We are very proud show off this, our latest Handmade in Hitchin project, showcasing how a bang up-to-the-minute kitchen can look timeless and contemporary in equal measure. The smart, handless style is the perfect choice for a busy family that like to entertain, as all the essentials are kept hidden behind the push-to-open doors and drawers.
Carefully designed with balance and symmetry in mind, the run of tall cabinets places the Miele ArtLine ‘Touch2Open’ handleless oven at the centre with fridge and freezer either side. Note, the break front detail at the centre of this run to create interest in an otherwise flush wall of cabinets. At either end there are large, capacious cupboards with retractable fold-away doors and drawers.
We particularly love our clients’ colour choices where the rich tones of the cabinets in Farrow & Ball’s Downpipe and kitchen island in F&B’s Railings are beautifully offset by the wall colour in India Yellow and the touches of copper throughout the kitchen. Altogether, a palette that is warm and welcoming!
A couple of classic Planet features are the oh-so-glam Drinks Cabinet with Antiqued Mirror backing glass and the Breakfast Cupboard – a popular choice for keeping breakfast essentials both accessible and tidy. They both have the same granite worktops, inside, to match the Black Fusion Satinato Granite worktop of the kitchen island.
Keeping it contemporary, the island worktop and top edges of the doors and drawers have a ‘shark nose’ edge detail and the clever, Caple Black Glass & Copper Downdraft Extractor on the island means the Neff Induction Hob can work effectively without an overhead extractor.
The connecting Utility Room continues in the same Handless style and colour palette, creating a seamless additional space. See how the tall unit with retractable door cleverly hides away the free standing washing machine and tumble dryer. Our client chose a Technistone Quartz in Gobi Grey for the work top, in this room, for it’s practical, hard-wearing qualities
Other important details are the Euro Cave built-in Wine Cooler, the Caple Sinks & Taps in a Copper finish and all the Miele appliances are ArtLine ‘Touch2Open’ Graphite Grey.
