The Victoria Road NW6 Kitchen

Just far enough out of town to feel a little bit rural, with farmers markets, festivals and tree-lined streets, people love Queens Park. This really spacious kitchen is right in the centre of Queens Park, a beautiful period property that has been transformed into a very stylish family home.

The first thing you notice about this kitchen is its bold expanses of natural stone. The huge wall of Carrara marble is not ostentatious but beautifully practical, it contrasts so well with the thick handsome slab of Belgian blue limestone. The Pantry Blue painted cupboards seem grand and big in this space, hiding away fridges and storage, they allow the walls to be free of cupboards which gives the room a more grown up feel. Everything felt as if it would last forever; the beautiful French range cooker by Lacanche, the under-mounted copper sinks and deVOL's Aged Brass taps. Even the parquet flooring looked as if it could be there in a hundred years. We love to see our Shaker cupboards being used in such impressive homes; people have chosen the best materials and products to furnish their houses, knowing that they will age well and can be enjoyed for many years. When you do up a property, especially in London, you are adding style and value to your home, so it really is worth seeking out quality as it will repay you in so many ways in the future. deVOL cupboards are seen as a very cool product. Designers and people who want something a little bit special but affordable think our cupboards are the perfect choice.
