This modern, functional space is a far cry from the home’s original ‘80s kitchen. Custom built in the Inset Kitchens factory to reflect the homeowners’ requests, the kitchen was designed to bring a touch of modernity to this section of the home.
The kitchen was bespoke built with added height to accommodate the home’s high ceilings. The existing built-in plaster bulkheads and built-in pantry were removed during the renovation, and plaster cornices were custom-made to match existing cornices featured throughout the home.
Increased functionality and extra storage space were high on the homeowners’ wish list prior to the renovation, so the kitchen was designed accordingly.
The kitchen’s island features an extra-thick edge to the bench on the side visible from outside the kitchen to give a luxurious look. A large refrigerator was placed into a substantially deep alcove for a flush finish, and a spacious butler’s pantry was worked into the right rear corner of the kitchen to provide an additional work zone for smaller appliances.
As this room has a lot of natural light, matt and satin finishes were used throughout to avoid too much glare. The wooden floors create an interesting contrast against the predominantly white furniture, while ensuring the space blends seamlessly with the adjoining open-plan living area.
