They also decided to start with high units, moving lower with the peninsula, dining table and sofa, for a pleasing sight line. Building a small side return extension has added width to the space and four Velux windows in this newer part of the building, plus sliding glass doors, allow the light to flood in.

Deep, load-bearing drawers were included to hold cookware and tableware. ‘They’re easier to access than cupboards and help keep the kitchen tidy,’ say the owners.
Averyl Dufour Dining Room, 2017-09-15 19:53:23. Whilst the majority of people have breakfast in the kitchen, it does not have to be vast for you to create an appealing place to eat. Where space is tight, think clever hidden storage to maximise the space, such as a drop down tabletop that can be tucked back up when not in use. If you have an existing kitchen island, adopt a bistro style feel by adding stools along one side or around one end and help keep the cook a part of the action. Alternatively, create a built in seating nook in a corner, ideal for keeping children from under your feet while you cook. Decorate the space with family pictures or a gallery of artwork, or create a blackboard with chalkboard paint to scribble down reminders for the day.
Averyl Dufour Bathroom, 2017-09-15 19:55:48. Characterise with colour: This compact modern bathroom uses a number of techniques to create real wow factor, despite the small square-footage. Add a hearty dose of colour to inject vibrancy and personality into a white bathroom otherwise at risk of feeling clinical and characterless. A bright yellow ceiling and shower screen give this small bathroom a real focal point, while downlighters and white tiles keep the space feeling light and bright.

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.
Averyl Dufour Living Room, 2017-09-15 19:52:55. Small living rooms need to be kept fresh and uncluttered with well-chosen storage. 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.

This is where dishwashers come into their own, but in a small kitchen you may not think there’s room to fit one. Beko has tackled this problem and introduced slick slimline models. The cutlery basket is removable and the plate supports and cup racks are foldable, so you can change the layout to suit your needs. And what’s more, all of Beko’s built-in dishwashers can tackle a full load in just 30 minutes.
Averyl Dufour Office, 2017-09-15 19:53:09. Alcove home office with fold-down desk, creating a work area in a corner is a great way to make use of otherwise under-used space. An alcove is ideal for this as it does not encroach too much on the rest of the room. Create a comfortable feel by using soft colours such as taupe and dusky pink that are easy to live with and will co-ordinate with other tones. Look for a fold-down desk like this one; it provides surface space when needed and folds up out of the way when not.

This shade tones beautifully with the chocolate-brown grain of walnut and other dark woods throughout the space. Pendants hung above the island provide much-needed task lighting, while emphasising the importance of the island at the same time.

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.
Averyl Dufour Bathroom, 2017-09-15 19:55:01. Have recessed shelving built in: Recessed shelves are a great space saver, both practically and visually, keeping toiletries neat and off the surfaces. Building the shelves into false walls that hide pipework is a clever use of a necessary feature. Also consider recessed light fittings – either spot or linear. A wet room can make the most of a small space and add value to your property. If you’re converting an attic, consider a wet room instead of a bathroom. It’s a great way to make the most out of a small space and when it’s beautifully finished like this designer-style one, it’s stunning. Ventilation is key as a build-up of moisture could lead to condensation and damp problems, so install a good extractor fan. Underfloor heating doesn’t take up any space but will add warmth and help to dry surfaces quickly.
