It’s easy to fall in love with this beautiful heritage kitchen design
With a warm and inviting 1930s feel, it would be the heart of any home. One of the standout features is the leadlight windows. While the homeowner was reluctant to keep them at first, they are now a favourite element of the room. Two further windows were added either side of the grand mantel to further accentuate the glazing and introduce some balance and symmetry to the design. Incorporating these windows and their distinctive style into the cabinetry could have been di icult, but thanks to some clever choices, it was achieved.
Though the space respects the home’s heritage, it also includes several contemporary additions such as a large island bench with Tasmanian blackwood timber benchtop, the feature mantle with pull-out storage, colonial glass-panelled doors with LED feature lighting, internal felt-lined timber cutlery glide above the drawers, and custom feature pull-out tea towel rail, all adding to the space’s functionality while ensuring in stays modern for years to come. The resulting style is clean and bright, with lots of room for storage in the many cabinets and the newly built butler’s pantry, a high priority for the homeowner.
