Bespoke furniture designer The Wood Works recently introduced what they call ‘The Chelsea Kitchen’, a modern take on the shaker kitchen – but what makes ‘The Chelsea’?
The Chelsea Kitchen features classical front-framed cabinetry, but with an imaginative and explorative use of colour. The use of soft grey paint has been successfully blended with Farrow & Ball’s Railings, a softer shade of paint that provides an alternative to black, to create a kitchen island that immediately commands your attention.
Open shelving features prominently in the Chelsea Kitchen as part of the kitchen island; allowing the homeowner to showcase their tableware and accessories, creating a warm and inviting atmosphere.
While a kitchen island functions as an informal eating area and a place to pop those everyday items, it is also used for food preparation and cooking. So to keep the clean lines and tranquil feel, a discreet downdraft extractor has been fitted that can easily be stored away when not in use so that it doesn’t distract from the overhead lighting feature.
When it comes to the cabinets, each of the doors is set into a frame with a visible hinge. This helps to tie in the various chrome elements of the kitchen – a must-have metallic in any modern kitchen.
The bespoke nature of the Chelsea Kitchen means there are plenty of opportunities to customise the cabinetry with cleverly hidden features such as a tandem pull-out larder system and solid oak drawer boxes for both cutlery and pans or tableware.
