One of the fab features of Alex's kitchen is the built-in kitchen cupboard – it's great for storing all her glasses and crockery. She made the curtain at the bottom with some floral fabric to link in with her country kitchen theme.

A handy loft conversion had already been completed before Alex moved in and provides a fab extra bedroom and bathroom for when visitors come to stay. It also has a desk area which is ideal for working from home.
