Be inspired by this freestanding country kitchen

A freestanding kitchen had long been the dream for the owner of this 1950s detached villa in Belfast. ‘As the boys were getting older I was keen to have a large family space where we could all spend quality time together.’ With their existing home lacking the room for their family, the owners started looking for a new, bigger house to be their forever home – one with the potential to extend. They spotted a place that had everything they were looking for – including a large south-facing garden with room to extend.

The kitchen had, in fact, already been extended, but it was still not big enough. So five weeks after the owners moved in they began work, moving the rear wall back three metres and removing an internal wall. ‘When the foundations went in, I was worried it wasn’t big enough, but as soon as the walls went up I realised it was much larger than expected!’
