The Swan project is a youth opportunities project, that is based in Norfolk. The Swan Centre is their base, and is located in the town of Downham Market. Meticulously working to provide new exciting opportunities for the youth of Norfolk, The Swan project are always looking to try and improve the quality of the lives of young people in the area.
The Swan centre is a space that aims to offer open access, positive activities and support to young people within West Norfolk from the age of 8 to 24, in an area that falls within the top 30% of most deprived neighbourhoods in the country. They aim to offer a space that all users can feel proud of and also take ownership of and were looking to make some improvements to their space for the 11+ age group.
The kitchen is arguably the most important room in the house. It’s often the room that involves the most effort to get right and therefore rightfully becomes the hub of the house. A room that you’ve often dreamed of having a specific way for years, and when you’ve finally got the design you have always coveted, it’s a room that you want to show off to everyone. And whilst a Naked Kitchen is so beautiful, our kitchen designs are that and so much more. They’re designed for living.
Our latest creation here at the Naked Kitchen showroom has caused quite a stir on social media so far. Expanding our showroom is something we had been planning for quite some time now, so we finally turned our creative ideas into reality, and The Hampton Court Kitchen was created!
An incredible mixture of traditional and modern, this kitchen is so different to anything else we’ve ever created. A beautiful large island houses an innovative BORA downdraft extractor and hob, making cooking an incredibly easy task in this kitchen.
No bulky appliances or extractors mean that the kitchen maintains its soft clean lines which are highlighted even further by the use of the beautiful dusky heartwood colour. The matte black Lapitec worktops are resistant to UV light, acids, alkali, abrasion and everyday wear and tear. The matte black colouring provides an incredible depth and intensity to the room, contrasting beautifully with the bright copper elements in the room.
The copper pendant lights add a beautiful atmospheric light above the island. With no harsh spotlights interrupting the bursts of natural light from the large windows opposite, this kitchen feels beautifully relaxed, open and fresh.
Why not come and check out the kitchen for yourself? Our showroom is based in Norfolk and we’d love for you to come and visit to see our kitchens in the flesh, as well as discover how our kitchens are made in our workshop!
We were lucky enough to be invited back into one of our clients home’s recently to photograph their beautiful Naked Kitchen. An absolutely stunning home and an incredible kitchen to go alongside it!
Here at Naked Kitchens, we love to design different styles of kitchens for our clients. We love all styles of kitchen, from compact to open plan large rooms, contemporary to very traditional and everything in between! Recently, we photographed an incredible kitchen which had a very grand feeling to it, and we wanted to celebrate this by giving a few design tips on how to recreate your own grand kitchen.
If you’re a regular reader of this blog, you may know that at the beginning of the year, we provided our showroom to local interiors business Birdie Fortescue as a venue for their spring summer collection photoshoot.
Recently we got in contact again with Birdie, as we knew they needed a location to shoot their autumn/winter campaign, and we’ve just installed some absolutely fabulous new kitchens into our showroom that we thought would be the perfect backdrop!
With our incredible bespoke copper splashback as the backdrop for pink and teal pierced votives, these items are able to take centre stage whilst complimenting the matching colours that have been produced from the hand ageing process.
Our beautiful island with bespoke end grain worktop was the perfect surface for Birdies new collection of linens. Beautiful purple colours combine incredibly with the pink colour of the island. A unique island that has innovative built-in technology, as well as bespoke storage. The copper handles on the island provide an eye catching statement that complements the linens beautifully.
The exclusive artwork that you can find at Birdie’s shops look so incredible against our oak wall, amongst the other beautiful pieces from their latest collection. The matte black Lapitec worktop provides a beautiful contrast against the light, pastel collection making everything stand out even more.
We would love for you to check out Birdie’s products, as we know how beautiful they look in our showroom kitchens, and we know they would look even more beautiful in your own homes!

We’ve been lucky enough to visit some of our customers beautiful homes recently to take photos of their incredible kitchens. Most recently, we visited a stunning property here in Norfolk to take photos of the absolutely stunning kitchen that we designed for them!
When we got to the property, we immediately knew this was going to be stunning shoot. A fabulous building with heaps of character, large rooms and beautiful architecture- the perfect scenery for our shoot!
Pink is a phenomenon that we just can’t seem to get over in the interiors world! Throughout the years, we’ve gone from baby pinks to bright millennial pinks and just about everything in between, but it seems that 2018 is the year for blush, dusky pink. A beautiful dusky colour, with just the right amount of grey to create a soft, unfocused colour that immediately relaxes the mind.
It might seem like a colour that should be used in the bedroom or living room, rooms that are reserved for relaxing only. However, the kitchen is fast becoming this type of room, and is no longer just a small room for cooking in, meaning blush pink is perfect. A colour that works beautifully on its own, and also looks incredible with a combination of so many different colours. Adding black into the mix gives the pink an edge, whilst mixing pink within a white kitchen keeps the room beautifully fresh and adds a unique element. You don’t need to introduce a large amount of this colour, simply a small injection of pink will provide the lift that your room needs.
At Naked Kitchens we love to experiment with different colours and tones whenever we’re creating new kitchens. Bright, bold’s, pastels and incredible neutrals- we can create a kitchen to suit whatever your style.
There is no doubt that the 2LG’s are some of the coolest interior designers around at the moment. Appearing on numerous TV ad’s, designing the Garden Pod at the Ideal Home Show, and even currently designing their own wallpaper range with Graham and Brown!
