The Day True Award Winning Kitchen that’s not very ‘Kitcheny’

Posted on: March 31st, 2017 by admin_daytrue

Day True have won an award! KBB have made us the Kitchen Designer of the Year for this project in Marylebone, London.

We are of course completely delighted, but it’s indicative of a change in attitudes, living styles and the premiumisation of space in London, that we’ve won an award for a kitchen that is less of a kitchen and more of an extended living space. Of course it still has the elements you would expect, it’s just that they’re hidden behind a layer of highly practical luxury and the unique Day True timeless mix of design styles.

The appliances are largely invisible, leaving the eye to be drawn to the unique and beautiful features we really wanted to show off, like our brass extractor, taps and lights. To maximise the space available, we kept all the visible units at worktop height and arranged all the tall, storage units on a return wall, so the kitchen can be kept clean and tidy at all times. The marble wall provides a luxurious backdrop without taking centre stage and a corner unit hides the kettle, toaster and other worktop appliances.

By knocking through three rooms and using a continuous herringbone floor throughout, we created a practical, bright integrated living space in this unique first floor Georgian townhouse. We like it very much. But as everyone working in the creative industry knows, it takes a good, trusting, client for a project to be a truly successful. So what we are really saying is, thank you to our many, varied clients – this is their award too…

We’re Going Through Changes

We absolutely love a new season here at Day True. The change in weather always fires up our creative juices and means we can start really focusing on the outdoors – gardens, patios, outdoor furniture, brighter colours and products.

The biggest change Spring brings this year is the refurbishment to our Maida Vale studio. The original Day True has been open since 2014 and it was about time we showed it some love and gave it a refresh in-line with the exciting path the business is taking as we enter the second quarter of 2017. The new showroom will showcase new products and new technology, the latest trends across the board, and more lifestyle settings. Since we are taking on more whole-house projects we will also have several complete room settings, showing potential customers how our specialist finishes and bespoke furniture work within Day True-designed spaces.

Owing to the expansion of not only our team but also our client base, Maida Vale will host its very own brand spanking new Annex, similarly to the showroom in Chelsea, with its own sample library and presentation space. Both Annex’s are available for friends of Day True to use, totally free, for meetings or inspiration sessions.

Finally and most excitingly (we think anyway!) Maida Vale will get its very own outdoor space, the first Day True garden, for clients and staff to enjoy in clement, or indeed inclement weather.

We’re hoping the showroom will be ready to unveil, of course with one of our signature Day True parties, in a few weeks time. On behalf of all of us, thank you very much for your patience and we can’t wait to unveil the finished masterpiece!
