Classic kitchen with perfect proportions


A dramatic and classic kitchen design is enhanced with well-thought out space and quality materials

“This traditional kitchen balances open space and intricate detailing in perfect proportions. A large bay window floods the room with natural light and views of the garden, which can be enjoyed all the way from the sink to the breakfast bench. Custom cabinets with full-inset doors and drawers feature a satin finish accented with elegant porcelain handles that act like jewellery.

Flecks of gold that glint in the luxurious granite benchtops perfectly complement the tiled floor. But the spectacular custommade surround is the real showstopper. Stretching tall and wide, it puts the cooktop at the heart of the kitchen. The tiled backsplash creates subtle interest in the form of a single line, visually expanding the area.

Two glass-front cabinets act as bookends that surround for balance and visual interest. Together with a smattering of alcoves, they allow the owners’ personal style to shine through, while also keeping the space light and airy. Small appliances wait in a niche behind a roller shutter, and an abundance of storage throughout the kitchen ensures the space remains clutter-free. A luxurious light feature adds a surprising touch of dazzle to complete the space.”
