The biggest challenge was how to reconfigure the middle of the house. ‘The wall between the front living room and the dining room had been removed by the previous owners, so we reinstated it to create a “grown-up” lounge,’ say the couple. ‘We then allocated the darkest space for a downstairs cloakroom and storage.

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.

We would have liked everything to be white, but that’s not realistic with a young family. In the dining area, a wallpaper mural adds atmosphere and depth to the white scheme. ‘It’s the first thing people comment on,’ say the owners.

The granite worktops were our big splurge, but we shopped around for bargains for the rest of the room.
