WELCOME
A
house is not a home without
love. Love among the people
who share their lives in
this precious space - past
and present - love for the treasured
memories that are held within its walls
and the love given in making a home
warm and inviting for all.
So, what better way for us to celebrate the month of love than
with some stunning kitchens and bathrooms harnessing the most
romantic colour on the spectrum - red. See Love is all you Need
(p80) to get your heart racing.
For some undying love, we?ve rounded up a fantastic collection of
galley kitchens ? the ever-popular design that has its origins in the
restricted space of a ship but has evolved to work in rooms of all
sizes, All Aboard! (p58).

?? Retro perfection
After going back to the drawing board, this
gorgeous space features a contemporary kitchen
that mirrors architectural shapes beautifully.
This galley kitchen demonstrates that you
can achieve a look that's both practical
and big on style even in a small space.
?In addition to the more sensual side
that red is associated with, it also exudes
adventure, conidence, excitement and
power. Whichever way you put it, this
colour is full of emotion,? observes
Maria Gratsova, creative director for
interior design consultancy, Bright
Designs (brightdesigns-id.com)
?Homeowners can struggle with its
intensity, worry that they will tire of
it too soon, or simply not know how
and where to introduce it. Unless you
intend to make a bold statement, red is
the sort of decor element that falls into
the ?a little goes a long way? category.?
UTOPIA KITCHEN & BATHROOM FEBRUARY 2019
?? Luxury living
A high-function kitchen is created around dramatic
architectural features to stunning effect.
It?s only natural that you expect nothing but the best
- when your husband runs a kitchen design company.
REAL HOME
?A great area just to sit, eat and chat to
the point we have not itted the planned
TV as we naturally just talk and listen
to music. It?s changed our way of living
at home for much the better ? you
couldn?t wish for more than that!?
?? Country feel
A kitchen in London blends tranquility and
style with organised and spacious work spaces
to create a homely, country-style feel.
STYLE/DESIGN/TRENDS
??
?? All aboard
Single, double or evolved to work in
open-plan layouts, the galley kitchen is
a design that is still going strong.
?? Love is all you need
kitchen with a furniture style, using inspiration
from the couple?s mid-20th century pieces
featuring walnut with antique brass handles.
?It matched our brief exactly - a kitchen with the
furniture look that naturally blended in as part of the
room while delivering a real wow factor!? says Chris.
The bespoke kitchen was made with a walnut veneered
carcass with solid walnut lippings. The doors were
made from walnut veneer with an exposed ply edge,
antique brass inger bar and a lat lacquer inish
to give the wood a raw texture. Shelving was also
created from solid walnut with antique brass detail.

It ranks as one of the top two favourite

Luxury
Living
Characterful eaves with deeply arched
window embrasures give this room
great presence, but it required expert
planning to design and build a highfunction kitchen around such dominant
architectural features. Custom-built by
DesignSpace London, the kitchen is in
the penthouse of a luxury development
in West London by Fusion Residential.
At its heart is the spectacular central
island, clad in vein-matched natural
marble, giving the look of a monolithic,
sculpted block. The hob is positioned
on the island, making cooking a social
activity, with steam and odours eliminated
by a powerful in-ceiling extractor.
The black marble and bronze-framed
breakfast bar at the end of the island
forms another sculptural block. Cabinetry
from Modulnova?s Fly collection runs
along a whole wall, tapering elegantly
down into the eaves at one end. A large
walk-in pantry through a door makes
great use of a quirky space in the
eaves, with shallow shelves for storage.
Drawers and cupboards are on a grand
scale, keeping surfaces clutter-free
and enhancing the minimalist feel.

I
After several fruitless and frustrating months
searching for a company to create a kitchen
that was in tune with their interior style
vision, the couple came across McCarron &
Co and senior designer Richard McGee.
n spite of their London location, Chris and
Cheryl were adamant they didn?t want an urban
look for a kitchen that was to take centre-stage
in a new extension for their 1930s-style house.
The property features an original bathroom,
d閏or and furnishings from the era, and they
were keen to retain a soft feel throughout.
?We didn?t want German urban styling, which we
thought too harsh and cold for our house and
what we wanted to achieve,? explains Chris.
?We wanted a warm, inviting, contemporary kitchen
that looked like furniture, blended with our retroinluenced furnishing so it became the focal point
while remaining part of the room; a comfortable,
social place to spend time with friends and family.?
Richard continues, ?They wanted something
different from the usual Germanic kitchens
that they had seen in magazines, which they
described as a ?kitchen in an aircraft hangar?.?
However, after several meetings it became
apparent that the couple?s existing plans for a square
extension were restricting the design potential for
the kitchen. With Richard?s advice, they requested
new architectural drawings and planning permission
changing the shape and height of the proposed space.
?We found with Richard someone who
immediately understood the kitchen we were
looking for, and someone who looked at the
bigger picture with suggestions to add an
extra design element to our project, which
greatly improved the overall result and the
setting for the kitchen,? says Chris.
Richard set about designing a contemporary
UTOPIA KITCHEN & BATHROOM FEBRUARY 2019

