Upcycled Kitchen and Family room

Project requirements and design

For this project, our customers were a young family who wanted to up-cycle their old kitchen and develop their new family room extension, focusing on being environmentally friendly. I measured up the site and later prepared an inspiration package with different ideas and styles to help customers envision their new kitchen and family room.

At a later date we met with the client to discuss the CAD system plans, suitable styles for their new living room and kitchen furniture as well as costs and timescales for the project. In the meeting we worked out where the old units needed removing and decluttering to finalise the project plan and requirements.

Kitchen and family room updates

We upcycled the center island and incorporated a storage bookcase, a breakfast bar with hidden storage in the footwell area as well as a wine cooler, boiling kettle tap and a larger sink. We also modified the granite top prep area by removing the oversized butchers block and redesigning the pull out bins. The cooker stove area was redesigned to create an open plan room divider area between the kitchen and the family room. A new granite worktop was installed to match the materials used in kitchen. Microwave oven housing under drawer area was replaced with a plate warming drawer unit.

This project additionally involved creating a new wooden floor and a large standing pantry with center bi-folding cupboards, worktop prep area and storage space below that balances the existing large family area.

New family room extension incorporated a window seating area that offers additional storage space. New home hobby area included a large worktop and plenty of storage space including a cupboard with bi-folding doors and drawers underneath the worktop to store sewing machines and other equipment.
