Kate Burt added this to Kitchen Tour: A Petite Terrace Gains Space Without Being Extended26 November 2019

The original door into what is now the area was right in the middle of the bench seat. Cathy budged it up to the hallway end of the room to create more useable wall space. She also packed in functionality and storage. Counterintuitively, she chose to shrink the room a little so as to build a false wall to house the tall cupboards seen here. These conceal shelving, the boiler and a TV. “This dining area has become a snuggly evening room for the parents while the children are watching television in the living room,” Cathy says.On either side of the seating unit are full-height cupboards filled with pull-out baskets – one cupboard for each daughter and her own craft supplies. The storage beneath the bench was made by a joiner. “They’re very small cupboards but very useful,” Cathy says. “There are data sockets inside, so Katie can plug in her ethernet cable and edit photos on her laptop at the kitchen table.”Katie and her husband already owned the table. “We considered getting a new one, but this is actually an Ercol one, so we stripped it and painted the legs,” Cathy says.Craft storage cupboards, Ikea with bespoke fronts. Chairs, Danetti. Bench upholstered in linen woven with copper, Robert Allen. Breezin copper wallpaper, Tektura. Table legs and ceiling painted in Shoreline, Benjamin Moore.

Lay a soft-edged ‘rug’If you have an open-plan kitchen-diner and living room, it can help to subtly zone each area. Creating a tile ‘rug’ under the table is one way to give the dining space its own identity.Here, plain white hexagons segue into patterned ones that link colourwise with the cabinetry. The six-sided tiles form a softer edge than linear ones would for a more relaxed feel.

Surround with storageHere’s a clever design: storage has been added on all sides of the bench seat. The designers have fitted attractive doors to the front of the banquette to hide any items stored underneath. They’ve also built a framework around the seats, and incorporated a shelf above and two tall units either side.The construction not only provides some extra storage, it also adds a cosy feel to the seating area.

I like the look of the color mix (a bit of blue, white, pops of brass in the lighting, plants, wood).
