Carpenter Ward was called upon for the installation of a bespoke kitchen in Dunblane. This project required a range of specialist services including novel underfloor heating, structural work as well as electrical, plastering, and joinery.
The kitchen design required four rooms to be knocked into one large room with bespoke structural steel beams with brackets installed within the upstairs joists allowing the beams to remain hidden within the existing ceiling.
The flooring was fully removed, and metal diffusion plate based underfloor heating system was installed thereby maintaining the floor height with the rest of the house. A rustic engineered oak flooring was installed to give a traditional look and allow the underfloor heating to work efficiently. All walls and ceilings were lined and plastered, and reproduction plaster coving, mouldings and facings were installed in keeping with the original design of the house.
With the kitchen units and granite worktops installed, the 3 large rustic light pendants over the seating area and little ship downlights in each of the glass doored wall cupboards created a soft but industrial ambience to the room. The panelled door was modified to allow visibility from the main hall into the kitchen through the use of glazed panels. The finishing touch was the design and installation of a bespoke vintage leather chesterfield sofa which gives any pet the perfect seating area to enjoy the luxury.
Carpenter Ward’s unrivalled expertise and highly reputable network of sub-contractors resulted in the kitchen being completed to meticulous detail and the kitchen was later published within Homes & Interiors Scotland.
