THE OWNERS Denise Wilson, an administrator for a trust, and her husband Barry, a retired accountant THE HOME A converted fourbedroom Victorian schoolhouse in Nottinghamshire THE PROJECT Building work including an open-plan extension




for a similar Chiselwood kitchen, cabinetry only

fter 23 years of living in their converted schoolhouse, Denise and Barry Wilson decided it was time to give the beautiful period building the kitchen it deserved. ‘The scheme we first put in had become tired and dated,’ explains Denise. ‘The furniture was limed oak with dark-green worktops but, from the day it was done, I wasn’t happy with it. It was cold, as there was only a plinth heater, and quite dark. In fact, there were lots of problems with the design, which we didn’t want to repeat.’ Having learnt some valuable lessons, Denise spent years researching her next kitchen, focusing on how to make a warm and bright space. Eventually, after seeing some examples in magazines, she settled on the idea of an orangery-style extension with roof lanterns to flood the kitchen with daylight. That decided upon, she started searching for a kitchen company to design it for her. ‘I looked at friends’ houses, and viewed nearby showhomes to see the kind of things that were being put in,’ she recalls. ‘Plus, I visited about 20 kitchen showrooms!’


Dressers aren’t just for storage – they’re also great for showing off a collection of ceramics or accessories. Make sure they have grooved levels if you’re displaying plates, and mix and match colours and layer different pieces for a tiered effect. Pretty pastels suit country-style schemes, while bold shades add an eye-catching element to more modern kitchens.

THE RIGHT DESIGNER However, it was only when a local shop owner recommended Chiselwood that Denise and Barry paid the company a visit and they decided that they’d found the perfect people for them. ‘We knew straight away it was where we wanted to buy our kitchen,’ says Denise. ‘Designer Martin Holliday was so helpful and patient. He showed us Chiselwood’s workshop and we were impressed with the quality of the craftsmanship. I think we’d looked for so long that although I thought I knew what I wanted, I was frightened to make the wrong choice. Martin’s patience was invaluable.’ After seeing a feature in Beautiful Kitchens showing three different takes on a classic look, Denise realised that it was exactly what she

wo years after moving into their apartment on the south coast, Tara Borissow and Ben Johnson could no longer bear the existing kitchen. ‘The rest of the flat is stunning and this area needed something just as dramatic,’ Tara explains. ‘There was a lack of storage space and not enough room to cook properly.’ Keen to have a handmade scheme from a local company, the couple asked friends for recommendations and were soon pointed in the direction of Koop, where Tara and Ben explained their requirements to designer

Jeremy Long. After some discussion, the couple decided to change the original layout, as well as installing new cabinetry, moving the prep zone to the back of the room and creating a dining area by the front windows. While this meant relocating all the utilities, such as water and gas supplies, it enabled the design to have a peninsula at its heart. The unit could then house a hob, so that Tara and Ben would be able to cook while looking out over the dining area. Distinctive olive ash wood forms the cabinetry’s base units and open shelving,

Projects Bathrooms IN FOCUS Future technology

‘Mirrors may upgrade to become personal doctors – we might be able to get a health check by standing in front of them,’ says John Wilson, product training manager at Bathstore (0330 053 5661; ‘We could also have floor tiles that monitor our weight.’ ‘Products with user recognition features will become more common, such as we are seeing in other parts of the home with sensors,’ says Kelly Everest, marketing communications at Grohe UK (0871 200 3414; grohe. ‘Grohe’s Sensia shower toilet remembers your favourite cleansing settings.’

Give your bathroom a digital design edge with the latest time-saving gadgets


very room of the home can be enhanced with technology and the bathroom is no different. A recent Houzz UK survey found 16 per cent of recently updated showers, 11 per cent of WCs and 6 per cent of baths included high-tech features, such as digital controls and mood lighting. But tech isn’t just about indulgence – much of it is useful, saving time, money and energy or alerting you to potential problems.

Functional features

Part of the reason for the rise in technology in our bathrooms is that they’ve become a destination rather than a basic, functional space. Most 116 GRAND DESIGNS APRIL 2017

of the features are about transforming bathrooms into more efficient places and making life easier; adding value rather than being tech for tech’s sake. ‘Whether it’s something as simple as watching the news on a TV in your bathroom while you’re getting ready for work, or telling a bath to fill using a remote from your bed, gadgets are about convenience and saving time,’ explains Kirsten Wain, designer at West One Bathrooms. As well as being easy to use, technology is making bathrooms more hygienic, with touchless flushing, self-cleaning WCs, motion-sensor taps and automatic

lighting. Even the bathroom mirror has had a tech makeover. ‘Mirrors have become more than just a piece of glass,’ says Helen Shaw, marketing manager at Roper Rhodes (01225 303 900; ‘They’re practical light sources, with many featuring low-energy LEDs operated by no-touch infrared switches. Many feature digital displays and wireless Bluetooth technology with speaker systems so users can listen to music from their smartphone. Some will have demister pads to keep glass steam-free.’ Tech features can make using the bathroom safer, too, with thermostatic and digital showers

and taps keeping water at the right temperature – an especially useful feature for families with young children.

Contemporary and clever

Much like mobile phones and computers, the design of the latest bathroom tech is as high-end as its functions. ‘Technology has reached such a point now that it is not just about functionality,’ says Steve Kaye, marketing director at HiB. ‘Features that once might have been powered by a relatively large unit are now often run off the equivalent size of a microchip, which means that space is less of an issue. Today’s technology is about having both style and function, without compromising the design.’ Advances in manufacturing have allowed a multitude of clever products to be developed, such as TVs incorporated into mirrors with

demisting functions, rise-and-fall WCs or those that blend the washing function of a bidet with drying as well as integrated lighting and aromatherapy functions. Builtin audio systems are also becoming the norm, from the simplicity of Kohler’s Moxie showerhead speaker, £179 (0844 571 0048;, to Kaldewei’s Sound Wave, £477.62, available from – a receiver that plays music from a Bluetooth-enabled device, using the bath itself as the speaker.

Eco-friendly extras

As well as adding functionality and convenience to your bathroom, smart features help to save energy and water. Over the lifetime of your bathroom, these regular savings mount up. ‘Most people today step into a shower and spend the first 1-2 minutes running the water to avoid a cold shock, often adding another minute in winter, then they adjust

to their own preference,’ explains Simon Wells, research and development director at Aqualisa. ‘But smart showers can be set in a few clicks and indicate when temperature is reached. Some will have eco modes, while Aqualisa’s proximity sensor reduces flow by up to 10 per cent when you step away.’ Similarly, digital bath taps prevent tubs being overfilled and heated water wasted, while sensoractivated basin taps mean the tap will only dispense when required, excellent if you’re on a water meter. Converting lighting to LEDs will also help save energy, especially if you usually have halogen spotlights. LEDs use up to 85 per cent less energy than conventional lighting, with an average LED bulb costing £16.71 to buy and run over 10 years, compared with £126.98 for a halogen bulb.

Luxury addition


A modern renovation provided the perfect opportunity for Arran Patel to give his master suite a sophisticated feel


ew meets old in Arran Patel’s stunning marble-clad bathroom. Set in a Grade I-listed Gothic Revival building in central London, the investment banker’s apartment had an enviable location but its interior was anything but luxurious. Fortunately, Arran knew exactly who to approach to transform his three-bedroom penthouse into a modern destination – Thomas Griem, director at TGStudio. ‘The building had been converted into apartments in 2011 but the result was quite basic,’ explains Griem. ‘Arran decided it

was time for the apartment to be gutted and redesigned in 2013. He left it up to us to design and create his home and we were fortunate that he stepped back and let us go for it.’ The apartment covered the top three floors of a tower, measuring around 297sqm in total, but it was the top mezzanine, accessed by a private staircase and occupied by the master bedroom, walk-in wardrobe and en suite that would be Arran’s sanctuary away from the hustle and bustle of the city. ‘The bathroom was part of the larger renovation but we still wanted to create a hi-tech home



left Controls by Unique Automation allow every aspect of the shower to be controlled remotely via a smartphone, PC or tablet

where the technology elements were not obvious,’ continues Griem. ‘There were some limits due to the Grade I-listed status of the building – certain features, such as the wooden beams and unusual floor plan had to be kept for example.’ As the mezzanine was compact compared to the floor area of the rest of the apartment, the en suite needed to incorporate its hi-tech features seamlessly. ‘The shower has been designed to specifically suit Arran’s busy lifestyle,’ says Thomas. ‘We’ve included a large rainfall overhead shower, Big Rain by Dornbracht with iShower smart water controls by Unique Automation, which allow Arran to turn on the shower before he gets out of bed, so it’s at the perfect temperature when he steps in. Once in the shower, the built-in waterproof TV allows him to review the stock market and morning news.’

