The kitchen is the newest part of the house; part of the house extension the previous home owners had done. It's the one place that didn't really need any work done to it. All we really bought was some stools for the breakfast bar and a few accessories to put our own stamp on it. Luckily it's all white with white integrated units, white walls and wooden worktops. There is a bright pink splash back which I wasn't sure about at first. The rest of the house is quite neutral with lots of cream and brown tones so the kitchen stands out compared to the rest of the house. Luckily lots of my crockery and kitchen accessories are grey and geometric which goes quite nicely with the pink, so I’m just embracing it!
When we came to see the house the previous owners had a big sofa and rug at the end of the kitchen. Initially I was hoping to use the space for a dining table to have open plan kitchen dining area but I think fitting a table in might have been a bit of a squeeze as well as blocking the walkway to the snug. We decided to put a drinks cabinet in the space and then a large jute rug to brighten up that end of the kitchen.
At the other end is a window and bi-fold doors that lead out into the garden. It’s lovely as it really brings in so much natural light, making it a light and airy space.
The bar stools were from Dunelm and I like the contrast of the wooden seats against all the white. They were one of the first things we bought so we could actually sit at the kitchen island.
I’m pleased with how it’s looking, and adding lots more textures like the wood finishes and natural tones adds warmth to the kitchen. Not a big makeover but thought I would share how we’ve updated it!
