            A Grey Kitchen Makeover With Beth

            Multi-award winning blogger, Beth Sandland, wanted a grey kitchen makeover that reflected her personality, while offering better functionality for work and play. Explore how Howdens helped Beth and her trade professional to create a stylish and practical design that made the most of her compact space.

            About Beth

            Blogger, photographer, and world-traveller, Beth has found home in a leafy part of South London, where she lives with her fiancé. A lover of open-plan living, the couple are currently renovating their 1960’s flat, so it supports their work-at-home jobs and suits their family life.

            “The corner accessories are brilliant, as they offer lots of storage without making everything look cramped. They also pull right out of the cupboard, which makes reaching items at the back super simple.”

            Marble counters

            Wanting to keep to a pared-back palette, Beth invested in a white quartz counter with a subtle marble pattern. Offering both longevity and luxe appeal, Beth also used this surface to create a striking waterfall design for added wow factor.

            Brass knobs

            To add warmth to her cool-toned cabinetry, Beth opted for brushed-brass handgrips, which have a gold-like colour for a high-end feel. They also have a simple, curved design, which keeps her scheme looking refined and sophisticated.

            Ceramic sink-bowl

            Having a large Belfast bowl, which she could fill with flowers, was something Beth always wanted. Her ceramic basin has a white tone that blends in with her counters for a continuous look. It also offers a hygienic surface that makes cleaning easy.

            Brass tap

            To create a statement washing area, Beth decided to go for a brass faucet. The rich tone pops against the pale cupboard doors and works well with other luxe features in the space. It also co-ordinates with the handgrips to create a premium, co-ordinated effect.

            “The local service that Howdens offered was one of the best parts about working with them. It was personal and if there was anything I needed changing or picking up, they were just a few minutes away.”