below An Aquavision waterproof TV has been positioned in the shower area and fits flush alongside the polished travertine tiles

Other touches of technology add a layer of luxury to the bathroom. ‘Arran loves having everything set to his preference, from the lighting levels to the music playing to the water temperature,’ reveals Griem. ‘It’s all controlled using a custom system from RTi, which, can be set from his phone.’ As the apartment is Arran’s European base between travelling frequently, getting the master en suite right was important, allowing him to refresh himself after each trip. ‘Technology has been utilised to make this as easy and swift as possible,’ says Griem. ‘Throughout the property the technology is hidden, except for a few control panels, and this was no different in the bathroom, with no visible controls beyond the norm. The technology does not get in the way of the design but, instead, elevates the functionality of the space.’ APRIL 2017 GRAND DESIGNS 121

Low-level drawers Drawers below the kitchen units are great for storing Infrequently used Items such as tea towels or trays. Try retrofitting a drawer in an existing plinth with m o d e m s measure Plinth Pods, from £58 to tit a 600mm base unit. Drawerboxes (0600 028 5588; draweraaxescouk)

aqiooker boiling water tap alongside the sink to remove the need for a countertop kettle, with a smart KWC up over the stainlesssteel sink. The n e x t section of the kitchen contains a Miele single oven and induction hob with a canopy attractor above. ‘Extmction was, asalways, achallenge with listed London properties; says lane. ‘However, it was discussed and designed with the architect before any ceiling finishes w e n t upsoit was in position ready for connection when the kitchen arrived.’ A trio of drawers sits n e x t to the cooking appliances, ideally located for storing pots and pans and cooking utensils. Each drawer has beautifully sculpted walnut sides, showing the attention to detail orthe overall design. There are more walnut drawers and shelving

in the final section orthe kitchen, which house dry goods. uodtery and glassware. Below three afthe four sections, diet: are also some shallow pullout drawers, which hold anything from baking trays to kitchen lincns. The entire kitchen sits neatly behind cleverly constructed pocket doors with a flush, handleless finish. 'lhese full height units have been handrpainted in white to match the walls of the space, but when they are opened, each door neatly slides back via a speeial mechanism into door dodu'. We worked closely with the couple and realised that the serenity ofthe scheme when the doors were closed m e a n t we could have something dramatic when open,’ says Jane. ‘A bright colour felt like a good option, sothey chose red. This gives the kitchen areally powerful but {on element. We had considered some

other options, such asveneers, but in the end the red was sostriking and injected a lot of fun into what was an

incredibly sophistiated scheme overall.’ The rich red laminate of rhe furniture has been matched by a custom-painted glass splashhack and complemented by q u fl m worktops in a chic osprey colour. Combined with the crisp white architecture of the property and beautiful timber flooring, the couple's sooet lotdten n o w feels like anintegial

panofdiespaeeandslillwowsramily and fiiends. ‘Abigail and Stuart were

deflghrei' reveakJane. 'Ihey eat o u t a lot, but also like to entertain in an infomal way and this kitchen was very much made to be used. Not only do they have sulfident worksurrace and storage, their open~plan aesthetic isn’t dominated by a kitchen They have the best of both worlds. APRiL 2017 M D E S G N S 113

permitted development i fi t meets certain criteria,‘ says Adrian Stoneham,

MD at Stoneham Kitchens (020 8300 8181; ‘For mmple, a side extension can't exceed 4min height,or bewider than half the width of the original house.' Check the pennined development

Hiring an architect is a good idea, although n o t essential for straightfomard schemes, where a structural engineer or builder may suffice. An architect will ensure that your plans are structurally sound, take care of plumbing and electrics ‐ which need to be considered at the planning stage - and recommend reliable trades or manage contractors. ‘ I f -)

after that, the plan required only minimal tweaking.‘ Corian worktops that extend down the side of the island opposite a bank of ovens, and amarble‐effect , porcelain splashback ensure the cooking area is easy to keep clean. The Corian worktop includes a couple of horizontal pop-up sockets that maintain the neat, uncluttered look by integrating into the surface

when n o t in use,‘ says Lemer. 2 Like many of his clients, the g Robertsons wanted practical

5 storage while maintaining the clean, E minimal overall appearance. This is always tricky in anopen-plan

kitchen,’ he reveals. ‘So, aswell as defining each section of the room and creating specific areas for cooking, eating and relaxing, we also had to include a number . _ of places to hide equipment away. These include abreakfast cupboard within the bank of tall units to house cereals, a kettle and toaster when n o t in use. A concealed wine rack, plus lots of cupboards within the island unit, keep everything at hand, but o u t of sight.‘ The family moved o u t for the entire build, and were delighted with the kitchen when they returned asit lived up to all their

expectations. ‘Far from becoming lost in what could potentially be a cavernous space, the island is central to the whole downstairs area and defines the kitchen zone,’ _ _ explains Lerner. ‘What 5 more, the kitchen also works asa family room with the dining area and TV corner clearly marked and within sight. As the kitchen is within a rear extension, there are also large sliding doors that open on to the garden. These offer additional natural lighting and connect the interior with the outside space, providing the family with an extended living area all year round.’ m MARCH 2017 “

completely level with the floor, so there are no steps to negotiate. It has achannel along its width at the front for drainage, so that water doesn’t leak on to the floor, and the tiles slope on a small gradient towards this gully. Omitting a glass door meant there would be one less surface to keep spotless, fitting with the couple's desire to have a low‐maintenance space. ‘The vanity unit and WC are hung on the wall, which makes the floor easier to elean,’ adds Hammond. There are other clever features, such asadigital shower by Mira that’s operated by remote control. 'Ihis allows the temperature for the w a t e r to be set before stepping into it. There's also a choice between a fixed overhead polished steel minshower and a hand spray. Underfloor heating runs throughout. sothe tiles dry quickly after use. ‘I included some design details that make the bathroom easier for

'For example, the light above the WC is sensor controlled, soif someone is using the room in the middle of the night. they don't have to fumble around for a light switch. I incorporated a recessed shelfin the shower that can beilluminated. too. but this also means there's no need for baskets or bottles on the floor, cluttering things up and causing a hip hazard.’ The couple were keen to add some colour to the space where they could. A combination of green iridescent mosaic tiles and m a t t grey large-format tiles add depth and texture to the overall look, in an otherwise simple scheme. ‘Gavin and Sally were delighted with the finished room,’ recalls Lisa. ‘lt's given them everything that they wanted.

Clever screen Rel-up shutters are great for hiding appliances a n d they don‘t protrude when open. Try adding a tcmbour door to an existing unit with a ktt. from £209.06 for a tall unit. Lark a n d Late (0845 017

acomfortable home and a networking space when required.' As an architect himself and fan of Bulthaup kitchens, Alex had plenty of ideas about how he imagined the room would be used and its design. with a large central island and a suite of professional appliances by Electrolux Grand Cuisine, including a blast chiller, two combination ovens and ‐ unusually ‐ a vacuum sealer for sous-vide cooking.

'Ihat's our favourite appliance now,’ says Alex. ‘We cook with it a lot. We also use the sear hob m o s t days. It’s especially good for big Sunday breakfasts with lots of

friends and children round ‐ we can easily make eggs and bacon for 18, if we need to.’ Most of the cooking equipment has been centred on the 5.5m island. which combines aworksurface with abreakfast bar for the children to sit at when Alex and Susanna are busy preparing meals. Designed to look asif it's floating, it serves asa contemporary piece of furniture as well asamultipurpose hub. ‘I’m pleased with the function and the form of the design.’ states Astridge. ‘I had to ensure that the kitchen worked ergonomically as well asaesthetically. As it was a

family home, we didn‘t want it to look t o o sterile.’ Storage was high on Susanna's wish list, soAstridge designed tall units to maximise space for pans, crockery and food. Simple good looks mask how much planning went into this room. 'Ihe finished design seamlessly integrates hi-tech appliances to cater for a crowd with a sensible layout for everyday use. ‘Alex and Susanna have been using their new space for about six months and it's proved how well it works,‘ says Astridge. 'Ihe kitchen is efficient and practical, but it’s also ahappy place to be.’ m

"lhen we built a vanity unit with a stone top, matching splashback and inset basins. with taps mounted above to help maintain a sleek look' While many bathrooms have only asmall medicine cabinet, Genda decided that this one required a larger statement piece, both to boost the a m o u n t o f space for items t o b e put away and to up light levels in the

achieved by a design that runs the full width ot’a wall,

room. 'lhis was

incorporating three doors along with subtle but essential extra illumination on the mirrors.

