This fitted hand-painted breakfast cupboard in the Edwardian style is ideal for storing larger breakfast appliances and has bi-fold doors on gold hinges that completely fold back enabling easy access. Magnetic catches at the top stop the doors from swinging open once closed. The workspace is enhanced by a walnut interior cleverly housing an integrated Miele coffee machine and a fitted Neff microwave. The gold handles match the hinges and enhance the white painted furniture and the Silestone Eternal Calcutta Gold quartz worktop, which is integral to this beautiful bespoke fitted kitchen by John Ladbury Kitchens.
No matter what size of kitchen Planet Furniture work on, storage is one of the most important aspects they discuss with clients, if not the most important.

This example shows that instead of a separate utility room this floor-to-ceiling bespoke Shaker cabinetry was the perfect solution for hiding away the washing machine, dryer and all sorts of other kitchen essentials.
This stunning concrete, beech and black kitchen proves that storage can be fun as well as practical. Making a focal point of open shelves creates an open plan feeling with really easy access to everyday items. The bank of mid height units house the ovens and steam appliances in a neat row with cupboards beneath for pots, pans and oven accessories. This stunning kitchen from German Pronorm is one of a huge range of kitchens available from Moneyhill Interiors in Rickmansworth.
This modern take on a dresser unit from Dobsons offers a versatile storage solution that is also perfect for hiding all your kitchen gadgets out of sight. The bi-fold doors allow you to completely open up the space to slide out your kitchen contraptions. Power sockets can be installed in the back of the dresser if required for a coffee machine or mixer, and then once you are finished using your appliance it can be pushed back and the doors closed keeping your work surfaces clutter free.
