The Whitaker family consists of Mum, Dad, two kids, a dog and some much-loved guinea pigs! Whether it's playing Xbox or shooting hoops in the backyard, they always manage to find time for family – something that is very important to them. When designing their new kitchen and outdoor area, their aim was to create a space that would encourage even more time spent together as a family.

The existing space

With a kitchen nearing 20 years old, chipped bench tops and appliances on their last legs, the Whitaker family's kitchen was overdue for a refresh. Keen on taking advantage of existing work done to open up the space to their outdoor areas, the Whitakers knew that an IKEA makeover would be just the thing to help them make the most of their time at home.

THE
PLAN
"We all chose separately but chose the same kitchen!"
"I like grey – it flows well with the rest of our house."

The blueprint

The Whitakers used the IKEA 3D Kitchen Planner to see how different kitchen styles and colours would look. A case of great minds thinking alike – each member of the family chose the same kitchen, meaning the final choice was an easy one!

TAKING
SHAPE
"It's such a light room, we think it can carry a darker kitchen."

Waste not want not

The installer took care to remove the existing kitchen without damaging it. The family then sold it on eBay and donated the profits to charity – their way of passing on a little 'thank you' for their new kitchen!

A
SPACE
FOR
LIVING
"It just feels so much bigger, more spacious."
"It's like there's another room out there now."

The space after

The final kitchen and outdoor space is a world away from where it was. The Whitakers now have the kitchen of their dreams, filled with those little touches that make all the difference as well as a whole new outdoor space, perfect for entertaining!