’Ihis solution really stands o u t and makes the r o o m appear larger than it is,‘ says Genda. ‘I also ensured there was plentiful space in both the vanity cabinet and mirrored cupboards.‘ Janet and Simon decided to keep the existing wall and floor tiles. which were power cleaned to bring them back to life, and also provided the inspiration for the colour of the bespoke pieces. ‘I added a metallic paint finish to the fumirure that l colour-matched to co-ordinate with the wall tiles to create a feature,‘

recalls Genda. The resulting scheme has created a smart look that gives Janet and Simon acres of useful, accessible shelves and drawers. 'Handleless cabinetry works really hard here and the dividers inside the drawers make sure that it's always easy to find what you need,‘ says Genda. ‘Janet and Simon ended up with almost completely new, contemporary bathroom fittings without a major refurbishment. This was more of athoughtful and creative update with remodelling at a fraction of the cost that a full refit would have been. We turned an awkward m o m into one with storage galore.'

aperfect choice, soI picked one with a gold lining to emit a w a r m glow over the island and breakfast bar, and it stands asa strong central ti:ature.' Vv'ilson also thought the fireplace required an overhaul to prevent it fading into the background. so she replaced its surround with a bespoke honed Nero Marquina marble version, which both draws the eye and chimes with the dining table. Working closely with Kitchen Architecture. \‘Vilson designed a scheme that complements the space while being practical. 'lhe cooking area needed a large island to house a gas hob and downdraft extractor: was

sajm Wilson. ‘However. asthey also wanted some casual seating in this area, I specified abreakfast bar to allow for socialising here aswell.' This unit has been made from ultra‑ durahle charcoal laminate to ensure a sleek, low-maintenance, contemporary look, while a tall bank of graphite oak cabinets blends beautifully with the touches ol'hronze in the island legs and contrasts with the C arrara marble. Adjacent to this is a r o w of base cupboards to provide a clear run of worlaop and aw e t area. 'lhe sink is in a bespoke piece that‘s more furniture than titted joinery; explains Wilson.

The clients were thrilled with the final design,' she smiles. 'lhis glamorous reception room finally has the kitchen it deserves.‘ JANUARY 20l7 “ M D E S I G N S 111

Brutto drew up plans for a large central island that incorporated the couple's must-have Rangemaster range cooker, with t w o banks of cabinetry behind and to the side of it. 'The family wanted a kitchen with a bold look, but one that would stand the test of time,‘ heexplains. They asked myopinion on a number of matters to double-check their choices would n o t clash with the kitchen design. This also made the second stage of designing the entertainment units far simpler, as we knew the style the clients liked and we could integrate the whole space with colours and finishes that worked well together.' While the island is made from luscious. glossy. deep‐blue units with amatching run behind, the kitchen also includes a bank of

m e d white cabinetry that wraps around Miele ovens and a wine cooler, but is visually unobtrusive. Another element that the couple wanted was for the kitchen to connect neamleulywith the outdoor area, sothey could enjoy the views and make sure that their t w o children would be in view at all times when playing outside. The couple opted for a ceiling extractor, sotheir view to the garden wouldn't be obscured, but fitting it wasn't a straightfomard operation. 'l-‘rnding a route for the cxtractor's duct was achallenge, asit m e a n t a number of alterations had to be made to beams andjoists, and an additional m o t o r had to be fitted to achieve the maximum extraction,‘ Brutto recalls. The design was restricted by the ceiling heights,

which were a little on the low side

forwchalargespaoe.sowecreated adropped ceiling over the island. This achieved a number of things: it houses the extractor fan and makes the island feel asthough it’s in its o w n space, phrs it creates the illusion that the rest of the ceiling heights are higher than they actually are.’ Once the kitchen was finished, it naturally became the hub of the Davolis' home. ‘lt's where the Family congregates, whether for a quick breakfast. an afternoon cup of coffee or cooking a large Sunday roast. Tanya and Eugenio love the space and whenever I go back, we always sit there to talk about design. have a coffee and catch up. We’ve created a bold look, but it's one that I believe will work for them for many years to come,’ says Brutto.m DECEMBER 2016 “ D E S I G N S 123

shower wall, shower floor, shower ceiling and canopy.’ Keen to prevent the space from feeling cliniul, Drummond also created Mondrian-esque min'm' panels on one wall with a Corian framework.

Aswellasmakingtheroombrighter, they break up the blocks ofwhite and help to conceal the pipework. Thinner sections of 6mm Corian were used to create backlit panels, which add further ambienee without dominating the overall aesthetic. In keepingwith the linear look, Drummond designed a large bath with aninterlocking vanity unit as the main feature of the room. The bath is huge, but it doesn't look


bulky because of the simplicity of the design and the smooth, mart-white finish of the material,’ he says. It's complemented by mart-black taps, echoing the fitfings in the walk-in shower opposite, which was built into adramatic section of CurVedwall‐theCorian usedwas templated carefiilly and fitted on site. ‘It's this attention to detail that produces such an immaculate and special result,‘ says Drummond. ‘Corian was the key to this design. It enabled usto produce an impressive bathtub with a seamless surround and join-free double basin area. Both the client and I were delighted with the result.’ GD DECEMBER 2016 M D E S I G N S 131

fter years of looking for the perfect ski-resort second home. Serena and ) i m Coulton finally found one ‐ before it _ had even been built. ‘We'd been going .to the same Austrian village for years and hadviewed numerous properties there.’ says Serena. ‘But they :allfelt like they needed a lot of maintenance and we weren't going to be there all the time. Then o u r estate agent rangand told usabout a new development ‐ and that night webought the penthouse.’ The apartment ticked all the boxes for the couple, who have t w o daughters aged 12and 10. and whose main home is in Hampshire. ‘ I t gave usmuch more , freedom because if anythingw e n t wrong, there's a fantastic caretaker and building manager.’ explains ' Serena. ‘We can just lock it up and leave.’ ‘ Buildingwork began in 2013. which coincided Vwith the couple finishing the construction of their , Regency‐style home in the U K , meaning that they i needed to keep track of both properties. Serena and Jim called on Tor Vivian. aninterior designer and .»friend. to help them manage costs for decorating the apartment and putting their own stamp on it. .-‘We had t w o sources of inspiration,‘ explains Serena. “Acosy hotel nearby we'd stayed in a few times had ; abig influence on how wewanted our place to look. 1Wealso love Kit Kemp's hotels. and the way she 7mixes colours and fabrics. I like pieces that clash . because it makes a scheme more interesting. Tor was great at finding affordable versions of fabrics i liked.‘ One feature that impacted on the design of the . penthouse was its steeply pitched ceiling. 'We weren't

The sociable, open‐plan layout lends itselfwell to entertaining. and the Coultons often have friends over tostay. Serena loves cooking for acrowd. which she admits can bechallengingat times. ‘When you're in the mountains. you won't always find the ingredients that you were hoping for.’ she says. ‘So you have to think on your feet andgo with what's there.’ While the family bought the property asa place to stay when skiing, they often visit during the warmer months. too. and go walking in the mountains. ‘This is o u r cscape.’ says Serena. ‘The time wespend here isprecious because the children are growing up so quickly O u r apartment is o u r sanctuary e it's a very happy place to be.’ .

Practical points Fitting anen suite rarely needs planning permission, but is likely to require Building Regulations approval to ensure that any wiring, windows, ventilation and drainage comply. Some tradespeople can self-certify their work ‐ check the competent persons register (,uk; Plumbing is the main consideration; check how easy it is to re‐route supply and waste pipework. Ideally, the soil pipe will be nearby so that waste w a t e r can be taken away easily. If the existing boiler is a long way from your en suite or it doesn't have the capacity to feed an extra bathroom, you may need an additional hot water supply. ‘Consider the structure of your walls,’ _, NOVEMBER 2016 M D E S l G N S 139

Aswellasusingapaletteofstorrny min-ails, Bates was keen to include texture and met-allies to add interest and highlight

keyareasofthe room. Mosaictileswith a subtle shimmer cover one wall ofthe walk-in shower; the floor is covered with large-(brunt, dark grey tiles with minimal grout lines that help to make the space seembigger.

