This energetic couple were seeking a large kitchen-living space for entertaining and enjoying extended family time. Natural connectivity and a logical sense of flow were critical factors in bringing about the resulting design. Many configurations were considered but the final design made best use of the wall of light coming in through large glass patio doors and created four distinct but inherently linked spaces - welcome drinks; casual lounge; kitchen and dining fulfilling every need the client had for this area.


The kitchen boasts a large bank of tall cabinets with discreet area for Blanco sink and Quooker tap. Convenience and healthy cooking played a big part in the appliance decisions for this project. The colour scheme for the kitchen-living space and bar area was discussed in great depth and the use of many different finishes, each with a harmonising tone brings a calmness and cohesion into this beautiful space.

This client wanted the roof light to sit directly above the island. As the roof light had to go in first, careful detailing of the kitchen arrangement was required to ensure sufficient room was given for the walkways and that the room symmetry and connectivity was not compromised. In addition the island required a join at the point the two different Silestone finishes met- this requires accuracy and craftsmanship, and the finished island looks and feels spectacular!


This beautiful kitchen design fully expressed this clients personal tastes and requirements In fact they love this huge space so much that they moved the furniture from their lounge into the TV area and the main lounge has now turned into an exercise room! When I met this couple to complete the photo shoot they couldn’t say more how delighted they are with the space, flow, feel and storage of this superbly designed kitchen.

Our Clients had this to say:

“It may sound dramatic.... but the day we met Keith at Grand Designs our lives changed... for the better! Midway through a major extension and renovation project, we had been searching fruitlessly for a kitchen company to help guide us through the almost overwhelming choices available, and come up with a special design for our new space. Keith has a whole different approach to the process of kitchen talk of what appliances we wanted and where....instead an in-depth discussion of our lifestyle and how we wanted the space work for us. After several visits to Winchester, the design was agreed and the rest of the friendly and professional Myers Touch team went smoothly into action. They advised us, liaised with our builders and installed a truly quality product with amazing attention to detail. Helena was able to offer invaluable advice on colours, soft furnishings etc to complete the finished look, Keith’s innovative design makes perfect use of the space and light, is tailor-made completely to suit our lifestyle and definitely has the ‘WOW’ factor we were looking for! We can highly recommend The Myers Touch, they offer a professional service throughout....innovative design with attention to detail backed up by excellent quality products and superb fitting. They have made our dreams into our daily reality. Thank you :)”
