An Industrial Style Bespoke Kitchen By Burlanes

October 2018

As part of an entire home renovation of their 1920s town house in Chelmsford, Essex, Sophie and Chris Hoxton created their dream kitchen by adding a side return extension to the family home. Not only did this create more space, it also opened up the back of the house, allowing natural light to flood the room. Having relocated to Chelmsford from London, the couple wanted to bring a touch of their London lifestyle to their new kitchen, and commissioned Burlanes to transform the space.

Originally a room for just cooking in, the kitchen has come a far cry from its initial purpose, and is now designed with so much more in mind. Depending on the size of the room and the available space, you may wish to combine your cooking area with your dining and living zones, or you may wish to separate each room entirely. Before finalising your kitchen design, it is important to research and get to know the most common kitchen layouts, and ensure you choose the right one for your space.
