"The Wylie Kitchen Jesmond"

"What was the Brief??"

‘I’ve always believed that no matter what size your house is, you always end up living in the kitchen,’ says Andrea Wylie.
Andrea moved from Hexham into a detached 1920s property in Jesmond with her husband Graham and their three year-old twin daughters".
We’ve always used the kitchen as a place to congregate, socialise, work and relax, and that’s why I wanted to transform the kitchen into a place that catered for all of these needs.’

Why did you choose Court Homemakers?

An avid magazine reader always on the lookout for new inspiration and ideas. Andrea carried out lots of research before she approached a kitchen supplier. ‘We knew we definitely wanted an island in the middle of the kitchen, and I was really drawn to the idea of a semicircular island, which I’d become aware of after noticing Court Homemakers’ adverts.
I then decided to visit their showrooms and was hugely impressed with all the products, and their designers. Everyone was very helpful, especially Paul who later became our point of contact.’The next step for the Wylies was having their design finalised. After handing over their initial thoughts and ideas to Court Homemakers, they then received a design plan, which was what Andrea describes as ‘95% perfect’.
The design was almost exactly what she had visualised, after a few tweaks it was perfect...

What are your stand-out/favourite features?

The kitchen design Andrea chose is called Metris, and consists of three main colours: Gloss Black, Dark Zebrano, and White Gloss. For the worktops she chose a mixture of Zeus, a man-made material, and Nero Assoluto granite.
The majority of appliances are Siemens, and have all proved to be popular with Andrea and Graham. ‘We’ve never had an induction hob before, but I couldn’t imagine not having one now; it’s a dream.
I also have a Teppanyaki grill, which is great for cooking steaks on. It cooks everything so quickly and it’s easy to clean. My favourite part of the kitchen is the LED lighting in every cabinet, which switches on when the door opens.’

Andrea adds, ‘I’m really pleased with everything, and wouldn’t change a thing. Paul and the team were approachable, friendly and really easy to get on with.
They worked alongside the electricians and builders seamlessly as one big team and I’d certainly recommend them.
Graham and I know what works for us, Court Homemakers were able to translate that into our dream kitchen’.
