At DBR Interiors we’re always keen to deliver a bathroom or kitchen to the exact specifications of our clients. Our Before & After feature will show you the work that’s put into every project.

This week we’ll show you the results of changing an average kitchen into a beautiful country-style space.

Jim and Gail’s kitchen was an out of date, tired looking kitchen. There wasn’t a great deal of space in the original kitchen and what they really wanted was a room they could dine and entertain in. We accepted this challenge, knocked down a few walls and not only delivered a great kitchen but added a few talking points. There was a great deal of space available around the cooker area and instead of installing a standard extractor fan we decided to design an impressive feature wall.

Once the Milbourne kitchen was fitted then we got to work building the frame of the feature wall. This was done by using CLS to create the framework and sheeted with plasterboard. We neatly hid the extractor hood underneath along with the duct and wiring. The result, well see what our customer had to say!

Although there was plenty of storage included in the furniture they had chosen, the feature wall allowed for more above the cooker.

The way the wall was constructed meant the focus was taken away from what would be a normal extractor fan and placed on the beautiful real-brick space around the cooker. The brick complemented the country-kitchen look.


Mirroring the feature wall was another great addition to Jim & Gail’s country-style kitchen.

We designed the false chimney breast so it was able to house the mounted television, without showing any messy wires. Not only is it impressive but it also saved on the limited space available.

The finished article included a stunning country-style kitchen with exposed brickwork, enough room for a dining table and chairs, increased storage, a modern inbuilt wine cooler, downlights with Bluetooth speakers built in and more importantly a fantastic room to cook and entertain friends and family in.
