I still can’t quite believe that I actually have a real life dressing room! Such a ridiculous indulgence, but at the moment we have no need for another bedroom/bathroom or a study, so when I saw this space I immediately thought that my teenage dream could come true.
In theory the bathroom should have been relatively simple to transform, but its small size made it a bit of a challenge.
The kitchen is probably the room that has been transformed the most in the renovation (although it’s a close call with the bathroom) and was also the most major project. I knew as soon as we first viewed the cottage that I would have to take down the wall dividing the kitchen and the dining/living area. It’s a big place and I just didn’t see the point in having so much living space and yet such a pokey little kitchen. P wasn’t convinced originally as he was worried it would affect our ability to use the space as a living room if we needed an additional bedroom down the line and/or when we came to sell, but after some gentle persuasion he saw the light!
