This white, modern kitchen design in Bath replaced an old wooden kitchen whose doors were falling off and whose appliances were starting to fail.
Clare and Paul, Bathwick, Bath
We were extremely happy with the service received from Style Within … the end result is a lovely kitchen we enjoy being in
The photos below give a sense of the transformation.
Modern Kitchen Design
From the clients’ brief, we produced a floor plan with electrical overlay and a rendered 3D visual. There was some initial trading of features to meet the budget, so the skylight was sacrificed for a quartz worktop! Our 3D models truly help our clients to envisage the space and we include these as part of our standard process. For those who just want to see their proposed alterations in 3D, we also offer a separate 3D architectural visualisation service.
Here is this modern kitchen design in Bath when complete; you can see how helpful the visual above would have been in helping our clients to visualise the space.
Kitchen Units and Appliances
We reviewed several options for cabinets, appliances and finishes, mindful of the budget which also allowed for a new boiler. The boiler was installed in the property’s undercroft (cellar) controlled remotely, freeing up space in the kitchen for more storage. Later you can read our detailed advice pages on choosing kitchen units and types of kitchen appliance.
We guided our clients on which showrooms to view, and lined up meetings with suppliers. They preferred flat gloss white kitchen cabinets with integrated handles. They also liked the idea of practical corner base units to access those difficult-to-reach areas.
They also opted for deep pan drawers – an excellent choice for this kitchen.
Below a wall unit is fitted as a base unit for extra storage, where a full depth unit would have been too deep.
Splashback and worktop
We supplied several combinations and all agreed on the ice-blue glass splashback with a white based worktop. With orange as an accent colour, and decent lighting, the space would look quite dramatic. White quartz with silver crystals was an expensive but fabulous choice for the worktop. For the floor, the clients chose wood effect vinyl planks which added warmth and complemented the white walls.
Note also in the image above the gas hob and glass cooker hood which vented through a lead slate on the roof. The built in microwave was a must for our clients, recognising its reduced depth relative to a standard microwave, as it sits in a wall unit.
Not wasting any space, we created this bespoke wine rack from extra sections of the cabinet side panel material. We also persuaded the clients to include a radiator. This tall, slim model provided a stylish solution with great heat output.
Modern kitchen design in Bath
We’ve now completed this modern kitchen design in Bath. We transformed it from a dark, overly-wooden setting, to sleek, hygienic and bright space. It functions well for our clients and is much easier to keep clean with the glass splashback and plain fronted cabinets. Please see more in our kitchen portfolio.