IDEA TO STEAL kitchen that would be within the family's budget, m o s t of which had been given over to building the extension. “Ihe clients had an idea of what they wanted. but they certainly looked to usfor inspiration.’ he recalls. 'Ihere were some features they were happy to swap to avoid overspending and others were must-haves. For example, they didn't w a n t to compromise on the Carrara marble splashback and instead c u t back on the specification of the appliances. substituting some very high-end products with a more affordable brand.’ Proving that good design doesn’t always have to blow the budget, Munro came up with some clever features to make the kitchen

feel asmodern and seamless aspossible. As well asintroducing some statement timber veneer to draw the eye towards the island, he also disguised the door that leads to the hallway. ‘Having a prominent door would have mined the look of a long r u n of tall units. Instead, it’s clad in the same white m a r t lacquer asthe cupboards. making it virtually invisible,v says Munro. After months of emails and phone calls, the family finally moved into their newly extended home and immediately fell in love with the kitchen. They were very happy with the final result,’ reveals Munro. ‘Dcspite having to keep an eye on costs, this kitchen feels luxurious and stylish.' GD

Reducing noise

» Preventing elements from being directly attached to walls and floors is a good way to reduce sound in a building with multiple storeys. Wall-hung sanitaryware tends to be more eifective at reducing structure borne sound as it's not directly connected to the iioor.

powerful showers ~ do I n e e d it? Upgrading to a larger boiler can be great for water pressure, but you may n o t require one. Relocating the boiler closer to the bathroom can produce the same results. Water pressure is based on the incoming pressure to your home rather than what appliance you buy,’ says Melanie Clear, founder and director of Clear Architects (020 8502 5585; ‘Before you start renovating, check the pressure, because if you w a n t apowerful shower you may require a pump instead. It's possible to have new mains installed but check with your supplier to see ifthis would improve the pressure. However, if you are increasing the number of bathrooms in your house, you may w a n t to change to a combi boiler to provide instant hot water, rather than relying on a tank or on apressurised system for larger homes.’

My h o m e has l o w water pressure ‐ is there anything I c a n do to boast it? Gravity-fed water systems are usually the main reason for low pressure and the solution is either to install a w a t e r pump to boost the pressure or replace the system with a combi boiler or apressurised system to

increase the flow rate. ‘One of the most common issues is identifying the type of

Versatileseating . .

hen young couple Joanna and George Pattinson first approached interior designer Laura Sole, their bathroom was distinctly gloomy, despite being a large room with natural daylight. 'Ihey had t w o small children and this bathroom was to be their personal sanctuary,‘ says Sole. ‘My brief was to create aluxurious scheme with a calming, spa-like feel. Joanna's only stipulations were that she wanted apendant light over the bath and that she didn't want the vanity unit to dominate the room like the last one had.’ The bathroom's generous proportions gave Sole the opportunity to zone the layout to give it more structure. To create a focal point, I designed afull-height wall that was clad in abeautiful smoked oak and positioned the large stone bath in front,’ she explains. Then I designed t w o separate rooms behind the wall for the shower and the WC to keep these private from the main area. It was important to ensure the vanity unit was asclean-lined and elegant aspossible, even though it was vast at 3.5m. I did this bykeeping the drawers quite shallow, with a bespoke mirror to enhance the sense of space. A concealed cupboard behind the lacquered wall panelling in the WC area gives added storage, plus this also made a good home for the shower's pipework ‐ it was important to make these panels removable in case access was needed.’ While m o s t elements of the project w e n t smoothly, a few unexpected issues needed to be dealt with along the way. ‘We uncovered

an old chimney hearth section with trimmed joists under the area where wewere installing the bath,’ Sole says. We needed to remove the hearth, install full-length joists and then reinforce the joists under the tub to support its weight. We also discovered that we needed to cut out the existing underfloor heating and replace it to fit the new layout.' Good fighting was important to Joanna and George, so, to create more impact, Sole used a john Cullen Grafik Eye pre-set scene control system that allowed more than four circuits, meaning each ‘scene' could be set at the touch of a button. To create atmosphere, I designed the lighting in layers (task lighting, low-level lighting and mood lighting).There are scenes for daytime, evening and bath time, including downlights, wall lights. a pendant, back-lit glass panels and low-level LED lighting,’ Sole says. ‘I used a lot of recycled glass for the project-itdads thewallsintheWC and shower areas and, because it’s backlit, it creates abeautiful softening effect. I used the same glass inset within the sliding doors that lead to the walk-in dressing room and giass

Surfaces One of the biggest industry changes can be seen in the worktops, flooring and splashbacks

that frame classic-style cabinetry. Traditional materials such as marble and stone have been reinterpreted in slimline thicknesses, as composite and laminate replicas. or combined with contemporary surfaces like stainless steel or ceramic. ‘Subdued colours and natural finishes are key, particularly for the worksurface asa focal point of the room.‘ says David Beckett, sales director at Caesarstone (01706 863 600; 'Ihis is one of the reasons why we are seeing such a high demand for marble-effect worktops, asthey never go o u t of fashion and blend well with glass, timber and neutral fumiture.‘ Splashbacks. t o o , are increasingly made from simple yet effective materials, including m e t r o tiles and mirrored glass. Natural stone floors have been a feature of kitchens for centuries, so can easily enhance a timeless feel. Many stone-effect tiles are

available that are lower maintenance, but a classic material such aslimestone will age beautifully and look good for years.

Appliances It’s important to consider appliances in t e r m s of aesthetics aswell asfunctionality. Whether you're choosing sleek. integrated solutions or statement equipment with enduring appeal, striking the right balance is key. For example, some styles of extractors can date kitchens if they adhere t o o closely to a trend, but hidden canopy extractors or downdrafts will eliminate the issue. Flush-fitting appliances, or those finished in complementary colours such asgrey and white. can be eased gently into a scheme. And consider selecting all your kit from one brand, so handles line up and fascias match. Banking is another way to help appliances appear less dominant, and will also optimise space and create a pleasing symmetrical look. ‘It‘s no surprise that the popularity of the induction ‐)

Designinga layout that will last )> Even slmple schemes can start to feel dated it the layout iscomplicated or hard to use, For example, banking ovens in tall cablnetry looks great. but always have a worktop nearby where y o u can rest hot dishes. )) ‘Kltchens with limited space should have simpler layouts to ensure the overall look isuncluttered.‘ says Daniele Bmtto, co‐founder of HUD Kitchens (020 7924 2285; hubkltchenscom).

)) ‘Deslgns that conceal the d a y - t o d a y running o f a kitchen are becoming popular, allowing people to l e a v e tasks for later.' adds Brutto. ‘Try extra storage or worktops that cover sinks a n d workspaces.’ w o u n d s

AnnaALisa Smith (pictured right)

ac o n t e m p o r a r y textile designer

There's a distinctly European feel to Anna-Lisa’s designs, thanks to her years living in Italy and Paris before settling in Yorkshire. After studying for an MA in textile design, specialising in weave, at the University of Derby, she launched her self-titled textile business in 20l4. Anna-Lisa's products are designed and hand-finished in her studio, with the fabric woven in local mills using lambswool. Her work is currently sold by large retailers as well asin independent design shops. ‘My l r o collection, which means colour in Japanese, was initially inspired by the woven textiles

of Bauhaus weaver ( J u n t a Stolzi. She often used lines in her textiles and I‘ve always been drawn her work. From this point, I spent time trying various combinations of lines in different sizes and strengths until I was happy with the balance of the design. I was looking for a striking simplicity that would work well with colour to create a clean, elegant look. l r o is inspired by the great textile designers of the past but it is also aconbemporary collection for modern homes.‘ Anna‐Lisa’s l r o collection is going on sale at Liberty London this autumn, after her designs were selected from thousands to be p a r t of their AW16 collection. She is also going to be exhibiting at design-junction 20l6. Findo u t more at anna‐ >

New season colours

Pantone’s AW16 colour report predicts that it’s time to embrace blue as a key colour in your home this season. Airy Blue, evoking post‐downpour skies, sits alongside pops of

pink and red, and the autumnal Spicy Mustard and Potter’s Clay. Taking precedence is Riverside,an inky blue shade that perfectly partners the grey in the palette ‐ Sharkskin. >

‘ New Craftsmen creates the most original showcase whether it's exhibiting at A r t Basel in Switzerland, at its own showroom or at Decorex (Crafthouse roomsets). . l‘m always interested to see what it does next. I think Christine Van Der Hurd is one of the best with colour and its uses on fabrics and carpets. I like to commission her for one‐off carpets and k i l i m s . I'm looking forward to her talk with pleasure (September 18). Nina Campbell's talk will be fun and instructive (September 20) as she's the wittiest person

ideas. I'm a fan of Fiona McDon ald (A50). so I look forward to seeing her British-made furniture. Cox London (1330) delights with i t s handmade furniture and light fi t t i n g s ‐ I often recommend them to interior designers. I can't wait to see Ochre's (B32) Mirage pendant lights and chairs, which Iwould love in my dining room. Martin Huxford Studio (D18) has wonderful Modernist-inspired lighting, but Julian Chichester (E33) has an eclectic range. Tigermoth Lighting’s ( B 4 3 ) handmade light fittings are also ones to look out for ’

Bedroom T'S t i m e to rethink gold. Once eschewed by tastemakers far and wide, the resurgence of metallics has seen a softer, more refined gold come to the fore, along with the warm gleam of antique brass and bronze. Used in this lighter form, i t s subtle shimmer easily passes as a neutral, making it ideal for a calm bedroom. Acresof flat colour can be overwhelming, so complement pale gold with animated pattern. Traditional motifs of u n f u r l i n g vines, trailing foliage and delicate florals work well, as will abstract p r i n t s that draw on the natural world. Finish with soothing shades of oatmeal, ecru, mahogany and umber-brown timber for the perfect blend of glow and glamour.

