Larders are high on kitchen wish lists and have become one of today’s most sought-after pieces of furniture.
In this barn conversion kitchen in rural Headcorn, the priorities were good storage and ample work space.
For open plan kitchens where dining and socialising happens in the same room as cooking, a generous larder is a real asset. It allows you to shut the door and hide all your bottles, jars, packets and tins out of sight and off the worktops. Larders are particularly great for people who cook a lot and have many ingredients they need to access all the time. Everything can be stored in perfect order.
Our client wanted clutter free work surfaces, opting for a double larder so they could also cleanly house small electrical items – microwave, toaster, coffee machine, food mixer etc. With a granite cold shelf and power in the back panel, the larder also becomes a functional work station.
