Take a look around this all-white open-plan kitchen

Opening up a downstairs room and decorating in all-white has worked wonders for what was originally a dark and dingy kitchen with dark oak units and a single window.

‘Being Danish,’ says the owner of this 1990s property in Buckinghamshire, ‘I wanted a room with lots of light. We also needed a family friendly space where we could keep an eye on our three grandchildren when they are playing.’ The owners decided to extend at the side of the house and knocked down a wall between the kitchen and living room to create the lovely open-plan space. They also fitted two new windows and a door opening onto the garden.

The hob is positioned between two windows. The sink is opposite, behind a partition that separates the kitchen from a seating area. The ovens and a built-in fridge-freezer are in a bank of units on the back wall. The result of all their hard work is a bright and breezy modern kitchen with a hint of Scandi style.
