Be inspired by this country kitchen diner with red island unit

The owners of this barn conversion decided it was time to remodel and refurbish their home to give it a more modern layout. ‘The old kitchen was on the north-facing side of the house and felt dingy with dark oak which was oppressive. We also lacked worktop and storage space,’ explains the owner.  

The solution was to add a small glazed oak-framed, garden room extension to the existing living -room and to then relocate the kitchen to a new space on the south side of the house. ‘The aim was to create the large, bright kitchen with living and dining areas that we have always wanted.’