kitchen with a furniture style, using inspiration
from the couple?s mid-20th century pieces
featuring walnut with antique brass handles.
?It matched our brief exactly - a kitchen with the
furniture look that naturally blended in as part of the
room while delivering a real wow factor!? says Chris.
The bespoke kitchen was made with a walnut veneered
carcass with solid walnut lippings. The doors were
made from walnut veneer with an exposed ply edge,
antique brass inger bar and a lat lacquer inish
to give the wood a raw texture. Shelving was also
created from solid walnut with antique brass detail.

?The shape of the island drew its inspiration from
the architecture. It follows the same angled back
of the extensions and the pitched roof. This also
created the extra space for two people to cook at
the same time without knocking into each other
which is usually dificult in a galley style kitchen.?

The shape of the island drew its inspiration
from the architecture, following the same angled
back of the extension and the pitched roof.
?This also created the extra space for two
people to cook at the same time without
knocking into each other,? explains Richard.
The main challenge to overcome was extraction over
the island due to the pitched ceiling. A Bora induction
hob with an integrated extractor provided the solution
without obstructing the clean lines of the space.
The Caesarstone concrete worktop is both practical
and aesthetically pleasing, co-ordinating with a
hexagonal concrete loor tile. A combination
of wall and ceiling-mounted task lighting, a
recessed LED light strip for the shelves and
hanging pendants provides the perfect balance
between functionality and ambience.
?It was quite a challenge due to the glass roof
above the cooking area,? observes Richard. ?We
had to be quite creative with location and type of
lighting to ensure it created the right effect.?
And the right effect has been struck
throughout. ?It?s the focal point of the house;
it draws people to the room and they just
want to stay,? says a delighted Chris.
?A great area just to sit, eat and chat to the
point we have not itted the planned TV as we
naturally just talk and listen to music. It?s changed

?If you take a standard galley kitchen to
have a 6ft width and a 12ft length, island
and peninsula counters are rarely an option
in this sort of space. Kitchens need to be
as functional as they are beautiful, and
sacriicing loor space to it an island will
just give an awkward, uncomfortable look.
EXPERT VIEW
Tom Howley,
creative design
director, Tom Howley
?The importance of walkway space
should be a key consideration. When
designing your layout, always leave
a metre of walkway space either
one or two sides of your worktop,
island, or peninsula counter. This
is a functionally and aesthetically
effective dimension to keep in mind.
?In smaller spaces, waist-height, pull-out
drawers are the best option. A waistheight unit means you?ll have access
to copious worktop space that loor-toceiling cabinetry cannot provide in the
absence of an island counter, and lots
of low lying storage units. This will open
up the space at head height to give the
impression of a more spacious kitchen.
?Lighter wood inishes and paint colours
work well to expand the perceived
space of your kitchen. However,
whites and creams are less popular at
the moment, so a great compromise
is a smoky grey scheme, using a
KITCHENS
?Avoid using wall-hung cabinets on both sides as it makes
the walls fall down on you. Instead, try making use of
open shelves or just having wall hung cabinets on one
side. Narrow kitchens are actually very functional as it?s
so easy to get around and you do end up having a lot of
useable worksurface.? Irene Gunter, creative director and founder, Gunter & Co

galley kitchens, can be given a loftier look
if we specify a vertical grain pattern. Or,
we can play to the low-lying cosiness of
the space and use a horizontal grain.
?If you do decide on loor to ceiling
cabinets, these should only be itted with
glass door display cabinets. This will
open up the space in a way that opaque
cabinetry will not in a smaller kitchen.
?Specifying appliances for a galley kitchen
requires careful thought. If you have set
aside the space for a walkway of around
a metre, standard oven or fridge doors will
compromise a considerable portion of that
space when opened. A key tip is to it builtunder appliances. This will provide lots more
workspace, leaving views across the kitchen
at eye level uninterrupted. As a general
rule, don?t sacriice worktop space for an
American style fridge-freezer or tall pantry.
?A key design detail to bear in mind is
the use of vertical versus horizontal
woodgrain. Wildly different looks can be
achieved by using the grain in different
ways. Kitchens with low ceilings, like
?Built-under draw fridges and dishwashers
work brilliantly, as well as ovens with
doors that slip back underneath the oven
itself. Also, for the wine connoisseurs,
built-under wine temperature
regulators look incredibly sleek.
?Another innovative way to keep your
kitchen looking spacious is to do away with
the (very popular) industrial style extractor
units. Hobs with integrated extraction are
on the market today, leaving space above
your hob for extra storage, or a beautiful
splashback or even a piece of art.?

