As we celebrate Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II during her Platinum Jubilee month, we thought what better time to showcase some of our most elegant and regal kitchen renovation projects? We are proud to celebrate our heritage as a great British kitchen and interiors company, and, over the course of the last 35 years, we’ve worked with our wonderful clients from across the nation to bring their kitchen dreams to life. With our passion for traditional and classic interiors, we think our kitchens are truly fit for a queen.
To inject a sense of opulence into your kitchen design, consider warm, earthy tones like this beautiful shade of red. This pantry unit, along with the hatches beneath the original bread ovens and a bank of pegs in this client’s hallway, was painted in Farrow & Ball shade ‘Eating Room Red’. This rich hue instantly evokes a feeling of grandeur in any space. If you’re blessed with a large kitchen, do not be afraid to inject colour into the design. By sticking to richer tones, rather than cool greys, primary or pastel colours, the design becomes more timeless and traditional.
And what better tone to anoint your home with than the shade Queen Elizabeth uses to decorate many of her own royal homes and residences?
This beautiful kitchen is fit for any palace, with its elegant and striking units – painted in Little Greene shade ‘Tusk’. This is a stunning off-white shade that opens up the space and welcomes you in. With a bank of tall windows at one end of the room, this hue really lends itself to the open-plan design of the space. And with the added opulence of the splashback and neutral finish of the worktops, the design feels timeless. At Christopher Peters, we specialise in traditional concepts and colour palettes that won’t date. In our view, you can’t get any more classic than this.
Bright whites, bones and creams are great options for opening up smaller spaces because the eye is immediately drawn to the almost reflective surface of the units. But by injecting warmer tones into your appliances, as shown here, or your worktop accessories, you can put your own stamp on the space.
A beautiful blue hue and, according to some, the Queen’s favourite colour! This kitchen project, which we completed last year, incorporated neutral tones with the striking blue of the island unit. Painted in Little Greene’s ‘Hicks Blue’, this combines traditional design with a Scandi-inspired aesthetic. Bringing such a vivid colour into the kitchen allows for fun and complementary accessories to be brought into the space, making the room feel more cohesive and polished overall.
Our favourite thing about the completed design? The way we maximised the space by opening up all corners of the room, combining practicality and luxury. If you really want to live like a royal, well then, we think this is the best way to go about it.
So, whether it is the catering kitchen of Buckingham Palace, or a more intimate space at Hillsborough Castle – or the homely kitchen in your own four walls – we can make any regal kitchen dream become a reality.
