“Oozing French provincial appeal, this kitchen is as decorative and pretty as it is functional. A stark comparison to the previous dark timber-heavy space, which had no windows and limited storage, this new kitchen shines and ties in with the rest of the house.
As the previous kitchen could not be extended, it was important to incorporate the classic elements of a French provincial design into the space. The statement island bench features turned posts and protruding kickboards, the cooktop has a delicate mantelpiece and a glass china display cabinet graces the benchtop wall space. To open up the room and make it appear larger, light paint colours were chosen and we removed the raised servery that blocked off the room. We loved how this changed the space, allowing the beautiful island to take centre stage in both the rooms, which are now linked together. Maximising storage was made simple by utilising drawers rather than cupboards, as they fit 30 per cent more contents than cupboards and are more easily accessible. We worked to achieve the kitchen of the homeowner’s dreams, creating a space that exudes elegance and sophistication from the choice of stone through to the decorative columns and glass display cabinets.”

EXPERT TIP: Make the most of your space with drawers — a great storage option that offers easy accessibility and a more space-efficient design.
We love the antique look of the pendant lights.
