An Extraordinary "Before and After"

If you love 'before and after' photos of interiors you're going to love this one! This space was once a standard sized bungalow which hadn't been altered or renovated since it was built in the 1930s.  Now it it has been extended to create a beautiful, spacious, open plan room at the rear which is flooded with natural light. The new pitched roof has created a feeling of endless space looking towards the sky through the roof lights.

Open plan living with an oak herringbone parquet floor throughout. 

Details such as the Calacutta quartz worktops bring interesting detail and texture...
 


Light floods into the kitchen from three angles.  This is the front view which used to be a bedroom next to the garage...


The large island has ample cooking and food preparation space, as well as being a great place to arrange a buffet. (Those were the days when we thought of family gatherings and parties!  Hoping to return to these one day soon.)

The tall, elegant chimneys on the bungalow are protected in this conservation area, so the fireplace hole was knocked through from the other side to create a contemporary built-in fireplace in the new kitchen.

Charcoal and white kitchen units create a monochromatic balance which is offset with the natural oak beams and herringbone floor...
White shutters at the windows let light flood through but also give privacy when required.
