Bespoke Kitchen in Eastville
This birch faced plywood kitchen was designed and made by local bespoke furniture maker Mary Underwood and installed by the team at Practical Women.
Our clients were on a fixed budget so having our team do the plumbing, installation of worktops, cabinets, plinths, doors and shelves, followed by the tiling, meant that we could work simultaneously and avoid the sometimes-expensive delays caused by waiting for other trades to complete their jobs.
The client’s builders had removed a wall so Mary Underwood’s design really made the most of the newly created open plan kitchen dining area.
It turned a narrow galley style kitchen into a larger family kitchen with a horse shoe shaped worktop that created more storage space and almost doubled the worktop area, creating a breakfast bar and lots more cupboard space, accessible from both sides.
The clients wanted a strong colour and so the yellow (which was spray painted to achieve an immaculate finish) complimented the plywood perfectly, with some lovely detail like the pull handles on the doors, the stripey exposed plywood edges and the matching shelves.
To save on budget the clients were happy to complete the tiling after the final plasterwork had dried and do their own decorating.
