The client’s brief was very detailed for this design, with the focus being an airy and open feeling without looking too much like a kitchen.

Previously, the first thing that you would have seen coming into the space was an AGA, so I relocated that to the other wall, this helped me to avoid the “kitcheny” look as you enter the room. Continuing along these lines I designed the dining area to have some glass units and wall panelling which would grab your attention. Mirror splashback was used to bring more light into the room.
