CASE STUDIES

Sustainable 1930’s Semi, Sheffield

Sheffield homeowners Helen and Greg carried out a complete renovation of their 1930’s semi-detached property, transforming it into a super sustainable, healthy and inspirational family home for five.

With sustainability at the heart of their brief, the family turned to Sheffield Sustainable Kitchens. Their stylish design incorporates reclaimed timber worktops and shelving made from school lab benches, together with base and wall carcases made from a special eco-board which is produced from 100% recycled timber. The flat slab cabinet doors are also sustainable as they are in-house designed and made in Sheffield for low wastage and transportation miles. They are painted in Farrow and Ball’s Parma Grey to complement the warm tones of the timber.

The sink and tap combine modern classics with a practical L-spout tap in brass finish paired with a lustrous white ceramic undermount sink. Keen to maintain a streamlined design on the walls with open shelving, the couple chose an induction hob with an integrated hob extractor which meant they didn’t need a wall-mounted cooker hood.

The kitchen was featured on Channel 4 property makeover series, Ugly House to Lovely House with George Clarke.

Franke’s Neptune swivel spout tap in brass is highly practical and adds a vintage touch to the white Kubus ceramic 1.5 bowl undermount sink.  The Franke Mythos 2gether hob extractor sits flush with the worktop for the ultimate in discreet extraction.
