Today I visited a beautiful 18th century cottage in need of a new kitchen – my inspiration for this post.
Kitchens in small, old buildings such as cottages and farmhouses are often the most challenging to design and install. We can be faced with the issue of compactness, awkward dimensions, a lack of straight walls, a lack of insulation and exposure to damp to name a few. The cottage I visited today doesn’t even have solid foundations, just sand! These challenges are also what give country cottages their wonderful character and unique-ness.
Specific cottage and farmhouse kitchen features will be covered in future posts to give you more to look forward to!
