    It is a limestone floor although it was a client's choice so I don't know the name.

Create a quiet zoneIn our article that focused on your thoughts about open-plan layouts, a common complaint was that there’s often not enough separation between the kitchen and living space. Although it’s sociable, some homeowners don’t want to feel as if they’re in the kitchen all the time and others want a separate haven away from the hubbub of the sociable space. The advice was to consider leaving the living room separate when planning an open-plan layout – or at least to create a quiet zone away from the main area for watching TV and relaxing. Add a sofa in the kitchen-diner space for sitting with a glass of wine, but avoid bringing soft furnishings and a TV into the cooking zone. Find out more opinions on open-plan kitchens

Leave out the TV“What becomes a real disaster (in our view) is when clients decide to add soft furnishings and a TV into the kitchen, particularly when there’s space for them to go elsewhere. Once this happens, principle living rooms become redundant, children ensconce themselves into the kitchen full time, and then there’s no escaping. Kitchens are for cooking and eating in. “By all means have somewhere to have a glass of wine and a social [such as the soft seating above], but we would definitely suggest not merging a living room and kitchen together unless the architecture offers no alternatives. Those that do live to regret it (particularly if they have children).”Artichoke

The island is made from new oak, which has been hand- planed to give it the effect of old wood. “I selected oak with an interesting grain, but avoided too many knots,” says Price. His team of specialists applied a bespoke finish in the workshop that adds to the aged feel. On one side of the island is a handy bank of drawers that holds knives, utensils and pans. An induction hob sits on top and provides an alternative cooking area to the Aga. Induction cooktop, Gaggenau.
