Balancing Act: A modern open plan kitchen with heritage style


Open plan yet classic period style, this new kitchen by Peter Gill is an amazing combination of modern accessible design and heritage style.

The clients’ brief was to design and build a heritage style kitchen that embodied a high quality look and feel. They also wanted the new kitchen to be very practical and easy to work in, and to add value to their home. The original kitchen was a U-shaped space with a Tasmanian oak pantry in one corner. This pantry was removed in the renovation in order to open up the space and create an expansive effect.

We love: the delicate design balance between contemporary light and space, and heritage style

The final product is open and light and maintains a heritage feel. The design integrates appliances such as the fridge and dishwasher into the actual period-style cabinetry, keeping the overall look congruent and effective. The addition of an island bar created more work space, as well as space for eating and relaxing. This kitchen is ultimately practical and period-style, definitely adding value to the home as a whole.
