Family Room – Wardington, Oxfordshire

Posted by Rhian Burrell, on January 10, 2022.


Our clients for this Oxfordshire based bedroom project were recommended to us through a previous customer. After taking a good look around our website they made contact through the website form and follow up phone calls.

Our customers had been in their countryside farm house for some time and described it as ‘shabby chic’ and in real need of some attention, they had contemplated moving before deciding to complete a total home renovation. Initially our discussions revolved around updating some bedroom furniture but quickly became far more than that, and ended up including 6 rooms within the house. We took on the project management role as well as the furniture and kitchen design, build and fit.

In its original state the family room felt disconnected to the rest of the house. Our clients wanted to widen the doorway to improve the flow between the rooms and ultimately wanted this room to become an adjoining hub to the kitchen where the family would sit together for meals.

The Vision

To complement the rest of the house we opted for shaker style furniture. We created a bespoke media cabinet to replace an old bookcase and included a gaming shelf and personalised layout drawers for the children. We designed a purpose built window seat with storage to create maximum space around the large family table.

New stone flooring was laid to tie in with the kitchen, new lighting fitted and a full re-decoration with expert guidance from Lydia Cherry Design.
