Dr Bartoli from Harrow "We are extremely happy with the final result. The new kitchen, a sort of galley kitchen (4m long and 2.5m wide) is in sage green, pinewood knobs and a very low maintenance laminate worktop in oak colour that goes perfectly with the cabinets. The old kitchen – now family room – has the same style of furniture but in oak finish and antique bronze knobs. We also turned the lower part of one of the pantry units into a little wardrobe for daily use. The utility room was a big problem because the external wall is at an angle: we needed to have it covered with cupboards which needed to be made to measure. A carpenter made the carcass and we bought the same sage green doors of the kitchen with soft hinges and look perfect, while on the other side we fitted some extra cabinets (wall and base cabinets), a sink and the same oak worktop. We also managed to put two old chests of drawers that give a more elegant touch to it all. It’s wonderful for storing all the things that were hanging around the house and with an easy-care worktop and sink we have space for hobbies and gardening without having to interfere with the kitchen itself. It’s tidy and much more elegant than a normal utility room; with some strategic trompe-l’oeil we managed to make it look wider too.
The furniture looks very good and everyone who comes compliments us. It is also solid and so easy to clean and maintain. We particularly like the way the drawers close: with just a little touch they go all the way in by themselves, even the large ones with heavy saucepans inside. We also appreciated very much the flexibility and versatility of the options that allowed us to create three different rooms with very different purposes and looks, while maintaining a harmonic continuity. And of course: the price! Especially thinking of the products we saw in some shops, which looked so-so and for which they asked a fortune, we are very aware we made the right choice. We also need to thank the staff who was very patient and kind; they helped us with the many questions we had, because we were not familiar with the process."
