About Me I’m Jil­lian Don­ald­son, 46, and I live in a three-bed 1950s de­tached villa in Belfast with my hus­band Jim, 55, who works in It, and our sons Jack, 8, and Ryan, 7. My chal­lenge We loved this house be­cause of its lo­ca­tion, but even though the kitchen had been ex­tended in the past, it was still too small for us. I’d dreamt of a free­stand­ing kitchen for years. they’ve al­ways ap­pealed to me as they look so re­laxed and ca­sual, but it’s dif­fi­cult to get the fin­ish right and unify the whole scheme. My wish list as the boys were get­ting older I was keen to have a large fam­ily space where we could all spend qual­ity time to­gether. I wanted to cre­ate a kitchen-diner/ liv­ing room so the boys could do their home­work while I pre­pared din­ner. We knew it would be a per­fect area for en­ter­tain­ing, too.
