“Drama and glamour were must-have elements in this new kitchen. Created as part of a substantial home extension, the homeowners wanted a kitchen that offered ample entertainment areas while fulfilling the practical needs of preparing and cooking the family’s meals.
The materials and colours had to be considered carefully to create a beautiful work zone that filled the large open space while providing a functional layout. Three islands and two rear wall runs characterise the space, featuring Staron® Solid Surfaces throughout. The central hub consists of a circular table with a Staron® tabletop that is backlit to create a glowing feature. Allure and a sense of opulence are achieved by the use of an oversized pendant light that hovers above the table. The adjoining island units snugly surround the table with their curved form, drawing your eyes towards this central feature. Designed for subtle practicality, the cooktop and cleaning zones are concealed behind joinery, also bringing your attention to the table area — the focal point within the large space. Being big entertainers, the clients required a benchtop that would be durable and generate impact; Staron® Solid Surfaces was the perfect solution for this project as we were able to provide large island tops with no open joins. The illuminative nature of Staron® also enhances the feature table. The Ocean View colour was selected for its texture and warm tones to complement the striking timber veneer and copper accents. The end result is one of glowing glamour that brings different materials together in perfect harmony.”

EXPERT TIP: Accentuate the space with a carefully chosen benchtop that will tie the room together.
We love the repeated use of the Ocean View surface by Staron®.
