The owners removed the supporting wall that used to separate the kitchen from the hall to create this spacious kitchen-diner. Charcoal-painted units on the central island contrast with the cream units beyond and create an updated take on a classic country-style kitchen.
Distinctive lighting has been used to subtly differentiate the eating and cooking areas in this kitchen-diner, with a glass chandelier above the dining table and three pendants over the island. A framed vintage card print adds to the more relaxed feel of the dining area.
An extendable table ensures there’s plenty of room for everyone. Continuing the mix-and-match theme of the kitchen, the owner chose a combination of three different fabric-covered dining chairs. Vertical black radiators flank the doors to the garden.
Painting the stairs the same shade of grey as the island connects them to the space and turns them into an interesting feature. A shelf unit at the bottom of the stairs stores glasses, spare crockery and kitchen equipment.
A double butler’s sink lends country style to the room and means there’s plenty of room for washing up large pots and pans.

The old kitchen felt cluttered and looked dated. The owners have completely transformed it into a practical space where family and friends can congregate.
