A Beautiful Yorkshire Home…


Earlier this year we had lots of fun working with Linda Barker to create her dream Yorkshire kitchen. She worked with one of our designers, Vic from our Ashton showroom, to utilise her favourite colours from her Wren collection.

Linda wanted to make the most of her space, while creating a social environment where she could entertain her friends and family, incorporating the panoramic views through her floor-to-ceiling windows of the beautiful Yorkshire countryside. She chose a complementary colour palette, combining Gullwing, Royal Purple and Damson to great effect…

Very soon we’ll be releasing a series of brand new videos that will take you on a full Wren journey; whether you’re starting to figure out what kitchen style you might like, or you’re just intrigued as to who Wren are, these videos will give you the inspiration you need. They follow the story of Linda’s Wren experience, from the first steps into design inspiration and layout planning, all the way through to the final reveal of her beautiful new kitchen – and everything in between! But first, here’s a little sneak peek at what you can expect…

Linda commented on how much she loves the practicality of her new kitchen. She’s now able to cook with her family without having to work with her back to the stunning Yorkshire views out of her windows. And she can easily share the cooking with her daughter too with the abundance of worktop prep space! Linda asked our friends at J Rotherhams to supply her solid granite and timber worktops, combining the two natural textures which are not only super stylish but durable too.

“All the internal fittings are beautifully lined in oak, which means I never worry about my cupboard doors being left open. The design maximises the space available and although no structural changes were made I feel as if I have a much bigger, more efficient kitchen with infinitely more storage space.”
