Kitchen Of The Month – Our next125 Display

For our Kitchen Of The Month for May, we looked a little closer to home than usual. I’ve opted to choose our very own kitchen display, which proudly sits pride of place in our Amersham Kitchen Showroom window.

It is of course our stunning Schuller Next125 kitchen. This contemporary German kitchen is awash with personality, style and practicality.

A key design consideration for us was how to create a kitchen which not only captured the attention of passers-by, but when clients’ popped into the showroom, it was really important to us to ensure the display had more talking points than just its show-stopping looks.

The burnt orange niches are perhaps the most visually eye-catching element, but when we look deeper into this German kitchen, there’s plenty more going on.

Luxury, glass-fronted cabinetry was a perfect choice for a kitchen window display, especially when the sun does arrive in Amersham!

The wood-effect appliance housing works seamlessly with the other colours and textures and houses top-of-the-range Miele appliances.

The Spekva breakfast bar proves how well wood can work in a contemporary kitchen; it really adds a great degree of warmth to the display.

The Dekton work surfaces and seamless splash-backs are a personal favourite of mine, and is often one of the first questions asked about the display. We love Dekton for both its beauty and practicality.

Another talking point is the induction hob with built-in extractor, which really feeds into the the clean lines of a German kitchen, and ensures attention can firmly remain on the cabinetry.

After the Covid-19 outbreak, and when some degree of normality returns, people will begin looking at home renovations, especially after spending so much time at home lately! Whether you will be looking for a contemporary German kitchen, or a more traditional English shaker style or in-frame kitchen, the Design A Space team would love to help. From our Amersham kitchen showroom, we serve clients throughout Buckinghamshire, Hertfordshire and the Chilterns, as well as those a bit further afield in Oxfordshire and North West London.

We’re picking up e-mails so please do get in touch with us to put the wheels in motion for your project.

We look forward to welcoming you back to our Showroom soon!

The Beauty Of Tri-Tone Kitchens

At Design A Space, we’ve always worked in a way which ensures that our clients personality really shines through in their kitchen design. We go to enormous lengths to really understand what they want from their kitchen; both in terms of style as well as in a practical sense. 

One of the initial stages of designing a kitchen revolves around colours – at this stage it becomes evident to us what our clients wish to achieve. Some people prefer a single colour which they can accessorise until their heart’s content, whilst others like the beauty of dual tone. 

It is quite rare that a client has three core colours in which they want to base their kitchen around. This can be quite a challenge – it is key that the tones blend well together, so a good level of thought must be given to where best to employ these colours. 

This Schuller kitchen, completed for our client in Hertfordshire, is a great example of how a mix of colours can work so incredibly well together. Sand Grey and Blue Grey combine beautifully on the wall, base and tall units, whilst we opted for Blue Satin on the island. 

Our client didn’t want to stop there; we incorporated wood shelving and niches, as well as the show-stopping copper handles and tap. 

We think your dream kitchen should be about you. Do not shy away from mixing and matching colours and textures – we can help you to ensure that these combine well and, and, ultimately, design a kitchen which is personal to you. 

We offer both German kitchens and British made kitchens, from our suppliers Schuller (and their next125 range) as well as British manufacture Kesseler – the Design A Space team can certainly ensure the kitchen you have been dreaming about becomes a reality.

We hope everyone is doing as well as can be expected in these tricky times. We’re trying to focus on the positives; the reduced hours the team are working allows us plenty of time to keep up-to-date with the latest German kitchen and British kitchen trends, as well as the wider interior design industry. 

We’ve also loved taking the time to look through our portfolio – the past year or so we’ve designed and installed such an exciting array of German and British Kitchens – each client has there own unique needs and we just love being able to create their dream space. Thanks to Schuller (and their premium range, Next125) we’ve been able to create some truly show stopping kitchens. 

The kitchen of the month for May is this simply stunning Schuller/Next125 German kitchen. One of my favourite aspects of this is how well the space is used; the team worked with our client to really understand what is important to them and, ultimately, design, supply and install their dream kitchen. 

The recessed larders helped ensure there was a single clean run of cabinetry, which really adds to the sleek feel of not just the kitchen, but the room as a whole. The lovely velvety cabinetry is framed with wood-effect panels which certainly add a touch of warmth to this large space. 

Another aspect which I love about this kitchen is the seamless flow between the cooking, entertaining and dining space. The island is simply gorgeous, thanks to the clever use of wood-effect niches and lovely Dekton worktop. There are various colours and finishes here, but they blend together wonderfully.

This Schuller kitchen is what a German kitchen is all about; it exudes coolness and personality, while being a highly practical space. 

Of course, we don’t just do German kitchens here at Design A Space. We love supporting British manufacturing, and are very proud to work with Kesseler, who produce both contemporary and traditional shaker and in-frame kitchens. 

Our client is thrilled with their kitchen (which isn’t a suprise – it’s swoon worthy!)

Please do feel free to get in touch to discuss your kitchen project – the Design A Space team would love to create a space perfectly suited to you and your family.
