COME ON IN!
ABOUT ME I’m Sam Lambert, 32, and I live with my fiance Matt, 33, and our house rabbits, Chip and Wally, in a three-bedroom Edwardian terraced house in Flintshire, North Wales. We bought the property in 2009, but didn’t move in until 2011 after most of the renovations were completed.
MY CHALLENGE The kitchen had been created by a previous owner knocking the back of the house into a coal shed to form one large space. The kitchen was squeezed into a small area of the room and it was very poorly put together, with handles missing and shelves propped up with tins of beans!
MY WISH LIST We wanted to completely refresh the space and improve the layout so the kitchen didn’t feel cramped. Having lots of storage was important to us and I envisaged a bright kitchen with country-style units.
