The Aga cooker, set in an elaborately framed niche, heaps on the old-school kitchen charm.
I wish they would use cream-color paint for the walls in this Scottish kitchen so they matched the big Aga cooker. Bright blue walls give the kitchen a lively punch but they don’t do much for the range! The cream-colored Aga cooker is built into an imposing niche lined with yellow-gold mosaic tile. This is the type of Aga that’s always on so the lighted niche conceals a vent. The range stores heat as well as gives it off so it does double duty. Aga ranges were originally coal burning and first came to Great Britain in 1929 and have long been kitchen fixtures there. No cooker is more old-school. Counters throughout the kitchen are polished black granite, even on the island which has a prep sink and also provides seating on one side.
Upper cabinets in the kitchen are unique. While glass door uppers are used adjacent to the sink to create a kind of hutch look, elsewhere upper cabinets have doors with a pierced medallion detail. This provides air circulation plus it’s a great detail. A tongue-and-groove backsplash is painted white to match the cabinets. Kitchen doors have divided glass on top, to match doors on some upper cabinets. The main sink — a double-bowl farmer — sits in front of a window with a wood-tone drip rail beneath it (a bespoke kitchen detail). Dark cabinet hardware echoes the color of the counters.
The Blue Rooster Kitchen also has cabinets with pierced doors.
