Lifestyle Kitchen in Colchester

The recent installation of this Lifestyle Kitchen in Colchester is from our Caledonian range and features solid Ash doors, all hand painted in Farrow & Ball ‘All White’.  The homeowners explained that they wanted a clean neutral palette that would not go out of fashion over the coming years, and something that they could change their accessories to reflect any changes in style and colour.  They are loving the clean finish of the ‘All White’ doors they’ve chosen white accessories for now!



Tec-Lifestyle offer design and installation or design and supply options. This customer chose to use one of our trusted installers who, because they are used to working with the products, are able to customise the fit to deal with any little quirks in the layout and design of your home.  In this case they created an extra storage area at the end the run of cupboards to make sure the room all tied in together.


The kitchen features a range of Neff products including the ‘hide’n’slide’ oven (made famous on the Great British Bake Off), a combo microwave oven, a gas hob, extractor, warming drawer and fridge freezer.


The oven set up is the Nef ‘Hide n Slide’ oven with a Combi Microwave oven above and the ever popular warming drawer below – honestly we have yet to find a home owner that does not sing the praises of this option!



With no utility room this kitchen also had to house the washing machine and make sure that every inch of storage was utilised.  They also have the bin drawer a necessity in this age of recycling – why have a gorgeous new kitchen and then have horrible bins on display?




A feature of this kitchen and to be honest an example of the quality of the product is the lining of each of the cupboards – a finishing touch that makes all the difference.


Lastly the sink and taps are by Blanco and they are set into the Silestone work surface.  The draining board cut into the work surface and the splash backs also in Silestone add to the clean lines of this design and are perfect finishing touches.




Taking of finishing touches what better than the final fruits of the summer – so much nicer to look at than washing up liquid and cleaning sponges!
