Fitting in a linen room


Going for a pedestrian flow

Like a well known home furnishings establishment
though less meandering

Whole idea for a linen space arose ‘cos of extra room above kitchen extension and because I’d foolishly made a sort of linen press and it needed a home.

Where are we looking for space

The upper room over the kitchen has always been the live-in women’s sleep area and I’m proposing splitting it up.

Rough lay-out. It does mean that the ladies get squeezed into mere cubby-holes for sleeping but it might work.  Access to the men’s sleep area is from steps outside at bottom right, running in front of the dairy outer door.

Putting the linen room in the extra space above the stores (which meant going through their room) seemed odd so I’ve swapped it around a little making the linen room the first area you go up into out of the main kitchen and then squeezing the poor workers into two small cubby holes for sleeping.

Newly dressed corner under the stairs up to the linen room and women’s sleeping areas as in the plan.  (I’m hoping those hanging herbs will stay greenish – they were picked about four years ago so it’s possible they might)

Thus the linen store is directly at the top of the stairs, gaining the immediate heat from the cooking below and the girls would be warm too, if possibly a little damp.

As you may notice I can never resist the mini pottery.  Took delivery the other day of some more Duncan White pots (from Pedlar’s Tray) and have salted them around the main kitchen.
