Two compact, top of the range, robust steel Premium 1500 kitchens from Elfin Kitchens have been installed in two luxury cabins in Uig, located on the Scottish Isle of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides. Owned by Carnish Cabins, the boutique, self-catering holiday cabins are built into a hillside and overlook the expanse of Uig Sands. Both properties – named “Ebb” and “Flow” respectively – have been designed with floor-to-ceiling windows to maximise the light and the spectacular view, with a contemporary interior and colour palette inspired by the surrounding landscape.

The proprietors of Carnish Cabins are Richard and Jo-Ann Leparoux. The couple purchased the two Premium 1500 units in matt powder-coated Sand colour from Elfin Kitchens, after which they were then installed in the cabins by local tradesman Malcolm Macleod in February 2019.

Commenting on the decision to install Elfin Kitchens, Jo-Ann Leparoux said: “Our bespoke cabins are modern, spacious and have been constructed to a very high standard. We chose Elfin’s kitchens as they fitted perfectly with the overall look, size, colour and quality finish; they were just what we were looking for. We looked at other companies offering compact kitchens, but settled on Elfin as it ticked all our boxes. What particularly impressed us was the range of colours available, with the matt Sand complementing our beachside location.”

In addition to the Elfin Kitchens, the two luxury cabins are each fully equipped with a range of modern facilities, including double bed, flat screen television, chaise sofa and outdoor seating area, allowing guests to take in the fresh sea air and enjoy the scenery.

Jo-Ann continued: “As a company, Elfin Kitchens was super to deal with – everybody there was so helpful. It’s certainly a long way for the kitchens to have travelled, but that didn’t prevent the team at Elfin from assisting us when required. The kitchens look fabulous in-situ and we couldn’t be happier with them!”
