PROJECTS | January - April update

The first quarter of 2018 has been incredibly busy for Helium HQ. The fit diaries are booking up through the summer & we are working on some gorgeously unique & exciting projects. Keep on reading to get a sneak peak into some of the projects we are working on at the minute.



This beautiful dark blue shaker has been designed for our client in Chorlton. Their brief for the whole space was a Scandinavian vibe mixed with geometric shapes, a dark blue kitchen with marble veined worktops, hints of yellow & a personalised art shelf. So we came up with this eclectic design that brings all of their ideas together. The builders are underway extending the property & we cannot wait to get this one installed in June.

Our client in Ashton requested a minimal, white, contemporary kitchen. She wanted to brighten up her space & modernise it with a German style handle less design. Helium delivered this beautiful kitchen which opens up the room, gives her tonnes of worktop & storage space; & also has a nice toasty home for her German Shepherd Charlie. He will be all snug in his new bed once the fit has completed in June.

Our Client in Droylsden was fed up with her dark dated kitchen. She has a large space that she wanted to fill with a modern bright Kitchen & dining area. Using the Welford handle less kitchen, we have designed for her this elegant living space. One of our favourite features is the step that makes a subtle feature out of her new Bosch ovens, fridge & freezer.

One of my favourite projects I think I've ever been asked to work on. The brief was "A Mad Men style kitchen, luxurious textures & hints of retro styling." My inspiration went crazy!

Our client was originally inspired by one of our COSDON pictures from the main website so we ran with this idea & personalised the design to suit her space, her requirements & her budget. The outcome is this stunningly unique space that is like no other. This one is due to be installed end of 2018/beginning of 2019 so make sure you check back in with us for updates!

The Helium range is so incredibly adaptable, & we give just as much thought & attention to the smaller kitchens than we do to the larger ones. This small & simple kitchen may not look like much but it has been specially designed to cater for one of my current clients elderly parents. Due to her condition with arthritis, she struggles in her existing kitchen to bend down & reach to the back of her cabinets & sometimes struggles with swollen hands from her condition.

Her brief was a simple kitchen, that is bright & fresh but something that is easy for her & her husband to use.

Although this kitchen is small, it's completely accessible. All the base units consist of pull out drawers or pull out internal shelves & of course pull out corner units to help our client reach anything that she needs. We also took care & attention to choose an extra deep handle so that she can easily open cupboards; & to her request we have even designed a small medicine cabinet with a lock to keep medications in a safe place & out of reach from her little grand children, who often visit.

This stunning open space for our client in Adlington is a project we are working on with Magda from Pride Road Architects.

Our client in Adlington has the most beautiful property, hidden away & backing straight into English woodlands; it has been our pleasure to be involved with designing this kitchen. She is opening up a lot of the ground floor to allow her to take advantage of larger windows & doors & an open plan kitchen & living space. When complete the whole space will feel incredibly open & natural. Our clients brief was to stick with this natural theme but to incorporate some striking contemporary features including a dark blue kitchen to offer a juxtaposition to the greens & earthy tones that surround the space.
