Victorian Kitchen Design


This Victorian house in Oxfordshire underwent a full refurbishment and the client was hugely open to ideas for their new family kitchen design.  They were looking for something different, something unique, something that would breathe new life into this period property, a prospect that Nick relished.

The Bucknowle design is a new cabinetry design from Guild Anderson.  It was developed from a dressing room previously designed for another client and Nick felt that the style and beauty of it could be progressed into a kitchen.

Tall cabinets make use of the ceiling height in this Victorian kitchen

The cabinetry style with its round corner posts follow the cabinet full height to create a beautiful softening effect on the room.

The Caeserstone Noble Grey worktop also follows the curves, the rounded shapes offer a tactile finish with the ergonomic lines subtly curving and flowing throughout the design.

Oak legs and recessed plinths are a feature of this kitchen design

Bespoke details

There is a lightness of touch to this Victorian kitchen design.  All of the cabinetry even the tall run, stand on fine oak legs with a recessed plinth.  This oak is colour matched to the hand painted cabinets.

This slice of oak running the length of the tall cabinets creates a natural break within the design in what would otherwise be a huge piece of painted storage.

It is these bespoke features that make this kitchen a unique Guild Anderson design.

The tiled antique vintage mirror glass which is splashed behind the Everhot 120i, makes a nod back to this home’s Victorian heritage.

Practicality comes in the form of a Fisher & Paykel french door fridge freezer and a Miele Pureline steam oven.

Paint Colours

The aesthetic of this Victorian kitchen design is everything.  While the external doors and drawers are painted in Little Greene French Grey Pale, the interiors are painted in a bright contrasting colour; Little Greene Heat, adding a touch of zing compared to the cool exterior.

The Bucknowle design is now one of the most requested designs our clients ask for when designing their bespoke kitchen.
