This the view of the clients empty Kitchen before staging. I felt that the kitchen had no heart with no island, workbench or table and had become simply a walkway to the far room which will be the dining room.
So this is what I did…..
I added a long narrow vintage zinc-topped table found in Portobello Road, to create a work space between the stainless steel kitchen cabinets worktop and the fridge. I felt a central island table would have taken over and would have made the kitchen space feel smaller.
I sourced an industrial style metal and wood stool to compliment the table
Styling details I added are vintage wooden crates with fake ferns to create extra interest in a “dead” corner.
Other styling details you can see from this angle are a wall clock, a metal bowl with some fake pears to add a flash of colour, herb pots on the window sill, an inscribed cheese board on top of the ovens. The picture below is a different view of the empty kitchen before staging.
Styling details: A retro kitchen scales picking up the duck egg blue that can be seen the dining room, a Dualit kettle, cook books, a wall clock with the same blue shade and herbs in metal containers.
In this final photos you can see a glimpse of the hall and the vintage industrial style wood workbench
