This are just a small selection of the modern kitchens we help you choose, plan and install

Door type Biefbi Timo - Sprayed gloss on MDF

Client Janet & Nick Joslyn

Brief Installed by GreyGreen this was a kitchen in a victorian house in SE London that had a large extension built on to it. GreyGreen were asked to design a kitchen as part of a large living area. Of interest is the granite worktop which spirals out from no overlap on one side to a breakfast bar on the other side. The chopping board covers a Teppan Yaki grill. Clients often express the desire for a statement colour that they love, but might not be appreciated in the same way by future purchasers. These sprayed doors can be resprayed in any color and the matching splashback can be replaced.

Ed Kelly - Biefbi handleless
Biefbi handleless kitchen in Brighton
This was a long narrow space in a semi basement area where the living area opened up onto the garden. The high gloss red kitchen was from our Italian supplier, Biefbi, and comes with a high build specification. We can specify any colour. The stainless steel post to the dining table was specially fabricated. The corner hob and hood was an elegant solution.

Lois and Paul Baggaley - Brockley

Brockley kitchen with painted oak doors

This was an extensive project. The original basement was on two levels with the kitchen at semi-basement level and with the formal dining area the other end at garden level. The kitchen was excavated out to create one level. All cabling and pipe work was hidden behind cupboards and the consumer unit (fuse board) contained in one cupboard. Doors were painted oak with the island unit featuring stained oak. A beautiful marble floor was laid throughout and a stunning slab of quartz was selected for the worktops. The kitchen design features 45 degree angles instead of rounded doors

Ben & Niamh Gasson - Hither Green

Kitchen with bi-fold garden doors

The client requested that the site of the existing kitchen be moved from the garden end of the room to the back of the room thereby allowing for a set of bi-fold doors to be put in. The side door and window had to be blocked up. All the utilities had to be re-sited. The old floor had to be removed as the sleeper walls that supported the floor joists had completely collapsed. New trenches had to be dug and new footings put in for the sleeper walls. The old, solid concrete, kitchen floor had to be dug up before new joists could be laid over the entire area. A new Hardi Backer floor was laid making it the ideal base for laying the very large porcelain tiles on. All the new services were laid under the floor including the re-siting of the pipe work for the radiators. All the old electrics had to be ripped out and new circuits installed with the addition of a grid of fused switches, for isolating the various appliances, in the top of one of the tall cupboards. Two grids of down lighters were installed in the ceiling for the working and leisure areas, and featured dimmerable LEDs. Dimmerable LEDs were also used for the under-cabinet lighting. The new kitchen was designed with a painted, Burbidge, 5 part shaker style door. Two shades of grey were used to add interest. The induction hob was sited on the peninsular unit, which consisted of a large 4 drawer unit, and the work top extended to create a breakfast bar.

A white Quartz material, with grey flecks, was used for the work top. The white ceramic double sink was under mounted to the worktop. All appliances were integrated including the dishwasher and washer-dryer. The beautiful, suspended, Elica hood lit the cooking area and re-circulated the now cleaned, odourless, grease free air. Very large, dramatic, and only 5mm thick, porcelain floor tiles were used, minimising the amount of grout to get dirty!

Lisa Kiddie
Borough Green, Kent
Lisa, and her husband, had come together combining two families of teenagers. This kitchen had to be stylish and fit in with their ‘leisure’ area, which included a cinema room and ‘Pub’ room with a fullsize snooker table, for entertaining friends and relatives. This beautiful handleless Biefbi Italian kitchen area, with its large radius units and high gloss doors (6 coats of lacquer, features all the conveniences of a modern kitchen; fridge, oven, dishwasher, waste disposal unit, hob and a ceiling mounted hood with lighting. The white quartz worktop, with a white ceramic sink unit, and featured bar area allowed for casual dining, drinks and coffees

Trevor and Binita Walia
Handleless kitchen in Crofton Park
Small to medium size kitchen that required the careful planning of the space to accommodate the appliances. The client asked for colour matched doors that were handleless. They were made and sprayed to order. The door to the garden was seldom used as there was another in the dining area. A mobile set of drawers was created, to fill the space, using large casters that brought the worktop level with the other work surfaces. See picture. This could be wheeled out for large gatherings and parties where more doors to the garden were required.

They wanted a visual continuity from the kitchen to the adjacent dining/living area. A large bank of matching cupboards and drawers, going from floor to ceiling, was built in the dining/living area to accomplish this. The worktop was specially built from stainless steel and included the top on the mobile unit. A matching towel rail was also fabricated. Lots of spicy cooking demanded a very efficient hood. The selected one was also very quiet even at high speeds. Note the extensive use of pullouts for the efficient and easy storage of food and utensils.

Door type Cucina colore - Futura handleless cream silk

Client Craig Chater & Corinne Prusik

Brief Installed by GreyGreen this was a kitchen in a modern block of flats at Tower Bridge, London. A typical modern galley kitchen, the brief was to maximise storage with whatever wirewook was available, ie pullout larder, double bin, magic corner and pan drawers. The soil pipe which ran down the building needed to be accommodated behind the pullout larder and created its own problems. Corian worktop fitted. Note smooth transition from worktop to window sill.

Client Emma & Jim Gant

Brief Installed by GreyGreen this was a kitchen in a end of terrace modern house in Honor Oak, SE London. We were asked to design a kitchen as part of a large living area. The end cupboard housed all the electrics and the owners computer was housed in the lower section with a pullout keyboard shelf. Corian was used for the worktop - note the way the Corian curves up to meet the window sill. A two step stool was stored in the plinth area.

Client David & Elaine Protheroe

Brief Installed by GreyGreen, this kitchen in Honor Oak, SE London, had originally no breakfast bar. The difficulty was creating all the required storage space whilst keeping the space as open as posssible to accommodate a seating area. An unusual treatment was that of the fullheight fridge as part of the worktop/breakfast bar with the freezer under the worktop. A pullout larder was accommodated in the cupboard just in from the conservatory door
