  • Open-plan kitchen diner lounge
  • Island cooking – Bora Classic induction wok, 2x teppanyaki hobs, flex induction hob and downdraft extraction.
  • Kaelo wine chiller built in to table leg

Customer Requirements

The kitchen needed to have the wow factor, using a mix of finishes and stand-out design elements. I created defined areas for cooking and relaxing that were separate from the TV / lounge area but that also blended with it.

The drinks area and breakfast bar, as you enter the space, allows guests to come in and sit down without walking into the main cooking area. The lower height seating is in front of the bi-fold doors, so you can enjoy the view out onto the patio whilst sitting here.

By using curves, I was able to give the island shape and interest, whilst having ample prep, storage and cooking space. I decided to make the lower height seating area into a booth, connected to the island. I specified the lower table to have an electrical supply into the table leg to allow us to plan the Kaelo wine cooler in the centre of the table.

I planned an induction, 2 teppans and 1 wok induction onto the island to make a statement cooking area that gives the client flexibility. I also specified 2 single ovens and 2 warming drawers for large capacity with a mix of functions. Due to the island size we had to look at Corian worktops to achieve no visible joints.

There was a 700mm step in the wall into the kitchen, from where the existing kitchen wall had been. I wanted to plan in front of this to connect the fridge area to the rest of the kitchen, but it only allowed a planning depth of 150mm. This ended up being the perfect spot for the drinks area, to display glasses and wine. I put bronze mirror in the back of these, to match the splashback behind the sink, to give the illusion of depth here. I used matt finishes of walnut veneer and porcelain painted oak on the furniture, and toughened glass tops and mirrored splashbacks to give us reflection next to the matt furniture, creating the mix the client desired.

Contemporary, clean finishes but with the wow factor
Large feature island
Comfortable dining for 8-10 people
Spacious TV and sofa area to relax

Customer Feedback

“Having wanted a new kitchen for 3 years, I had plenty of time to do my homework on finding the right company.
We knew the look we wanted to achieve, so I met with 3 different kitchen companies, several times! All 3 produced designs and gave their time to us, but Four Seasons stood out as the best for several reasons.

Their professionalism, the rapid response from all members of the team, the flexibility to accommodate all of our needs, the attention to detail and finishing touches with the design and the non-pushy manner they all applied were all reasons that I wanted to use them.

We had an extension built that would house the new kitchen, so Four Seasons had to work with the builders, plumbers, electricians, and as plans and measurements slightly changed, as did my mind on several occasions, nothing was ever a problem for Donna and the Team!

Not that I want to do building work again anytime soon, but if I did, I wouldn’t hesitate to use Four Seasons again.

Everyone who comes to our house is blown away by our kitchen, it really is beautiful, functional and individual!”
