“We need more worktop space!” Mr and Mrs Kennedy, from Murieston, were always happy with the general layout of their beautiful and spacious kitchen. However, they were desperate for more worktop space and used the opportunity of refitting their kitchen to upgrade a host of kitchen appliances.
Ekco’s designers had to find a way to incorporate suitable appliances that would offer additional storage space. This would then free up room for the Kennedy family to enjoy further worktop capabilities. As such, we turned to the Pronorm kitchen brand and looked to Axiom for the new worktops.
The pictures opposite show what was achieved by the Ekco team and if you’re wondering about the appliances used then look no further than the Siemens brand. The kitchen includes a Siemens extractor hood, Siemens flex induction hob, Siemens compact multi-function oven with microwave and self-cleaning function, an integrated built-in larder fridge and an integrated built-under freezer. In addition, it includes a Siemens integrated dishwasher with a Quooker hot water tap.
Of course, the worktops were the focus. To create more space, we looked for a flex induction hob with drawers underneath: while the fridge that was chosen has its own built-under freezer.
With plenty of room freed up for extra worktop space, all that was left to do with this Murieston kitchen was to add the finishing touches. These came in the form of a Samuel Heath twin lever tap in polished chrome; a Carron single bowl sink in stainless steel; and matt champagne and light rift oak furniture with a white laminate worktop to give Mr and Mrs Kennedy all of the preparation space they longed for.
“Finally we have the space we wanted: and the design is absolutely brilliant too!”
