Countess Interiors Create an Appetising Commercial Kitchen with DuPont™ Corian®

Countess Interiors Create an Appetising Commercial Kitchen with DuPont™ Corian®

When business premises owner Roy Fitzgerald decided his Italian restaurant needed a facelift he decided to return to Countess Interiors for an eighth time. After completing two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a kitchen, a utility room and fitted furniture to his living area in his flat above Isolabella's in Leyland it was now time to tackle the restaurant kitchen and bar.

With many successful years of running the popular Italian, chef Ginni Maullu had set ideas on how he wanted the busy kitchen to function - with lots of open space, plenty of work surface for pizza preparation and to be able to keep his trained eye over the bar area.

So plans were made, the design came to shape and the concept was ready.

The bespoke DuPont™ Corian® kitchen furniture left their factory ready to be installed so as to minimise the time the Restaurant had to be closed.

Walls were taken down and rebuilt then clad with either stainless steel or special commercial kitchen panelling.The floors were levelled and replaced and a new suspended ceiling with lighting installed.

Working with local steel fabricator, R Briggs Ltd a fantastic new extraction and fresh air input system was designed and fitted.

Hosting a whole range of new commercial appliances the kitchen came together and integrated well into the airy new bar area.

Grape Green and Glacier White Corian® formed the expansive working surfaces and their fantastic combitherm press came into its own producing the sweeping curves of the cabinets thermoformed in Corian®.

Finally the finishing touches - a bespoke Corian® wine glass and bottle holder and colour changing LED lighting completed the fresh new look.

A busy opening night, the refurbishment complete, Ginni and his staff were greeted by many of their complimentary locals eager to get back to the popular Italian & Sardinian cuisine that Isolabella's is renowned for.

A new venture successfully completed!
