Painted in-frame kitchen for a stunning cottage in Llanblethian

This was a wonderful project to be involved with. Mr and Mrs Cheeseman were refurbishing their stunning country cottage in the picturesque village of Llanblethain, near Cowbridge South Wales. When they first began exploring the concept of a new kitchen, they were very open to lots of creative ideas. However, there were a few factors that had a bearing over what could ultimately be achieved. Firstly, there was the fact that this was a period cottage that demanded a more traditional design. Additionally, the old Aga stove was to remain at the heart of the room.
The final design was a traditional inframe kitchen with oak timber doors painted in a light blue finish. Classic doors were used on some of the cabinets and additional lighting was implemented to enhance the look. Mr and Mrs Cheeseman didn’t want to rely totally on the Aga stove and so a small induction hob was fitted to the left of the Aga, as well as modern ovens within the full height cabinets to the rear of the kitchen.

Clever use of lighting

This was a relatively small kitchen area and, as with many period cottages, the windows were small. In this instance, lighting was crucial. We worked hard to come up with a lighting plan that helped to flood the room with ample light, whilst maintaining the character of this beautiful property.

Bespoke elements

When this cottage was built, it’s highly unlikely that spirit levels were in existence. If they were, the builder must have forgotten to use one. None of the walls were even slightly straight. This meant that many of the infills and components needed to be scribed by hand to ensure they looked their best agains the curves of the wall.
On top of that, we constructed a bespoke extraction bulk head to house the extraction fan unit. This was a totally bespoke element, built by hand during the kitchen installation. The finished piece complements the Aga stove perfectly and finishes off the design in style.