N
arrow corridors and awkward crooks and crannies
can make interesting features, but they also prove
tricky when designing a new kitchen for a small space.
However, choosing the right company with the
creative lair to maximise use of the limited
space available and resisting the temptation to
cut corners will produce a result that?s big on
both style and functionality. And that?s what this
homeowner discovered when they chose Harvey
Jones designer Charlotte Wallace to create a new
kitchen for their Victorian semi-detached house.
??
?The kitchen before was tired, dull and lacked
creativity,? explains Charlotte. ?This meant that the
storage and worktop space suffered massively.?
Aiming for a ?traditional yet crisp and clean? feel to
the style, Charlotte designed a space using cabinetry
from Harvey Jones?s newest range, Arbor, handpainted in oil-based Dulux Egg Shell colour.
?It has a beautiful amount of detailing on the
doors, which gives it a touch of elegance without
being too fussy. Unlike so many other heavily
detailed styles of kitchens, the Arbor still gives
a nice amount of detail, yet its simplicity makes
it so easy to maintain and clean,? she adds.
Bespoke furniture was designed to it around a
number of existing inconvenient elements, including
a ireplace which was to be hidden by the fridge, as
well as a step lanked by two pillars and a boiler.
?The step down into the kitchen was quite
challenging as we had to disguise the pillars either
side of the step as best as possible. The wall
cabinets above the wine fridge house an oldish
boiler, which was positioned at an awkward height.
As the customer was keeping this boiler, we had
to work around it and hide as much as possible.?
A space that was once tired, dull and lacking in
creativity now feels light and airy with the cabinetry
featuring subtle detailing that provides the perfect touch.

?Smaller kitchens require careful planning. It?s
important to maximise every millimetre, so don?t
cut too many corners and end up with a kitchen
which doesn?t work well for the space. Invest and
take the time with your designer to plan it wisely.

The owner also wanted a cabinet to the left
of the fridge to appear full-depth when
in fact it?s a shallow 400mm larder.
Lighting was kept simple and practical but
to great effect; lights under box shelving
and wall cabinets creates a nice ambient
feeling in the evenings, complemented by
a pendant light above the dining table.

something to be proud of and show off to their friends

RED ALERT

Love
is
allyouneed
It?s easy to see why so many fall head over heels
with a shade that commands so much attention.
In terms of global importance,
red is certainly a powerhouse.
It ranks as one of the top two favourite
colours across the planet while more
than two thirds of international lags
display the hue loud and proud. Yet, in
the world of interior design, it?s a colour
that?s not widely spread ? particularly
in the kitchen and bathroom.
A colour that we associate with so many
strong forces and feelings ? passion,
love, heat, energy and danger ? can turn
many of us into shrinking violets when
it comes to d閏or for our homes.
?In addition to the more sensual side
that red is associated with, it also exudes
adventure, conidence, excitement and
power. Whichever way you put it, this
colour is full of emotion,? observes
Maria Gratsova, creative director for
interior design consultancy, Bright
Designs (brightdesigns-id.com)
?Homeowners can struggle with its
intensity, worry that they will tire of
it too soon, or simply not know how
and where to introduce it. Unless you
intend to make a bold statement, red is
the sort of decor element that falls into
the ?a little goes a long way? category.?

So, how can you make a hue that packs such
a punch work for you? Here are Maria?s top tips?
BATHROOM
Exert control
?Bathrooms tend to be spalike serene spaces, sometimes
at risk of appearing lifeless
and monotonous. To inject
intensity and a sense of
romance into the bathroom,
I recommend using red in
a controlled manner.
Vasco?s Carre Half
Round Carmine Red
radiator, �5. vasco.eu
?If you like the idea of red
tiles, then think how the effect
of the colour will be ampliied
by their texture - for instance,
I would keep gloss inish red
tiles to very small areas only.?
Make a feature
?A painted red feature wall, or
a portion of wall, could look
stunning as a backdrop to a
black or brass framed mirror,
alongside some industrial or
Art Deco-inspired wall lights.
A red mosaic (as a splashback
or in the shower) can be very
effective, as the grout lines
will add interest and help
bring the surface alive.?
Mix it up
?A bathroom scheme of red
and white alone can feel a little
harsh and utilitarian. Instead,
you may want to bring in subtle
greys (such as concrete) or go
bolder and pair the red with
one or more different orange
elements to create a simple but
effective analogous scheme.?
Accessorise
?If all this sounds like too
much commitment, but you are
still intrigued, then accessories
may be the way forward. You
may simply wish to add red
towels, a bath mat or candles
to bring a touch of energy and
adventure into your bathroom.?

