Bespoke English walnut surfaces designed for a customer in Ifield, Sussex. This project is the result of a collaboration with a kitchen showroom, and features resin-enhanced walnut worktops, upstands and a large island as the centrepiece of a practical, modern kitchen. The service was extended to an additional utility room.
The natural warmth and radiance of walnut provides an appealing contrast between the invigorating turquoise and cool grey finish of the cupboards and shelves. The worktops and island have been fitted with end-caps to ensure protection from heat generated by the cooker. This simplistic technique of surface protection also makes for an aesthetically pleasing feature that brings depth to the design.
All surfaces used for this project were handcrafted at our workshop in Plumpton Green and treated with a blend of high-quality, fragrant oils. The timber was kiln-dried to below 10% moisture content using our on-site vacuum kiln. The island is 2.5m long and over 1.6m wide. The end-caps are running along the length of the island.
