Last year we had a huge extension which, although was an absolute nightmare at the time, was well worth the stress and upheaval.
It’s been approximately 9 months since the main bulk of the work finished and we’re now all getting used to the extra space. I particularly love our kitchen/dining/family space, which really is the heart of our home.
For years I’ve always loved houses that have a kitchen/diner that’s really light and airy and provides a great entertaining space. I love watching property and home renovation television programmes and have been so envious when houses have this type of beautiful space.
When we were planning our extension I knew straightaway that I wanted roof windows in the ceiling above the dining area and bi-folding doors that open right up to bring the outside in – it was so exciting to finally be able to create this sort of space!
Whilst planning, and also during, our extention
I spent so much time on Pinterest (check out my kitchen/diner board here) and websites like VELUX to get inspiration and ideas, and I’m really pleased with the finished look. As a family we spend so much time in there, cooking, eating, playing, chatting and working – it really is the heart of our home. We’ve also had a few shindigs with our friends, particularly over Christmas, and it’s perfect for entertaining – the little sitting area makes a great dance floor!
We love our new space and couldn’t be happier with it. I think this area, and my new dressing room are definitely my favourite rooms in our house.
Which room in your house is your favourite?