IN THE KITCHEN
Err on the side of caution
?The overall scale of the space in question is much
larger in case of a kitchen, but again it makes sense to
consider red in the broader context of the scheme,?
advises Maria. ? With changing tastes and practical
requirements, contemporary kitchen cabinet doors
now cover expansive vertical surfaces. I once viewed
a property that had an immense new kitchen in place
(gloss red in its entirety). Nothing wrong with the inish
as such, but the amount was just overwhelming.?
Tone it up
?Two-tone is an increasingly popular look in the
kitchen, and it need not solely manifest itself as one
colour on the base, another on the wall-mounted
cabinets. A similar effect can be achieved by including a
red island, a red splashback or red open shelving. Even
a red retro style fridge - if you are that way inclined would invigorate an otherwise plain space, on its own.?
Red spells hunger
?Red could also work marvellously in a dining area.
The colour is known to stimulate appetite, and
therefore used extensively in restaurants. Furthermore,
the colour is a great background for displaying
artwork. There might be an opportunity to add a red
accent wall to your kitchen/dining area, and use it to
showcase a striking piece of art. The result would be
a comforting and inviting space, especially in the cold
winter months when natural light is harsh and crisp.?
AluSplash Spanish Red
splashback, 900x600mm
or 900x800mm panels,

A rich colour for all seasons
?Historically, red was seen as an expensive colour
(originally due to the processes involved in creating
it). Somewhere down the line it acquired more
of a cheap and tacky reputation, but when used
correctly it most deinitely exudes richness and
luxury. Instead of pairing red with white and/
or black (a stark contrast), I suggest using it with
natural creams and beiges for a much softer result.
?It is also worth noting that in addition to the
intense pure red, there are lighter, darker, duller and
brighter varieties of it. Some variations may be best
used as accent colours, while others are easy to live
with and can safely be employed on large surfaces.
With red in interiors, the romance of St Valentine?s
Day will endure even as the seasons change.?

t?s the bane of parents? lives up and down
the country; how to get the children off their
consoles and spend more time with the family.
Well, one sure way to succeed is to make a new
kitchen a living and entertainment paradise.
That?s what this couple did after they decided to
renovate and extend their three-bedroom house
to provide four bedrooms, a beauty salon and
a grand space for a new open-plan kitchen.
??
?The brief was to create a big open space for
entertaining ? a space for the family to gather and to
encourage more social time. Basically, a space to get
my son off his Xbox ? hence the pool table!? says the
children?s father, who works in the furniture industry.
The dining table that converts into a pool table is
just one ingenious feature in the sleek, contemporary
space that now brings everyone together.
?Our old kitchen was so disconnected from the
rest of the house, so if you were in the living
room, the kitchen was two or three rooms
away. If you were cooking or preparing meals,
you felt isolated from the goings-on in the rest
of the house,? explains the homeowner.
?Also, the old kitchen was a small space, and it
felt dated ? it was a late 80s-style kitchen that
hadn?t been changed for a while. It had none of
the technology or features that we wanted.?
THE designer
?Once you have the inal footprint of the
space, understand what additional elements
you would like to implement in the space
and ensure any larger furniture elements,
such as sofas and tables, all work within
the open-plan area and don?t feel cluttered.?

Such Designs was chosen to design a layout incorporating
a Rotpunkt kitchen, offering myriad options in
terms of units, doors, colours and dimensions.
?The guys at Such Designs came highly recommended;
we?d seen a number of their jobs on social media
and they had a very good website with some great
examples of their work. We had a good feeling from
the irst moment we met them that they?d be able to
create the space we wanted? and they nailed it!?
A Rotpunkt Super Matt Carbon handleless kitchen
was chosen, featuring integrated lighting. Contrasting
liquid metal doors were selected for the fridgefreezer, along with dark carcasses and interior lighting
to boost the monochrome scheme?s moody feel.
?We always wanted a modern looking kitchen and we
always liked the contrast between dark and light ? we
wanted the design to feel crisp. Opting for dark units
and white walls suited our tastes,? say the couple.
?The minimal style and contrast of the units

appliances included a coffee machine which would
double up at parties to serve espresso martinis.
A Bora hob with a built-in extractor that didn?t
disrupt the sleek design, a hardwearing, highly
resistant Dekton worktop and bi-fold doors to
invite the outside in were also on the wish list.
Initially, like many others, the couple wanted an island
but ?as the design progressed, it became clear that a
peninsular would actually work better within our space.
We still managed to keep the breakfast bar seating
area, which was key for us in having a social area?.
Bespoke elements included the bar
area with two pocket-door systems as
well as a display unit for bottles.
A Rotpunkt Super Matt Carbon handleless kitchen

