It’s been an exciting few months for the Krantz Designs team! Having barely come down from the high of achieving international recognition for ‘Best Kitchen Design Over £100,000’ at the Design Et Al 2023 Architecture & Design Awards, we’ve been shortlisted for ‘Kitchen Design of the Year’ at the 2023 KBBFocus Awards!

The Shortlisted Design

Our Kingsmead project clinched the award for Krantz Designs, and this design really does bring together all of the signature attributes of a Krantz kitchen.

The Kingsmead project is a chef’s kitchen, with full height storage and refrigeration positioned directly behind a stunning La Cornue cooker, which is embedded into the central island. Every cabinet or drawer you open holds a hidden surprise, with tailored storage and internal lighting accents throughout.

The layout of the kitchen is incredibly versatile. It lends itself to both cooking and socialising, and it evokes calmness and tranquillity while withstanding the hustle and bustle of family life. The curved banquette bench faces the sofa seating area and the large windows, drawing focus to the view out onto the orangery. Two different zones, joined together by their orientation.

“Symmetry was everything with this design. The chef’s pantry storage and refrigeration at the rear of the kitchen were the datum point to the whole design, which run symmetrically to the orangery extension.”

Maria Constantinou, Creative Director

The Award Ceremony

Being nominated for the KBBFocus ‘Kitchen Design of the Year’ Award represents a significant milestone for the team at Krantz Designs. We’re looking forward to joining other industry professionals in London for the award ceremony on 30th November!

“We are absolutely thrilled to have been nominated for the ‘Kitchen Design of the Year’ award. This recognition is truly a testament to the incredible creativity of the Krantz Designs team, and I’m so proud of our designers, manufacturers, and installers for the efforts they expended to bring our Kingsmead project to life.

This kitchen showcases our commitment to innovative design and enhanced functionality, and we look forward to continuing to push the boundaries of kitchen design in the future.”
