A quality ‘cottage’ style kitchen for a Tudor property in Ballingdon, Sudbury


Our client wanted a ‘cottagey’ feel kitchen that would work with the rest of the interior of his 400 year old property. With limited space, it was important to design an uncluttered looking kitchen to maximise the appearance of light and space.


Working with a smaller budget, but determined to provide a premium kitchen for our client, we suggested Mereway solid Oak solid shaker cabinets combined with solid quartz worktops.

It was important, due to limited space, to design a kitchen that was able to accommodate appliances that didn’t dominate the room. Our design included all seven appliances under the counter to create simplicity  – maximising the feeling of space and light.

The kitchen was housed in an extension onto the original property. The external wall of the Tudor property was not straight due to its age. Therefore the cabinets had to be built into the wall to fit. This required alterations to the lines of the standard sized cabinets used.

The owner chose to retain the original quarry tile flooring to match the internal hallway adjacent to the kitchen.

“Brilliant service and a superb product! Thank you for my amazing Kitchen. Special thanks to Steve for his patient & professional service.”
