The owners recycled the original floorboards and reinstated tongue-and-groove woodwork. They also installed a second-hand Britannia range cooker in what was a blocked-up fireplace.

Knocking the wall down between the kitchen and dining room and extending into the side return has transformed the kitchen-diner into a large, light-filled space.

Built-in drawers under the stairs create storage for hiding away the children's toys. A cushion on top provides extra seating, too.

Painted tongue-and-groove panelling fits in with the period feel of the house.

The owners couldn't find a large sofa that they liked, so they made the wooden base from salvaged fruit crates, then added their own cushions.

A restful shade of off-white on the walls creates a calm and tranquil feel.

Much of the furniture has been handmade from reclaimed materials.

The mirror frame was made from a door frame found in a salvage yard. The owners painted it in a watered-down emulsion to create a weathered look.

A vintage suitcase, antlers and an empty frame on the mantel bring personality to the main bedroom, while a patchwork throw adds a bold splash of colour.
