This is the Cornell Classic from Second Nature, the epitome of classic; need one say more. The sink here is a butlers sink we probably all know that. The apron is the name for the front section that one can see; this is a fluted apron butlers sink of 800mm wide, offering two equal bowls in one piece. You will also note the edge profile of the granite; this is a waterfall front on a 40mm granite profile. The kitchen is further embellished by a number of the Cornell Classic range of accessories. The island offers pilasters, wine rails and tray units all arrayed in a classic elevation.
Malmo Contemporary – White Gloss (White High Gloss)
The Malmo range of doors from Burbidge is an extensive range of J groove handle less doors in six gloss colours, four matt colours and five veneered oaks. With this range one can mix and match to ones hearts content creating a dolly mixture of colours. Ok in this shot there is only one colour namely white. Totally white kitchens can become a tad clinical and cold if one is not careful or does not have the heating right up. The used of the grey quartz work top takes the edge of the clinical nature of this otherwise white kitchen. The painting of the cats face on the back wall introduces a flick of subdued red demonstrating just how effective ones own chattels have on any kitchen design.
The Langton Lead Painted Ash kitchen is behind the Putty work in the fore ground. The synergy of the two colours in this picture is very pleasing as I am sure you have noted. Over to the right of the range recess we have a clear demonstration that our suppliers Burbidge are open to building for their clients bespoke sized door frontals. The door there is certainly a bespoke size. It is not a Priest hole may I assure you; I have seen a few in the area and the Priests which used the Priest holes were larger than that. May it also be noted that this is not a bread oven door. I have seen a few of these too here in Devon and they all have cast iron doors. This is probably just a door added to the design to demonstrate the quality and flexibility of Burbidge as a supplier.
The Erin Natural Oak is a solid timber door selected with a sLight amount of pippy (knotting) to make the grain finish a tad more interesting than a clean oak such as the Lansdowne. One of the features of this door is the wide frame to the shaker design; this frame is chamfered to the centre panel as opposed to the frame being perpendicular to the centre panel as in most shaker doors. The Erin range offers many features. Here the radius doors are showcased along with the wide pan drawers in the foreground. To the rear of the kitchen we can see a double Belfast sink, probably the Franke VBK720, though there are a number of double Belfast sinks on the market these days. The tap is probably a Blanco Eye in chrome.
The Oak grain Mussel here forms a very feminine kitchen with soft tones in this quite new but nonetheless wonderful mussel colourway. The Palermo is quite a distinct door shape with a bold raised centre panel which is reflected in the edge profile. The whole effect of this design is very pleasing to the eye enforcing tranquillity on the user however tough the day in the office has been.
Are you looking for new kitchen doors, new worktops perhaps a new sink? Your kitchen can probably be offered a new lease of life for a very reasonable price. No hidden extras, No hard sell; just we are here and it can be done.

Martha Mockford – Affordable Design
A design has to be affordable; a design that is unaffordable is an aspiration. We all need our aspirations but they do not put food on the table.
I derive tremendous pleasure from what I do for a living. I solve problems; my solutions are kitchen designs. I own Martha Mockford; I run it from my workplace, not from the golf course. I offer solutions at under £10 thousand, I have done work in excess of £70 thousand; I do not mind. I enjoy designing, specifying, pricing and implementing kitchens; it is what I do when not in my garden.
Here at Martha Mockford, we stand by our work. The use of this phrase comes from my agricultural background. At an auction the farmer will physically stand by his cow or tractor that he is selling; purchasers understand from this that the farmer has total faith in the item he is selling now and in the future.
I have total faith in the goods services we offer at Martha Mockford. We stand by our work; we are usually recommended by our clients to new clients.