‘ Thefeaturejoinery wall is afabulous backdrop to the walk-in wet room 9 $1

toiletry items, while space behind the mirrors is accessedvia a gentle touch. Additional pipework is concealed below raised flooring, creating a modern, light look. The focal point ofthe room is the large walk-in shower, with its smoked glass screen that sits n e x t to a Curved freestanding bath onanelevated platform. These elements serve to draw the eye into the centre of the room. Although the bathroom already had plenty of natural illumination from the windows, additional lighting has been cleverly used to emphasise features and set the mood Bright lights have been installed around the mirrors for everyday use, alongside softer LEDs elsewhere ‘James and Wendy loved the finished result,’ says Genda. "The feature joinery wall creates afabulous backdrop to the walkein w e t r o o m . They were delighted with the attention to detail and planning that w e n t into the project, plus the fact that we managed to keep it all within their budgett' GD

The beauty of a steam-generator i r o n is t h e powerful. continuous steam it creates through the separate water tank ‐ visit t h e biog to see my favourite models

From smarter steam to scale-free soleplates, here's everything you need to know about straightening out your weekly wash



ASSESS YOUR IRONING PILE If you tackle bed linens or a large laundry heap in one go. a steam generator is a good bet. while little-and‑ oflen ironers will find a nimble steam model more convenient. The fabrics you iron will also make a difference to your choice ‐ a design

with high-pressure steam will loosen the fibres to help smooth cottons and thick textiles with deep creases. while delicate materials will benefit from an iron with fabric settings or automatically adjusting temperatures



Ironing for long periods

Once you’ve chosen a type of iron, check Out its spec. Some are suitable for vertical

can be tiresome, so factor that into your search. Standard steam irons are mostly light. compact and easy to store. and you can get cordless models. Steam generators produce more steam for longer, and won‘t need refilling as often as steam irons. As their water tanks are in a seperate heavy base. the iron itself is lighter. Compact steam generators look like steam irons. but are bulkier due to an internal pump. They need refilling the most.

ironing. so you can freshen up hung clothes or curtains, and most will have an auto shut‑ off function. lt's worth looking for a scratch‑ resistant, tapered soleplate that won't catch on fastenings and a handle that feels comfortable when you grip it, especially if you iron for long periods of time. Easy-fill tanks with wide holes and clear maximum markings will make refilling simple.

PICK YOUR POWER The amount of steam an iron produces

(measured in grams ‑ per minute) is a major factor in how well it performs. For standard irons. look for a high steam-shot power alongside its regular output. For steam generators, check if it's non~pressurised. which works in a similar way to steam irons, or pressurised. which pushes steam d e e p into fabrics. A model with a high wattage is worth adding to your shopping list. too ‐ it allows your iron to heat up more quickly.

LOSE THE LIMESCALE Your iron will need regular maintenance to prevent calcium deposits building up in the soleplate. especially if you live

in a hard-water area. Look for models with

descaling or self‑ cleaning programmes.

or you may have to manually descale them. Most irons come with a built-in limescale or anticalc filter that's removed and cleaned periodically. while steam generators have anti-scale cartridges that will need replacing

over the iron's lifetime.

Projects Bathrooms

roviding more floor area than most first-floor schemes,a loft conversion is an ideal location for a bathroom. However, when the Smith family bought a cosy farmhouse, they found that their loft bathroom was dated and cramped. Keen to maximise the six square‐metre room, they turned to Ripples for a complete remodel. The first thing their designer suggested was to replace the bath with a shower, instantly creating space for additional elements. The sloped ceiling m e a n t that there was only one area where the shower could be placed, soabespoke solution was required. 'Ihe shower tray has been concealed in the floor, creating a seamless,walk‐in layout and retaining asmuch ceiling height aspossible,‘ comments Leanne Robcy, designer at Ripples. ‘By running the same floor tiles into the w e t area, it helps to make the space feel bigger. A feature wall gives the r o o m a w o w factor and creates a focal point. It’s finished with bespoke glass panels that protect against w a t e r splashes., A tiled seat has been built into the shower room under the sloping ceiling. ‘It's agreat use of space,’ explains Robey. ‘Not only can it be used asasurface for sitting on or putfing down bottles, it’s created a home for e x t r a lighting with a backlit recessed shelfabove.’ Timeless, neutral colours and large-format tiles create a seamless finish that makes the space feel bigger; a large illuminated mirror over the basin amplifies the effect, reflecting the daylight that comes in from the room's only window. ‘It’s important to think carefully about lighting, especially in areas where it is n o t possible to recess spotlights,’ advises Robey. Wall lighting, LED strips and feature marker lights will help, along with extra lighting in drawers and around a mirror.’ Headroom around the washbasin and WC is an important consideration in a small bathroom with low ceiling heights like this one. ‘ I fyou are concealing the cistern, it is possibleto bring the boxing forward, which will in t u r n push the WC forward to an area where there is more standing height,‘ Robey explains. This technique has been used to great effect in the Smith family’s bathroom, while choosing awall-hung design has preservedvisible floor space to make the room look larger. 2 ’Ihe Smiths are absolutely delighted with g their bathroom,’ says Colin Payne, o w n e r of E the Ripples showroom in Tunbridge Wells, é which designed this bathroom. "Ihe o u t c o m e 3 is even better than they had expected.’ G)

The idea

MW host

This flexible barbecue

station can be eoslty repositioned in your garden a n d

double up as

cook. This will help you decide how much grill area and workspace you'll need. ‘Ask yourself ifyou'll be grilling or roasting, too, or if you'd like to make stone-baked pizza and breads,’ saysJeremy Sharples,owner of Kitchen in the Garden at Cedar Nursery (01932 862 473; ‘For larger roasts, it's better to get grills with three or more burners or, if you're going for charcoal, a grill area that allows the coals to be separated. For the more adventurous cook who wants flexibility, consider a kamado, aJapanese-styleclay oven that can cook pizza and slow roasts. For keen entertainers, a Le Panyol wood-fired oven can cook up to 40 pizzas an hour.'

Once limited to stainless steel, designs are n o w available in timber and composites such asCorian or Dekton. Check that the materials you w a n t to use are suitable for

outdoor use ‐ they need to beUV‐stable, durable, flame-proof and frost‐proof. Even if your design is mainly steel, accompanying building work can be personalised using render, brick, s t o n e or timber cladding. Where possible, ensure your design complements its surroundings and works for the way you cook For example, there may be less need to design it like an indoor kitchen, so you could house a pizza oven separately from the grill if you only tend to use one at a time or the oven doubles up asheating. Similarly, do you like to face guests and have somewhere for them to sit asyou cook, or would you prefer a self-contained unit away from the seating area? ‘It's best to call in professional help, asa designer can advise on ventilation, location and material selections, aswell as what utilities, such asplumbing, gas or electrics, may need to be extended,’ says a

A t o p and sink are smart additions to on outdoor kitchen. However. this c a n involve digging up the garden to l a y pipes. as well as issues with supply trenches o n d grey‐water disposal.

Ann Boordmon. marketing manager or Sonlflo UK(020 8342 (1333:, suggests using mocerotors a n d pumps. ‘This means you can p l a c e your wet area anywhere a water supply c a n r e a c h , avoiding costly a n d messy excavation works.’

For h o t running water. install on under-sink instant water heater. so washing up cm be d o n e in situ.

