Wendover Kitchen



A Shaker galley kitchen in a converted schoolhouse

This long galley kitchen was designed for clients that wanted a space that reflected the beauty of their converted schoolhouse in Buckinghamshire. The original kitchen in the property was small and dark so we removed the original low ceiling to expose the beamed vaulted ceiling above. This visually increased the aspect, making it feel twice the size and gave the room a stunning traditional look.

We designed and made all furniture which was hand-painted in Farrow & Ball colours. We included a long run of framed hand-painted tall cabinets with stopped chamfer detailing on the doors in which a bank of Siemens ovens is housed with a warming drawer.

To complement the black-painted beams, all the worksurfaces are featured in gloss black granite with a cut out for a double undermount sink.

At the far end of the kitchen is an integrated dresser with decorative shelving and a deep red glass splashback. On the other side of the kitchen a solid oak breakfast bar was added, with seating beneath that looks out to the garden. In keeping with shaker styling, Cotswold ball knobs were used for the cupboards while drawer pull cup handles were used for the drawers.
