Creating a Modern Farmhouse Utility Room & Kitchen for White Barn Home Interiors

When we move into a new house, more often than not, the first thing we want to do is renovate the kitchen. This is exactly what the owners of White Barn Home Interiors in Thormanby, Yorkshire wanted to do. They discovered that the kitchen worktop wasn’t fitted very well & had lots of faults in the shape of bad joints, chips on the edges & general usage dents. After just a few months of living there, the worktop had deteriorated further; was thin with sharp edges, discoloured & very hard to keep clean. They also noticed unsightly water marks in the sink area. Something had to be done. 

White Barn Home Interiors are a small, family-run business based in North Yorkshire with over 165k followers on Instagram. Their brand is all about the modern farm house style and they needed a kitchen & utility room that continued their serene modern-rustic home. With over 30 styles and 90 colours of replacement doors plus our range of overlay worktops, Granite & TREND Transformations is perfectly suited to create the kitchen of your dreams, no matter the style.

Contacting Us

Getting in Touch

After following us on Instagram for a couple of years, having seen our display at a local garden centre, the couple were finally in a position to give us a call. They liked our ‘over the top’ kitchen counter concept & wanted to chat more about how it works. One of the things that really appealed to them was the ease of installation, short turnaround & next to no mess. The clients preferred not to create unnecessary waste by removing the old worktop and possibly damaging the existing units. This made our kitchen counters their first choice. 


Designing the Space

We were asked to provide worktops & full height splashbacks in both the kitchen and utility room. New sinks were also to be installed with a fresh set of taps in both, to complete the renovation.

We sent various samples initially so the clients could view them in situ. While the samples were useful, it was only after a visit to the showroom that cemented the decisions. The warm white was always a front runner for the utility area so that didn’t change. It was harder to decide on the worktop for the kitchen though & two different styles were discarded before the client confirmed that the lovely Arabescato marble effect style was the one they wanted. Being able to view them in full sized slabs in our workshop really helped.  


The Customer’s Thoughts

Our range of services means that we can organise everything for the client to ensure the job gets done quickly & efficiently. Our templating day also means that we can answer any questions about how the worktop fits in awkward spaces & any further details the client wants to know about. 

Overall it was simpler than I thought it would be. I am amazed that it actually was completed in a day!

It was so convenient that GTT organised the fitting, electrician and plumber for me.
