KAT AND DES
Kat and Des browsed through Pinterest board after Pinterest board until they found the perfect kitchen inspiration for their home. From there, they visited the System Six showroom where they were able to create their dream kitchen.
WHY SYSTEM SIX?
Des and Kat chose to source their kitchen through System Six as they liked everything from the website to the local manufacturing. During their research, Des and Kat learned System Six acts as a kitchen supplier to other retailers on a wholesale basis. This instilled the confidence in them that System Six Kitchens produce high quality products and are a reliable business.
After completing their research, the couple visited the System Six showroom. From the moment they met their designer, Carly, Des and Kat were extremely impressed with her professionalism and detailed approach.
By visiting the showroom and meeting with Carly, the positive image Kat and Des gleaned from their online research was solidified. Kat and Des were impressed the kitchens were manufactured locally, they felt the price was reasonable and they liked many of the styles and finishes available. Overall, the couple felt System Six were very professional and provided a service ideal for their needs.
After their very first visit, Kat and Des chose to source a kitchen from System Six.
When it came down to design, Kat and Des had a fairly strong idea of the style of kitchen they wanted within their home. Kat coined the look as “ultra-modern hippy”, a style inspired by endless scrolling on Pinterest and defined by their very own completed kitchen. The couple wanted something contemporary, which meant plenty of lighting, a social layout, and a seamless, flowing design. Organic materials and strong wood grains generated a bohemian feel, creating warmth, texture, and character.
To begin their dream design, Kat provided Carly with an image they liked and from this Carly was able to create a bespoke design which included all the elements they wanted for their home. The image provided inspiration for the narrow bank of recessed wall units, which stretches between the fridge and the integrated ovens.
Timber was a feature they knew they wanted within their kitchen, which is why Des and Kat chose the Linden Tobacco Halifax Oak door. They additionally liked that the door was on trend, but still provided a timeless look. It was exactly the feel they were after. After taking home samples, Kat and Des were able to live with them and ensure the colours and styles were exactly to their taste. The Linden door also had the bonus of being manufactured locally by System Six Kitchens, which meant a quicker lead time and a better price point than European alternatives.
Carly additionally designed the space so the cabinets surrounding the free-standing fridge freezer were sitting flush with the large appliance. This maintained the contemporary, seamless approach of the design whilst making full use of the made-to-measure door style chosen.
Kat and Des found they worked well with Carly. Carly helped to incorporate each idea of Des and Kat’s and ultimately, was able to create something better than any of them could have managed alone.
However, it wasn’t just the aesthetics of the kitchen Carly was able to help with. Carly made several suggestions for the functionality of the kitchen to ensure the space was designed in line with their lifestyle and how they intended to use the kitchen. Kat and Des found everything Carly steered them towards when it came to the little details, regarding placement, size, and general functionality of the design, was perfect. After two months of living in the space, they realised she was spot on in her advice and wouldn’t alter any of the suggestions she made.
