To create this sunny kitchen the owners converted a garage that stood to one side of their home. The garage is now unrecognisable with one wall replaced with bi-folding doors, skylights in the pitched roof and a window at the far end, all letting light flood in. On summer days the doors are pushed back to allow the sunshine indoors. As the kitchen is so bright, the owners were able to go for matt black units with a black tiled floor. White composite worktops and accents of turquoise from the Seventies-style pendants and bar stools prevent the black units from overwhelming the space.
There wasnt enough depth to have standard-sized units along the wall to the right of the freestanding fridge-freezer, so slimline cupboards that store recipe books have been fitted, instead. The wall above has been turned into an organising area with a calendar, key store and pin board.
