Mr & Mrs Philalithis’ Sophisticated Family Kitchen in Blackheath


“Mr & Mrs Philalithis wanted an open family space. The huge island allows their children to do homework whilst they cook away. Adding seating under the window has also made a great use of the space!” Lara Kerslake, Designer

The Client’s Brief

Mr and Mrs Philalithis bought a Ream kitchen 17-years ago. They loved the quality of the design but felt it was no longer working for their family lifestyle and also felt the aesthetic needed modernising. They decided to reconnect with our fantastic team once more, to create a new interior that would capture the essence of their evolved style and family life.

The Project

Clean Strada Gloss cabinetry in Cashmere and Graphite brings a minimal yet luxurious tone to the room. Striking mirror finish gloss splashbacks really help to open up the space. The Karndean lime-washed oak effect flooring adds an on-trend touch of Scandinavian chic. Our clients use the island and breakfast bar regularly for cooking while the kids finish their homework.



Bespoke benches beneath the window transform the space both in terms of looks and functionality. An additional media seat provides the perfect place for Mrs Philalithis to sit and flick through recipes on her tablet.


Life After The Journey

From the fabulous kitchen island to the tailormade bench seating, Mr and Mrs Philalithis enjoy using all the wonderful elements of their new kitchen every day. Needless to say, our design has transformed their home and lifestyle.