space, while the illuminated bottle display

Suchin comments, ?The bar was the highlight
for sure as, when open and with the pool table, it
creates a lounge feel in the space. When the bar is
closed and the pool table is in dining table mode, we
have a sleek dining area, with the illuminated bottle
display giving a touch of ambience and glamour.?
LED lighting provides the perfect inishing touch
in a scheme that ticks all the couple?s boxes for
aesthetics and function, whatever the time of day.
?I just like the way the space works really, really
well. At any point you can swivel around and
have plenty of worktop space for food prep, the
sink for rinsing things off or cleaning and all the
appliances at your ingertips ? it?s bang on!
?We?re deinitely a more social family and we entertain
more. We enjoy the garden a lot more ? it brings
the outside in. Particularly last summer with the
hot weather, we had the doors open from 7am to
10pm and it was a totally different way of living.?

Going
green
Fuelled by a younger generation of
eco-conscious consumers, demand for
environmentally-friendly kitchens appears
to be growing as fast as the planet spins.
The Loaf extendable Tucker, with
its reclaimed ir top and soft blue
legs, is a lexible one-size-its-all
dining table. �5. loaf.com
It?s a lifestyle trend that
shows no signs of abating.
Pinterest searches and saves on
sustainable terms such as ?eco
kitchens? have been reportedly
rising by 164 per cent, along with
similar surges in ?plywood? and
?organic materials?; indeed, interiors
inspired by nature and respectful to
it in equal measure are hot news.
From using energy-saving appliances
to recycled materials and products
from sustainable sources, there are
many ways to create a kitchen that is
kinder to the planet ? and still ticks
the style and affordability boxes.
?Eco-friendly furniture doesn?t need
to suffer from compromised looks
and a high price tag,? comments
Peter Sanderson, CEO and founder
of The Real Kitchen Company.
The company has recently launched
Real Green, the UK?s irst fully
sustainable kitchen furniture range,
which is handcrafted entirely out of
bamboo ? a material which rapidly
replenishes and is the most eco-friendly
alternative to conventional solid wood.
?If you can offer something that?s
as beautiful and as durable as a hard
wood, along with water-based paint
shades, at a similar price, then I
believe you are very much in tune
with 2019 and today?s customer,?
says Peter, adding that consumers
are becoming increasingly savvy
and wanting to know about the
ecological footprints of products.
?Genuine eco credentials related to
furniture are of increasing importance
to discerning homeowners and I
think the UK kitchen manufacturing
industry needs to wake up to this!?
There are companies that have been
taking notice and some have gone down
the road of making materials last longer.
???
KITCHENS
Matt Phillips, head of UK operations
for German bespoke kitchen
brand Rotpunkt, observes, ?The
need for quality furniture that is
environmentally-friendly remains
a priority for many of us, and as a
result, it is reshaping how the market
is approaching kitchen design in the
modern home to recognise ?resiliency?
as the new ?sustainability?,? he explains.
?This is iltering down in to the
kitchen furniture market, where
durable materials and designs
continue to grow in popularity.?
???
And, once a kitchen is no longer desired,
others have stepped in to provide a
new lease of life, such as the pioneering
The Used Kitchen Company.
CEO Looeze Grossman comments,
?We?ve noticed a greater interest
in clients wanting to buy a used or
ex-display kitchen. This is not just
to get more for their budget but,
more importantly, that they are
keen to recycle/upcycle kitchens to
help the environment as well as it
being an ethically sound choice?.
Over its 13-year lifetime, the company
estimates that it has prevented almost
11,000 tonnes of waste going to
landill, by putting used kitchens on
the market for a fraction of the price
and inding them good homes.
Its kitchens are typically designer
brands, out of the price range
for many purchasers when brand
new, or ex-display models that
have set imaginations alight
when in a showroom.
?Sustainability has deinitely become
a driving factor in people?s buying
decisions and the more we spread
the word and people become aware
that they can recycle a used kitchen
and have it reinstalled to look like
new, proves to us that our Skip the
Skip campaign is truly working.?
If you?re not planning a new kitchen,
there are many ways of making your
kitchen kinder to the planet by buying
appliances with eco credentials.
Luke Shipway, product manager for
Caple, observes that consumers are
increasingly looking for appliances
that do their bit for the planet.
?Laundry appliances with a 24-hour
delay timer, which enable you to take
advantage of less expensive electricity
rates, are high in demand,? he says.
?Energy ratings and wash and spin
eficiency are also playing a role in
deciding which model to choose for
the home. Fast washes, which take no
more than 15 minutes, are important
as this saves water, as are eco cycles.
?For dishwashers, eco cycles which
use as little as nine litres of water are
a fantastic way in which to be more
eco-friendly in the kitchen. Fridgefreezers are now designed with features
that enable food
to last longer and
therefore reduce
wastage, which
is great for the
environment.?
Steam cooking is
also highly energy
eficient as it cooks
food faster at
lower temperatures
than other
methods, he adds.

