Contemporary update for Dublin kitchen

Full of light, this large modern kitchen in Lucan embraces open-plan design to create a homely yet fully modern space, with a dining area to the left and a comfortable living room to the right.

Originally built in the late Fifties/early Sixties, the property came with a kitchen very much rooted within that period. Located at the front of the dwelling, it was small and never quite worked for Peter Bourke and his wife, Anne, who have lived in the bungalow for the past 15 years. As such, this renovation project subsequently involved more than just a simple refit, requiring a complete restructuring.
