From small and dark to bright and airy, from the moment the new owners of this Victorian terrace house moved in, refurbishing the kitchen and conservatory was top of their list, with new worktops from CRL Stone being part of the transformation.

Knocking two rooms into one, the owners undertook a full kitchen overhaul, with CRL Quartz Savannah surfaces being matched with new flooring, paintwork, cabinets and island.

With a baby on the way, the couple worked to a tight deadline to make their dreams of a bright, sociable space that worked for nights in, dinner parties and gatherings come true. Future-proofing was also important, with the new space designed to suit the family’s changing needs over time.

The former dark galley kitchen became a large, bright space achieved by using a light, natural palette with natural-looking materials. CRL Quartz Savannah has a marble-inspired look that ties in seamlessly with the wood furniture and stone-effect porcelain tiled flooring. Savannah has the look of marble with its intricate network of unique dark brown flecks contrasted against grey veining. A centre-piece on its own, this luxurious surface, with its warm and inviting appearance uplifts the room.

The worktops are large, measuring 4m along the wall and 2.4m on the island, giving the family ample space for food preparation, dining and entertaining, so it was important that the surface chosen was eye-catching yet would work with the overall palette. The couple fell in love with the limestone hue of CRL Quartz Savannah, the colour and pattern of which works well with the grey cabinets while adding warmth and being extremely hardy to withstand lots of kitchen activity.

Alongside the large worktop, a fitted kitchen with space for their favourite Smeg appliances, plenty of storage and space for dining and a breakfast area at the island were high on the homeowners wish list. With the majority of the storage on one side of the room, the long utility room wall becomes a practical area.

In the finished space, the worktops connect all the other elements of the kitchen and are the most noticeable fixture. This is a kitchen that really is the heart of the home; a versatile space that is calm and soothing during the day, but comes alive after dark.
