A colourful London homeContemporary Kitchen, London
What Houzz contributors are saying:
Install in shelvesSpotlights fitted into the shelves in this kitchen side return look extremely discreet, but send a wash of light down the wall and onto the worktop. The eye is drawn to the steel support running down the roof space; its vibrant yellow draws the eye, while the light fittings are underplayed and chosen for practicality above all else.
Before the renovations, the kitchen was small, with a low ceiling. Digging down increased the space vertically, while extending into the side return boosted its footprint. Skylights above allow plenty of light to flow in, while glass doors at the back give access to the garden. Rather than box in the supporting beam, Emma painted it yellow. ‘It was more fun to make a feature of it,’ she says.
