This former farmhouse kitchen was remodelled into a spacious utility and boot room when my clients converted the barn adjoining their farmhouse into a new kitchen dining space. The room has a feature inglenook fireplace which was formerly the cooker space. This was redesigned and re-purposed into a cloakroom space including shoe cubicles, welly storage, coat and hat hanging plus an integrated bench. A tall and deep cupboard with dog bed below were built into a former but no longer required doorway. The lovely worn original flagstone floor plus the painting over the timber cabinet were the starting point for colours and we chose a soft olive green for some of the walls and cabinetry to work with these.
The new kitchen, dining and living space was added within the barn adjoining my clients' farmhouse. The former kitchen, though large was relatively dark with only one window and busy with cabinetry and open shelving. The resultant space shown here is much lighter and has allowed for a more contemporary look.
