Elfin Kitchens specified for exclusive student accommodation

Elfin Kitchens has supplied over 355 ‘Premium Bespoke’ kitchens to Crown House, Sheffield – a purpose-built development of studio apartments for the private student accommodation sector.

The property boasts a number of first class facilities, which have all been designed to provide a standout university experience. This is reflected in the studio apartments which contain high quality, durable finishes, offering a blend of practicality and contemporary interior design. For these reasons, Elfin’s kitchens were specified for all studios, providing food preparation, storage and cooking facilities contained within compact units that complemented the modern décor.

The specification was further enhanced by including the popular Studioline system with each kitchen unit, linking the wall cupboards, splashbacks and side panels together to form one impressive product. The Studioline’s double-sided frame is manufactured from brushed stainless steel, which not only provides a sleek finish, but also provides high levels of durability.

An additional feature of the kitchens supplied to Crown House was the integration of a consumer unit in every model. This provides each apartment with complete electronic isolation for the kitchen, offering additional safety and a true ‘plug and play’ installation.
The main developers for the Crown House project were London and Scottish. Commenting on the specification of the Elfin Kitchens, Darren Simmons said: “On our Crown House Student Living development we worked closely with Elfin to develop a high quality product in a finish that complemented our interior design, whilst providing the durable solution that they are known for. We are really pleased with the end result and they look great in the apartments.”

Bob Andrew, Managing Director at Elfin Kitchens, said: “Crown House has been a great project for us and helped demonstrate the scale of products our range has to offer. It’s clear that the student accommodation market is developing rapidly, so we’re continuing to introduce new options that are adaptable to any size and style of apartment, while still providing all the essential cooking and storage facilities needed for independent living.”

The ‘Premium Bespoke’ range of kitchens incorporates high quality appliances, including a refrigerator, sink and tap, plus a choice of solo or combination microwave, oven and grill. In addition, ‘Premium bespoke’ models are supplied with soft close drawers and doors plus a choice of induction or ceramic hotplates with built in safety cut-out timers.

All ‘Premium’ models from our standard range are also available in a range of colours, from gloss powder coated White and Claret, to matt powder coated Sand and Bronze. Starting at 900mm wide, up to 1500mm, compact kitchens from Elfin save space and offer great flexibility, with right or left-hand versions available, as well as hotplates, dishwashers, combi-ovens and additional storage units.
