The Leveton family live in an old dame, a spacious home in the Milnerton area. Kim was requested to update their kitchen area, a place where the family spends an enormous amount of their time. The brief was to provide a modern country kitchen that would be the heart of the house and a place where certain tasks and family activities could be comfortably completed.
Kim’s first task was to tackle the layout. The original kitchen was long and narrow with areas not sufficiently demarcated for comfortable use. She subdivided the space to create a proper scullery and laundry hidden from sight and changed the window and door schedule.
The next step was to create a scheme that would deliver the brief of modern country kitchen. She combined traditional elements with modern ones such as the copper tap with a graphic tile, wood with stone, hexagon tiles with cream cupboards, and brought nature in with wallpaper and herbs to deliver a warm kitchen that is also functional and modern.
