Family House in North LondonTransitional Dining Room, London

The rear of the property has been extended to the side and opened up into the garden with aluminium French doors with traditional divisions.
The kitchen is Italian, with recessed metal handles and a light coloured marble worktop, which encompasses the freestanding kitchen island on three sides. The fronts have been painted in a Farrow and Ball colour.
The floor tiles are hand made, on top of underfloor heating.

    @ Robyn Jaquet : I'm glad you like it, our builders sourced it directly. Its regular double glazed aluminium double glazed doors and fixed windows, the key is to design the proportions and divisions so it looks nice.

    based on ratio principles such as grouping things in 3s 5s and 7s etc for casual and even numbers for formal symmetrical designs. love all the light flooding in, simply wonderful!

What an airy, serene kitchen-diner. Though Scandi style is a clear theme, gentle nods to the home’s heritage also add character, such as the black-framed metal garden doors, factory-style lighting, open shelving and classic marble worktops. Oh yes, and you must check out the rest of the tour to see the amazing bathroom floor tiles Canham chose.

Consider a ‘broken-plan’ layoutAlthough the family knocked through the ground-floor living rooms to open up the space, they decided to keep the kitchen and dining area separate from the living rooms, creating a ‘broken-plan’ layout in the process.“We wanted a separate space for cooking and family living,” Canham says, so she made sure to create a clear division between the living and cooking and eating spaces. A broken-plan layout can bridge the gap between a traditional ‘closed’ layout and a contemporary open-plan space. By dividing your overall space more subtly, the aim is to hold onto an appealing sense of light and space throughout, but to provide a clear distinction between separate ‘zones’.Read professional advice on how to design a broken-plan space.

The family decided not to totally open up the ground floor. “We wanted a separate space for cooking and family living,” Canham says. Thanks to the new side return extension, the Scandi-style kitchen-diner has a airy, uplifting feel. Glazed doors pull in lots of light and open straight onto the garden. In fact, this is one of Canham’s favourite things about her new home. “I love the way the kitchen looks out onto the garden, as well as the beautiful cement floor tiles in here.”Voltaire floor tiles in Whisper, Marrakech Design.
