Good Homes Magazine to feature Beau-Port Kitchen

Another Beau-Port designed and installed kitchen will be featured in a national magazine later this year. The popular ‘Good Homes’ magazine will be publishing a case study on one of our Shaker style bespoke kitchens, installed in a recently extended house. So look out for the December issue of the magazine, which will be on sale from early November.

The interiors publications are eager to feature as many open plan, living, cooking, dining kitchens that have well designed kitchens and our client Liz Burleton kindly agreed to being interviewed by one of the magazine’s leading feature writers.

Our head designer Mark Johnson had to taken into account all the aspects of the Burleton family’s lifestyle and how they wanted to use the new kitchen and how it would sit in the extended space.

Here you can see how Mark designed the kitchen to have the food storage close to the island where Mrs Burleton prepares her meals.

There were a number of things on Liz’s wish list which Mark planned into the new space.

“We are so pleased that we decided to extend and to have Beau-Port to do the kitchen design and fit. One of the many things that I love about my new kitchen is the way that Mark has designed it with everything so easy to hand when preparing meals and cooking. The way that he located the large fridge, a separate large freezer and a large larder unit close to the central island, which also has a handy sink, with lots of storage in the island so that I have everything I need is all in one area,” commented Liz.

A visit to the Beau-Port showrooms gave Liz and her husband Simon some further ideas, including the chopping board storage unit which Mark planned into the central island space.

“We liked Mark’s clear ideas and his 3D design gave us a much better view of how the finished kitchen would look. He is a great problem solver and came up with really good ideas, visiting us a number of times to make sure that his design was just right for our family and how we wanted to use the space,”

The kitchen, dining, living area was a big space to fill with a vaulted ceiling and lots of light coming from above and from the large doors overlooking the garden, so the cherry red Falcon 1092 Continental induction range cooker and the Farrow and Ball colours on the kitchen furniture, painted in Pavilion Grey on the island and Old White on the wall furniture created the additional warmth that Liz was looking for.

This bespoke sideboard features a lacquered oak slatted base with a small drawer at the top. Painted in Pavilion Grey to match the kitchen, topped off with 30mm oak worktop.

Beau-Port also designed further bespoke furniture, made by their skilled craftsmen, for the area which complement the fitted kitchen unit style, including a bespoke dresser unit and console table.
