INTERIOR DESIGN IN LIVING ROOMS

From dated 80’s kitchen to modern, cosy living room

THE BRIEF

Replace an old kitchen and create a cosy room for watching TV, listening to music and reading. Book storage and good lighting required.

SOLUTION

The old kitchen was ripped out and the fireplace was lowered to fit a new gas burning stove.

The walls were re-plastered and painted in a cosy dark green shade, along with the skirting and ceiling. The windows and doors were made into a feature by painting them in an off-black hue to create an alternative focal point.

The dated tiled floor was replaced with an antiqued parquet engineered wood floor to introduce extra pattern and texture.

Modern wall mounted shelving and TV unit provide ample, practical storage.

A full electrical plan provided extra sockets for the TV, off-centre pendants, lamps and wall lights to create a layered look and enhance the low ceiling.

THE BRIEF

To update and link two reception rooms whilst retaining their own individual functions. Reinstate and repair original features in keeping with the house and provide a formal but comfortable seating area.

SOLUTION

The rooms were rewired and recessed spotlights were installed to highlight pictures and mirrors. Matching decorative pendants and wall lights fitted in each room for a cohesive look.

The original pine floorboards were stripped and finished in a white oil, both fireplaces were renovated and a new wood burner was installed in the main living room.

New bespoke alcove cupboards provide plenty of storage (the cupboard in the main room hides a wall mounted TV). Newly upholstered sofas give them a fresh, updated look, to complement the redesigned scheme.
