Inspired by Clifden

Expertly designed and fitted by our approved Kitchen Stori Retailers, these Real Kitchen projects with Clifden at the helm, showcase how versatile the range is when paired with different accessories, handle options, and colour schemes. 

Simply Symmetrical

Stylish yet practical, this Real Kitchen project by Clonmel Kitchen & Bedroom Centre for Mr & Mrs Millar maximizes storage with full-height cabinetry, extra wide drawers, and top boxes. The rich green hue combined with the light oak accessories and brass hardware makes the transition from indoors to outdoors seamless.

Ella Austin Kitchens have transformed this open-plan kitchen-dining space in Frensham. The clean lines of Clifden’s design are complimented with plain glazed wall cabinets, a double mitered waterfall edge island and a striking colour palette. Further richness is added with brass bar handles, wooden flooring, and an antique mirrored splashback.
