Bringing together usability and smaller spaces
This home is proof that, even where space is tight, amazing flexible family spaces can be achieved. The pretty Edwardian cottage is over 100 years old and has been lovingly maintained by its current owners. But they needed Spacemaker’s help to bring the home into the 21st century.

These clients didn’t need a huge amount of space since their children have long left home, but they needed the home to work better for them. The single bathroom, which also housed a cramped European –style laundry, and the small, dark kitchen/dining room were impractical, dated and depressing. The changes delivered by Spacemaker have made a massive difference to the enjoyment of their home.
With the addition of grandchildren, the family’s needs have changed again. This time round, Spacemaker’s brief was to provide more flexible accommodation for their grandchildren’s sleepovers, as well as some ‘working from home’ space.
