandt Collection. Seating in mouth-watering sorbet shades injects a touch of fun and personality, balancing the elegant shades of grey. The theme continues outside with a colourful dining set and loungers by the pool. 

The kitchen was designed to create a highly ergonomic open-plan kitchen/dining/family room which blends indoor and outdoor living. The scheme is functional and spacious, maximising the scenic views of the beautifully manicured gardens. 

The design experts at Brandt Design worked very closely with the client, from initial consultation and design concept for the kitchen and pool house as part of a renovation project for the whole property. 

With a brief to achieve a highly functional kitchen to maximise flexibility for entertaining and casual dining, this modern kitchen scheme embraces some of the latest appliances by Miele including two single ovens, a combination microwave and warming drawer, complete with two Bora Classic hobs with integral extractor as part of the island unit. The cook’s pride and joy is a traditional AGA range cooker with an integrated module to left, comprising a slow cooker and a four ring hob. For added convenience when entertaining, there is a side by side Smeg wine cooler and fridge freezer. 

Scott Davis, Director, Brandt Design, says “We really enjoy exploring new challenges when it comes to kitchen design. This was a great project to work on as we needed to incorporate a pillar into the room and work it into the design. By breaking away from the standard rectangle, we provided plenty of work space for the chef, a cosy spot for guests to perch at the breakfast bar as well as an alternative to the dining table. We clad the pillar to match the work tops and help bring the scheme together. The secret of ensuring a kitchen and living space has longevity is to really understand client’s lifestyle and tailor it to fit their individual needs for many years to come.”
