Designing the perfect family home

The Paice family home has the perfect space for everyone, from the super-sized family room to the girls’ dream playhouse

Keely took the whole project in her stride and designed and project-managed the entire rebuild; not just the finishing touches, but the nitty-gritty technical stuff, even down to the smallest detail of where the pipes needed to be laid and plug sockets placed – no mean feat. It’s at the back of the house that the real family space becomes apparent. Here, Keely devised an extension for the house to open up the space to create a large family room that joins to a kitchen and dining space along with a utility room and bifolding glass doors that open onto the garden. 

“The kitchen extension was essential as we wanted to create a family living space, rather than just a kitchen; a place where the whole family can interact, play, work, eat and entertain,” says Keely. The kitchen cabinets were kept simple so they wouldn’t detract from the overall space. “It works to mix things,” she says. “We had spent a lot of money on the basics of the extension and getting the finish right, and then saved money on good-value cabinets from Ikea.”
