New York Loft style open plan - where to start from?

4 years ago

Hi, we are planning an
open plan kitchen extension; however we feel overwhelmed by the number of
decisions we have to make. The open plan area is highlighted in light blue in
the diagram below. A vertical support beam is required in the middle of the
room as shown with the blue dot.

We will be having a 6
meter wide sliding doors to the garden and considering installing 2 lanterns on
the flat roof (although thinking of having one bigger lantern instead).

What we are struggling
to decide on is how to achieve the New York loft style/soft industrial look. We have
an 8 seater solid dark oak table with a couple of matching cabinets. We have
been thinking of a white/grey/anthracite kitchen with a breakfast table (wood
or wood effect) however not sure whether to go for a combination of the colours
and or whether to go for gloss or mat. It makes sense to have a wall kitchen to
the left. We have also been thinking for an exposed brick wall (right
wall opposite kitchen) to bring the industrial element to it with the remaining
walls painted in white. Also as we are installing under floor heating the
dilemma is what colour floor to use (most likely LVT or laminate) and how
to zone the kitchen with the rest of the room. Are there any dos or don’ts that
we should be considering in this project to make the design enjoyable rather
than stressful?

We would be grateful
if you could share your opinion with us!!

Thanks so much
