As keen gardeners and cooks Avril and Stephen wanted a tidy boot/ utility room to store their vegetables and flowers straight from their beautiful garden. Coming straight in from their garden, this room had to do a lot of tasks.
Their wish list had to have an area for wellington boots and shoes, an area to wash hands and vegetables, a space for their laundry appliances plus a tall integrated freezer for freezing meals and garden produce, a new larder/ pantry cupboard with drawer storage and a tall cupboard to hide their new boiler. With space saving ideas in all areas, we came up with exactly their dream boot/ utility room.
By adding a solid oak window cill, plus an oak seat with coat hanging above (all made at our workshops), they were delighted with the end result.
The kitchen needed a small revamp to bring it up to date. By fitting new coloured glass splashbacks and glass upstands in ‘Green smoke’ and by removing a wall cupboard and a ‘fly-over lighting shelf’ above the window, the light came flooding in. Fitting a new modern cornice improved things even more and has made their kitchen more contemporary in feel.
