This kitchen renovation is the perfect example of how clever design and layout can maximise storage in any space. The old, heavy-timber kitchen was badly designed and dysfunctional with very little usable storage space so the main brief to the design team was to fix this oversight as well as create an exterior that would bring pleasure to this family every time they use the kitchen.
An alluring combination of colours and textures, paired with a contemporary timber look, creates a sense of beachside relaxation for these city-based owners. Now light and spacious, the kitchen’s design plays on our visual impression of space with darker base cabinets and lighter overhead colours to make the most of every centimetre available.
Internally, storage is maximised thanks to a range of products which utilise every nook and cranny including a Blum corner drawer unit, Le Mans unit, two-tier pull-out for oil and spices, and a pull-out tea-towel rail.
Whitewashed timber-look floor tiles provide a much-needed injection of brightness while offering a luminous, tactile quality which harmonises with the vertical surfaces. Bevelled Subway tiles hint at the essence of a bygone era while Shaker-style cabinetry adds to the character of the room.
LED downlights were carefully placed to ensure light is available where needed while the tabletop adds an important social aspect to the kitchen with its lovely curves enhancing the overall flow of the room. A dedicated coffee-making area was placed adjacent to the pantry for added convenience and access.
