Projects - Scandi Style
The owners of this Preston property were drawn to clean lines and a Scandi style, which inspired an extensive renovation that added new rooms to the rear of the suburban property. This expansion created an opportunity to maximize the value of the north-facing yard and add high ceilings to the new space, where the kitchen was located. The original footprint of the property was utilised for the butler's pantry and laundry.
The island bench features a generous overhang that accommodates stool seating, making it an ideal spot for kids to do homework or help with weekend baking. The butler's pantry offers additional storage and discreet functionality, with under-cabinet strip lighting in all cabinets throughout the kitchen and pantry.
The use of concrete-finish benchtops, timber-look overhead cabinets, and wood accents on the drawer handles create a warm and inviting Scandi aesthetic for the kitchen. To maintain continuity with the design, the laundry was seamlessly incorporated into the scheme with matching benchtops and splashback tiles. The style and color of the cabinets and handles are replicated in the laundry, which also benefits from under-cabinet lighting.
One of the cabinets in the laundry doubles as a drying cabinet, with an internal heater that was installed before completion to enhance functionality and add appeal to the space.
Overall, the renovation achieved a cohesive and functional design that beautifully merges the Scandi style with modern functionality.
