Lemon Spice Granite Kitchen Worktops Teddington Middlesex
Mr and Mrs B of Teddington chose Lemon Spice from Pisani of Feltham for their new Howdens kitchen. This very strongly patterned granite is a bold and exciting choice, giving a unique look which no man-made stone could reproduce.
The windowsill is at 107mm height above the worktop, and the upstand has been continued right round the room at this slightly non-standard height.
The peninsular features 300mm curved corner cabinets, and is 1740x950mm in size, with no overhang for a breakfast bar, due to the compact overall size of the kitchen.
THE FINER DETAILS
Howdens Easton Sink
The one-and-a-half bowl Howdens Easton sink has the square style typical of current models, although with small-radius rather than fully square corners, making cleaning easier and more effective. Notice that our cut-out corners mirror the steel beneath.
The classic lines of a swan-necked tap in brushed steel – in this case the Garda from Howdens, which is almost identical to our own Curvato from the 1810 Company.
Full height granite splashback
The full-height splashback fills the wall behind the hob, showing off the striking pattern of the Lemon Spice.
Joins at the Lamona 5-Burner Hob
Due to the overall length of that run, it has joins at the Lamona five-burner hob. This allows for four small joins to replace one long one, and in a material like Lemon Spice they are very unobtrusive – see the inset detail image above, of the right hand end of the hob.
Peninsular Preparation Area
The peninsular offers a wide preparation area (there is no breakfast bar as such) which in a material like Lemon Spice is very striking.
