A Modern Country Kitchen

October 2016

A light-filled extension on a country cottage transformed a small kitchen into a bigger family functional and sociable space. Our clients love their beautiful country cottage located in the countryside on the edge of Canterbury but needed more space. They built an extension and burlanes created a country style kitchen that maintained the integrity of the property with some elegant modern additions.

If you’re going to splash out on one thing for your country kitchen, a range cooker is the perfect choice. The British-made AGA is a heritage appliance and available in a variety of designs and colours, like this Duck egg blue, three-oven model.

The bespoke handmade burlanes kitchen units are a classic country style, but the introduction of Cosentino quartz helix worktops gives the kitchen design a contemporary edge.The splashback is made of the same silestone quartz as the worktops producing a seamless finish.

This standalone kitchen dresser, custom built and hand painted in the burlanes workshop helps create the same bespoke, laid-back ambience of a country kitchen that was historically made up of separate pieces of furniture.

In this kitchen design there was also space for a walk in kitchen larder. A stylish and practical storage solution for food, kitchen ware and appliances - the perfect addition to this space! Elegantly finished with encaustic floor tiles.

The central kitchen island ties the room together. A work area to prepare meals, sit, socialise and look out to the garden and beautiful Kent countryside beyond.
