A heritage home in Sydney’s Balmain with views across the harbour and city skyline needed a new kitchen in keeping with the grandly proportioned residence that was built in the early 1900’s. The rest of the house had been impeccably restored and modernised for contemporary living but the kitchen was wedged into a corner with poor storage and no flow to the adjacent living areas or north facing gardens and sunny back yard.
The client wanted:
The kitchen was relocated from the corner of the underutilised room to a commanding position in the centre of the space with views over the leafy back yard.
An oversize island bench houses a downdraft cooktop and sink so all processes can be performed in this one functional area. A wine fridge provides easy access for entertaining.
Double wall ovens, fridge and appliance zone are part of this work zone
Drawers maximise functional storage and 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 easy cleaning.
A separate appliance pantry keeps appliances off the bench, so the kitchen is sleek and easy to keep tidy with excellent storage for appliances and dry goods in the adjacent pantry.
An eat in island bench was included in the kitchen. The timber benchtop easily seats four people for a casual meal or is fabulous when entertaining.
