There’s something inherently loveable about timber elements in a kitchen. Perhaps it’s the way they connect us to nature and the world outside. Maybe it’s a throwback to days gone by, when cooking with wood was the only way to survive.
Whatever the reason, Smith & Smith Kitchens has truly showcased timber in this gorgeous room with impressive results.
Recycled floorboards were used in paneling and hidden doors. A further use of recycled timber is seen in the open shelving located on the back wall of the kitchen. These wooden elements help the room feel connected to the rest of the home thanks to the sloped timber ceiling that stretches overhead.
This recycled style adds warmth to the light industrial design theme present in the space, largely thanks to the Caesarstone concrete benches and the dull black cabinetry. Shaker-style doors are a nod to the home’s countryside setting and add a balanced contrast in the space.
Functionality was front of mind for the Smith & Smith Kitchens team when designing this room. Walls were moved, creating a new doorway for the walk-in pantry area that opened up the kitchen and allowed better access to the fridge. All walkways were widened to ensure unencumbered mobility throughout, and the ovens were raised into a tower for convenient use.
