A Cotswold Barn
This is a Classic English Kitchen on a grand scale, not only is the room incredible but so is the location. We all love the Cotswolds and many of our deVOL Kitchens have made their way into homes across this county but this one is extra special. The Crittall doors and windows and the concrete floor give a modern edge to this beautifully designed space, we love a careful mix of classic and modern in a kitchen and these two choices have become so popular for their industrial yet glamorous look.
The huge expanse of Arabescato Corchia marble covers every work surface, its bold and dramatic veining makes it more than just a worktop but a piece of natural art, especially behind the AGA where it becomes a splashback. The wide Classic English drawer cupboards are nicely symmetrical either side of the AGA and using the Classic Pull Handles in brass makes the whole run look sleek and simple. We love using the same cupboards in a run, whether it is drawers or cupboards, it simplifies the look and makes for a much less bitty kitchen, this look is so much easier in a big space. Keep all your functional cabinets and mismatched pieces in a less obvious spot, so your initial vision of the room is uncluttered and elegant. It’s not always easy to do, but when you have the opportunity it really does look smart and somehow less kitcheny. The middle of this room houses a magnificent collection of full height pantry cupboards and appliances, Sub Zero fridges and freezers are top of the range when it comes to refrigeration but wow they really do perform on a different level than most of us are used to.
I love the defined areas of this kitchen, the cooking area is simple and chic, just our simple Aged Brass Hanging Rails for a little added decoration and a perfect spot for those obligatory copper pans. The area dedicated to food and refrigeration, the secondary fridge and drinks area with a very cool Zip tap for boiling, still and sparkling water at the touch of a button. Then the island, the place to prep, clean up, and hang out on our Bum Stools of course!! There are two sinks, two dishwashers and two sets of bins in the island, sheer luxury. Then when all the prepping and shopping and cooking is done you can spend hours sitting around the huge table or wandering out into the grounds, sounds pretty idyllic to us.
This is a bespoke kitchen and has bespoke colours on all the cupboards, it is one of the many lovely bits about having a deVOL Classic English Kitchen, you can have exactly what you want.
