Design dilemma: when updating an older property, should the design be modern or in-keeping with the old … or a bit of both?
This Edwardian home was updated with a new staircase housing under stairs storage cupboards and a toilet. These were designed in-keeping with the original style, as they are part of the original house. A new utility cabinet and cloakroom cabinet mark the start of the new extension and were thus designed in a streamlined, modern style.
The new kitchen is classically beautiful – it is light and modern, but the design gives a nod to the original period of the house with its classic cabinet style and colour.
