Clean bright kitchen design
Virtually all of our designs are a collaboration between our customers and our furniture designers and we love working with customers that have a vision and passion for their project. This is exactly how Cherry Stevens from Petersfield in Hampshire felt when planning her new kitchen.
‘I had a very definite idea of what I wanted to achieve. I was looking for a complete change, something clean, modern and uncluttered whilst not being ‘clinical’.’
Bringing ‘the outdoors inside’ has been a growing trend over the last few years and looks set to continue into 2013. For some this will involve taking down dividing walls, developing large multi-purpose living spaces and large glass doors or walls to the outdoors. However, in many homes this may not feasible or even desirable.
Bringing the outdoors inside can be a more subtle design and build exercise such as in this case. Our Conquest designers complimented the natural wooden floor and cream units by adding cabinetry with a rich, polished Cordoba Olive finish. As well as making the connection with the outdoors and natural textures, it also brought added warmth into the design. By minimising wall cabinets we were able to ensure that the natural light would flood the kitchen unimpeded. We love the floating shelf lights and the delightful gravity-defying wine bottle which adds a slightly Dali-esque touch to the design.
‘I love Dali and wanted to bring something of his style and mischief into the new kitchen. It’s good to be a bit different and with Conquest there are no hard and fast rules. They have a ‘can-do’ attitude and when they say they will do something, they do it. It was the fact that Conquest employed their own fitters directly that swayed me and the fitters were so nice and pleasant I was almost sad when they left.’

It is the painstaking attention to detail that ensures that all Conquest units and cabinets fit perfectly and drawers run true.
Floating shelf lights make a stylish feature as well as providing warm lighting.
Our solid granite work tops are the perfect example of form meeting function beautifully. They provide a fantastic surface for food preparation and last a lifetime, looking as good as the day they were fitted.
