When it came to designing their kitchen, the homeowners had a good idea of how they wanted it to look and feel. Making it a warm environment where family and friends could socialise was a large part of their vision. Terry Steegstra from Kitchens Victoria made sure the clients’ needs were met and exceeded during the design and construction period, so that they would love their new kitchen space. The position of the kitchen ensured maximum light, which was something the team at Kitchens Victoria was excited about incorporating into the design. The beautiful outlook from the sink area creates a fantastic environment to relax in or for entertaining. Anyone preparing a meal in the kitchen doesn’t feel left out of the fun, as the kitchen has full views of the living and dining rooms, the garden and lovely alfresco area.
The colonial style that has been applied throughout the house was introduced into the kitchen through the use of the Farmers waratah doors, the stained-glass window above the sink, the plate rack and the corbels. An old-world appeal is nicely balanced with modern appliances and features required by the family. One major requirement of the clients was storage, storage and more storage. This problem was overcome by including plenty of drawers in the design as well as a rotating corner unit and a hidden appliance cabinet to keep the kitchen clutter-free. The kitchen is now a bright, open space where more than one cook can work at the same time, with an ideal entertaining area.
