The kitchen incorporates the dining area, perfect for relaxed entertaining. The classic white brick-shaped tiles have been teamed with dark grout making them easy to keep clean. A practical rubber floor completes the scheme.

In the living room, furnshings are kept minimal, with interest added in bold splashes of colour and accessories. A row of small paintings hung above the sofa creates a unique take on the feature wall.

The master bedroom features plenty of built-in storage. Rather than handles, the doors have push-click catches to help streamline the bank of doors.

4/5 Kids’ bedroom

To maximise space in the children's bedroom, a bunk bed was adapted to fit a cot underneath. Two rugs protect the neighbours below from the children's noise.

5/5 Bathroom

The bathroom has a sophisticated wetroom feel, created by extending the tiles from floor to ceiling and choosing an angular basin and towel ladder. Flashes of orange add vibrancy.
