A Family Kitchen in South West London

If you have already lived with the space you plan to renovate, you will be armed with a knowledge of the room – how the natural light moves, the things you love about it and the bits you want to improve giving you confidence in the changes you wish to make. This was very much the case when we worked with our client on their kitchen in a 1930s home in New Malden, South West London.  The family of four had lived in the house for eight years, by then determined to create ‘the kitchen of our dreams’ they said when speaking to House Beautiful magazineWe designed a slimline peninsula as it was important to have a place where the children could perch, but also worktop space that could be used for a serious cooking session. The front of the peninsula is Elm wood veneers, which are picked up on two cupboards on the back wall – the richly patterned grain feels dramatic in this kitchen, as it sits next to delicate Powder Pink pink tiles by Mandarin Stone and soft Brockwell Moss green on the rest of the Pluck cabinetry.
