Description: four-bed family home
In a family home, well-designed storage can be truly transformational. In this Kildare abode, a growing family of five sought to make the ground floor of their home work better for their needs. By knocking through from the kitchen to the living room, and by adding a dining room extension, the footprint of the main living area dramatically increased. In the kitchen, a central island, topped with Quartz, is surrounded by floor-to-ceiling storage, and in the corner, there is a neat work-from-home workspace. Furniture and fittings are earthy in each zoned area, with rough-hewn woods combining with industrial steel elements and exposed brick. The result? A robust interior that’s ideal for the rough and tumble of family life.
“What I loved about the InSpace approach was that they distilled down all our ideas and came back with a few options that incorporated as much as they could, but within the parameters we faced. Emily came up with some really unique features, specifically the lighting and soft furnishings, wall designs and creating a complementary colour palette for the space. As we moved through the renovation, from kitchen into the living and dining space, Emily came back each time with a refined mood board of options that we could pick from. We knew we wanted something different, but we didn’t have the time or knowledge to source the furniture for the interior we always wanted. This was without doubt the most valuable part of the process for me.” – Home Owner
