This was a project to transform a small fifties kitchen into an open plan space with lots of storage and without breaking the bank.
Clients wanted to brick up the door opening to the hallway to create additional space and they wanted to keep the original tile floor. A kitchen shop had suggested a standard lay-out with a full height fridge on the side of the dining room and a full height cupboard next to the window on the other side. I proposed something else: a long stretch of workspace on one side with a full fridge and storage wall on two other sides. I also suggested a combination of wood and pale yellow doors to match the floor.
