As Seen on Social | Autumn ‘23

16th November 2023 | All About Kitchens

Need another reason to be scrolling Instagram late at night? Let us introduce you to some of our followers’ projects, homeowners who have chosen to work alongside one of our approved Kitchen Stori Retailers and have opted for a Kitchen Stori range (or two) in their homes.

Carmel & Peter | Co. Armagh, N. Ireland

Choosing two of our signature ranges for their new build, Aldana & Harborne, Carmel & Peter have paid homage to their site’s roots (an old farmhouse) with natural wood elements while adding their own contemporary stamp to their home. The shaker style cabinetry featured throughout the project is painted in a luxurious deep teal, Viridian. The bold Kitchen Stori exclusive shade is balanced with light walls, Calcutta Peral Quartz worktops and brass hardware. Natural wood accents feature throughout, from open shelving to a solid oak wine rack, tying in Aldana & Harborne’s authentic ash grained finish. The streamlined kitchen design is further enhanced with built-in appliances including a white hob that subtly graces the island. The design is mirrored in the bootility which incorporates storage at every opportunity including drawers under the integrated bench and full height cabinetry with grand triple panel doors and top boxes. There’s even a dedicated space created just for the family’s four-legged friend, Molly.

Beverley | Merseyside, England

Beverly used one of our premium foil ranges to transform her kitchen during the renovation of her period property. Kensington, a classic shaker door style featuring a woodgrain effect, works perfectly in this small space and packs a punch in the majestic hue of Marine. Paired with washed oak flooring, a light herringbone tiled backsplash and pale beige walls, the bold cabinetry colour choice is balanced perfectly. An example of how you can opt for any shade in any size of space with the right styling. Brass knobs add warmth whilst the oak table and benches add a natural element tying in with the grain of the kitchen doors and drawers. Additional storage space is provided with a wall of full height cabinetry just off the kitchen (not pictured, view this over on Beverley’s Instagram), ensuring this kitchen isn’t short on space to store everyday necessities.

Theresa | Co. Down, N. Ireland

In her previous home Theresa had a Kitchen Stori kitchen and when she moved to her new home, she knew she had to have one again. Opting for our Wakefield range, a traditional shaker door style in a tranquil colour combination of Porcelain and Cardamom, the timeless design exudes warmth. Traditional elements like brushed brass cup handles and knobs, matching mixer tap, the under-mounted ceramic double sink and beaded panelling add to the classic appeal. The full height quartz backsplash and worktop with subtle flecks of gold tie in with the hardware and the serenity of the space, whilst special features like the breakfast pantry and the curved kitchen island doors add further luxury to the kitchen.

Nadine | Co. Antrim, N. Ireland

Nadine’s open-plan kitchen-dining-living area is the perfect example of Aldana in a modern setting. Painted in Graphite, the soft black hue makes a statement in this large multi-functional space whilst white walls and the subtly veined matching backsplash and worktops add balance to the palette. The wood effect tiles laid in a herringbone pattern draw on Aldana’s authentic woodgrain providing depth to the kitchen. The brass knurled handles add an industrial touch complementing the clean lines of the kitchen’s layout. The overall design is kept seamless with built-in appliances including a double oven, hob and extractor fan whilst the large island provides additional workspace and an area for casual dining or hanging out with friends and family.
