The client wanted:
A narrow Shaker style door was selected with curved panels to the island bench to create a style that is a modern interpretation of a federation kitchen to suit contemporary family living.
The redesigned layout also includes a Butler’s Pantry which provides ample room for appliances and dry goods with plenty of bench space for preparation. A second sink, bin and dishwasher allow it to function as a scullery making entertaining effortless and keeping the main kitchen clutter free.
The new footprint includes a highly functional laundry which is tucked away behind panelled doors. The natural stone mosaic and floating shelves add beauty to this often-overlooked space.
Traditional exposed breach taps were chosen in a specialty aged brass finish pick up the gold flecks in the stone benchtops. The undermount fireclay sink harmonise with the heritage nature of the home with wainscoted wall panelling completing the heritage look.
Rich and warm interior finishes meet with a family designed layout and practical surfaces. A splashback window keeps the feeling light and spacious.
Large sliding doors were installed so the kitchen flows into the adjacent living and dining areas then out to the alfresco outdoor entertaining and leafy back yard.