EXPERT VIEW
Tomas Hinton,
director, Tomas
Kitchen Living
Tomas Hinton, director of Tomas Kitchen
Living, advises, ?One of the main things to
consider when designing an eco-friendly
kitchen is the materials you will use.
Aim to use supplies that are made from
recycled materials, are from sustainable
sources or, at the very least, can be
recycled when you replace them. Try to
also ind something that is hardwearing,
so you won?t have to replace it as often.
???
?Typically, kitchen cabinets are made
from MFC (melamine faced chipboard)
and have edging. This is a low-cost
approach, but as the kitchen ages or is
heavily used, the edging may come away
and doors start to drop as the ixings into
the chipboard become loose and worn.?
Materials to consider, aside from MFC,
include plywood or MDF if they include
recycled materials, stainless steel, which
is often made from salvaged materials,
and cork. ?When using wooden materials,
look for certiication such as FSC, which
guarantees that the wood has come
from a sustainable source, so you won?t
be contributing to deforestation.?
Avoid drawers with plastic parts that
can fall off easily and thin bases
that may sag and drop out.
When choosing doors and panels,
think about high density moisture
resistant board (HDF), which is great
for stability and workability. It is also
obtained from sustainable sources
and can be potentially recycled.
Look out too for paints that are low in
VOC (volatile organic compounds),
countertops that harness environmentallyfriendly materials and energyeficient appliances and taps.
?The advantage of lacquered doors is that
damages can be touched up, repaired
and ultimately completely re-lacquered
for ultimate longevity. This cannot be
said for lower cost laminated doors
with edging. To go greener still, natural
wood veneered doors are an option.
?Another consideration is locality.
By sourcing your cabinets locally
or at least made in Britain, none of
the environmental impact of longdistance shipping is an issue.?

When your husband runs a kitchen design company,
it?s only natural that you expect nothing but the best.
HOMES
THE owners
Howard Stubbs, the joint
founder and managing
director of bespoke
kitchen company,
Heaven & Stubbs, lives
with his wife, Adina,
a TV presenter, and
their children in this
six-bedroom, detached
house overlooking the
Cotswold countryside.
One end of the island incorporates a walnut
chopping block featuring an impressive knife
drawer with bespoke knife handles, while the
opposite end incorporates an integrated seating
area with a glass topped pedestal table.

contrast with a heavily grained Armara
timber, dual-radius end design to
the large multifunction island.
ike many in the trade, it took kitchen company
boss Howard Stubbs more than a while to
get around to tackling his own home.
With his wife, Adina, also busy working as a presenter
for Gems TV, while juggling the demands of their
young children, it was ive years before renovation
and extension plans for their home took shape.
???
But, once underway, the project to double the
footprint of the property progressed at full steam,
with the kitchen, bathroom and bedroom furniture
made at Howard?s Heaven & Stubbs workshops.
When it came to the kitchen, Howard and Adina
wanted to make the most of their home?s views to
the garden and the Cotswold countryside beyond.
The large, extended kitchen and family living
space, with its heavily glazed seating and dining
area does just that, opening out onto a raised
garden terrace. It also serves as an inspirational
space for Adina, a talented musician.
The kitchen furniture is a blend of classical and
contemporary design with its subtle, mirrorembellished, Shaker door design. The cabinetry?s
light colour shade, which relects the abundance
of light from the south facing garden, is deined
with contrasting Titanium Black granite worktops
and a heavily grained Armara timber, dual-radius
end design to the large multifunction island.
One end of the island incorporates an end grain, walnut
chopping block featuring an impressive knife drawer,
while the opposite end incorporates an integrated
seating area with a glass topped pedestal table.
The kitchen furniture is a blend of classical
and contemporary design with its subtle,
mirror-embellished, Shaker door design.
THE designer
?Bespoke, custom-made furniture isn?t just about
working with the interior architecture in terms
of cabinet scale and shape ? it should also be
about practical and often seemingly small details.
Given this, don?t be afraid to challenge your
designer on any aspect of your bespoke kitchen
design ? however large or small ? especially if
you think something could work better for you.?
UTOPIA KITCHEN & BATHROOM FEBRUARY 2019
REAL HOME
?My wife proved to be a tough task master; she knew
exactly what she wanted and, more importantly, she
knew exactly what Heaven & Stubbs are capable of. After
many years of seeing all sorts of customer commissions,
it?s only right she got the kitchen she wanted!?
Howard Stubbs, designer and managing director, Heaven & Stubbs

