Solid wood, split-level, painted kitchen near Bath

A custom split-level island/breakfast bar solves the difficulties of a split-level room in this kitchen near Bath. The breakfast bar, on the upper level, has an oak worktop, book-shelf storage at each end and a central seating area with a view!

All the pine cabinets have tulipwood front frames, with tulipwood shaker doors and drawer fronts. The front frame has a Victorian bead. All the cabinets have been finished inside with a medium oak stain and clear lacquer for ease of cleaning.

The kitchen cabinets have a smooth, tough, enamel-like finish from four coats of paint. The colour chosen is a colour match to Farrow and Ball Pigeon.

Brushed steel nickel hinges, Blum Movento soft close drawer runners and magnetic soft close door pulls were used for the door and drawer fixings with 32mm size pewter door knobs. The kitchen end panels have been finished with a Victorian bead frame.

Worktops are solid block oak, with quartz stone around the sink area. The oak worktops have been fixed to the cabinets using handmade wooden dowels to allow for movement in the timber. The sink is a double bowl Belfast with brushed steel nickel mixer tap.

For pan storage, Sally and Mark chose two large three-drawer cabinets which were made to fit each side of their range cooker.
