Kitchen design by Ann Stevens of Woodbrook Designs


At the time of entering the 2015 Renovation of the Year competition run by House Beautiful magazine Tara Fry and her family lived in a 30-year-old four-bed detached house near Chepstow, Monmouthshire. Tara and her husband Arron bought the property in 2009  As part of the house renovation project the new kitchen was designed by Ann Stevens of Woodbrook Designs (Monmouth). 


The house is a good size but the kitchen was very small, there was nowhere to eat together as a family.  The units were dark and outdated.  When the couple decided to extend the property the kitchen was definitely the first room to tackle. 


Through a personal recommendation Tara was introduced to Monmouth based kitchen designer Ann Stevens of Woodbrook Designs. 'I'd imagined that, given our budget, we'd end up going to a high street retailer and putting the kitchen together ourselves,' says Tara. 'But Ann's proposals were very affordable and she came up with all sorts of clever ideas in a series of 3D drawings.'  Tara chose a design that incorporated handle less units with a combination of plain buff-coloured doors for the kitchen base units and a stylish wood-grain effect for the breakfast bar and the oven and fridge freezer casing.


The main feature is an L-shaped breakfast bar where the family can gather to eat and chat. 'People can spend a fortune on a new kitchen,' says Tara, 'but Ann took care of our budget and organised the ordering and delivery of the kitchen furniture and made sure everything was in place on time.  The kitchen cost approximately £6,000 (excluding appliances).
