For this project, the stud wall separating the
kitchen from the dining room was removed creating a
wonderful open space and allowing the kitchen units
to extend through into the newly formed space.

heating was installed to keep the new room cosy and

A niche with a mirrored back and LED light gave
the new kitchen a wonderful focal point. The look

which are easy to maintain, practical and also create
a luxurious feel with its shimmer-effect finish.
