Project Ealing.

The challenges of any kitchen are to make sure, it is the heart of the family and connecting with the family’s home.  

Starting the design process by having a design meeting with the clients and seeing the plans of the kitchen to start the concept design. Working closely with the clients, Cattleya Kitchens got more of an idea of how to achieve their dream kitchen and to achieve something truly great. Cattleya Kitchens created two rendered kitchens to give the clients a taster of what can be achieved.

The key was to design a kitchen to maximum the space and to always creating an exciting design. A 2m sliding door unit was installed, another was an electric glass roller shutter. To add more cabinet and counter space. That offers specific cooking, cleaning and prep areas. Making it more efficient and functional. But always keeping in mind the functional of the kitchen, an easy access to the microwave and kettle for everyday uses.

Sliding door system inline XL, this is designed for maximum ergonomics. From start to finish, Ballerina kitchens are always choosing to design products that improves the users overall experience., not only this but the design feature was to save space when they are opened, it is important to see how we have developed our technologies and our thinking to create a more function and useable approach to design. Ballerina Kitchen was one of the first to offer this new and exciting design and to this day still one of the rarest companies that can provide and enhance the users overall experience. With this in mind, it was important to match the elegant sliding doors with door handles that provides the same quality. The N700 handle was chosen. The simplicity and ease of a non-protruding handle, this gives the room added value and a good flow of space, this is the saving slender approach to the kitchen.


Playful as well as functional drawers, the glass makes it easy to fit exactly what you are

looking for. The internal drawers are ‘Blum.’ Stainless steel and glass. Stainless steel is a low carbon steel, protection against stains and corrosion. It is easy to clean but gives a cutting edge sharp.
