A sneak peek into a Sussex kitchen
Few things in life are more fascinating than getting a sneak peek into other people’s homes. There is something very intriguing about nosing around at their décor, furnishings, designs and ideas. Whether for inspiration for your next home venture or just to have a nose, we all undeniably love it.
PD Kitchens, the bespoke kitchen makers in Horsham, West Sussex are giving us an opportunity to take a peek into their Sussex based customer’s kitchens! So if you are considering a new kitchen or in need of some inspiration, these real life examples are sure to provide lots of food for thought…
This traditional country kitchen with a modern twist, located in Crowborough, East Sussex is absolutely stunning and a definite favourite of ours.
Originally a cattle shed, this listed building had plenty of natural beauty to start with and PD Kitchens were sure to enhance this space rather than impose on it. The room is surrounded by countryside views and the open plan kitchen was designed to complement the large airy space.
The design was sympathetic to the traditions of the building and gracefully incorporates the large oak beams and solid oak floor. With careful planning and consideration the room comfortably functions as a social area with the island in the middle subtly dividing the cooking area from the dining space. Once designed, this kitchen took just 2.5 weeks to install. You can find details of the full project and more pictures here.
This modern, high gloss kitchen located in East Sussex is just what you’d expect from a Brighton based kitchen. It is quirky, modern, fun and has a retro space-age feel to it.
The kitchen features handle-less Parapan doors, Silestone Iceberg composite worktops with upstand and a glass splash back as well as top of the range Miele ovens and an Elica IO Vertical decorative hood with external motor. We love the bright pops of colour, the bold orange seating, the bright red light and the yellow gloss walls; it really brightens the room up and gives that modern feel.

If you are not a fan of the colour red, look away now. The owners of this modern gloss kitchen in Southwater, West Sussex clearly adore it.
This project features brightly coloured cupboard fronts with neutral contrasting flooring, bringing the room to life. Karndean flooring was used to capture the feel of real timber, whilst maintaining all the practical advantages of vinyl flooring. This kitchen is undoubtedly eye catching and boasts plenty of modern appliances including a warming drawer, an efficient extractor, vertical radiator and feature downlights under the wall mounted cupboards and inside the glass fronted cupboards.
The kitchen was finished after a 2 week installation period. For more details and pictures of the project click here.
We love this show stopping contemporary kitchen based in Henfield, West Sussex.
Every little design feature and detail of this kitchen was meticulously considered to ensure a bonding relationship with the other traditional features in the rest of the house. This home is situated in the heart of the Sussex countryside and the owners wanted the layout of the kitchen to take advantage of the stunning views. Oak is a striking and widely used material throughout this kitchen. It provides warm tones and a pleasant contrast to the cream cabinets. Our eyes are magnetised towards the two hanging light shades above the island, designed by a local artist.
In total, the work itself took 5 weeks – 3 for prep work and 2 for installation for more information check out the project page.
We hope you enjoyed your ‘through the keyhole’ experience and can take away inspiration with lots to consider for your next big home project.
