Treyone’s big win celebrates a small space

Here at Treyone, we’re celebrating a big win at the recent NEFF MasterPartner® Excellence Awards.

An annual black tie event, the awards celebrate the very best NEFF showrooms and kitchen designers in the UK and this year Treyone won the “Best Use of a Small Space” Award on 19th May. Project designer, Stewart MacPherson who is based in our Kingsbridge showroom picked up the award from host, James Nesbitt OBE, at a ceremony held at The Brewery in the heart of the City of London.

Over 140 entries were competing in the eight award categories and Treyone chose to enter the “Small Space” category to prove that bespoke kitchen joinery is not just about big schemes, large spaces and deep pockets. Competing was an opportunity to showcase our versatility and mastery at providing outstanding design solutions whatever the brief.

Treyone’s award-winning design was for a kitchen that blended seamlessly into the living space of the client, Jon and Kirsty Cooper’s, newly refurbished holiday retreat. Two ovens, a dishwasher, fridge freezer, warming drawer, induction hob, extractor, sink, tap and ample storage were nestled into a 3m x 3m space while affording an uninterrupted view across the room to the TV screen and accommodating a boiler within the tall housing.

Stewart liaised closely with the couple’s interior designer to ensure the kitchen and living space worked as a whole. The two-toned solid, textured ash shaker kitchen furniture picked up on colours repeated throughout the room while the smoked mirror splashback helped create the illusion of a bigger space. Attention to detail saw the solid oak island worktop tinted to dampen any orange hues that would not have worked with the rest of the colour scheme.

Speaking after his win Stewart commented, “I’ve often found that working within certain constraints or with a tricky space results in our most creative, brilliantly functional designs, as well as making our clients very happy. All Treyone kitchens are custom-made to order so really, anything is possible!”
