    Hi, thanks for your interest and huge apologies for not answering your question sooner - it just popped up in my 'unanswered questions' list! The bar stools are Mar-Den

    Best wishes!

    Thanks so much! The floor is the original pine floorboards, sanded, sealed, stained and varnished. If you don't have original boards you could recreate this look by buying unfinished pine boards and staining (try Colron Jacobean Oak wood stain) then varnishing with a clear lacquer. Good luck!

    Hi, thanks so much! They're from a wonderful UK-based kitchen company called DIY Kitchens. If you have the patience to design (from scratch) your kitchen they have a brilliant range of cabinetry. These units are from the

    'Luca Lamp Room Grey Handleless' range but they also offer the option of bespoke painted units using any colour from the Farrow & Ball range.

Katy moved the kitchen to the new, open-plan living space, choosing sleek, pale grey, handleless cabinets, and a peninsula facing out to the seating and dining areas.Tell us…Which of these open-plan makeovers could work in your home? Share your thoughts in the Comments section.

At the heart of the new kitchen/living space is a large peninsula unit that divides the cooking and living areas. “It’s perfect for dining,” says Stevenson Bretton. “And the whole space suits how people want to live nowadays.” Simple, handleless units in a soft grey were chosen as they blend into the background, which is ideal in an open-plan living space. The tap and sink were in the original kitchen. “They were the only things we managed to recycle from the flat as it was before,” says Stevenson Bretton.

Go green There isn’t a room in the house that wouldn’t benefit from the addition of a few plants. Oversized varieties such as figs, monstera and palms are on-trent, as are cacti and succulents. Try popping your plant pot inside a basket to ring a rustic change, or borrow a worn terracotta number from outside for an organic vibe with zero effort.

Keep things simpleThe owner of this kitchen in an ex-local authority flat has chosen an ultra-simple design for a greater sense of space. The pale grey units are light enough to keep the overall effect fresh and cool. Don’t want to sacrifice storage for open space? Breaking up a bank of wall units with a small expanse of shelving can ‘lead’ the eye, and help the room seem less closed in. Similarly, eschewing a decorative or colourful splashback can help stop a small space feeling too busy – these plain white metro tiles with white grout keep the look minimal.Read more about this kitchen

Stevenson Bretton decided to convert this into a kitchen and living space combined. “There’s a large peninsula for dining,” she says. “The whole space suits how people want to live nowadays.”
