Home Baking Heaven
This returning Cameron Interiors client aspired to a highly efficient and stylish space to indulge their love of baking. Having worked together before, this was our third family kitchen, and living space together, and we were delighted to showcase their passion with a brief that was built around their culinary talents. Their home was an off plan, new-build property.
Having worked with us before, the client knew that we would maximise space and create their own perfect kitchen, pushing the limits of the original generic floor plans of their new house. Achieving this would personalise the space and allow our client to focus on their kitchen passions and enjoy time with their grandchildren in the heart of their family home.
A classic bulthaup kitchen was chosen in gravel pigment lacquer and grey oak veneer to provide organic, natural warmth and creating a relaxed and inviting space.
The standard ‘u-shaped’ kitchen was removed, allowing for a longer, linear solution with a deeper work space – a peninsula to provide a dedicated family baking station. As such, optimum storage for baking equipment was a priority and a pull-out worktop conceals the large Kitchen Aid food mixer and keeps it close to hand for ease of use. Pocket doors provide neat storage for the coffee machine and crockery.
The core brief was for clean, minimal lines from start to finish, aiming for practicality and with relaxation and enjoyment key priorities. Corian work surfaces with a coved upstand emphasise this minimal approach and introduce further tactile warmth. Equally complimentary is the feature ceiling lighting over the cooking and island preparation areas. A Weaver and Ducrependant light, positioned over floating bulthaup b3 shelves highlights items on display and the grey oak veneer finish beautifully.
A super-efficient Quooker boiling tap and BORA cooktop with integrated extraction maintain the clean lines and Siemens appliances help achieve perfect results. The BORA down draft extractor was positioned at the external wall allowing maximum efficiency, ducted directly to the outside. This also allowed for maximum space and light above the cook zone work areas.
A dining space, created with wall panelling and soft leather seating offers the most inviting area to enjoy the home-baked delights. A Corian dining table and a comfortable KFF leather freestanding dining bench also offer an interesting focal point.
The kitchen leads to a conservatory and lounge area, creating the perfect interior flow within the ground floor of the house. Optimising the available floor space within this new build has created a large functioning, multipurpose space which achieves the feeling of a far larger home.
Our goal was to create a classic Cameron Interiors design – an open functional space encompassing the ground floor of this new build construction and the final results speak for themselves. Efficient, minimal, warm and inviting, this is our home baker’s baking paradise.
