This client approached us with a request to update their 40-year-old kitchen, which had undergone minor upgrades over the years but had become a hindrance in the middle of their home.
We were able to keep costs down by utilising the same kitchen footprint but reconfiguring the layout. The original peninsula was replaced with an island, and the appliances were strategically placed to create a more efficient workflow. This preserved the kitchen's quirky charm while enhancing its functionality.
To achieve the client's desired industrial/rustic aesthetic, we used a combination of materials and finishes, including reclaimed wood for the open shelves. This created a unique and inviting space where the family could comfortably spend time together in the kitchen.
Overall, the updated kitchen achieved a balance between practicality and style, and the client was thrilled with the result.
Doors - Janper Thompson 3 in White Satin and Black Satin
Benchtop - YDL Kalala Shan
Handles - Castella
This kitchen has a non-conventional footprint which we were able to work with to make the most of the space. The stone benchtops are stunning and bounce the light around that comes in through the nearby glass doors and windows.
The extra deep walk in blind corner pantry provides extra storage as well as the usual out-of-sight functionality. All the overhead cabinets in the kitchen have warm under-cabinet strip lighting as well as the base of the island cabinets.
The splashback is timeless white subway tiles with black grouting, and the timber shelves with black hardware match the kitchen accessories.
The doors have a black surround that matches seamlessly with the kitchen. The island bench has a good overhang and is long enough to provide stool seating for 4 people.
