We recently worked with customers on the renovation of the spacious open-plan kitchen/diner and living area in their stunning Victorian property in Camberley, Surrey. So, we were delighted to be able to commission a photoshoot of the finished interiors, which appeared in a large ‘Escape to the country’ feature in KBB magazine!

As their first renovation project, Sian and Chris fell in love with this stunning home, which boasts five bedrooms and substantial outside space, including a swimming pool. While the exterior was modernized by repainting the traditional wooden beams and replacing the windows, they significantly remodeled the inside to create a spacious open-plan family home.

The main aim of the project was to create an open-plan kitchen/diner that would be perfect for both parties and family time, with a traditional Cotswold country cottage feel. While big fans of Victorian properties, Sian and Chris also love the warmth and homely feel of Cotswold homes, so wanted to find a stylish way of bringing the two together.

“For us, despite the house being quite grand outside, we wanted it to feel inviting and informal as soon as you entered the hallway,” says Sian. “We trawled the internet for Cotswold-inspired flooring and Beswickstone stood out immediately with its comprehensive range of wood, stone, and tiled floors, which epitomized the look we wanted to achieve.”

Through the décor, Sian and Chris were able to create zoned areas, with wood paneling and open-brick walls. They chose limestone tiles from our beautiful tumbled limestone flooring collection for the dining room and gave the kitchen area a more contemporary feel with our gorgeous hand scraped engineered oak flooring. The flooring choices create definition, with the limestone floor tiles marrying with the stone used for the outside patio and pool area. 

Our fabulous Villiers Grey French limestone is a delicately aged natural flagstone flooring, with wonderful fossil and shell detailing, offering the perfect accompaniment to the cozy living area, with open fire and wood paneling on the walls. Following through to the dining space, the limestone flooring creates a seamless transition to the outside patio area, highlighted by the large French windows. In the kitchen area, our beautiful hand scraped oiled engineered oak flooring gives a timeless finish, with exquisite rustic knots and splits being the epitome of country style kitchen flooring.

The combination of engineered oak flooring and limestone flooring gives Sian and Chris the stunning Cotswold look they desired, perfectly complementing the modern shaker-style kitchen and the country feel of the living and dining area.

“We had already ordered our wood floor from a Surrey-based retailer but made a last-minute dash to Beswickstone’s gorgeous showroom where we selected a combination of wood and stone for the kitchen/diner. The choice would have been overwhelming had it not been for the expert advice of Lesley and team, who helped us to select the best products for each area, based on a combination of aesthetic and practical considerations.”
