A sneaky peek!



A busy week at B&B, or should we say, busier that usual!  The reason? We have started fitting our new kitchen display at the showroom. The AGA has been up and running for some weeks now so we are very pleased to be able to finally do it some justice!




Early days but by next week, we'll have a  fully functional kitchen complete with granite counter tops and a working Quooker tap.

Exciting times!

Quooker tap for MasterChef contestants!


 
Here's a behind the scenes shot of the Celebrity MasterChef kitchen. Quooker boiling water taps have been installed into every one of the kitchen's workstations. The Quooker taps are the smaller ones you can see in the sink area and have already received rave reviews from some of the shows contestants!


You can get your Quooker hot water tap through Baker & Baker,
 just pop into the showroom for a demo!

On site with the Baker & Baker team

Just stopped by the site, it's looking fab. Granite being templated today and last of the cabinets being installed. The boys are doing a sterling job, as always! Cakes all round!







Notice how tidy they are!

Blue Eyed Beauty

We are fortunate to be so close to the beautiful city of Cambridge and have been commissioned to work on some fabulous properties there.

The family of this large town house situated on a surprisingly quiet road just outside the city centre, have lived there for more than 20 years.  During this time they have made some considerable improvements, the most recent being a large kitchen extension to the back of the house.

As well as increasing the size of the room, bi fold doors were fitted across the full length of the outside wall, allowing the room to open out into the garden.

Then came the bespoke kitchen and Baker & Baker designs were chosen. The client had a clear idea of how the kitchen should look and how it should work and together, we were able to achieve the desired effect. 


Baker & Baker kitchen in American Black Walnut


The island features a curved breakfast bar.
The chrome, leather seated stools are perfectly suited.


Schock sink with drainer fitted into granite worktop


Free standing dresser with glass display cabinets and granite worktop


Crockery and cutlery drawers in central island


Induction hob set into the worktop with ceiling extractor


'Blue Eyes' granite worktops supplied by Ivett & Reed of Cambridge




Full height cabinet run with eye level oven, microwave, steam oven and warming drawer



And full height larder with additional door rack storage


Bi fold doors leading out to the well kept garden.

 Extending dining table to match kitchen,
made by Baker & Baker


Large and spacious but not cavernous, this room has a lovely feel about it.  The sun floods in through the bi fold doors and the large sky lights above but even on a dull day, the white walls and light limestone tile flooring make the room bright and airy.

Curves in all the right places

Our latest 'Grove' design, recognisable by its elegant curved corners, is proving popular. 

Pictured is the first kitchen to be fitted in the new design.


The cabinets are hand painted in 'Shaded White' from the Farrow and Ball range and have oak knobs


Central island with curved end cabinet and seated area


with round oak chopping board above the curved base cabinet




Large double larder with racks and basket storage


Four oven gas fired Aga with over mantle and tiled splash back


We refinished the existing dresser base in 'Adventurer' from The Little Green Paint Company


Hanging ceiling lights are perfectly suited to the room


and the Kashmir White granite worktops are the crowning glory

Cottage kitchen is pretty as a picture

It was indeed a pleasure to work on this project with a client who had recently bought the property, in need of some updating, including a total kitchen renovation.


The original kitchen had limited cabinet space and the dark walls made the room seem smaller.



Choosing pale colours on the walls and kitchen cabinets has opened up the room and helps reflects the natural light.

There is a real summer feel about the place.


The client chose 'Pale Powder' from the Farrow & Ball range with Kashmir White granite tops


The Everhot range oven and the Suffolk Pamment floor tiles from Bromley & Fitch
add to the country kitchen feel. 



Hand made, hand painted tiles by Alice Gibbons


The regency style chairs and gate legged table are a lovely addition to the room.
