Handpainted Country Kitchen
An old fire recess between the only two windows in the room, and dark wooden units contributed to a gloomy and outmoded look. A scheme using cream furniture with pale oak accessories and floor was the choice to lighten and update the kitchen. A canopy replaced the rather cumbersome fireplace, creating a lighter focal point over the Rayburn, with coordinated lighting pelmets over the adjacent windows.
A built-under oven with induction hob and built-in microwave complement the Rayburn to afford generous cooking capacity, with plentiful storage and worktop space. The creation of a large double-door cupboard provides space to conceal the large American top loading washing machine with a convenient hanging rail for airing clothes.