They are split by sliding glass doors that stack against the internal wall of the studio, opening up to allow the room to work asone. As the kitchen is exposed to English winters, it is vital that all its components are durable and weatherproof. To this end, the kitchen's cabinets havebeen constructed from marine plywood and Richlite panels, a non-porous paper and resin composite, while the Corian solid surface on top is resistant to the freeze‐thaw effect that can often crack and weather materials outside. The kitchen is finished with abuilt-in barbecue made from robust stainless steel. Built under permitted development, the construction of the pavilion took four months.

Contemporary bathroom, south London

Houzz is much more than beautiful pictures – it’s the 21st century way to design your home

As more people are doing their research online when looking for a kitchen or bathroom, design platforms such as Houzz UK and Ireland have become indispensable as a source for KBB businesses. Managing director Andrew Small tells Rachel Ogden how a small community grew into the success story of today, why retailers should be part of it and its plans for the future

anaging director Andrew Small wants to make one thing clear. Houzz UK and Ireland is free to use. No catches, no fees – it’s not even freemium. Which is a strange thing in a digital world, where the slickest apps and online offerings seem to focus on premium content, upgrades and packages. However, it’s a strategy that has worked well for the company so far. A far cry from the modest website founded by a husband-and-wife team to help them renovate their home in 2009, Houzz in the US is the biggest online residential renovation and design community in the world. With 40 million people visiting the site every month, it’s a key player in the $300 billion (£226bn) home design and remodelling market. Around two years ago, following a realisation that 30% of Houzz’s traffic was from outside the US, the company expanded internationally and Houzz UK and Ireland was born. Created to give a ‘local’ experience, where the businesses that visitors discovered could be in Birmingham in the Midlands or Birmingham, Alabama, the platform has seen rapid uptake from its launch, growing from around 10,000 active design professionals to more than 40,000 today. It currently covers 60 categories of design professional, with kitchen and bathroom businesses, designers and fitters making up about 10% of the active companies. With more than nine-and-a-half million high-quality images uploaded by its design professionals and more than two million visitors every month, it’s clear that Houzz UK is more than yet another social media platform. Small joined Houzz UK just over a year ago and has since been a large part of its growth. Yet, with a background in finance and consulting, it’s his first foray into the world of design. However, he’s fluent in what makes Houzz UK such an important platform for KBB businesses. “In the old world, as it were, it’s a challenge to source new clients, or your clients

typically come through word-of-mouth referrals, particularly for smaller businesses. There are limited marketing tools available that are effective and measurable and even collaborating with current clients can be a challenge,” he explains. “If you’re a kitchen or bathroom design business, and you want to showcase the work that you’ve done, Houzz is an elegant and simple platform to do so.You create a free profile, share your work, engage with the community in discussion threads, where homeowners are seeking advice and use ‘Ideabooks’ to collaborate visually with your client base. It’s about putting your work in front of a very large, engaged audience who are browsing Houzz with real intent.”

Community As well as creating a profile, Houzz UK offers a host of functionality you might not expect to find for free. “There are great tools, such as Sketch, a collaboration feature, and Site Designer,” says Small. “So if you’re a small business and your website is a bit outdated, or isn’t mobile-responsive, or you don’t yet have a website, you can create a website on Houzz. It takes content directly from your profile and is hosted on Houzz, but it looks like your website and you can choose from a range of different templates and customise it. “We talk to professionals all the time and they often ask what the catch is, if they’re getting all of this functionality for free.The answer is that the professionals bring so much fantastic content, which creates our community of 40 million visitors, so we want them to share their work. We provide tools that work for them, because that’s the reason homeowners come to Houzz.” Which brings the conversation round to images of past projects – essentially, what pops up when homeowners search for kitchen companies in Carlisle or bathroom showrooms in Surbiton.Whether for reasons of client privacy or simply a stretched marketing budget, some companies lack photography of their work – is it still worth them being part of Houzz UK? Small believes the answer is a resounding yes. “Even if you don’t yet have a significant visual portfolio, by being on Houzz UK, you’re still participating in the discussion on a topic that you care about. There’s tons of stuff that professionals can be doing, even without having that broad body of work. Just starting to use Houzz as a collaboration tool, to work with clients and to see their Ideabooks and the things that they’re thinking when you’re engaging with them at an early stage in a project, can be really useful,” he asserts. “That said, we would still recommend that companies invest ❱❱ August 2016 · kbbreview · 35

On average, people on Houzz are spending £18,000 on major renovations on kitchens. The same survey noted that 91% of homeowners are enlisting professional help for their large-scope kitchen project

in photography. When homeowners search, what’s going on is that Houzz is algorithmically serving up images at the top of that photo stream that the community are engaging with. It’s not about whether they are or aren’t good quality or pretty, it’s about whether users on Houzz are commenting on them. However, it’s worth spending a few hundred pounds building even just a small portfolio of images of work when engaging with a very visual platform. We frequently run workshops and events with professionals and that’s a key message that we hope people take from those sessions.” Of course, it’s not just photography that can elevate your business in search results, but Houzz’s ancillary offering of advertising, which enables you to pay to get an enhanced level of exposure, as Small explains. “Where Houzz has the opportunity to make money is by selectively offering some design businesses the chance to get more exposure in a specific geography and in specific categories,” he says.“So I’d use it, for example, if I was a design business based in west London, and I wanted people in west London to be consistently seeing my work and my profile on Houzz.” Beyond images,another good reason for KBB businesses to be on Houzz,according to Small, is client feedback.“We have quite a lot of data about what homeowners are saying and doing and what we do know is that the most important criterion when hiring a professional is reviews,” he explains. “You can be a professional with a modest portfolio of images, but you can still have a word-of-mouth referral network of clients that you’ve done great work with and where you didn’t maybe invest in

HOW HOUZZ UK WORKED FOR US… l Diane Berry, Diane Berry Kitchens, Manchester “We are regularly contacted by people who have seen us on Houzz and it is very interesting to see what people are asking about. Often it will be about light fittings or bar stools, or colours we have used, but now and again comes a gem: a person saying ‘Love your work, will you do my kitchen?’. “It is such a dream, as this is a free lead, and the people have always done their research, so they know who we are, what we do, and why we are as good as we are, as they use the web to make sure they have read everything they possibly can about us before they make the call. “We have already sold over £50,000 of work through Houzz and in the next few weeks hope to add another kitchen order to this.”

l Jamie Blake, Blakes London “The first point of contact with my clients is referring them to Houzz. I get them to share Ideabooks with me and then we start from there. Houzz is a very knowledgeable resource and it makes my job a lot easier.”

l Kia Stanford, Kia Designs, London “Houzz is a fantastic resource for interior designers, it allows us to get to know our clients’ tastes quickly and easily when embarking on a project with them. We have had several clients come through the site this year.”

professional photography at the time. Now you can ask those clients via Houzz to submit a review about your business and your services that’ll improve the authority of your professional profile, raise your ranking within our service directory and increase the relevance and authority of the images that you’ve uploaded. It’s not just about having tons and tons of great images – that’s not the goal here. It’s about ensuring that your clients are reviewing the great work that you’ve already done – Houzz is much more than just beautiful pictures.” While the feel of Houzz UK is clean and easy to use, Small also wants to make it clear that it’s by no means only catering for one section of the market.“We have a very broad homeowner audience, working on all kinds of renovation projects, from the very smallest of spaces to very large budgets and hundreds of thousands of pounds,” he reveals.“To bring that to life, one of the themes that we often see people talking about is small space living solutions, innovative pantry cupboards, narrow hallways and utility rooms with the ability to maximise the space.Those discussion threads are the things that get the most engagement from the community.”

Surveys It’s not just watching conversations that informs Houzz UK about what homeowners are up to, but also its surveys and reports – a key resource that helps design professionals understand who the platform’s users are and can be accessed by anyone []. “What we know from our Houzz & Home data is that of those who are actively renovating, or are planning to in the next 12 months, one-in-10 are looking at an entire home project,” says Small.“The living room and the kitchen are the most popular areas to target, with 27% focused on the latter.The kitchen is the room where people are spending the most money. On average, people on Houzz are spending £18,000 on major renovations on kitchens that were over 150sq ft and on average £9,000 for major renovations on kitchens that were less than 150sq ft. We’ve seen, from the kitchen study that we ran last year, the emergence of the super-kitchen, with people often opening it up to other living areas and outside.” The same survey also noted that 91% of homeowners are enlisting professional help for their large-scope kitchen project and more than half of homeowners are budgeting up to £25,000 for renovations. Looking forward to the future, there are some features of Houzz that are yet to make it over to the UK, such as the product marketplace, where it’s possible to buy items that have been tagged in images, generating commercial revenue. For now, Small is more focused on building the community and supporting the design professionals who use the platform in the UK. “We want to continue creating a great product for the UK market, enabling homeowners to have an end-to-end solution that supports them through the design journey,’ says Small. “We talk about Houzz as being the 21st-century way to design your home, so there’s a large opportunity there, and an equally large opportunity in Europe and Asia and the business is growing quickly in those territories. Our mission is creating the best possible experience for home design – removing the barriers between homeowners and designers, and between professionals and their potential clients. In the UK, it’s still early days, but it will kbbr be exciting to see how that continues over the next couple of years.’

versatile monochrome print and adding ascalloped or shaped hem with delicate beading. By using living room-style details, it helps tie a kitchen area into the r e s t of anopen-plan space.

