The lay­out

Country Homes & Interiors - - COUNTRY KITCHEN FOCUS -

In­cor­po­rat­ing space from the orig­i­nal house, plus a new ex­ten­sion, has al­lowed a gen­er­ous L-shape run of kitchen units and an is­land. The sink el­e­va­tion over­looks the gar­den, as does the din­ing ta­ble, via fold­ing glazed doors. The TV snug is tucked to­wards the back of the room, cre­at­ing a qui­eter re­lax­ation area away from the kitchen’s hub.

‘We used ac­ces­sories, such as the in­dus­trial bar stools and vin­tage-style light­ing, to keep things looking young and fresh – I didn’t want anything too stuffy’

A faux chim­ney breast cre­ates a strik­ing room fea­ture and is the per­fect home for Ni­cola’s beloved range.

An 80cm-wide gap be­tween the cooker and is­land is ideal for er­gonom­i­cally ef­fi­cient cook­ing.
