Impala’s client owned a classic Federation bungalow. The brief was to design a kitchen in keeping with the home’s style and catering for a family of four. The kitchen needed to be functional and relaxing as this is the centre of the family home. The kitchen looks over the backyard and is open plan to the dining and living areas.
When renovating the home, the owners chose to incorporate rustic French features such as a French doors, a beautiful marble mantle piece and French Oak floorboards, so it was vital the kitchen be in keeping with the tone set by these feature items.
The relatively simple mantel area gives a traditional focal point without boxing in the cooking area. There is plenty of bench space either side of the cooking range and the flanking glass doors lighten the look.
Shaker-style posts define the breakfast bar and the grooved panelling with traditional proud kickboards give the kitchen a warm and welcoming ambience.
Our client was delighted with the end product and entered the kitchen in a “Home Beautiful” Magazine competition for the “Most Beautiful Room”. Out of thousands of entries, the kitchen was chosen to be featured in the magazine and we are proud the project was a national finalist.