BARKER& BARKER I Choosing the right style of curtain will depend on various factors, includingwindow size, room size, andthe look you’re creating. I Small windows with only a narrow space either side may benefit from a triple-pleat heading asa dress curtain, complemented with a Roman blind. I Bigger windows that require more fullness in the curtains would look good with a single-pleat heading, allowing larger quantities of fabric to stack back easily, creating a more modern feel. I Usinga triple-pleat headingcreates atraditional look,whilea gathered headingwill have m o r e of a casual feel. Curtains appear better if they are lined and interlined, and will last longer. I in a busy room, a plain fabric that matches the existing colour scheme will help the curtains blend; in a simpler room, aco‐ordinating colour and pattern might help to liven up the space.

In the frame Borders are a smart way to customise your curtains, either just on the leadingedge or all the way around, outlining each panel. Choose a contrasting colour ‐ such asa w a r m red , to create a show-stopping look. then combine with an unfussy pole and pared-back pencil pleat to ensure the attention remains on the fabric and trim. > Linen Holmewood curtains in Blue. £69 p e r m. with edging in Ava cotton fabric in Tomato. £32 p e r m, Jane Churchill at Colefax & Fowler

Rather than covering up gadgets, look for appliances that visually merge into the space. While some can beintegrated behind a door from, it's animpractical choice for an oven, so the latest models tend to be as unobtnisive aspossible. Handleless designs. with flush touchscreens, or finished in colours to match units, will help your kitchen feel less utilitarian.

Including cabinetry that is less kitchen‑ led on the living-space side of an island or peninsula can beagreat way of blending zones. ‘Open shelves storing books or decorative pieces can smooth the transition between kitchen and living,’ suggests Charlie Flcmons, designer at Sustainable Kitchens (0117 961 6471; Freestanding shelving also works well asa subtle divider.

Many furniture ranges n o w include fitted pieces for other areas of the room, such asTV cabinets or benches, allowing for a continuous finish or a subtle mix of shades across a kitchen‐living space. The handleless look works best, but if you like handles, use the same throughout to keep a unified look.

For the parts of your kitchen always on show, retractable elements keep the look sleek. One-touch downdraft extractors that disappear to sit flush with the worktop after use are very effective, while S‐Box‘s kinetic pop-ups can store everything from knives to spice racks (0845 486 8000‘, ‘Even taps can retract fully into the sink and sockets submerge beneath the worktop,‘ says Tamara Tymovski, designer at Sybaris Interiors (020 7460 6560, sybarisdesignxom). ‐) JULY 2018 GRAMDESIGNS 107

A wail of built-in shelving acts as a neat display space while also creating a focal point


to mbrandrnatchsizesanddepths to choose the best combination for your bathroom. A made-to‐measue solution is worth considering for an awkward or compact space.

What's its purpose?

, ‘ b

I - r

Look for storage that has a clear role. Think about what irritates you most about your Current bathroom. a n d plan to eliminate it. it used towels and laundry are always on display, for example, an inbuilt tilting basket couldbeagoodidea.’ says Wayne D a n c e , MD at int-louse (01661 842 304; l n h o u s e l t d c o u k ) .

How do you ensure it still looks sleek?

Style it right Think about how the appearance of pieces can help to achieve aclutter-free look. Wall-hung sanitaryware will keep asmuch of the floor visible as possible, adding a feeling of space. while minimal brassware and concealedshower valves keep unnecessary elements hidden from view.

Opt for aspace-saving shower ‘Don‘t overlook the overall shape of your shower enclosure,’ advises Emma Foster, senior marketing manager at Mira Showers (0844 571 5000, 'Frameless and semi-frameless enclosures create the illusion of space while aquadrant‑ shaped shower will occupy a corner and take up less room than a curved design.‘

Consider your! heatingearly It’s also a good idea to decide at the start of your project how you will keep your bathroom warm. Underfloor hearing will help free up wall space that would usually be given over to a radiator, but needs to be installed before other demerits.

Small details can make a huge difference in a bathroom that’s designed to bestreamlined. Opting for handlcless furniture and reflective surfaces can give the illusion of more light and space, and it helps to think about colour, t o o . ‘As well aschoosing well‑ crafted products, finishes and colour options are key,’ explains Robin Levien, designer at Ideal Standard (01482 346 461', ‐ - )

‘A wall of cabinets might sound crowded.’ says D a n c e , 'but if you a d d mirrored doors they will look less conspicuous.' Another way of reducing the Impact of your storage isby choosing units that h a v e one sleek door front with a mix of drawers a n d shelves behhd. Alternatively. a mirrored cabinet with glass shelves either side w l l look unobtrusive w h l e providing voluabie extra storage.

These sit under the flooring, creating the correct gradient to cope with a high water flow to the drain. We were asked to make them all with sleek linear drains that had the option for a piece of matching flooring to be placed on it to complete the contemporary look.’ On The Level made each of the fonnets with a linear channel, so that the moulded concrete floor pieces could be fitted over them and there wouldn't bea need for a visible grate. However, the master bathroom, complete with afreestanding bath in the centre of the room, posed aspecific design challenge because of its size. ”This w e t room was particularly large and needed a specially designed former with t w o separate linear channels that were integrated to form one long one,’ says Clark.

12 NEW-BUILDS & DEVELOPMENTS: EDITORIAL FEATURE Picture urban living in a bustling, cosmopolitan community. Your first PARLIAMENT RESIDENT LIVERPOOL thought might be London, but this is the The private roof terrace lounge of this central waterfront development, comprising 44 onegrowing trend in the North West’s city and two-bedroom apartments. From £109,900, centres. In Manchester, the centre Prime Centrum population is up to 24,000, with numbers increasing by 83% in the past 10 years. This demand is also reflected in the increase in sold prices, with a 7% rise in the centre in 2015. The city has the fastest growing economy outside London and shows no signs of slowing, thanks to the government’s Northern Powerhouse agenda driving additional growth. All of which is no surprise, coming off the back of a £1bn regeneration project. As well as a £44m overhaul of Manchester Victoria station, there’s been increased focus on adjacent areas, such as NOMA (North of Manchester) as well as four proposed skyscrapers on Owen Street. ‘NOMA is a great example of the success of a city centre location — the area can’t build ONE CROSS ST homes fast enough MANCHESTER A city to keep up with centre mill conversion. demand,’ says Studios from £130,323, Jonathan Stephens, Surrenden Invest MD of property consultancy Surrenden Invest. ‘Savills has predicted that there’ll be a need for nearly 100,000 new properties in the next 10 years, and though a large part of this demand is being answered by new-builds, there has also been a trend for conversions.’ Given that a one-bedroom new-build apartment in central Manchester can be purchased for as little as £120,000, young professionals are able to enjoy a London lifestyle at a fraction of the cost. Town and city centre properties have never been more in ‘We’re now seeing emerging micro demand with values jumping 26% across the UK compared to markets, each with their own clientele,’ says Ged McPartlin, sales director at just 7% for rural locations. The North West of England is Ascend Properties. ‘For example, a prime example, with central new builds attracting buyers Castlefield, within the inner city conservation area, is made up of old red and renters alike. By Rachel Ogden brick Victorian warehouses and canals, giving it a more sophisticated edge that makes it popular with young professionals in a similar way to Shoreditch.’

Hot in the city


Liverpool’s city centre population has also increased — by 160% in a decade — with Knight Frank reporting prime town and city market prices at 3% above their 2007 peak. The rise has been fuelled by young professionals — more than half of its residents in 2011 were between 22 and 29. Job availability has also been a clear driver. According to PwC’s Good Growth for Cities 2014 report, Liverpool saw the largest improvement in income equality and the fourth largest rise in income per head of any UK city. More expensive properties, such as apartments set within Liverpool’s UNESCO World Heritage waterfront area, are in demand thanks to their proximity to the centre and the fact they often boast luxury facilities. ‘The diversity of the property market in North West cities remains characterised by an imbalance of demand and supply,’ says Sean Marshall, MD of Marshall Property. ‘It has sparked growth in developments aimed at long-term rentals in and around Merseyside, including projects such as The Keel, on the edge of Liverpool city centre, that aim to address the need for high-quality rental property.’

