The sleek, modern space you see here is a far cry from the original kitchen that stood in its place. Simple, predominantly white and lacking storage, this kitchen’s predecessor was in dire need of a contemporary update when the homeowners approached Seavern. The brief was clear: a modern, edgy kitchen space that seamlessly complements the heritage of the award-winning architectural home, with high-end appliances and plenty of storage space.
Specialising in architectural joinery, Seavern ensured that the storage was seamless and functional with a high-end finish. Plenty of storage was integrated through the clever use of space, including a brand-new butler’s pantry to give the family extra prep room and storage. While the striking oversized island benchtop exudes luxury, it was also designed to introduce extra seating and functionality for entertaining. Polished to perfection, the striking solid American oak island extension is a bold statement that adds warmth and texture. The considered selection of high-end appliances add to the contemporary feel of the space while providing a professional cooking experience.
Aesthetic appeal was very high on the homeowners’ wish list for their new culinary haven. Skilled joiners on the project, Seavern brought the space to life with custom wall panelling that was used to create flow throughout the kitchen, resulting in a bespoke finish. In addition, an unsightly electrical box was cleverly hidden by the panelling, adding to the overall sense of seamlessness in the space.
A testament to the artisanal efforts of skilled joiners, this new and improved ‘heart of the home’ beautifully captures the style of the homeowners, who now cherish the time they spend in this area with family and friends.
