Small kitchen makeover with reconfigured space

Kitchens are the heart of any home and a well-designed space will have plenty of storage, maximum worktop space and enough room to house all the necessary appliances. In my Victorian terrace, the kitchen had an awkward l-shaped run of units which didn’t make best use of the space. The appliances were bulky and freestanding and the only access to the garden was through a rather shabby side door.

kitchen-makeover-v1I decided to change the layout of the cabinetry, using a run of cabinets across just one wall. I hunted down a small dishwasher and compact sink, but the rest of the appliances, including a built-in oven, a fridge freezer and a freestanding washing machine, are all a standard size. I chose glass-fronted wall cabinets to open up the space even further (and offer much needed storage). The result is a light and bright kitchen which feels both welcoming and practical.


I also decided to brick up the side door and add a set of french doors. This meant the kitchen went from drab and dingy to light and bright. The cheap vinyl floor was replaced with stone tiles and the radiator was removed and placed were the old door used to be. The kitchen feels wonderfully bright and welcoming. The cabinets are by Handmade Kitchens Direct, painted in Ammonite by Farrow & Ball. The floor tiles are from Topps Tiles. Take a look at the before shot below…
