Concrete and Trilium in Leamington Spa

Client Interview

How did your kitchen project come about?
We’d been in the house for 4 years and wanted more space. We didn’t want to move so we decided to just knock a few walls down...! I was keen to use a local company and BWD was stand out different. Angela and Jeremy were very welcoming and from the very beginning I felt like I was in the hands of experts.

Did you have a clear idea on how you wanted the kitchen to look?
Initially we wanted gloss white with a white marble matt worktop, but we loved the wood in the BWD showroom and then Angela showed me the concrete and I thought ‘that’s it’.

It was brand new to the market and I knew I would regret it if I didn’t have it - combined with Dekton Trilium worktop, it’s gorgeous. The kitchen has so much natural light, it can totally take the warmth of the materials.

      Client Interview

      Do you like to cook?
      I do like to cook, even more so since the new kitchen, and had been to one of the steam cookery demos at the BWD showroom and picked up a few tips. And it’s not just me, my teenage daughter and my mum both say it’s a lovely space to be in, to work in and eat in. It feels like a holiday house with the light floors and glass doors out to the garden. And the kitchen is so easy to clean. The Dekton is very low maintenance and you can put anything on it and it doesn’t damage, even straight from the oven or from the hob. At first we were a little bit wary but we don’t think twice about putting hot pans on it now.

      How do you use the room throughout the day?
      We’ve put the casual armchairs facing out to the garden and that’s a lovely way to start the day, sitting with a cup of tea, looking outside. I wanted to make sure we were all together and whether someone was cooking or sitting down, they weren’t cut off and could still chat with the rest of the family. And it’s a real party house, dinner parties, big gatherings, it’s great. Everyone stands around the island chatting and socialising and then moves to the table to eat. You’re never away from your guests even when you’re cooking or preparing, and you’re never in a different room, wondering what you’re missing. It’s a more inclusive feeling for the guests too. And cooking doesn’t feel like a chore because we do it together. That’s what I wanted, one big open sociable space.
