Open house: An open-plan taupe-coloured kitchen in a former chapel in Kent

Need kitchen inspiration? Take a wander through this open-plan taupe-coloured kitchen in a former chapel in Kent.

Careful planning and an eye for design were used to create this kitchen in a gothic-style, former lodge house in Beckenham, Kent.

Bespoke, Shaker style, handleless units in Maple and lacquered Birch transformed this lackluster space into a family-friendly kitchen.

Bold furniture and accessories, including industrial-style black metal chairs and matching powder coated pendant light, add interest and contrast to the relaxed dining area.

Prepping and cooking is confined to a single, neat area. There are two built-in, single ovens in polished stainless steel and a five-burner gas hob.

The two under mounted, ceramic, single bowl sinks compliment the sleek Bianco Carrara marble worktops.

Every inch of storage space has been used – an internal rack system makes the most of an awkward, hard to reach corner.

Lacquered Birch interiors add warmth and an element of luxury inside the pantry, which also houses the microwave. There’s plenty of room to store everyday items in the deep, solid wood drawers. The owners opted for rustic oak flooring throughout, which adds warmth underfoot and colour to the scheme and also means dropped items are less likely to break.
