Traditional With A Contemporary Twist

Even though the growing trend seems to be towards more contemporary styled kitchen units, those preferring the more traditional look are still seeking out up to date design features with cleaner more simple lines. For those who want traditional styling without the clutter and fuss, handmade solid wood units that are simply waxed to show the beauty of the wood or hand painted and Shaker-style, appear to be the preferred choice.

This was the ideal option for the Oldham family from Surrey when they presented their outline ideas to Beau-Port. "Mark transformed our rough idea into amazing results," commented Janet Oldham. "We were impressed with his great attention to detail and practical ideas such as raising the worktops to suit our height and suggesting the curved unit on the end which gives a much more spacious and softer look. He also allowed enough space for us to put a chair there just by the French doors to the garden, which is a lovely place to sit and relax and enjoy the view. Other kitchen companies we looked at presented very standard designs, but Beau-Port created a very individual design for us."

The Oldham's had two rooms knocked into one to make a larger more open plan space and a utility room created at the back of their garage. The total project took 8 weeks. "We were amazed to see the kitchen and utility room completed by Mark and his team in under 5 days and was the easy bit of the project.

"I love the central island and the dresser at the end of the kitchen that Mark designed with its solid oak worktop and the two full-size Bosch ovens and induction hob have made cooking so much easier. My husband says we are now spending so much more time together in the kitchen - it really is the perfect place to be. We love the lighting that Mark suggested and the colours which were influenced by our choice of granite worktop that we saw in the Beau-Port showroom, which complement the Karndean limestone flooring which is so easy to clean," concluded Janet Oldham.
