The key requirement of the brief was to create a sociable family living space. This involved sacrificing the utility room and also removing the wall between the dining room and existing kitchen. The result is exactly what the clients had hoped for. They now have a room, featuring a classic mix of alabaster painted cabinetry and dark granite and rustic oak worktops, where everyone naturally gravitates towards and loves to spend time together.
It was important that the washing machine and tumble drier, which were previously out of sight in the utility room, were discreetly hidden away in the kitchen. This was achieved by creating the tall floor to ceiling larders to house the appliances. There’s some useful storage systems, including a practical Le Mans corner unit.
