One of the things we love about working with Masterclass Kitchens is that they are continually striving to be improve and extend the range, and this Autumn’s product lauch is no exception.  Here are some of the highlights: Two new ranges – the Hardwick is 

Ashbourne Light Blue – Normanton on Soar

Ashbourne Light Blue – Normanton on Soar

Our clients desperately wanted to update the kitchen in their beautiful old cottage, and get some much needed light into what was a large, open dining/kitchen space.  The chose our Ashbourne door in Light Blue, a subtle colour equally at home in either a traditional or contemporary setting.

To keep everything light, a Silestone Blanco Maple quartz worktop was fitted to the sink and hob areas, which contrasted perfectly with the solid oak breakfast bar, which gave a lovely homely feel to this charming cottage.

Whilst we had initially planned to remove the original chimney breast, further investigation revealed that this was not structurally feasible.  Our solution was to build a new false chimney breast around the original, but with much more aesthetically pleasing proportions.

The finishing touch was flooring – the majority of the downstairs floor was a dark quarry tile, which the client was understandably reluctant to remove.  So we fitted Quickstep Exquisa tile-effect laminate over the existing flooring.  As you can see from the before and after photos – along with the lighter units and worktops – this made the whole space feel so much lighter, and the clients were thrilled with the finished result.

Despite having a fairly large kitchen, our clients were fed up with the dining area being cramped due to the utility room encroaching into the space.  Fortunately, the dividing wall was not load bearing, so it was a relatively simple job to remove.  We then 

Hampton Windsor Blue with Scots Grey – Swadlincote

Hampton Windsor Blue with Scots Grey – Swadlincote

Our clients were undertaking a large extension project on their home, to create a spacious kitchen diner.  On their travels for a kitchen to be the centre piece of their new space, they fell in love with our vibrant Windsor Blue Hampton door.  The Hampton is a high quality, painted silk finish door now available in the full Masterclass colour palette of 27 colours so there really is something for everyone.

Silestone Blanco Stellar worktops add a bit of sparkle, and looks fantastic with the Silestone Integrity matching sink.

A large island provides an ideal cooking space with the Elica NikolaTesla venting induction hob, which was ducted under the floor during the contruction stage.

Some nice finishing touches were LED strip lights at plinth level, which provide subtle mood lighting, and a double larder unit set up as a drinks cabinet, which looks stunning!

Lancing Natural Oak – Coleorton

Our client wanted a traditional kitchen for their new-build home, and the character of the Masterclass Lancing fitted the bill perfectly.  Complimented perfectly with Silestone Grey Stellar quartz worktops, the layout also included our ever popular corner larder, and a Rangemaster induction range cooker.

Lumina White Gloss – Ravenstone

It’s a common story – our clients wanted to remove the wall between kitchen and seldom-used dining room, to create an open plan kitchen diner.  After producing some initial CAD drawings to illustrate how it would look, the client, a keen cook, loved the idea
