Open Plan Kitchen / Garden Room


Project Overview

Here our client had their own architects and structural design plans. The aim was to create an open plan kitchen / Diner that joined with the garden. The ceiling was to be the centre piece. A lantern effect enabling you to enjoy the sky. Some of the night sky images are amazing.

In this section we like to provide you with the key things that pleased either us or the client.

Sliding Doors – More specifically the hinges. Traditional sliding patio doors always sit within the patio space. Supplied and fitted bespoke hinge style folding doors (extra space). One of our designs that I think it will become very popular in the years to come.

Minimal Waste – Using rubble etc. is a great way to keep project costs down, reduce our impact on the environment and move the project along quickly. Waste not, want not!

Going the extra mile – And within the project timescale. We created two outside storage areas at the clients request. These were not in the original project timing, but with a little planning they fitted in nicely.