News from th e North West Designed to tempt buyers who wouldn’t normally consider a new-build home, hoUSe by Urban Splash with award-winning architects Shedkm is a new building concept that offers a bespoke alternative to mass schemes. Its first houses are situated on a waterfront site at New Islington, Manchester, with planning achieved for additional sites at Irwell Riverside in Salford and North Shields. Combining a traditional terraced approach with large windows that offer an abundance of sunlight and extensive views, each is made from volumetric timber pods that are energy efficient and delivered to site with minimal assembly. Buyers can choose their own layout, whether their living space is on the top or ground floor and specify between one and five bedrooms. Prices start from £260,000 for an entry level 1,000sq ft house.

Hint of damask While larger, open-plan bathrooms are usually ventilated well enough to keep voiles clean and fresh, in a smaller space, you should look for a lower-maintenance solution with a similar aesthetic.A semi‑ transparent roller blind will let in plenty of light, while being suitable for humid conditions. Plains are timeless but to add more of a personalised feel, opt for a subtle textured design in a classic print.

Made-to‐measure roller blind in Clara polyester fabric in Snowdrop, £168 for Hl73xW138.5crn. Style Studio





I Voiles can be used in countless ways: combined with other treatments, styles, colours and materials, and applied to different decorating schemes. I Usingacoloured voile will bring warmth to a room, hence why I often suggest combininga coloured voile with a simple taupeor beige curtain. In addition to this, aslightly shiny voile will reflect light, adding to the feeling of space. I When displaying voiles, it’s important to consider measurements, such as hanging length and width. To add atmosphere, use a voile fabric that’s about three times the width of the window. When combining with curtains,ensure the track or pole is wider than the window to allow the curtains to open without blocking light. I Voiles will protect your furniture from UV light damage. Plus, they will create a soft and cosy atmosphere in the room.

Natural selection Sheer window dressings don’t need to be white ‐ ivory,gold, silver and sofi taupe bring a more organic feel. Texture also adds another dimension, so look for crushed finishes and materials with a distinct weave, such assilk, cotton and linen. > Fabric Changer roller blind in Hessian natural linen fabric, £164.40 for H150xW249cm. and £110.40 for H134xW74.Scm, Bloc Blinds



I Fabric If you want your room to have a sumptuous, luxurious feel, opt for silk or a fabric with a slight shimmer. For simpler designs or small spaces, fuss‐free linens and cottons are ideal. Silk can betricky to care for and can be damaged by UV light, while more durable cottons and synthetic blends are easier to maintain. I Weight Voiles come in varying thicknesses. Yo u may need to buy a double width of a thinner, delicate fabric,soit c a n hang in folds, while thicker fabrics c a n look bulky in widths of m o r e than one-and-a-half the window size. If the fabric is light, look for voiles that have a weighted edge sothey’ll hang properly. I Fitting They can be hung on rails through a sleeve or tab at the top, with hooks, or through eyelets. lfvoiles are paired with curtains, a double or secondary rail is handy,so you can open and close them separately. I Colour Voiles are available in a wider range of shades and materials than n e t curtains. Darker shades offer more privacy but may also block m o r e light, while you canalso use coloured voiles to tint the room. For example, yellow will help make a north-facing r o o m feel sunnier andbrighter, while a pink t o n e can add warmth to a grey scheme. Textured weaves are idealf o r adding more character to a space. I Combinations If you’re hanging voiles with another treatment, such as curtains, then choose complementary colours for a more cohesive look, or contrasting hues to draw attention to the window within the scheme.



Somewhere between vertical blinds and voiles, this chic option softly diffuses harsh light, making it ideal for a home office. The sheer, drapery‐like fabric can be rotated, expanded or contracted for variable light control, and it filters o u t 99 per cent of UV rays when the vanes are closed ‐ protecting furniture'and flooring. > Luminette Privacy sheer polyester blinds are made to measure. Prices start at £586 for lm“. or £767 for motorised blinds, in a range of colours from Thomas Sanderson

Layered look There’s no need to forfeit colour and pattern ifyou're choosing a lightweight treatment. This pretty voile features butterflies to bring in a feelingof nature that's echoed on matching curtains. The repeating motif, continued across the cushions, ties the scheme together.

The Australian Skye Gyngell is one of Britain’s most respected chefs. Her first solo venture, Spring, at Somerset House opened to critical acclaim in 2014–a dramatically different offering to her former residency at Petersham Nurseries, where she earned a Michelin star. Her fourth book, Spring, is a collection of recipes and a behindthe-scenes look at the restaurant’s creation in Somerset House’s New Wing, which hadn’t been open for more than 150 years. Sophisticated yet welcoming, a similar ethos has been applied to Skye’s own stylish kitchen in her renovated west London town house. Rachel Ogden is invited in

Behind the design Elegant and understated, this is the kitchen in Skye’s terraced west London home that she shares with her daughter Evie. She’s lived here for about eight years, having renovated the threebedroom Victorian property— including installing central heating and removing the outside plumbing—although she’s lived in the area for about 30 years. Elder daughter Holly has since moved to LA and works as a photographer’s agent. Two years ago, frustrated with the cramped galley located between the living room at the rear of the house and the study at the front, Skye decided to relocate the kitchen. Moving it to the front of the house and turning the old kitchen into a relaxed dining area, she set about finding a design that would be as beautiful as the rest of her home. As she knew one of the founders of Plain English kitchens, Kate Fontana, she chose cabinets from the company’s off-the-peg option, British Standard, with some personalised touches from Plain English. Although the kitchen was set to occupy a larger space, Skye was uncertain about the configuration suggested by Kate—a long island with a fridge and food storage on one side and a range and sink on the other. However, as the island provided storage to keep her kitchen clutter-free, she adjusted to walking around it and now feels that a smaller version wouldn’t have worked as well. Another element that proved to be key to the design’s success are the honed marble worktops and splashback. Initially reticent about choosing a porous natural stone, Skye recounts her horror at finding the first stain, however, as other blemishes appeared, says she barely noticed them. What was more important was the feel of the design —after working all day in a frenetic kitchen, there’s nothing she enjoys more than coming home to a calm, peaceful space. Few accessories sit on the worktop, except her pestle and mortar. Described as her tool of the trade, it’s in frequent use to make sauces, aioli or mayonnaise with an authentic, pounded texture. 82 Country Life, April 6, 2016

Most of the appliances in Skye Gyngell’s kitchen are hidden away in cupboards, but decorative accessories in complementary tones, such as these vintage-style jelly moulds and teapot, give the space some life

Skye admits that the clean, pared-back kitchen is rarely the scene of Springlike feasts. It’s more likely to be used for simple meals, such as bowls of soup and bread with friends at the weekend. However, Evie seems to have inherited her mother’s passion for food, cooking up healthy dinners for friends with coconut oil and chia seeds. Personal touches abound in the room, from the 1970s Danish teapot with a bamboo handle that was her mother’s to a trio of good-luck elephants, which were given to Skye when Spring opened by Maureen Doherty from Egg, who also provided the uniforms for the restaurant. Framed Polaroids by photographer Jason Lowe from her book A Year in My Kitchen sit on the open shelving either side of the range as well as a confit jar that she bought in the Languedoc. Also on display are quirky copper moulds, bought by Skye from

E. Dehillerin when she was training in Paris in the 1980s. The island shelves are home to a selection of cookery books—although never intending to collect them, Skye has every volume she’s owned since the age of 17, including classics such as Chez Panisse Cooking by Paul Bertolli and Alice Waters to reference books La Méthode and La Technique by Jacques Pepin. The Zuni Café Cookbook by Judy Rodgers—her favourite —sits by her bed, however. Less for her to cook from and more for inspiration, there are five or six books she goes back to time and again, her constant companions throughout her cooking life.

I always have to hand... An extra-virgin olive oil. My personal choice is Capezzana, a Tuscan oil that I reach for most frequently I always have Ortiz anchovies, whether I’m making a salsa verde or for seasoning if I’m slow-cooking lamb. A good sea salt is also invaluable I generally have half a dozen really fresh eggs, because I think if you have eggs, you can make a meal. I often eat eggs at home on Sunday night, usually scrambled. I’m lucky at work because we make all our breads, so I’ll often bring home a porridge sourdough. It’s got cooked porridge all the way through the loaf, so it’s really custardy.
