They’d never renovated before but when Grant and Michelle Woods bought a 1930s home they took on the challenge of a complete overhaul. A small room was converted into a combined dining and kitchen area fi ve metres long by 3.5 metres wide.
THE MAKEOVER PLAN
Worn terrazzo benchtops, painted timber cupboards and an oversized pantry featured in the old kitchen.
After trying out different designs in the small space and finding that nothing was really working, the couple decided to go with a converted layout to make a common area.
‘We knocked out the pantry and the wall between the living room and kitchen to increase the overall space and make the whole area open plan,’ says Grant. ‘For the finishes we went with all white for a clean, fresh look that doesn’t date.’
Michelle says, ‘Instead of having an island bench in the middle we have a stainless steel table that functions as an extra benchtop and was designed to blend with the rest of the kitchen. ‘As it’s our only dining area we chose to position the table then design everything else around it.’
