Kitchen Case Study: Davonport – Bespoke Opulence

Wow Factor Brief

You may have seen our recent Kitchen Case Study from our Studio Partner Davonport – a step inside their stunning transformation of a 1990’s home in Essex. We are thrilled to show you another example of this expert teams’ skill at delivering beautiful bespoke living spaces. This Kitchen Case Study showcases a transformation that exudes opulence and glamour.

The brief from Davonports’ client was very exciting, Mrs M wanted her dream kitchen to be completely unique and truly deliver a wow-factor, as well as add value to her home. After conducting her own research, Mrs M knew that a bespoke Davonport kitchen was just what she needed.

The Show Stopper

The show-stopper in this Kitchen Case Study is obvious. The floating kitchen island commands attention as soon as you enter the living space, with its bespoke design creating both awe and intrigue. Mrs M describes “I was desperate to have a totally unique kitchen island, so when Richard came up with the design that featured a floating island and had found a way to construct what I was looking for, it was so exciting”.

Davonports’ Belgravia kitchen style became the inspiration for the furniture design, with beautifully contrasting white hand-painted cabinets against walnut features.

Bespoke Floating Island

This luxurious aesthetic was enhanced even further by the level of detail in the silver bead on the door and walnut detailing on the curved cupboard end panels on the island. It is these unique cupboards that provide support for the central section of the island, creating a spectacular bridge effect. The entire “floating” island is curved, with a gentle bow profile adding the finishing touch to a bespoke, functional design feature with unique visual impact.

Enhanced opulence and illumination

Reflecting the eye-catching shape of the island, is the ceiling box, concealing the extractor above the induction hob. Framing these exquisite features are two chandeliers, enhancing the opulence of the living space whilst providing the desired illumination, supported by spotlights dotted throughout for added practicality. To enhance this further, Davonport fitted spotlights along the kitchen plinths and added colour changing lights, concealed above the cupboards – another design feature to wow guests.

Unapologetic glamour

Framed by impressive mantel, the rangecooker stands proudly, looking just as grand as its striking surroundings. Behind the cooker, protected by toughened glass, sits a television – the final flourish to this unapologetically glamourous kitchen.

To create this beautiful bespoke kitchen, the Davonport team combined client vision and their own expert knowledge to deliver a functional living space with wow factor. To find out more about Davonport, visit their Studio Partner profile.
