Our clients were looking for a kitchen that had an American feel but that would fit into their English home. The Grosvenor collection by Davonport was perfect. The ladder style panelling on the cabinetry gives it a truly luxurious and opulent feel with the size of the room and high levels of natural light allowing for a large amount of a wood as rich as walnut.
The central island in this kitchen features a curved breakfast bar. This creates a lovely space to sit with a coffee whilst friends or family members cook.
Having experienced several trips to the USA our clients were keen to replicate the scale of an American kitchen. The oversized appliances, such as the Sub Zero fridge/freezer (pictured) helps create the feel of an American kitchen/diner.
The stainless steel extractor hood above the range looks beautiful alongside the richness of the walnut cabinetry. The dark granite and warm walnut complement one another with the stainless steel accents in the appliances and canopy providing a lighter tone in the design.
In the centre of the room is a fire place. This adds to the homely atmosphere and gives this American themed space a more British feel. Our clients wanted the kitchen to appeal to the whole family, making it a space to congregate and enjoy time together. Design features like the fire place enhance the cosy feel of the room, making it into so much more than just a place to cook.
The sheer scale of the appliances in this kitchen are plain to see in this image. The Wolf ovens and Sub Zero fridge cover almost the entire wall, making a definite statement in the room.
In keeping with the grand scale of the kitchen, our clients wanted to incorporate the entrance to the utility room into the design of their kitchen.
As well as the large fridge freezer, our clients' kitchen also benefited from two wine coolers. As keen wine enthusiasts, these Sub Zero wine fridges were perfect - providing the ideal environment for our clients collection of fine wines.
The corner drawer in this Grosvenor kitchen is one of our favourite features. Externally it looks like normal drawers but it provides far more efficient storage. A fabulous detail that is typical of Davonport furniture.
