Part Two - Hertford kitchen, dining and cloakroom renovation

It’s been just over a week since I published part one of our Hertford kitchen, dining and cloakroom project, blog post. Despite the current pandemic, work has been able to proceed to schedule and I am pleased to say that the plastering has dried, the walls have been painted and the flooring has been laid.

I was able to discuss the developments with our clients who are ecstatic with the progress and the changes to their living space.

Here are their thoughts; “this new open-plan space has allowed the dining room to be more utilised, as it is now much lighter. Having the three sets of sliding doors has allowed better views of our south facing garden and has enabled the back of the house to be flooded with light”.

Sliding doors can be both a practical and attractive addition to any home. By introducing large, glass-heavy doors to a room, it opens it up to maximum light filtration, creating an airy and bright atmosphere.

Paint Palette

It’s easy to add personality to your home without overpowering it with colour. When discussing the perfect paint palette with our clients, we asked them to consider combining a main, neutral shade with an accent colour. Our brief was that, they dislike anything too bold or fussy; aiming for a more contemporary look.


Lunar Landing

White Mist

Having chosen cabinetry painted in Ammonite, the most complimentary colour palette, to retain the linear, contemporary feel was White Mist and Lunar Landing in a diamond matt finish by Dulux.

We often recommend Dulux as they are a robust and washable paint.


There are so many kitchen flooring options available. When making your decision, you’ll want to consider two factors: function and durability, (will it withstand lots of foot traffic)? Whatever it’s made of, your kitchen floor should be easy-to-maintain and long-lasting and there is an option for everyone, no matter your style or budget.

Our clients opted for ‘vinyl click flooring’ in a grey. It is an excellent choice for high-traffic areas offering durability, warmth and water resistance, making it an ideal choice for a kitchen. The quick to lay locking mechanism allows you to lay the floor over the top of underlay and underfloor heating without the need of adhesives.

I'll be providing a weekly update to the blog, but if you can't wait, make sure you follow us on Facebook and Instagram and view our project updates on our stories.
