A recently renovated family home, located in the heart of a Yorkshire village. The brief was to create a functional space with the whole family in mind that would be able accommodate their needs and wants for many years to come. The house needed to be welcoming with an emphasis on creating flow and cohesion throughout. Wolds were instructed to carry out the design, manufacture and installation of the Kitchen, Bar, Utility, Boot Room and ground floor WC.

The Kitchen

Our clients wanted a kitchen that was stylish and clutter free. Ample and clever storage was key to the brief, allowing for smaller appliances to be hidden away from view. Our design team set to work developing their dream kitchen. We incorporated full length larder units with light up LED upon opening, a breakfast bar featuring bi-fold doors, integrated chopping board and oak tray within the cabinetry, corner cupboards with pull out shelving for easy access and a functional island with plenty of room for seating and entertaining.

Painted in Farrow & Ball Pavilion Gray, with the island in Farrow & Ball Hague Blue. Featuring a beautiful verona gold quartz worktop and finished with antique brass ironmongery. We opted for an antique mirrored splashback behind the oven, which beautifully reflects and enhances the natural light and space from the large windows at the opposite side.

The Bar

Right from the beginning our clients emphasised their love of entertaining. There was an area near the kitchen which we all agreed was a perfect opportunity to incorporate a fitted bar, a great space to create a social and relaxed area. The cabinetry was painted in the same colour as the kitchen island to connect the two spaces, we incorporated a wine fridge and additional storage. We wanted this area to have a real wow factor and chose the same antiqued mirror to enhance the natural light and airy feel to the room. The solid oak shelves with feature lighting add a touch of atmospheric drama to an evening.

The Utility and Boot Room

Continuing with the feeling of flow and cohesion the utility and boot room needed to provide plenty of storage, be durable and work hard to suit the needs and lifestyle of this busy young family. As the utility and boot room were both open plan to the rest of the downstairs, the space needed to hideaway noisy appliances such as the tumble dryer and washing machine. The brief was to create an area which would look great and offer an exciting insight of the style, tone, and interior décor to the rest of the home.


Working with our clients we opted for a mixture of storage, which included full length cupboards, internal adjustable shelving, open shelving, log storage, a seat to provide a handy perch when removing boots and shoes, tongue and groove panelling featuring a convenient shelf and dolly pegs for additional hanging. We felt the balance was just right in creating a space that was highly functional yet looked welcoming. All painted in Farrow & Ball Green Smoke.

The WC

The brief for the WC was bold, characterful, and fun. Half height tongue and groove panelling painted in the same colour as the boot room and utility for a sense of consistency. Feature wallpaper in a bold jungle print, Burlington sanitaryware and art deco style lighting to enhance the distinctive mood.
