The original layout on the ground floor of this beautiful semi detached property included a small well aged kitchen connected to the dinning area by a 70’s brick bar!
Since the kitchen is 'the heart of every home' and 'everyone always ends up in the kitchen at a party' our brief was to create an open plan space respecting the buildings original internal features and highlighting the large sash windows that over look the garden.

What Houzz contributors are saying:
Open upDepending on the proportions of your U-shaped kitchen, if you pack out all three sides, you could end up with a crowded room. Create a more spacious feel by swapping solid units on one wall for open shelving. In this scheme, the designers have used slim shelves to make use of the shallow space beside the window. A low unit beneath the window adds a small amount of additional storage as well as a spot to perch.
7. Sometimes, getting more cabinets and cupboards installed along all the walls might not be within everyone’s budget. These could also make the kitchen seem too boxy and small. Inside an L-shaped kitchen, often there is an unused patch of wall either next to the stove or sink, or where the two adjacent walls meet. Install pegs, wire racks, wooden palettes or hanging baskets here.
