MKM Scarborough has recently worked with local customers, Eve and David Jervis, to help create a bespoke kitchen in their new-build property.
Eve and David came to Jenny, kitchen designer for MKM Scarborough, with a clear vision for the kitchen, and wanted it in keeping with the open-plan kitchen/lounge area.
David has praised the quality of service Jenny and the wider MKM Scarborough team provided, from idea creation to refining design ideas, right through to ensuring storage services were in place for provisions when the build hit delays.
As anyone who has undertaken a project of this magnitude will attest to, you should expect the unexpected. This project was no different and structural restrictions forced the couple to reconsider their kitchen design at the very last minute – the day before ordering, in fact.
“With an open-plan design imperative to the client, a dramatic configuration change was undertaken, with amends being made to avoid necessitating the erection of further supporting walls,” said Jenny. “Eventually, after a few panic stricken hours, the design was finalised and the couple’s new kitchen was installed.”
The modern, contemporary kitchen – which uses the New York Gloss range from manufacturer Symphony – consisted of bi-fold soft close wall and drawer units in “cashmere”, finished with white surfaces. David commented upon the “clean lines” of the kitchen, which gives the room a modern look.
Eve wanted an open-plan kitchen/lounge area with some privacy for cooking. So Jenny designed a walled section built from panels and worktops to create an area at the end of the units. And to keep to the minimalist design, Jenny configured the bi-fold wall units to house a concealed extractor hood which continued the clean-lines throughout the kitchen.
David, clearly thrilled with his new kitchen, described MKM Scarborough’s input as “tremendous”, with Jenny being “a fantastic asset for MKM”. David specifically cited the quality of kitchen in terms of value for money as being unrivalled, with the workmanship and design capabilities MKM provided enabling the project outcome to be exactly what they wanted.
