Family Garden Room & Kitchen
(as featured in House Beautiful, Real Homes and Hertfordshire Life magazines)
The original kitchen was small and dark so the homeowners asked me to create a fresh design that opened up the space to incorporate a fun family room.
I redesigned the kitchen with all of the modern appliances needed for a youthful family. In particular, an oversized Italian granite worktop dominates the kitchen and is a wonderful spot for entertaining with champagne and canapés or pop and pizza. A traditional larder cupboard and double oven range cooker complete the design for the passionate bakers. Of course the kitchen wouldn't be complete without a modern egg stand for all of the golden eggs from the family's Araucana chickens.
The kitchen now opens up to a spacious and light garden room for all the family to enjoy. Modern technology is balanced with garden views to either side of the room. Shelves are simply styled with personal statues that are sentimental to the family. A chrome and crystal chandelier dominates the vaulted ceiling. At night time it's like sitting under a tree with sparkling stars.
A grey tiled floor runs between the two spaces to unify the kitchen and garden room. With under floor heating, this is warm and cosy all year around.
What the homeowner had to say:
" The transformation of our room has been phenomenal. The kitchen has changed beyond recognition. The garden room is light, spacious and relaxing. It's central to our entertaining and family life."
