The old 80s – style conservatory and dated, awkwardly shaped dining room together with cluttered lobby areas and an outdated shower room were in need of re-design, refurbishment and renovation! So we set to: to pull down walls creating space, adding new partition walls, removing the wooden conservatory and replacing it with an extension. The remit was to design an entertaining area ensuring ample space for a large dining table, a comfortable seating area the focal point being a cosy wood burner. The small bespoke kitchen needed to be practical – in traditional terms a “Bultler’s Service Area” and finally a guest bedroom with shower room.

The feel of the refurbishment needed to fall correctly within the context of the period style of the house but at the same time if the lifecycle of the house was going to be extended – things needed to be contemporary. Three sets of steel doors and a large steel framed panel window did just that. They also complemented the leaded windows in the old part of the property perfectly. The principal paint colour palette was neutral, with the exception of the dark blue “ Squid Ink” Paint Library colour on the chimney breast and the wonderful Cole and Son wallpaper “ Palm Jungle” which was added on the curved and returning wall leading to the bedroom suite. The oak – engineered herringbone flooring was meticulously laid, A small bespoke range of kitchen units was added, which included a discrete dishwasher, fridge with freezer, a preparation sink and cupboard added for essential storage offering a fabulous preparation area. In the rest of the room, the art work “did the talking” and the view of the well established garden completed the overall feel of a contemporary garden room.
