Sometimes clients come into Ekco searching for ideas: but in the case of Mr and Mrs Dick, they knew exactly what they were looking for. They requested a crystal gloss kitchen with medium walnut surrounding panels, and they wanted Sahara beige worktops with medium walnut splash backs.
Perhaps the biggest challenge facing the Ekco team was that there was a PVC trim at the floor level which needed to be replaced close to the back door as it was shorter than needed and there were no longer facings. In addition, the Dick family had very specific requests including soft close drawers and doors.
The first step in creating this kitchen masterpiece was to fix the PVC and bring it up to the correct level while making the kitchen aesthetically more pleasing. From there, we searched for appropriate appliances to match their needs with Siemens and Neff providing all that was needed.
From Siemens, we took a chimney hood, a gas hob, a fully integrated washing machine, a built-in frost free fridge-freezer and an integrated dishwasher. Meanwhile, NEFF provided a single oven and a combi microwave.
Once the appliances were in place, it was all about taking the overall look of the kitchen to a new level. For a polished look we turned to a Blanco top lever mixer; while we added several special features in the form of non-slip mats for drawers, as well as meeting the Dicks’ request for soft close drawers and doors. The result was that we made the best possible use of a compact space while providing plenty of floor space for anyone to work in while preparing food.
“Just brilliant! Our kitchen has it all: I can’t believe it’s ours!”
