The farm­house

Country Life Every Week - - Interior Design Kitchens -

The less reg­u­lar spaces in pe­riod build­ings can in­tro­duce in­ter­est­ing de­sign dilem­mas for farm­house or cot­tage kitchens, but they also al­low for op­por­tu­ni­ties, be­lieves in­te­rior de­signer Hen­ri­etta Spencer-churchill. ‘Th­ese sorts of kitchens are bet­ter suited to cus­tombuilt cab­i­netry and open shelv­ing that can be tucked un­der beams and ben­e­fit from not re­quir­ing great depth.’

Paul Wal­ton of cab­i­net­maker Hal­stock agrees: ‘Be­spoke cab­i­netry al­lows the best use of a room: ev­ery inch of ir­reg­u­lar space, in which stan­dard units wouldn’t fit, can be used.’ Hang­ing racks for pans, a charg­ing drawer with lots of sock­ets for ipads and mo­biles, tai­lor-made recycling bins and fold­away sur­faces are ‘just a few ways to make a rel­a­tively small kitchen feel un­clut­tered,’ he adds.
