What Houzz contributors are saying:
Once the three rooms were knocked into one, Tanya fitted a new kitchen at one end, with units in two colours. The cottage has views across the sea towards St Michael’s Mount and, with this spectacular outlook plus a lively household of young children and dogs, restful colours that toned with the landscape were called for.The entrance to this end of the room used to be a single door with a little window alongside, but the two were combined into a double door opening. French windows now maximise the flow of light.On the other side of the double doors is a playroom, plus a utility room containing a ground source heat pump, hot-water cylinder, washing machine, tumble drier, sink and storage.Kitchen, DeVOL, painted in Mushroom and Pantry Blue.

Complement light and darkWant to add some dark tones while maintaining a light, airy feel in your kitchen? Use a deeper shade in just one area, and keep the rest of the units pale.Here, a wall of light grey cabinets makes the room feel bright and spacious, while the dark blue island adds a sophisticated element. The two hues help to offset each other – one lightens the mood; the other gives the space some depth.
