Transforming Tom and Nidia’s kitchen

Bespoke Kitchen in Horsforth, Leeds

Tom and Nidia’s kitchen is flooded with natural light thanks to two French doors leading into their south-facing back garden. With the benefit of that in mind they chose Farrow & Ball ‘Hague Blue’ for their base units, as a bold contrast to the white work surfaces, and ‘Skimming Stone’ for the wall units and tall units, which would capture that natural light and bounce it back into the room.
To complement the oak theme throughout the rest of their home, Tom and Nidia chose solid oak corner posts polished in a clear lacquer with oak LVT plank flooring. These two elements add warmth and sophistication to the overall backdrop, invoking a sense of natural beauty and making for a striking contrast between the honey-tinted wood and the Farrow & Ball colours.
One of the trickier aspects of the design was to incorporate the extractor housing / bridging unit into the supporting structural beam above it, without it looking out of place. This was successfully achieved by being able to design and manufacture the furniture to a bespoke specification and to a standard of workmanship that has resulted in the two structures merging together seamlessly and to good effect.
Tom and Nidia chose Fugen ‘Avalanche’ composite quartz for their work surfaces which contrasts beautifully with the darker Hague Blue in the base units and complements that colour with the hints of blue & grey emanating from the marbling detail. Because they wanted a white sink with two large bowls they chose a Clearwater Nova Quarex NOV N200 composite, which was under-mounted to the white quartz work surface, allowing these two elements to fuse and flow seamlessly into each other to create an aesthetic that evinces minimalist simplicity.
The centre-piece of the kitchen is the Butler’s Pantry, sporting two oak spice racks on the inside of the doors, an internal drawer pack with scooped-handle drawer fronts and a composite quartz worktop whereon to store the kettle and toaster, along with a coffee maker, a juicer and such like. This is where breakfast can be prepared and contained, allowing the work surfaces in the rest of the kitchen to remain clean and untouched at a time of the day which is usually the most hectic for this very busy family.

"The quality of craftsmanship was obvious"

Like most people we shopped around and we chose Mother Hubbards on the design which John produced. It was the only one which handled the awkward beam to give a beautiful balance. It was evident he had an appreciation for aesthetics as well as functionality and attention to detail. We got the impression that he really thought about the design at length and came up with fantastic advice. Richard, the fitter, was very skilled and the quality of craftsmanship was obvious. You could tell he took much pride in his work. Minor snags were quickly and professionally resolved. Many thanks to all the team, we are enjoying spending much time in our beautiful new kitchen.
