Winning combinations often come along in pairs! There are many examples, whether it be from the worlds of business, sport or entertainment but there are just as many in terms of design and home improvement.
This orangery kitchen extension is no exception. Featuring a solid wood painted orangery from David Salisbury, paired with a bespoke kitchen from the market leaders Tom Howley, the result was certainly a winner for this customer.
An orangery kitchen extension remains one of our most popular forms of design request and we always take great pleasure in creating the additional space to allow for a larger kitchen and the type of open plan living to which many of us aspire.
Expertly designed by Simon Phipps, one of David Salisbury’s most experienced and successful sales designers, this is another good example of our orangery designs blending in perfectly and working in harmony with the existing home and surrounding environment.
As Simon noted: “The brief for this project was fairly simple: to create a larger open plan kitchen, dining and living space. However, the practicalities of achieving the brief were complex. The existing kitchen incorporated a central steel post to support a portion of the kitchen roof which created a significant amount of unusable space. Narrow French doors led out into small timber conservatory which wasn't utilised as part of the house. The solution involved some considerable engineering, with steel beams spanning the width of a new knock-through and the depth of the house to remove the existing pillar in the kitchen.”
Simon designed the orangery to sit perfectly into the corner of the house with a low-pitched lantern roof, which ensures the views from the first floor dormer window are not affected. Wide French doors with full height panels either side allow the doors to fold open fully and link the new kitchen and orangery to the outside space.
