The White Kitchen Company worked with both Vicky and the architects to design a bespoke galley kitchen that wouldn’t compromise on storage despite the space not being huge. To create the illusion of a larger, more airy, space, no wall hung cupboards were included in the final design. Dark base cabinetry, clean light walls, and work surfaces with minimal clutter keep the space looking fresh and light-filled.
During the early Georgian period, strong, dark colours were favoured over lighter colours. However, dark walls can often make a room feel smaller and more intimate, so it was decided that only the bespoke Shaker-style cabinetry would be painted in Lamp Black by Little Greene. Lamp Black is a beautiful warm black, which brings the space to life when natural light enters the room. The Grade II status and irregular angled walls meant bespoke cabinetry was necessary to accommodate the idiosyncrasies so common in period buildings, as well as the existing architectural details such as dado rails, sash windows and structural walls.
