Designing a bespoke traditional kitchen

Posted by Bath Bespoke on 7 February 2018

Following on from the popularity of our previous kitchen walk-through video, I thought I’d show you our next kitchen in the pipeline. Alex has been working on this for the last couple weeks and he’s just finished the drawings and the video to go with it.

As previously mentioned, BB designers, Tom and Alex, create a series of 2D plans on paper for our cabinet makers to work to. These involve an overview of the project, and then detailed plans showing precise measurements and materials. But alongside these plans, they also create a 3D plan of the project using CAD software. They use these 3D drawings during the concept and planning stage and also to give our clients an idea of what their kitchen will look and feel like once complete. It’s a really useful tool and below you can see the walk-through of our next kitchen in the making.

Traditional kitchen

The details

We’re working closely with a trade partner on this particular project. While they are leading the building work, we’re crafting the interiors and have worked cosely on the designs, going into a lot of detail to get the right finish for the client. This particular traditional shaker kitchen features Accoya door frames with birch plywood cabinets, with bead detail to the face frame and chamfered corbels. There’s a solid oak top on the island, gallery rail to shallow shelves in the utility area for cookery books and solid oak dovetailed drawer boxes.

The style is totally different to that in our previous kitchen project which featured slab doors, Corian backed bespoke profile handles and a lazy susan.

Being able to design and craft unqiue projects like these is what keep it exciting!
