Compact kitchens free up space in student studios

Elfin's bespoke all-in-one kitchen designs offer high-end finishes in small packages that are a perfect fit for the student accommodation market

An Elfin kitchen at the Station Studios student accommodation in London: a full range of functionality in a small footprint.

Elfin kitchens have been specified at Station Studios, developer Student Cribs' newly refurbished accommodation in North Kensington, London where 16 one-bedroom studio apartments offer students modern and stylish compact living with a reclaimed industrial theme.

The developers' kitchen unit specification was a non-standard length of 1800mm, so Elfin’s in-house design team matched the requirements and advised on what features would work best for students.

The brief also required full cooking facilities without compromising on space, so each compact steel kitchen included an A+ Liebherr fridge, ceramic hob, 30L combination microwave, integrated dishwasher, sink and tap, extractor fan and soft close doors and drawers.

The kitchens were supplied in powder coated Matt Black and Elfin also supplied matching steel wall cupboards with brushed stainless steel bar handles for extra dry storage. The cupboards were delivered pre-built to help speed up the installation process.

  • 'We’re regularly seeing this type of building refurbished into HMOs and the student market in particular is developing rapidly,' says Neill Andrew, director at Elfin Kitchens. 'Space is always at a premium, so our compact kitchens lend themselves brilliantly.'

Student Cribs has a portfolio of 227 properties with 1,117 tenants across 15 UK towns and cities. On all its previous projects it had used conventional kitchen units, but Station Studios had less floor space and required a kitchen that could offer a full range of functionality in a small footprint. Specifying Elfin kitchens meant the space could be maximised to include several appliances, including dishwashers. 

Elfin Kitchens' bespoke service for larger projects allows specifiers to achieve a high-end finish that co-ordinates with interior design schemes, while also providing durability. Starting at 900mm wide, compact kitchens from Elfin save space and offer flexibility with right or left-hand versions available. Hotplates, dishwashers, combi ovens and additional storage units are also available. Elfin kitchens are hard-wearing and built to last, with good access to parts and spares.
