Luxurious Deseo Kitchen
Deseo Kitchen by Meridien Interiors
Our customer was moving into a new build with his family, and tasked us with creating them a beautiful yet functional kitchen. There was a large space to work with and our designers had limitless options. After coming down to our showroom and office, our customer was inspired by what he saw. He saw the bold colour choice of charcoal against the coolness of partridge grey and knew that’s what he wanted.
Knowing they had a rich colour tone to work with, our designers had to find a kitchen door that would continue the luxurious theme. They decided on a Deseo door, and more specifically the Burlington door from their Audley collection. A door with a smooth painted finish, the Burlington doors marries the classic with the contemporary. Every detail is important when designing a kitchen, even down to the handle choice. Our designers decided that a warm rustic style handle would add to the rich tone of the kitchen, and a PWS Pewter effect knob handle was chosen.
In keeping with a traditional English kitchen, external moulded plinths were added to the design. It is a classic design that is often seen with an in-frame door and adds a feeling of class to the kitchen. We needed to make this kitchen functional as well, it needed to cater to family life. We custom built the medium larder unit with bespoke glazed top boxes, to provide a large, attractive storage area. Along that same wall we added a Franke peak undermounted, stainless steel sink with a Minerva Helix 3 In 1 Kettle stainless steel tap . This provides hot, cold and 100°C boiling water. Safety is assured with a two-step safety handle, while fully insulated spout and handle ensures that they both stay cool to the touch.
The striking island has a 40mm solid oak worktop, which adds warmth, homeliness and character. The benefits of a well maintained solid wood worktop are many, looked after properly it can last you a lifetime. Solid wood allows for those little mishaps in the kitchen, a solid wood worktop can be made to look as good as new. Dents can be filled; stains and scuffs can be polished out or sanded down and re-oiled. The most unusual aspect of a solid wood worktop is that it will look better with age, the colour will deepen and with its own unique wood grain patterns, the worktop with be truly exceptional.
With storage draws and cupboards on both sides of the island, our designers cleverly reduced the depth of cupboards at one end. Allowing a seating area to be utilised, while also maintaining a functional cupboard. The Deseo kitchen doors in charcoal add a timeless effect to the finish of the island, contrasting it with the rest of the kitchen.
One of the biggest aspects of any kitchen is the appliances. The most eye-catching appliance in this kitchen is the Rangemaster – Hi-Lite 110cm Range Cooker. A fresh and modern design, this Rangemaster had been engineered to be functional and aesthetically pleasing. Features include a newly improved single piece hotplate resulting in increased pan space as well as robust cast iron pan supports, perfectly complementing the hotplate finish. Ordered in black with a chrome finish, it complements the charcoal Deseo doors. The oven is a Neff compact oven with microwave, and is accompanied by a warming draw in stainless steel. The fully integrated dishwasher is also Neff and is invisible when closed with a Deseo partridge grey door as its cover.
We worked closely with our customer to create a kitchen that was both aesthetically pleasing and fully functional. We went with Deseo as they are known for their fantastic quality and luxurious feel. We wanted this kitchen to be high-end, something we achieved by using only the best material for the job. From the solid oak worktop to down to the pewter handles, everything was specifically designed to give this kitchen character. We are extremely pleased with the end result, as is our customer.
