Two Bedroom Flat, Hackney, London…

When the enquiry first came in the team wondered what to expect.  The two bedroomed, one bathroom, slightly run down flat in Hackney was going to prove a challenge in maximising not only the space but the storage too. The clients only request was for a bath to be included, and could it be a jacuzzi one too, otherwise Kingsey Kitchens had carte blanche.


The team set to and worked on the floor plan, including the cupboard in the hallway. Very soon it all started to come together.  From the front door to the windows at the rear of the property nothing was left untouched.  Walls came down, new electrics were installed, anthracite windows were installed, new doors throughout including the front door. One of the most noticeable transformations that Kingsey Kitchens & Interiors made was to lower the high ceilings so that the lighting could be could be improved upon and strategically placed throughout the flat. The re-configured space took on a whole new feeling, the master bedroom with an ensuite bathroom, including the jacuzzi bath, fabulous purpose built wardrobes and storage and not forgetting a TV that can be viewed from the bed.  Tones of gold, bronze, white and ………… were used to bring the walls, flooring and soft furnishing together.    The second bedroom, whilst smaller was designed to take a double bed with cleaver storage underneath and built in wardrobes.  A second shower room was allowed for and the cupboard in the hallway became a small utility room housing the washing machine and tumble dryer. The lounge with its media wall and study area links into the open plan kitchen area.  Again to maximise storage a sofa bed with an additional storage section was chosen and Kingsey then designed a very clever coffee table that has a top that rises up so that you can sit and eat off it should you wish, not forgetting that there is storage underneath too. The kitchen even has a bespoke, special coloured splashback to compliment the mauve and purple tones chosen by the team when deciding on the fabric to dress the windows and make the cushions for in the lounge.  There’s a boiling hot tap, so need for a kettle messing up the work top. The bespoke breakfast bar has the benefit of additional storage on the side facing into the lounge. The new kitchen needed an extractor fan which had to be a re-circulating style fan, but it needed to be discrete so as not to spoil the line of the kitchen, so an extractor no bigger than the size of a small television was chosen.  The media wall and kitchen colours blend and bring the space together and the team used key elements to highlight the rooms feature such as copper coloured lights, under plinth led lights and concrete grey kitchen doors to give the space a texture, a lit display section on the lounge side of the space. The team pulled all the elements together for this flat from the doormat at the front door, the window dressings, cushions, throws, duvet covers, towels, pictures, mirrors through to glasses, mugs, crockery and cutlery – not forgetting making all the bespoke elements in each room, including the kitchen.
