Be inspired by this compact family home at Christmas

Having lived in a small flat, this compact terraced house on a nearby London street held great appeal for this young family. ‘It’s like a doll’s house,’ says the owner. ‘It’s symmetrical but only one room deep. But for now the house is the perfect size for us.’ When they moved in, the owners were relieved that no structural work was needed, however, there was plenty to be done on the electrics and plumbing.

They also decided to make some changes to the layout and moved the kitchen from its original position in a former coal hole under the pavement and repositioned it in the old dining room to create a more family-friendly design.
