Here we are again! Ready to unwrap and reveal the final results of our latest project this time our client was a lovely young couple living in Dalston who came to us asking help to renovate their existing kitchen/diner as they really wanted to update the space to suit their lifestyle requirements. We've been working hard on this renovation and we are finally excited to show you the before-and-after results of the transformation. If you want an insight into the construction of this project or just want a little refresher of the details, check out last week's post here: The Dalston Diner Construction.

The Transformation

This Dalston kitchen was in dire need of a makeover. Our lovely client, a couple, were craving for a newly designed kitchen that would suit and fully represent them. Since the beginning, we knew how to tackle and transform this dilapidated space into an entirely new and up-to-date kitchen/diner they were dreaming of one day owning. We started rearranging the kitchen as to maximise the tight space allowing for new more efficient appliances. This also allowed us to have more free space to make it possible to have a round dinner table which could host up to four people.

The Design Features

We opted for a very simple and clean look for the interior, deciding to style it with greys and blacks to make the space young and contemporary. We introduced black painted furniture; a dining table and a small ladder storage system to house the existing decorative objects belonging to the couple. The simple colour contrasts and overall result left our clients super satisfied about their new kitchen.
