All spectacular homes
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.
