A love of contemporary design has led Emily Burt to create a family-friendly and spacious new kitchen
A bit about me
Hi, I’m Emily Burt. I live with my husband, Robert, and our two children, in a three-bedroom house in Edinburgh.
My problem kitchen
The kitchen and dining room were two small separate rooms, both cramped, dark and dated. We needed to create more space by opening it up to give it a new lease of life.
How I made it work
We knocked through a supporting wall to create an open-plan kitchen and dining area, with room for a fun play area. Choosing an all-white scheme has made the space particularly bright and cheerful. Access to the garden is beyond the dining area off a corridor, which leads to my office and storage space for my Scandinavian children’s clothing and homeware business called mamatot.
My favourite part
I love the fact that I can cook and chat with friends and Robert and easily keep an eye on the children while they are playing.