REAL HOME
The coffee-making and wine storage
cabinet features a gorgeous walnut
interior and space-saving bi-fold doors.
???
The design is not short on detail. For instance,
the cupboard doors and drawer box fronts are set
back and angled from the frame. Lighting has been
integrated into the skirting that gracefully lows
around the base cabinetry and the coffee-making
and wine storage cabinet features a gorgeous
walnut interior and space-saving bi-fold doors.
As the main cook in the family and, in reality,
Howard?s toughest critic, Adina?s opinion is what
really matters. ?I love the look of the kitchen;
I think it suits the interior style of our home
perfectly. However, it also blends function with
form making it easy and practical to use.
?The island, with its large sink and work surface
gives me the perfect food preparation area ? and
I can talk to the kids sat opposite as I cook.
The mirror splashback means I can still keep
an eye on them even when my back?s turned!
?The dual ovens and induction hob provide me with
all the cooking capacity I require. Whether we are
with friends, our children or simply by ourselves,
it?s the place in the home we most like to be.?

UTOPIA KITCHEN & BATHROOM FEBRUARY 2019
Once upon a time,
having a bath was the
least favourite task of
the day for many a child.
With a plethora of better things on
offer to ill the day, personal hygiene
understandably has not been top of
the list for your average youngster.
???
However, designs and products are
making bathtime the highlight of the
day. If you make their bathroom an
enticing, fun and creative space as
well as serving its practical purpose,
it will be hard to lure them out.
Whether it?s a wall-to-wall nautical,
beach, jungle or space theme for
a kids-only dedicated bathroom
or ixtures, ittings and touches
that make a space for the whole
family more child-friendly, it just
requires a bit of imagination.
Jonathan Carter, marketing director
for Victoria + Albert Baths,
observes that functionality is a key
consideration. For instance, a lowlevel bath is great for encouraging
children to bathe independently
when they are old enough to do so.
?Allowing your family room to grow
in your bathroom is equally important.
A bathroom is more often than not
a room you only make over once per
house ? so you need to opt for products
which will suit both small children
and teenagers alike ,? he explains.
Combining
the beneits
of a bath
and shower
by opting
for freestanding
brassware with a handheld shower
attachment offers busy teenagers
the best of both worlds.
Jonathan recommends choosing
baths with a guaranteed overlow
protection system and crafted in
a material that is ambient to the
touch, super-smooth and strong, so
it can handle ?just about anything
young children may throw at it?.
While walk-in showers are great for
parents, wetroom styles can often cause
damp, slippery loors. ?We?d suggest
combining a bath and shower with an
overhead or additional shower mixer,
or, if you have the space, a separate
shower enclosure,? adds Jonathan.
And don?t forget plenty of storage.
?Aside from toiletries and towels,
children?s bathtime often results
in numerous water-based toys?
While parents need enough storage
for their own necessities, this room
is a place for tired or stressed
parents to relax and unwind!?

BUDDY UP
To avoid school run and bedtime
stress, try installing two washbasins or
a double-ended bath ? not only will this
solve the obvious battles, but it will
take the space up a notch in terms
of design and luxury. Double
mirrors and drawer spaces
are also a good idea.

t in a smaller kitchen.
?Specifying appliances for a galley kitchen
requires careful thought. If you have set
aside the space for a walkway of around
a metre, standard oven or fridge doors will
compromise a considerable portion of that
space when opened. A key tip is to it builtunder appliances. This will provide lots more
workspace, leaving views across the kitchen
at eye level uninterrupted. As a general
rule, don?t sacriice worktop space for an
American style fridge-freezer or tall pantry.
?A key design detail to bear in mind is
the use of vertical versus horizontal
woodgrain. Wildly different looks can be
achieved by using the grain in different
ways. Kitchens with low ceilings, like
?Built-under draw fridges and dishwashers
work brilliantly, as well as ovens with
doors that slip back underneath the oven
itself. Also, for the wine connoisseurs,
built-under wine temperature
regulators look incredibly sleek.
?Another innovative way to keep your
kitchen looking spacious is to do away with
the (very popular) industrial style extractor
units. Hobs with integrated extraction are
on the market today, leaving space above
your hob for extra storage, or a beautiful
splashback or even a piece of art.?

