The owners opted for neutral units and worktops to keep the kitchen as light as possible.

The granite worktop is from Surrey Furniture (opens in new tab). The farmhouse sink is from Villeroy & Boch (opens in new tab).

The owners chose the floral blinds and the green slate flooring to echo the teal tiles in the chimmey breast.

For similar blind fabric try Notting Hill in Duck Egg Blue from Fabricaz (opens in new tab).

The curved units not only add extra storage space, but also prove practical as the sharp corners are no danger to young children.

The fridge-feezer is housed in the dining area along with extra built-in storage.

Buy a Samsung fridge-freezer like this at Boots (opens in new tab).

Despite the lack of wall units there is plenty of cleverly designed storage space, including slim pull-out drawers next to the hob.

A false chimney was built to make a feature of the cooker, then the owners used a bold teal for the tiles behind. The work, which included the extension, took six months and cost around £30,000.

The Neptune Chichester units are from Surrey Furniture (opens in new tab).
