New Beginnings

View Gallery

With meticulous attention to detail in every aspect of their home, the couple had already predetermined how their new kitchen should function. ‘We thought about the kitchen the most and wanted it to be the main hub of our home’. The couple visited Dorans Kitchen & Home after viewing the website. They met with designer Jordan Price who listened to their vision and had the same attention to detail as the couple themselves. Jordan came on board at the planning stage, which allowed him to make suggestions regarding the structural aspects of this magnificent vaulted room. ‘Natural light flooding into the kitchen was essential so that’s why we decided on a pitched ceiling with Velux windows. We wanted a simple kitchen with straight lines, preferably in a pale shade of grey, to reflect the light. Jordan listened to out list of must haves and came up with really creative ideas for the final scheme’

Designed predominantly in a light grey hand painted finish, the cabinetry features walnut accents, which add warmth and contract without dominating or darkening the room. ‘Jordan was extremely helpful when advising on aesthetic elements such as worktops and antique brass handles. He was also great in advising on our appliance choices. We were very keen to keep most of the appliances integrated to give the range cooker its own stage so Jordan designed a large over mantel which gives this main appliance a beautiful frame.’

Marruring sleek 30mm white quartz surfaces to a raised 80mm solid walnut area on the island creates the striking and warm look the couple were after. Indeed, the island was an area of careful consideration. ‘Because we didn’t have space restrictions, one of the hardest decisions was the size of the island and where the seating should go. Jordan was brilliant at advising us and offered the best possible solution with this spacious island designed with clean lines in keeping with the rest of the room. Our kitchen is even better than we imagined! It has totally exceeded our expectation and is such a fantastic family space. We highly recommend Jordan – he got everything right, down to the last detail.’
