Combining a tiny kitchen and an adjoining dining room, then extending out, has given the owners a huge all-in-one space that suits their sociable lifestyle. The owners moved into their four-bed semi in 2014 and, after a year of dreaming up their perfect kitchen, they hired a builder, who came highly recommended by friends, to extend 5m into the garden. ‘We hit a snag when we found out that the roots of a protected oak tree in our garden were threatening to damage the new foundations, so we had to have the extension underpinned,’ say the couple. ‘This really ate into our budget, so we had to prioritise. The granite worktops were our big splurge, but we shopped around for bargains for the rest of the room.

Take time to consider the size of the room and also the amount of natural light it receives, as it may take on a more practical use in the daytime, for homework or housekeeping, for example. A room flooded with light can hold its own during the day when decorated with dark colours, which in turn will be the ideal back drop for an intimate setting in the evening. However, a naturally darker room may benefit from a lighter touch of pale shades throughout the day, which can be warmed up with subtle lighting at nightfall.

District the eye with characterful furnishings, while banishing clutter might help a smaller living room feel more open, if you’re a fan of the cosy, lived-in look such a pared back scheme will do little for you. But small doesn’t have to mean bare and characterless. Try the classic combination of dark leather armchair and traditional fireplace – there’s nothing like it for creating a warm, cosy environment. Add much-loved items and accessories – in an interesting, character-filled scheme, no one will be thinking about how small the room is.

Having moved out for three months during the worst of the building work, the couple returned to a house that was still in a complete state. ‘It had no rear and we could only use two bedrooms and a bathroom, all of them crammed with furniture and things from downstairs,’ they say. ‘For two months, we were also without a kitchen and managed by doing most of the cooking on the barbecue.

The new palette is a bit more restrained, with pale blues, greys and darker, inky shades proving a big hit – though that doesn’t mean you can’t have fun with kitchen colour, as you will see in the schemes below. Tone is important too – even within the grey family, warmer greys create a different feel from blue-based shades of slate.

This room has a lot of interesting elements, but it’s completely neutral. Exposed brickwork is very on-trend right now and adds warmth, with its earthy tones. Monochrome picture frames hung in a group on the wall are also an eye-catching part of the scheme.

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. Solid-wood flooring has been used throughout the open-plan space. ‘It’s cool in summer and warm in winter, and is highly durable in a family space.
