Smart and practical, a tall unit houses the American-style fridge-freezer with a neat wine rack on the side. It also features a handy ice and water dispenser. The brown granite on the island is ideal for a prep area and complements the dining room table.

Rather than interrupt the lovely view of the garden with units, the owner opted for the one-and-a-half-bowl kitchen sink to be situated in the middle of a run of units with a microwave sited above out of children's reach. Fitted cupboards above the sink provide plenty of space for storing kitchen paraphernalia.

No space, however small, is wasted in this kitchen - even the chopping boards have a dedicated home. They slot easily into place between a cupboard and drawer unit within easy reach of the worktop.

The kitchen dining area is positioned to make the most of the garden view through impressive floor-to-ceiling bi-fold doors. A nature-inspired wallpaper continues the green theme, while a darkwood dining table introduces a contrasting touch.
