Barn Conversion, Worcestershire
KITCHEN. Our clients had lived in this barn conversion for a number of years but had not got around to updating it. The layout was slightly awkward and the entrance to the property was not obvious. There were dark terracotta floor tiles and a large amount of pine throughout, which made the property very orange!
On the ground floor we remodelled the layout to create a clear entrance, large open plan kitchen-dining room, a utility room, boot room and small bathroom.
We then replaced the floor, decorated throughout and introduced a new colour palette and lighting scheme.
In the master bedroom on the first floor, walls and a mezzanine ceiling were removed to enable the ceiling height to be enjoyed. New bespoke cabinetry was installed and again a new lighting scheme and colour palette introduced.
What Houzz contributors are saying:
Mix design stylesThe beauty of a two-tone kitchen is that you can combine two styles in one space. Take the cabinets in this barn conversion, for instance. The cream units around the edge of the kitchen are quite traditional, which ties in well with the rustic feel of the space. But by adding another colour to the island, the designers have given the scheme a contemporary twist.It helps that they’ve gone for a bright blue, which is enough of a modern contrast with the timeless cream to change the feel of the whole room.See these winning kitchen colour combinations
