And the owners now have the island they had always wanted. ‘We didn’t hold back on size,’ they say. ‘The island is big enough to have our fridge, freezer and dishwasher built in, plus a cupboard for the recycling, so it’s a multifunctional cook’s zone.’ To the right is a counter-top cupboard that holds everything the family need for speedy breakfasts in the morning.

Start tiling from above the mantel, or, if you don’t have one, start from a baton levelled with a spirit level (not the skirting or floor as these can be uneven). Apply a thick layer of tile adhesive to the wall using a tile float (a metal spatula with a serracted edge). Use tile spacers, or, if the tiles are uneven, judge the space by eye. Grout tiles after placing them in position using a grouting float.

The original kitchen was tiny with only enough space for one person. ‘One of us was always alone cooking dinner, while the rest of the family were in another room,’ say the owners. ‘But now the new kitchen is complete, the children love running in and out of the garden and we can have huge parties and talk to our guests while we cook.’ The other thing that is great in this sociable set-up is the wine fridge and rack – their clever placement in the island makes it easy for guests to help themselves.

The trick is to use one colour for each area to keep the look clean – the dining chairs are a good example, as they are all painted in the same green. As a result of the logical separations of each ‘section’, the look is harmonious, rather than jarring.

In the past, cleaning involved lifting off the heavy metal pan supports and cleaning around the gas burners and temperature controls. But, invest in an induction hob and cleaning is made so much easier. Using electromagnetic waves to emit heat just to the pan surface, spillages won’t stick to the hob surface and all you’ll need is a damp cloth to wipe any stains away.

Unvarnished wood acts almost like a halfway house between both colours, blending seamlessly with the scheme. Privacy film used on the bottom panes of the windows stops prying eyes peeking in, but also creates a pretty feature with the tree design.

Vibrant orange will always pack a punch in a dining room, but introduce it through a circular motif wallpaper and the effect is all the more intense. Counterbalance with blue tableware and a single velvet statement chair in cobalt to stand out and harmonise. Enhance the relaxed retro vibe with on-trend mid-century style furniture.

Let your freezer do the hard work, we all dread the day the fridge or freezer starts frosting up, and it’s only a matter of time before you’ll need to go through the inconvenience of letting it defrost – while all your freezer food starts to spoil. Fortunately, Beko has a range of frost-free models so you’ll never have to defrost the freezer again. The adjustable glass shelves are also easy to clean, while the antibacterial door-seal stops bacteria from entering the fridge.

A great way to make a small living room feel larger is to keep it meticulously tidy and in order to do that, everything in the room needs to have its proper place. Floating shelves are perfect for small rooms because they can hold a lot of things on a wall or in alcoves, or choose bespoke fitted, floor-to-ceiling shelves and cupboards that make use of every inch of spare space.
