Old meets new in this classic kitchen by Smith and Smith, where all elements complement each other perfectly.
The joinery was paramount in turning this single-fronted Victorian home with small separate rooms into a spacious and grand open-plan entertainer’s dream. Centre stage as you enter the rear living area, the kitchen blends seamlessly with its surrounds, yet stands proud as the focal point for family living and entertaining.
The classic style of the Shaker panel doors works perfectly with the cutting-edge Neolith Estatuario stone on the island and splashback, as well as the industrial accents of the Antique Black hardware, wrought-iron window panes, chunky pendant lights and rustic stools. The end panels were designed to mimic the internal barn doors of the pantry. A small yet very functional walk-in butler’s pantry, all in the same high-quality finishes as the kitchen, increases the kitchen footprint dramatically.
Storage space was key, so cabinetry was built in under the stairs, designed to mirror the panelling. This kitchen’s classic overtones, paired with its industrial edge, succeed in creating an aesthetic perfect for both entertaining and day-to-day family life.
