Contemporary classic: an old kitchen made new

Complete Kitchens gave this old kitchen a makeover, resulting in a fresh new look


“Previously, this kitchen was worn-out, dated and in need of a major overhaul. As it had dark benchtops and splashbacks, it felt small, and fixtures such as the handles did nothing to help. However, the layout was good, so we based our plans for a new, streamlined design around this, which also allowed the owner to keep the existing terracotta flooring.

A key feature is the use of state-of-the-art internal hardware such as electronic drawers. These ensure that drawers are not left open and help the owner, who often entertains, cook with ease in a busy household. Similarly, integrated appliances enhance the futuristic look, while a touch of luxury was maintained with the use of chunky Calacatta marble for the benchtops, which, with waterfall ends, add a grand statement. Integration between the kitchen and living area was important, so we designed cabinets to bring both rooms together. A bigger pantry space as well as a dedicated recycling area completed this impressive project.”
