Before photos - This space is quite cramped and somewhat dark, the kitchen wall units which are fitted around the small window block the natural daylight. Black matt floor tiles are further absorbing light, adding to the dark feel. Storage and worktop space is extremely limited.
After photos - This was a complete renovation of a kitchen and dining room. A common problem for many families today is that the majority of our homes have a separate dining room which is very rarely used.
The family here longed for a more open plan style kitchen with plenty of space for family and friends, an extension was out of the question as it was outside of the budget. By removing the wall that divided the dining room from the kitchen, we were able to totally transform the area, making use of much needed space that was otherwise going to waste.
There is now plenty of storage and worktop space which means this kitchen is now a joy to cook and socialise in.
I've used wall cabinets which are ceiling height which again uses otherwise wasted space, having a small step stool tucked away means they are easily accessible. Keeping the window area free of wall cabinets which allows the natural light to flood in, creating an airy and bright feel to a room which used to be quite dark. The large mirror in the dining area reflects the light back into the space and makes a great feature too.
Living Room Design.
In this jewel toned Living room the walls were hand painted using an Ombre effect, using a darker Teal colour mixed with complimenting Taupe achieves this look. Offsetting this with bursts of Aubergine in the textiles and accessories gives a rich and luxurious feel.
The custom made built in unit was designed by myself, it makes clever use of the space, organising the books and music collection owned by this family, using painted MDF helps to keep costs down.
The design brief for this bedroom was to create a luxury hotel room feel. The headboard was custom made in rich velvet fabric to match the curtains, this is further defined with the wallpaper backdrop which compliments the calming and soothing grey hues, textiles and furniture, creating a relaxing and soothing space for rest and a good nights sleep.
