After year of pondering if we will move house we have made the decision to stay put. We have a lovely home in a lovely area. Perfect for primary and secondary schools. So during this lockdown period I have made being making some future plans for our home.
My main aim is to extend our kitchen/family area. Whilst it is already a lovely space we could definitely do with more room as our small children get bigger! This is the room we spend the most time in as a family. I love that I can be cooking and the children can be playing. Watching a film or doing homework and still all be together.
With this in mind, as much as I want this room to be stylish and modern I also need it to be child friendly. I want the kids to be able to relax and have fun without me worrying that they will stain the floors or ruin the couch. It is about making those little tweaks to ensure that we can all enjoy the room.
We currently have vinyl flooring and we definitely plan to stick with this. It is hard wearing and has no marks (even with the girls scooting around on it!). Unlike wood, it is more cost effective and doesn’t need treating. Perfect for family areas. There are so many different styles to choose from this will be a must for our renovated room.
We have lots of toys in this room and I love this, I want to see my children playing as much as possible. However, I would like to purchase a huge toy chest. Enabling me to try and hide some of the toys away once the children have gone to bed. I would love new appliances including a huge double oven and Smeg fridge. The colourful ones are stunning. One of these is definitely top of my wish list! I also plan to have granite worktops which always finish a kitchen off perfectly.
I love bright rooms and we are lucky enough that our kitchen area gets the sun all day. To enhance this light even more I plan on sky lights and bi-folding doors across the whole of the room.
I plan to complete the room with a huge round table, perfect for eating our family meals together with enough extra room to invite family around.
How would you design your perfect room?
