Sally’s Stoneham kitchen with Gardiner Haskins

I can describe Sally and Peter’s kitchen as nothing less than deluxe. As I observed the freshly renovated room, I could appreciate how much time and consideration was put into the design. Natural light seeped in through the large, crittall-style doors resulting in a bright, open, and welcoming space.

The plan was to extend the kitchen and include a central island. Sally also desired a “free flowing” space which Alec helped her achieve with cabinets running along only one side of the kitchen to create more space on the other side. It also feels very social, perfect for “having friends round to sip wine while I cook dinner”, according to Sally.

The house was brimming with pink tones. An excellent choice for the décor, really making the interior pop. From pink pineapples to beautiful bouquets, she had it all. So understandably, she fell in love with the pink island we had on display in-store, and it simply had to be part of her new kitchen. To compliment the subtle pink, Alec suggested navy blue and gold to complete the colour palette. 

The gold brings warmth to the kitchen, as well as a touch of luxury. The handles contrast nicely against the blue and pink cabinets and match the gold tap, chairs, lights, and plant pots. To finalise the golden aesthetic, Sally has a gorgeous selection of gold cutlery. 

By far, Sally’s favourite feature of her new kitchen is the built-in, double door pantry and from a glance inside, you can see why. The storage of her dry food is impeccably organised, either in glass containers or placed strategically in drawers giving a minimal and uncluttered appearance. Additionally, the pantry fits the microwave, scales and coffee machine meaning space is freed up on the counter tops.

Peter’s favourite feature would be the built-in plug sockets which blend seamlessly into the kitchen island. The intelligent design means they are hidden beneath the surface and need to be gently pushed in order to flip round and be revealed. 

The induction hob is the ‘Nexus’ by Rangemaster. It’s easy to use, clean and is generally safer which is convenient for when the nephews visit. The rest of the kitchen appliances are by Neff, a range our designers work closely with to supply our customers with the very best products.
