Porthkea In Frame Shaker

Project Year: 2019
Location: Carnon Downs, Cornwall

When looking to update the kitchen and utility in their existing family home, the clients approached Treyone to produce a design scheme which could provide them with a functional kitchen, and which moved away from the ‘busy’ style of their previous units. With a preference for the timeless style of our in-frame shaker units, the clients favored simplicity in design style and purity of materials.

The kitchen room is generous in size and has ample natural light and beautiful views over the surrounding open countryside. Due to the size of the room, a large central island with chunky corner post legs provides the main focal point for the space, and a gorgeous 60mm thick continuous wide stave oak worktop, and integrated feature circular chopping board, contribute texture and warmth to the scheme. Generously sized units were used to reflect the size of the space, and facilitate ease of use. This can be seen to good effect in the large larder cupboard with internal oak drawers and spice racks.

A simple character oak beam and corbels were installed to highlight the alcove containing the range cooker, and this linked visually to the new oak shelving with feature lighting. The soft grey / green tone of the Farrow & Ball ‘Old White’ painted units, was finished off with a seamless Corian worktop, integrated sink and coved upstands.

A calming space with strong features for a modern and functional family kitchen. – Sarah Molloy, Designer (Treyone Truro, Cornwall)
