This couple wanted to have a light open space that connected to the other living areas close by. Maximum storage in their Utility was essential and even better if it could be hidden away! The use of colour and patterns to match their personalities were an important factor. Lastly a large Island with clean cooking areas that can accommodate their summer entertaining and the annual family party in July!
We suggested opening up the original area to create one large living space that could accommodate the large sliding door system to open out into the garden. Clever storage options hidden in a tall run conceals the pocket door system to the utility. The island houses the cooking and cleaning areas and more critical storage. A Nikola Tesla extraction hob was used due to the large sky light above the island. Interior design options for colours and textures were explored and we paired SieMatic lotus white and graphite oak veneer to create a distinct contrast.
The utility has generous tall units to accommodate critical storage without closing in the space too much.
After discussing the interior design elements at length, we used a bold colourful wallpaper as an amazing feature that ties the whole space to the rest of the house. The client now has a much more harmonious space that includes formal dining, informal breakfast area and a snug. The area is now have a light, spacious area which the clients are so happy to be in and they can’t wait to use it for entertaining.
