Kitchen/Bathrooms/Fitted Furniture - Whitstable

The project is for three stunning houses, each over 360sqm, with panoramic views over the golf course. Island wall is one of the most sought-after roads in Whitstable with such immediate access to the coastline and to Whitstable high street with boutique shops and award-winning restaurants whilst remaining a fifteen-minute walk from the station, meaning a commute in to London is just over an hour.
The luxury houses will at first floor all have 4 large en-suite bedrooms, along with a beautiful master bedroom suite, all linked by a light filled landing and all with amazing views and Juliet balconies. The upper ground floor will house a large open plan kitchen, with 4m long island, living and dining space along with prep kitchen. A separate living area will give the residents ultimate flexibility. Surrounding decks and balconies overlook the golf course or lead out to the gardens. The lower ground floor will house the double garage, utility space and flexible living for home cinema room, home office and gym.

Stoneham Kitchen - Canterbury

Roger and Margaret approached us in November 2017 about having their kitchen remodelled, but were apprehensive.  Relocating to Canterbury, their past experiences of kitchen showrooms was not good.  Having now "done the rounds' in the city they were weary of trying to find exactly what they wanted. Not just in terms of product, and design but getting a straight forward itemised quotation.  

Throughout the process we worked closely with them, through the design process to achieve their brief, leading to completion of the project. Roger and Margaret knew what they wanted and were keen to have a bespoke kitchen incorporating their specific details.   Our Stoneham furniture was the answer and we were able to accomplish things such as specific door thicknesses, tailored paint colour & finish, and a purpose designed pantry. 

Stoneham are a family owned Royal Warranted bespoke kitchen manufacturer, based in Kent for over 100 years.   We offer a broad range of furniture styles from classical to contemporary, through to the latest fashions. Whether timber, painted or the most cutting-edge laminate technology we have just about most specifications covered. 

Below the first 4 images are the initial perspectives that Gary our Chief Designer produced followed by pictures of the actual kitchen. Whilst we can offer hand drawn plans and perspectives, the 3D Colour rendering of our CAD software which really helps clients to visualise what can be achieved in your space. 

Working with Roger & Margaret was an absolute pleasure, and we wish them every happiness in their new home.

When we approached Designed Interiors, we had quite strong views as to what we wanted to achieve with a new kitchen – modern, streamlined and fully functional, and creating a clear visual division between the open plan kitchen and living room areas.

Working closely with Gary, an enthusiastic and creative designer, and incorporating the flexibility and bespoke options available from Stoneham, the final design exceeded our expectations.

The kitchen installation was managed by Clive, a real craftsman with a can do and solution orientated attitude.  It was a real pleasure to have Clive in our home, and the finished kitchen exudes quality.

Dean from the Canterbury showroom kept us fully informed as the installation progressed, and Company Director Darren was involved with the process when necessary to ensure that all went smoothly.

The result is that we are both extremely satisfied customers who strongly recommend the combination of Designed Interiors and Stoneham.

Designed by Guy Hollaway, Kent’s eminent (RIBA award winning) architect, this project was the development of a 1.5 acre brownfield site outside Canterbury. 

The scheme which comprises a house, annex and office is a modern interpretation of a Kentish farmstead which uses quality building materials to provide an exemplar development that has been recommended for the RIBA & Grand Designs home of the year.

Kitchen/Bathroom/Bedroom - Canterbury

Project: Beer Cart Building Redevelopment 14 APARTMENTS AND 8 OFFICE SUITES

Our client purchased  15,000sq.ft of derelict office block. Occupying a prime spot within the city walls of Canterbury, this mixed use scheme of 14 apartments and 8 office suites, all with parking involved the conversion and extension of the existing building 

to create a warehouse inspired development that has become the finest residential and commercial address in the city.

Through inspired design, which incorporated sumptuous roof terraces, the scheme has set records for the highest £per sq.ft ever recorded in Canterbury at over £500per sq.ft and the most expensive apartment at over £1m.

Designed Interiors was instructed specifically to specify and design interior details throughout the Penthouse occupying the entire roof area of 1 Beer Cart lane 

We were also delighted to be instructed to supply a functional staff kitchen area with Amtico flooring for our friends at Bang & Oulfsen Canterbury 

Our shareholder was thrilled to be part of a small consortium who secure local ownership of this important site for future generations.
