This listed, Georgian Townhouse in Bath deserved a kitchen that enhanced and matched its proportions. The clients wanted an eclectic, freestanding look, combining different materials and finishes along with a way to showcase their collectables and crockery.

Steel, Marble Contemporary Kitchen with bespoke ladder rail

Steel Marble Contemporary Kitchen – The Brief

One of the main features of the kitchen is the huge glazed Shaker dresser which is nearly three metres tall and incorporates a sliding vintage ladder. The main run of cabinets are wrapped in Stainless Steel and feature legs with a mirrored plinth sitting behind them, creating a free standing appearance and reflecting light back into the room.

The Calacatta Medici Marble worktop echoes the period beauty of the room and is also used to form a back wall panel and floating shelf, used to display the clients’ collection of vintage accessories and artwork. LED lighting is recessed into the underside of the shelf.

As the property is listed, the door that had been used to access the kitchen before the room was opened up couldn’t be moved, so it was blocked up and cleverly incorporated into the kitchen design creating an architectural display alcove.

To create some extra needed food preparation and storage space, a movable butchers block was made which fits on the end of the peninsular and echoes the more traditional look of the the dresser, pulling the the eclectic look together.

Our clients are enjoying their kitchen and will feedback soon

Charlie Draper, Designer

Charlie Draper was the lead designer on this project and Charlie really enjoyed working on a project with stainless steel cabinets as using mix materials provided an extra challenge to the project.
