Award-winning British designer and manufacturer of custom fitted furniture, Daval, makes a statement with this Mayfair Bronze split level kitchen-living space, designed and made-to-order for a newly renovated family home in West Yorkshire.

Contemporary by design, the main living area is designed as one large room, which is then split over two levels to create an independent kitchen and living space that remains open and benefits from excellent airflow and added light.

Simon Bodsworth, Managing Director at Daval Furniture says, “The brief for this project was to create a sleek kitchen that complements the large open-plan living space and clients’ love of modern art and abstract design pieces. Again re-emphasising the trend for personalisation in the home, we knew the raw contemporary nature of Mayfair Bronze furniture would create the perfect foundation for elevated levels of interior design and finishing.”

Mayfair Bronze is characterised by its sophisticated mineral effect finish, adding a textured effect and a layer of luxury to the super-sized kitchen island unit and back run of cabinets. As the homeowner wanted plenty.

of storage space without lots of wall cupboards, the design cleverly combines extra-tall storage and top units, which are made to measure to fit seamlessly under the awkwardly placed sloping roof.  

James Bodsworth, Design Director at Daval Furniture said,  “We incorporated an oversized island unit into the main kitchen design, discreetly housing two dishwashers which can be used on rotation as and when required. To not sacrifice valuable storage space, we designed the unit with four extra deep drawers on the opposite side to create new areas to store essential kitchen and cook ware.

“The island is topped with the client’s own choice of work surface; however, we chose to fully illuminate the space under the countertop with bead lighting to create a floating effect. For the ultimate cook station, we also specified designer plug sockets by Bora into the island to create extra power outlets with industrial style fixtures and fittings to perfectly match the raw nature of our Mayfair Bronze furniture.”

To extend the main worktops, the island unit accommodates space for a modestly sized wet zone complete with a Matrix R15 one and a half bowl stainless steel sink by Abode, along with a Chrome Fusion Round boiling water tap by Quooker. The cook zone benefits from a Bora concealed extractor with flush-mounted cooktop, and either side sit two fully integrated ovens by Fisher & Paykel in modern black glass.

To finish, integrated lighting illuminates the cooking area, all supported by a thoughtful arrangement of generous fitted base units, drawers, and top units for even more storage capacity.

Delivering on both style and substance, this modern kitchen provides a series of high-organisation storage solutions including the latest must-have item on everyone’s wish list, the day pantry.

Contributing to daily family life, this full height day pantry features a sequence of shelves including one large middle shelf, which they use to house small appliances like their microwave and food processor.

Perfect to work as a food management system too, the top shelves are perfect for storing cupboard essentials like bread, coffee, eggs, spreads and jams for one-stop cooking and snacking. Beneath sit two Legrabox pull-out drawers with high load bearing capacity, making them perfect for storing heavier items like bottles or tins.

With the dining table just the other side of the island unit, it’s easy to serve dishes using plates from the dedicated crockery and glassware cupboard located on back right or serve tray bakes and roasts straight from the oven.

A contemporary sideboard finished in Varenna Cuban Oak and Talpa creates a contrast of colour between the kitchen and dining area, echoing the two-tone island unit by featuring the same finishes just in reverse! Introducing extra storage space for fine porcelain and table linens, this freestanding sideboard is a lifestyle-friendly addition to any room that needs to cater to multiple everyday needs and large family gatherings. 

Built from sustainably sourced materials and precision engineered in Britain, the Mayfair Furniture Collection by Daval is made-to-order and made-to-measure. Prices start from £12,500+vat with this project costing £38,000+vat, excluding installation.
