Family hub: galley-style kitchen


This stunning kitchen won the prestigious SA Kitchen Designer of the Year award at the 2015 KBDi Awards

“Once an awkward, dark and outdated space, this kitchen has been completely transformed into a breathtaking family hub. With their kitchen, living and dining areas split across four separate rooms, the owners wanted one unified space that would be easy to live in. Removing the internal walls and adding a large, open doorway has created a light-filled, open space. Spanning the entire upper level, the new galley-style kitchen comprises three distinct areas. To one side, a luxuriously long bench provides a spacious clean-up and preparation area, cleverly concealed by a Laminex feature panel.

At the other end of this bench, a separate study and eating zone doubles as a place for entertaining, complete with a wine fridge. On the back bench, there is a distinctive cooking area with even more bench space. Ample storage is a must for any family, so we added a concealed appliance area, consumables pantry and extended tall cabinetry to hide everyday clutter. From the smoky, mirrored splashback to the clean, white cabinetry, every element of the space is sleek and contemporary.

Häfele fittings and LED lighting ensure each area is highly functional. Recessed grip handles in black, along with the kickboards, accentuate the length of the space, which draws the eye down to the beautiful view. The result is a streamlined and modern kitchen that’s also an award-winning design.”
