Delightful Cottage Kitchen in Devon Longhouse

This delightful cottage kitchen set in a Devon longhouse oozes charm and character.

We love looking back at some of our past projects. This two-tone classic shaker kitchen set in an old Devon longhouse is an absolute gem! It has so much character we couldn’t resist showing you more. 

The kitchen was part of a loving restoration of an old Devon longhouse

The kitchen was part of a loving restoration of an old Devon longhouse and offers a twist on the cottage kitchen theme.  

Working closely with the client, we chose a classic two-tone colour scheme using ‘Shade white’ and ‘Royal blue’ to ensure the kitchen didn’t become too dark. The ‘Royal blue’ is also used on the kitchen island which is paired with a statement copper worktop for a truly bespoke look. 

This kitchen is all about bringing the old and new together to create a totally unique and charming living space.  Of particular note is the use of old and historic materials throughout the kitchen.  The rustic doors are a nod to local history, sourced by the client from the famous Dartmoor Jail. They add a gothic twist to this cottage kitchen that brings a totally new dimension.

Kettle Co designed and fitted apple crate drawers in the kitchen island using locally made antique crates

We also designed and fitted the apple crate drawers in the kitchen island using locally made antique crates. They add some useful storage to the kitchen island whilst adding to the rustic aesthetic running throughout the kitchen. 

The bespoke copper worktops were supplied by us and were left unlacquered so that they will develop a patina effect over time. We carefully matched the sockets, switches and handles to complete the look. We really love how the kitchen island lighting illuminates the copper worktop. It’s a beautiful finishing touch. 

The limited lighting in older properties is always a challenge but we have plenty of experience in dealing with properties like this. 

We carefully positioned the sink around the window to make the most of the natural lighting. The light and airy colour choices for the doors, quartz worktops and tiling all work together to brighten up the area. We also added some downlights beneath the wooden beams to make sure this busy part of the kitchen always has enough light.

“We are really proud of this unique kitchen design and it’s always a pleasure to work with period properties like this. It’s so rewarding to design a kitchen that blends so many historic elements into a modern shaker kitchen.”
