Although the kitchen is designed for meal preparation and cooking, over the centuries it has slowly but surely become the epicentre of the home with multiple uses as a place to congregate.
At Stonehouse Furniture we understand this, and our kitchen designs reflect the many functions of the kitchen. We work with you to design, make, and install the kitchen that reflects your lifestyle and adds value to your home.
The Modern KitchenThe demands of a modern family means simplicity and practicality are usually top of the list of design requirements. It doesn’t matter if you live in a modern build or character property, a modern kitchen will enhance your home and provide the family hub you need. We combine function and form to deliver a beautiful space with all the countertop space, storage, and appliances you need. We can build in beautiful modern features such as wine rack or a flat screen television. Visit our London showroom where we can share our portfolio of modern kitchens we have installed in the capital and home counties from swanky apartments in Soho to large family residences in Surbiton.
The Shaker KitchenThe Shaker style is immediately recognisable. The Shakers were expert and skilled craftsmen and carpenters, and we emulate that trait in our bespoke shaker kitchens. This fine craftsmanship delivers simplicity and functionality. There is a purposeful lack of ornamentation in a shaker kitchen. Cabinets and door fronts feature recessed panels, light finishes, and minimal hardware. Simplicity does not mean lack of beauty, in fact, it is the beautiful simplicity that embodies the shaker style. All the modern conveniences can be built into a shaker kitchen; they are just cleverly disguised to avoid cluttering up the clean aesthetic. A shaker kitchen is the ideal style when you want something between a modern and traditional kitchen.
The Traditional KitchenA traditional kitchen can provide a change in a modern home or fit equally well in a period property. The beauty of a traditional kitchen is that it can be ornate or simple depending on the look and feel you crave. If you want raised panel doors, ornate mouldings, pilasters and a Belfast sink, you can have them. The traditional kitchen is generally of natural, softer hues with traditional wood for the cabinets. Countertops might be a luxury stone such as granite or marble , or specially chosen tiles. Splashbacks are simple and extra oomph is usually added with under cupboard/shelf lighting. The big difference between a traditional kitchen and a shaker or modern kitchen is the decorative details. Visit our Cotswold showroom to see examples of stunning traditional kitchens.
The Transitional KitchenWhat happens when you can’t settle on a particular style for your kitchen? You want your kitchen to fit your modern lifestyle, you want the clean look of shaker, but you want some of the decorative touches of a traditional kitchen. This is when bespoke kitchens from Stonehouse Furniture really come to the fore. In what is known as a transitional kitchen, we can incorporate the diverse styles you want while maintaining a good aesthetic. The last thing you want when you invest in a handmade kitchen is a hotchpotch of styles that clash rather than work together harmoniously. We can make glass and chrome work with traditional timbers and fancy door furniture work with recessed panels if that is your wish. We can design an island and add in features like tiled splashbacks and a drop down flat screen TV, add in a spice rack or make a breakfast bar. Your transitional kitchen might need to move seamlessly from an adjoining dining room or other space, and we make that happen too.
At Stonehouse we work with you to design the kitchen of your dreams, whatever your style, the size of kitchen, and the type of property. We use the highest quality materials and pride ourselves on our craftsmanship. Please drop into either of our showrooms or browse our portfolio.
