Planning your own kitchen makeover? Take a look at this extreme transformation that proves how clever design and a unique vision can help reinvent a space...
The owners of this small kitchen hadn't altered it since the 1960s. The design was crampt and dark and featured old fashioned timber units with formica worktops. With plans to extend the space, the owners wanted to create a family-friendly kitchen that would feel light and spacious.
The transformation took 8 weeks and involved lots of structural work. During the build, the owners knocked through an interior wall, demolished a sunroom and removed the rear wall of the ground floor. The end result is a fantastic open space with two sets of double doors (one located off the kitchen, the other next to the dining table)
The new kitchen features a large island which sits in the middle of the room. The hob and double oven are located within one walls of base and wall units, while an undermounted sink sits inside the island.
A mix of different materials and textures, such as porcelain, marble and wooden creates an elegant, yet classic look. The marble splashback and worktops add a real feeling of luxury, while the simple shaker cabinets have timeless appeal.
The space was specifically designed to make cooking easy, with a cleverly designed 'baking station' (a larder dedicated to keen bakers) and a large island unit, which provides plenty of storage and acts as a great workstation.
Mid-century style pendant lights add a funky, modern feel to the space. A mix of contemporary chairs and stools brings the look bang up to date.
