Like its sister three bedroom flat, this was bought as a unfinished shell. Again, we added value to the floor plan by making some changes to the layout. The original bathroom was made smaller and the space gained was turned into a walk-in wardrobe area with access between the bedroom and bathroom. The previously planned kitchen island was removed in favour of two small banks of kitchen units in an L shape. This opened the room to give better flow between the cooking-dining and lounge zones.
Instead of a traditional L-shaped kitchen, we decided on two banks of kitchen units with a space between them. This design is a bit more eye-catching and the empty corner doesn’t lose you that much space. The high gloss light grey kitchen cabinets contrast very well with the white floor and dark grey worktop which are both Matt finish. The grey paint on the walls is only in the kitchen area to make it stand out from the rest of the room.

Light & Colour
We wanted to create a striking small flat as it would be on short-term booking sites. We chose a white washed floor to maximise brightness and off-set this with solid colours for great contrast. A mixture of spotlights and down-lighting create different intensities of the chosen colours. The artwork came from a local graphic designer. His geometric patterns contrasted well against the plain white walls.
In a small flat you have to make furniture choices count. Glass is a major component of the bathroom and we wanted to reflect this throughout the flat by incorporating a glass dining table and glass bedside tables. Turquoise accessories and towels were chosen to match the vivid bedroom wall and bring that colour into the rest of the flat.
