A clean palette: small kitchen design

Once a dark and outdated space, this kitchen now exudes life and colour. The new design features clever use of space as well as a clean and light colour scheme much better suited to the compact kitchen. The island is the hub of the space and features soft-close drawers, integrated microwave and hidden powerpoints as well as a built-in wine rack, perfectly positioned for grabbing a bottle when friends are over for dinner. Colour and texture have been beautifully incorporated throughout this kitchen, with oak timber laminate cupboards as a feature, white gloss for the rest and concrete-look benchtops designed to bring a modern, contemporary feel. The result is a space that is incredibly functional and emanates individuality and style.

Black and white small kitchen design

This design is contemporary and chic, bringing a dated '80s kitchen into the contemporary world with effortlessly cool ergonomic and practical design. Starting with the use of Blum’s Servo-Drive to create pull-out drawer and pantry systems, this innovative handle-free and seamless design is continued with the addition of stainless-steel kickboards and Miele appliances as well as a Franke sink and taps which add to the contemporary design of the kitchen. Fusing black with silver edging, the colour scheme is sophisticated and on-trend, whilst also being imaginative and unique. The combination of the black feature front of the island and the stone-grey tiles that complement the bench result in a complete transformation, turning drab to fab.

Small Scandinavian kitchen style

Sleek, clean and minimalistic with light timber veneer features and glossy surfaces, this Scandinavian inspired kitchen demonstrates a fantastic use of space. Although relatively small in size, innovative space-saving ideas were cleverly employed to maximise the available space, such as an abundance of timber veneer drawers with handle-free extrusion. The crisp, glossy white kitchen is also filled with plenty of special design features such as 80mm-thick Amerind sandblasted oak timber veneer end panels, Calacatta marble splashbacks and polished concrete floors, which also accentuate the modern look. The result is a fantastic looking kitchen that is very user-friendly for a smaller-sized house.

Beach bliss: Bondi kitchen transformation

Ultra-modern and minimalistic, with crisp white lines and a gorgeous ocean view, this kitchen has undergone a magnificent transformation. Embracing the minimalist look, toughened glass front doors with no visible frame were used throughout the kitchen. Surprisingly a resilient material, the use of glass adds depth to the cabinet doors, whilst also reflecting the light, creating a transparent wall, which, during some parts of the day, reflects the entire beach on the translucent doors giving the tiny 5m x 4m room an incredible sense of space.
