About the owners: Time-strapped hospitality business owners, busy family life but with a passion for cooking and entertaining
Project: A new kitchen in a Victorian town house in Mumbles on the Gower coast
Kitchen Budget: £15k
Style: Vintage, relaxed, welcoming, eclectic
Colour scheme: Grey, black and blush pink with copper and rose gold finishing touches
De'Longhi range cooker: Vintage style, professional, 3 cavity, glossy black, dual fuel, 90cm wide
The starting point for our kitchen was to find an attractive cooker that could fit perfectly into a 90cm recess.
Budget was important too but when doing our research, we were disappointed with the build quality of the lower priced products and found that the higher spec ones were way out of our price range.
As to styling, some of the traditional ones we felt were too old fashioned looking and chunky and the more modern ones simply wouldn't have worked with our rather eclectic design scheme.
De'Longhi's vintage cooker certainly ticked all of the boxes on our wish list plus it's easy to keep clean.
