“I’m a property developer and I go to showrooms to speak to specialists because I want to choose kitchens that will work for everyone; not just what I personally like. Island are always incredibly helpful.”


Mr M is an expert in all things housing, a property developer, and with years of property development experience and a wealth of knowledge he knew the benefits of seeking a professional designer’s advice; so he gave us a visit. The kitchen in question was a luxury flat in Bournemouth, with a gorgeous sea view, and it needed a complete kitchen and bathroom makeover. It needed to be perfect – it also had to be done in 6 weeks.

“I wanted a kitchen that was almost a… beautiful blank canvas. A gorgeous interior but one that was perfect for a family to easily make their own and add their own touch too. Something simple, but exciting; minimalist, but not empty.”

Lee, the designer Mr M chose, went to work right away using clean, neutral tones for the units; simple, white flooring; and a seamless, contemporary look for the furniture. After realising Island Kitchens is the sister to Island Bathrooms, Mr M immediately decided he wanted to update the kitchen and both bathrooms together. Our talented designer Lee took the same approach with the bathroom for a consistent design throughout. Mirrors were added in the cloakroom bathroom to give the illusion of more space, and additional lighting could also be chosen to brighten up any dark corners — Illuminated mirrors, spotlights and under counter LED lighting could be added in the future.
