COMPLETED : Summer 2016
DESIGN BRIEF : Mr & Mrs Barraclough wanted a kitchen that would make their visitors go ‘Wow!’.
Mr & Mrs Barraclough had the usual Kitchen problems to solve – an old kitchen, with the original carcasses & utilities in the main Kitchen. With new bi-folding doors being installed to look out into the garden, the opportunity was presented to change the kitchen to really take advantage of a change in layout, and that new garden view.
After initial consultation to identify their needs, Tracy presented the Barracloughs with a proposal featuring the Perth range in an icy white gloss with Walnut laminate for contrast, and a range of appliances and gadgets they’d never before considered.
“At first, I couldn’t understand why my kitchen design included all the trimmings it did. Warming cabinets, a Quooker boiling hot water tap, three fridges (one for wine!), and a combi-oven (when I’d always preferred separates). I’d never even had an induction hob before.
But now, I don’t know how I lived without it all! The slow cooker program on the combi-oven is used every day. No more 15 minute teas cooked at the last minute, it’s totally changed how I plan and prepare my meals – it’s the best thing since sliced bread.
The Quooker tap – who knew boiling a kettle was such an inconvenience!
The induction hob has been a real learning curve for me, with my husband finding great hilarity in my wondering why the hub wasn’t warm while I held the pan in the air and watched for Red Rings that would never appear. It only took a few nights of takeaways for me to figure it out!
Tracy was amazing, I was kept in the loop at all stages, she handled everything. Paul, the fitter, was a super calm guy, no amount of me watching over his shoulder could shake him, and the result is an absolutely perfect finish.
I love my colour change lighting (which changes the mood of the whole room), I love my soft-close slide-out drawers, and last night while Roast Beef and Yorkshires cooked in the slow cooker I found I couldn’t help but tell my husband ‘I love… my new Kitchen’.”
