Cosy Cottage bespoke kitchen

The Situation

  • A quaint stone built village property with large rear garden, low ceilings and deep walls, that the owners wanted to turn into an idylic Cosy Cottage bespoke kitchen.
  • The property had previously been a shop and a school but when converted to a home in the 1980’s all the period  features were unfortunatley removed.
  • The cosy property had well planned out bedrooms and first floor space however the ground floor in comparison felt very compact, with a large poorly propositioned L-shaped living space.
  • The brief was to completely revise the layout and ground floor décor to produce a family friendly space, with well proportioned rooms and to take account for a potential future rear extension.

The Approach

  • A detailed survey was carried out and extensive brief taken.
  • Design analysis on the layout was carried out to look at different rooms, install focal points and preliminary furniture plans.
  • Three layout plans were produced until a final design was decided, this was then overlaid with an overall concept board and the sample boards for each of the proposed rooms.
  • Features such as the faux chimney and flu less gas fire were researched for cost and suitability.
  • Detailed costing and furniture, fittings and equipment schedules were produced along with construction drawings.
  • The kitchen was treated as a separate design project but included as an extension of the concept for the greater space.
  • Detailed electric plans and plumbing were produced for construction along with a plan and design for

The Result

  • A cosy family space with a completely revised layout including a large inclusive kitchen, diner and utility room, open plan living room with separate playroom.
  • A false chimney breast and stunning flue-less gas fire was added to the living room with carefully chosen furniture adding focal points.
  • Luxury oak and travertine flooring, rich fabrics juxtaposed with antique furniture to give a cosy contemporary feel.
  • A bespoke kitchen with a hint of country style works beautifully with the low ceilings and thick stone walls.
  • The relaxed colour scheme make the space homely, yet un-cluttered and additional storage and office space meant through careful layout planning every inch of space was used to it’s full potential.
