A family kitchen in Sydney’s Northern Beaches needed an update to make the most of an open plan living space and stunning outdoor entertaining area. A relaxed palette with organic shapes and textures creates a coastal retreat in this quality modern home.
A stunning artwork of sentimental value to the family, commissioned by artist Amanda Tye of Sydney Rd Galleries, is the hero of the dine-in space and captures the feel of the surrounding area.
V-Groove panelling creates a modern coastal aesthetic and signature timber handles and feature joinery add warmth and sophistication to the space.
Drawers under the cooktop maximise functional storage and the timber veneer drawer fronts with finger pulls are streamlined and fuss free for this busy family. Engineered stone looks sleek and is easy to care for, with the same material being used on the splashback for effortless cleaning.
Walls were removed so the kitchen overlooks the pool and alfresco living area and makes the most of the sunlit coastal skyline and leafy Sydney suburb views.
An eat in island bench was included as there was an underutilised dining room adjacent to the space. Timber veneer was curved to create the dining area that easily seats four people for a casual meal or is fabulous when entertaining.
Timber open shelves display an assortment of greenery and add interest to the space.
The timber lined appliance pantry is the envy of all with excellent storage for appliances and drygoods. Pullout drawers underneath house crockery for toast and tea making, keeping this breakfast zone out of the main working area of the kitchen. Wingline doors are a robust hardware solution to this hardworking inclusion to the kitchen.
The sliding door to the pantry is highly functional and provides easy access to consumables from all areas of this 5 zoned kitchen and is adjacent to the cooking and preparation areas.
Bespoke joinery beside the fireplace adds elegance and houses the workings for the Smart TV that displays photos taken by family when not in use. The floating timber shelves house more greenery to tie into the green outdoors with knick-knacks and books to make it feel like home. An inviting place to sit by the fire on a winter’s day or night or make the most of the summer sun in this dream home.
