Take a tour of this characterful and entertaining kitchen

6 images

A painted island unit is the focal point of this traditional kitchen. It’s a social hub and provides extra worksurface and cupboard space because the fireplace takes up a large part of a wall of potential storage. Finished with blackboard paint, the fireplace has been upcycled into a functional feature with bookshelves in the hearth.
