**One of Houzz’s most popular kitchens of 2018**


Our clients’ listed Georgian townhouse in Bath was in need of a kitchen makeover. They wanted an eclectic, freestanding look, with a combination of materials and finishes.

Steel, Marble Contemporary Kitchen with bespoke ladder rail

Steel Marble Contemporary Kitchen – The Brief

One of the most remarkable features of this glorious kitchen is the huge, glazed Shaker dresser. It stands at almost 3 metres tall, with a sliding vintage ladder to serve both form and function. The main run of cabinets is wrapped in stainless steel, featuring legs with a mirrored plinth. As well as reflecting even more light into the room, this creates an illusion of a freestanding cabinet.

The Calcatta Medici marble worktop was the perfect choice for the room. It is used not only as a worktop, but a back wall panel and floating shelf, too. We even recessed LED lighting into the underside of the shelf which, along with the displayed artworks, gives a gallery-style vibe to the room.

As the property is Listed, we weren’t able to move one of the now-defunct doors; so we incorporated it into the kitchen design by creating an architectural display alcove.

To create some much-needed food preparation and storage space, we handcrafted a moveable butcher’s block. It fits on the end of the peninsular, pulling the eclectic look together.
