When we met, the customers had a separate kitchen and dining room. The dining room was rarely used and was quite a dark space. We suggested that we look at taking the wall out between the two rooms and blocking up a doorway. This would enable us to create a free flowing, open space, and a much lighter living area.
It was important that the kitchen had plenty of work surface but also room for a large fridge and freezer. We designed the tall appliances in a bank next to an existing nib to give them the feeling of being built into the wall slightly. This meant that we could have all base cabinets on the opposite side, without wall cabinets, to keep the room feeling spacious. This allowed us to maximise the space available whilst keeping an airy, uncluttered feel to the room.
