All spec­tac­u­lar homes

Cheshire Life - - The Edit -

need an equally spec­tac­u­lar kitchen to match, and that’s ex­actly what Diane Berry and her team de­liv­ered for a client in Hale. His 18,000-square-foot prop­erty com­bines min­i­mal­ist Scan­di­na­vian in­flu­ences with the feel of a Mediter­ranean Villa, and it boasts ex­trav­a­gant over-sized doors and high ceil­ings; the brief was for a kitchen that would bring these styles to­gether whilst act­ing as the focal point of a big open plan space.

Diane worked closely along­side the client to come up with a de­sign that would truly tick all the boxes – the fi­nal re­sult fea­tures Eg­gers­mann units made out of stone, which gives a strik­ing fin­ish whilst en­sur­ing qual­ity and crafts­man­ship of the high­est pos­si­ble stan­dard. What’s par­tic­u­larly im­pres­sive about this de­sign is that it’s easy to for­get you’re in a kitchen al­to­gether: there are no clunky cup­board han­dles on show, and the ap­pli­ances are all skil­fully hid­den away to cre­ate a ver­sa­tile, stylish space that is ideal for en­ter­tain­ing guests. How­ever, it’s cer­tainly not a case of form over func­tion. Diane’s de­signs were care­ful to en­sure that the space was use­able with well thought-out er­gonomics, even down to the po­si­tion­ing of the taps and the rub­bish bins. Thanks to this painstak­ing at­ten­tion to de­tail, the client can cook and pre­pare meals here with ease.

Through­out the project, the client was also im­pressed with Diane’s hands on ap­proach: she would reg­u­larly be on-site with a tape-mea­sure in hand to en­sure that every­thing fit­ted per­fectly down to the last mil­lime­tre, which helped to make the process as seam­less as pos­si­ble. Her team worked in close co­he­sion with the builders, pro­vid­ing the client with every bit of re­as­sur­ance that things were be­ing taken care of.
