Open house: A modern open-plan kitchen in north London

Need kitchen inspiration? Take a look around this stripped-back open-plan kitchen extension in a five-bedroom Victorian house in North London. This stunning space is packed with great design ideas and clever storage solutions.

This impressive kitchen extension’s large amount of floor space and abundant natural light is down to minimal cabinetry, a glazed ceiling and huge floor to ceiling glass doors.

With plenty of space for prepping, cooking, dining and entertaining, this scheme combines functionality and striking design to great effect and is ideal for modern family life.

High-performance, stainless steel appliances contrast with the all white scheme, breaking up the run of white handleless units.

An outdoor barbecue and wood-fired oven allow for sociable cooking and dining alfresco, while the concrete floor flowing inside out seamlessly links the kitchen and outdoor space together.

The large island features a built-in hob, plenty of hidden storage and a lengthy breakfast bar ideal for informal meals and placing guests within easy chatting distance.

The polished concrete floor runs from the inside out for a seamless look and its surface sheen has been removed so that its texture contrasts with the white, shiny units.

A fun, quirky addition to a family kitchen – the swing adds a playful touch and thanks to plenty of surrounding space, it can be used to its full potential.

Orange and blue dining furniture offers a dramatic contrast with the pale wood and white units, while a trio of delicate pendants creates a welcomed, softer feel.