?To increase storage and to make the room appear bigger,
go for loor to ceiling cabinetry which elongates the room.
Use of mirrors is also really effective - we often use antique
mirror as a splashback to increase the spatial awareness. To
obtain a better low, consider blocking up a door or disguising
it as part of the cabinetry, which again provides a more
streamlined effect.? Tom Edmonds & Neil Matthews, directors, Lewis Alderson & Co

N
arrow corridors and awkward crooks and crannies
can make interesting features, but they also prove
tricky when designing a new kitchen for a small space.
However, choosing the right company with the
creative lair to maximise use of the limited
space available and resisting the temptation to
cut corners will produce a result that?s big on
both style and functionality. And that?s what this
homeowner discovered when they chose Harvey
Jones designer Charlotte Wallace to create a new
kitchen for their Victorian semi-detached house.
??
?The kitchen before was tired, dull and lacked
creativity,? explains Charlotte. ?This meant that the
storage and worktop space suffered massively.?
Aiming for a ?traditional yet crisp and clean? feel to
the style, Charlotte designed a space using cabinetry
from Harvey Jones?s newest range, Arbor, handpainted in oil-based Dulux Egg Shell colour.
?It has a beautiful amount of detailing on the
doors, which gives it a touch of elegance without
being too fussy. Unlike so many other heavily
detailed styles of kitchens, the Arbor still gives
a nice amount of detail, yet its simplicity makes
it so easy to maintain and clean,? she adds.
Bespoke furniture was designed to it around a
number of existing inconvenient elements, including
a ireplace which was to be hidden by the fridge, as
well as a step lanked by two pillars and a boiler.
?The step down into the kitchen was quite
challenging as we had to disguise the pillars either
side of the step as best as possible. The wall
cabinets above the wine fridge house an oldish
boiler, which was positioned at an awkward height.
As the customer was keeping this boiler, we had
to work around it and hide as much as possible.?
A space that was once tired, dull and lacking in
creativity now feels light and airy with the cabinetry
featuring subtle detailing that provides the perfect touch.

THE designer
?Smaller kitchens require careful planning. It?s
important to maximise every millimetre, so don?t
cut too many corners and end up with a kitchen
which doesn?t work well for the space. Invest and
take the time with your designer to plan it wisely.
Sometimes the smallest kitchens can work even better
than larger spaces; sometimes less really is more.?

The owner also wanted a cabinet to the left
of the fridge to appear full-depth when
in fact it?s a shallow 400mm larder.
Lighting was kept simple and practical but
to great effect; lights under box shelving
and wall cabinets creates a nice ambient
feeling in the evenings, complemented by
a pendant light above the dining table.

Charlotte says, ?I love the space ? it?s such an
improvement and I?m sure it?s given the client
something to be proud of and show off to their friends
when they have dinner parties?The previous kitchen
felt like it just started after the step down whereas it now
has a nice low from the moment you walk in. Also, the
extra storage in the bench seating comes in handy!?

in getting a bespoke service as you can maximise
the space, storage and worktops so much more.?

RED ALERT
??
Love
is
allyouneed
It?s easy to see why so many fall head over heels
with a shade that commands so much attention.
In terms of global importance,
red is certainly a powerhouse.
It ranks as one of the top two favourite
colours across the planet while more
than two thirds of international lags
display the hue loud and proud. Yet, in
the world of interior design, it?s a colour
that?s not widely spread ? particularly
in the kitchen and bathroom.
A colour that we associate with so many
strong forces and feelings ? passion,
love, heat, energy and danger ? can turn
many of us into shrinking violets when
it comes to d閏or for our homes.
?In addition to the more sensual side
that red is associated with, it also exudes
adventure, conidence, excitement and
power. Whichever way you put it, this
colour is full of emotion,? observes
Maria Gratsova, creative director for
interior design consultancy, Bright
Designs (brightdesigns-id.com)
?Homeowners can struggle with its
intensity, worry that they will tire of
it too soon, or simply not know how
and where to introduce it. Unless you
intend to make a bold statement, red is
the sort of decor element that falls into
the ?a little goes a long way? category.?

So, how can you make a hue that packs such
a punch work for you? Here are Maria?s top tips?
BATHROOM
Exert control
?Bathrooms tend to be spalike serene spaces, sometimes
at risk of appearing lifeless
and monotonous. To inject
intensity and a sense of
romance into the bathroom,
I recommend using red in
a controlled manner.
Vasco?s Carre Half
Round Carmine Red
radiator, �5. vasco.eu
?If you like the idea of red
tiles, then think how the effect
of the colour will be ampliied
by their texture - for instance,
I would keep gloss inish red
tiles to very small areas only.?
Make a feature
?A painted red feature wall, or
a portion of wall, could look
stunning as a backdrop to a
black or brass framed mirror,
alongside some industrial or
Art Deco-inspired wall lights.
A red mosaic (as a splashback
or in the shower) can be very
effective, as the grout lines
will add interest and help
bring the surface alive.?
Mix it up
?A bathroom scheme of red
and white alone can feel a little
harsh and utilitarian. Instead,
you may want to bring in subtle
greys (such as concrete) or go
bolder and pair the red with
one or more different orange
elements to create a simple but
effective analogous scheme.?
Accessorise
?If all this sounds like too
much commitment, but you are
still intrigued, then accessories
may be the way forward. You
may simply wish to add red
towels, a bath mat or candles
to bring a touch of energy and
adventure into your bathroom.?
