An Entertainers Delight
This gorgeous Dalkeith home deserved a new look throughout and the owners were inspired by a light, open airy and Hamptons-esque moodboard.
A Butler’s pantry was added, a new doorway leading off the kitchen was added to access some underused space previously used as a formal dining room.
In the adjacent family room, the old doorway to the formal dining area was closed but the recess retained. This was fitted out with custom cabinetry and open shelving to give much needed extra storage. Plantation shutters and a matching custom- made media unit were added to complete the new area.
By changing a few walls, a new organisation hub was created where the old fridge had been housed. A dedicated area was needed to keep the family’s busy schedule under control, filing cabinets were hidden behind soft close cabinet doors, a neat desk with a USB charging station, a pigeon hole for each family member and recessed LED lighting to illuminate the desk when working.
A great place to relax and put your feet up!
The new en-suite bathroom adjoining the parents retreat, had previously been a minor bedroom. Gorgeous travertine porcelain tiles were used on the floor and feature wall behind the bath. An LED lit recess above the bath the perfect place for a gin and tonic whilst relaxing in the beautiful oval bath.
A large walk in shower was separated from the toilet with a frosted screen echoing the tile detail above the bath.
The other half of the old formal dining room was put to very good use to house the owner’s favourite wines. The climate controlled, insulated space was fitted out with an adjustable racking solution that could accommodate several hundred bottles in perfect conditions.
Both children were involved in the furnishings for their new rooms at the front of the home, new study spaces and lots of storage was required for the rigours of high school. IKEA PAX wardrobes were up to the task. Fully adjustable interiors almost 2.4m tall that can be adapted to suit any storage requirements.
A perfect place to hang out with school mates.
