The drawers and knobs add to the cheerfulness of this kitchen. Opposite the worktop an old kitchen Italian table - formerly used for pasta making with a Carrara Marble top. The table was positioned against the wall separating the lounge into which an opening was made to connect the two volumes. The door to the lounge, not a period feature, was chucked.
Mediterranean Style Kitchen
The kitchen had two original features - the hood connecting to a chimney allowing natural ventilation, and a stone sink. The latter was very rustic, very damaged, positioned very low and the wrong width - it had to go. The naturally ventilated silent hood, was kept to ensure all vapour from wet areas would find its way up the chimney 24/7.
