Broadway Buckingham Victorian Kitchen 2

A new traditional kitchen design concept infusing hand-painted finishes and natural oak. Based on the popular Broadway Victorian Buckingham design.

Working with Broadway’s father and son design team, Satt and Sunny Sembhy, a classical kitchen design was created, incorporating traditional design clues such as a raised and fielded, plant-on door design, reeded pilasters, ornate cornicing and planked end panels. Whilst this might sound relatively ordinary, there is far more to this kitchen design than immediately meets the eye.

The kitchen features ‘Microstone’ – concrete worktops and splashbacks. This is something relatively new to the UK and a specialist process perfected by Broadway which involves manufacturing, casting, colouring and sealing on site. Not only does this represent something a little different to the more usual, tried and tested, granite approach but you also have no visible joins in the surface. Furthermore, you have the flexibility to continue the process onto the walls and around windows.

Close inspection of the worktops reveals exquisite details such as texture with a specialist gold leaf and grey paint finish.

Integrated into the worktops are no fewer than four S-Boxes; a double award-winning product available from Broadway (see photos above). The S-Boxes use the otherwise wasted void behind a base cabinet for additional pop up accessories; in this case two additional 3-pin socket boxes, a knife box and a spice rack. These S-Boxes prevent worktop ‘clutter’ as well as giving pop-up power sockets, utensils and cooking ingredients as and when you want; immediately to hand. The kinetic (non-electric) pop-up ‘S-Box’ mechanism is simply activated by the push of a finger. The box is then pushed back down when not in use.

With maximum family use, socialising, relaxing and dining all in mind, the kitchen was meticulously planned. Informal dining comes in the form of a round, oak breakfast bar, incorporated into the peninsula island, whilst a custom-made oak table with matching oak bench seating offers the opportunity of a more formal dining arrangement.
