A 100cm range cooker in a family kitchen [kitchen case study]

22ND MAY 2012
What is the best way to design a family kitchen? The brief for this family kitchen was challenging because of the flexibility required for family living.

The L shaped kitchen, at a customer’s house near Bristol, features a separate fridge section and a mobile island. The 100cm Sigma XG and matching gloss black Brioso cooker hood complement the dark granite worktops. The gloss black colour of the 100cm range cooker stands out nicely against the light cabinets.

Paul Fernside, of Robson Ward, said the biggest challenge in creating this kitchen was incorporating a family dining table. He explained: “We had to work around some awkward areas, but due to the bespoke cabinetry this was easy to overcome. The island was made to be mobile so they could turn it around and have more flexibility depending on how the room was being used.”

Finding a range cooker to suit the family space proved less of a challenge. Paul said: “My customer was adamant she wanted a Britannia, so I didn't really have to do much convincing! She is keen on cooking and had done a lot of research beforehand, so had ruled out the competition before she even came to us.”
