Bespoke Urban-Style Kitchens

Our Urban home design and custom kitchens are a stylish addition to any modern interior.

What is an Urban Kitchen?

Urban kitchens are defined by their clean lines and contemporary style. Urban kitchen design focuses on versatile and liveable spaces that exude style and sophistication. Whether you live in a central townhouse, a city flat or a rural cottage, an Urban-style kitchen embodies modern luxury.

The minimalist and streamlined aesthetic of Urban kitchen design makes it ideal for open-plan homes or smaller kitchens. They can make a small space feel bigger and allow more room for kitchen appliances.

The Urban kitchen design showcases beautifully smooth finished cabinetry and slim handles. It provides a multi-purpose hub to not only prepare meals, but also to gather with family and friends. You can create extra surface space for dining or socialising in your bespoke kitchen with breakfast bars and kitchen islands.

Urban-style kitchens often incorporate composite stone, quartz, granite or manmade materials with metallic or glossy finishes. The effect is an uncluttered space for the whole family to enjoy.

Crafted Cabinetry

As with all our bespoke kitchens, the Urban’s design offers everything you need to create a cohesive modern space.

Urban kitchens are available in two varieties: lay-on and in-frame. Lay-on doors and drawers deliver seamless, minimal lines. Alternatively, visually stunning in-frame doors with a matte finish create a timeless and sophisticated feel.

Finishes & Colour

Painted cabinets in a neutral colour palette work well in Urban kitchens, but adding some bold colours in a glossy finish is also a popular design trend for contemporary kitchens at the moment. An accent colour on the inside back wall of a kitchen unit will add depth and visual appeal. Our Urban kitchen designs feature a choice of 14 carefully selected gloss colours that are hand polished to the highest of standards. We also offer a colour palette of over 80 unique satin eggshell colours for a delicate porcelain finish.

Part of the beauty of designing a living space is that it is such a collaborative process: My customer’s dreams and requirements take centre stage, and then we jointly shape a room that expresses their personality, looks beautiful and – in the case of a kitchen - does much of the hard work as well.

Our free kitchen design service plays a crucial part in creating a space tailored to your exact requirements.
