“The previous kitchen in this Sunshine Coast hinterland home was very dark and had an old country feel. The owner had made a lot of changes to the outside appearance of the home and felt the original kitchen no longer held its place. We decided the space needed a fresh approach. The new kitchen needed to reflect the owners’ unique personality so an area was created that is breathtaking due to its distinctive design. One of the main design features to consider in this masterpiece are the stunning Latinum granite benchtops, which are rich in colour and diverse in pattern. The stone balances the use of white two-pack doors and panels that reflect the natural sunlight in the home. A second key feature is the three-sided servery island, designed to complement the layout of the home. One side greets guests approaching from the base of the three-storey home, the second side faces the dining area, and the third side takes in the sweeping views of the hinterland and the Pacific Ocean. The three-sided bench could have easily been converted to a straight bench but this would not have suited the home’s aspect or the owner. The angles generate interest in this large kitchen and the taller benchtops and joinery help complement the masculinity of the home. The kitchen is sleek and maintains clean lines with the use of integrated appliances. The fridge and freezer are well concealed and are located adjacent to the large servery bench for easy cooking. The Blum soft-close corner drawer unit is a great use of the usually lost space of the corner cupboard and is located below a large appliance cupboard that houses most of the bulky kitchen appliances. The buffet unit is built into a wall cavity on the far left of the kitchen. With internal lighting, glass doors and mirror backs, this cupboard is a dramatic element and is not only elegant, but also provides practical storage. The kitchen is fitted with the latest up-to-the-minute internal technology, while the exterior reflects the simplicity it needs to remain a design classic for years to come.”
