KITCHEN DESIGN – GARGRAVE, NORTH YORKSHIRE
Believed to date back to the late 1600’s, This Georgian manor was formerly The Vicarage to the village of Gargrave and has undergone a true transformation in order to make it a home of true grace and favour, yet with a delightful comfortable atmosphere of family living throughout.
HEART OF THE HOME
Our client wanted to achieve a space which matched their families everyday needs. The current layout of the manor was a selection of rooms which meant the family couldn’t all be in one social space. We decided to incorporate 3 rooms into one and create a bright vibrant space which ultimately would become the heart of the home. We combined an informal living area, the kitchen and a breakfast room all within the one space. From doing this we were able to access the true amount of light that flooded the space through the original Georgian sash windows, allowing the real character of the building to shine through.

For the cabinetry aspect of the kitchen our client wanted true craftsmanship and opted for bespoke In-frame cabinetry which would be sympathetic to the integrity of the building. We wanted to keep the design modern and minimal but with little hints of character which could work in harmony with the rest of the room. The doors were crafted from solid ash and painted in two contrasting colours, Graphite & Stone, from our own standard colour palette. The frame itself incorporated an outside chamfer along with an internal cockbead detail, then the door was a simple shaker style but with a subtle chamfer detail to the middle in order to soften any sharp edges. Our client wanted the character of the visible grain apparent in the wood to shine through, something which was achieved in the final product, allowing the luxurious character to be showcased throughout the design.
All the cabinetry was brought to life with the use of our Calcatta Neptune quartz work surface. Based on the Calcatta & Estuario Marbles of Italy, this work surface really brought a sense of style to the rest of the room with deep veining and depth. We allowed for the work surfaces to be revealed within the dresser units to create added preparation and storage areas.
On the whole, this kitchen has provided a perfect family space. The central island provides informal seating and a central hub for the room, whilst the breakfast area allows for overflow storage and a space where the family can come together at all times throughout the day.
“We spent over a year and had quotes from 7 different kitchen companies before deciding which to use. Infinite seemed to give the best combination of value and quality. Michael was by far the the most creative in terms of his design. It was obvious he had put a lot of thought and time into coming up with the best design and layout. We were initially apprehensive about not being able to see examples of the cabinets in a showroom but Michael and the team were able to bring samples of everything for use to see at home and the 3D renderings were incredibly realistic and made it really easy to visualise how the kitchen would finally look. We are delighted with our new kitchen which looks fantastic and has completely transformed family life.”

The main aim for this kitchen was to create a dynamic family living space. We planned the kitchen around the existing gas/oil Aga range cooker, framing it by creating a large sweeping mantle which gave the room a real focal point. We then teamed this with a large central island which would house all the plumbing elements of the kitchen. Opposite this island was the large tall housing larder units. In the breakfast room we created fitted furniture to allow for more storage and an integrated fridge/freezer space. Essentially the project was designed in zones. Zone 1 was the cooking zone, this was the back wall. Zone 2 was the collection of all the wet aspects to the kitchen, Zone 3 was the dry consumable storage in tall larders, then finally zone 4 which was the refrigeration & added storage area. With the idea of these zones in mind it essentially made everyday life a lot easier as it created circulation around the kitchen more organised and efficient, and meant that no more than one person needed to be in a particular zone at once. The kitchen worked out perfectly and adopts the initial brief from our client that they wanted this to be the heart of their home.
