When you blog about interiors you are always wanting to try out new ideas and come up with new plans. But you soon run out of space! We would love to be able to put an extension on the back of this house. This would create a large open kitchen and dining room. Something that would be amazing and would free up the room within the current house too.
As soon as I start thinking about extensions I start thinking about how I would decorate the new space! I can’t help it!! So I thought I would put together my ideas. Of course this isn’t happening yet (you guys would soon know about it!) so I have gathered some ideas together of styles I love and pieces I love.
I would love to be brave and go bold. The space would be lovely and open and would deserve a statement kitchen to go with it. I have always been tempted by dark kitchen units, and then I need to start choosing what kitchen worktops to go with it. Could I be brave enough to go with white worktops? Then I spotted this one with gold taps too! The shot of colours look fantastic with them too.

I really want a big table that everyone can sit around with no squeezing on when other people come to eat with us too. With the table in the kitchen people are able to sit down and chat to you when you are cooking. The children can sit there and do their homework without being away from you. A big table to be able to get the kids crafts out all over and come up with some fantastic creations!

Hard Wearing Flooring
This area is going to have a high footfall and that means the floor needs to be hard wearing. This will be our only access to the garden, so kids and dogs coming in and out of the door all day in the summer. Muddy dog paws in the winter too. Wood flooring is tough enough to handle this but gives a warm feeling underfoot. Having dark units and white worktops can be pretty harsh colouring, so by adding in a warm wood flooring then you instantly add in some warmth. I came across this stunning kitchen and it’s perfect.
My new extension would be looking out over the garden. So I would want to make the most of this. After how rubbish this winter has been, I would love to be able to curl up in a sofa looking out over the garden. Being able to have my morning cup of tea with some sunshine shining in (OK I pushed it too far for England!!)
