Stylish and practical, the centre piece of this stunning kitchen is the dramatic island bench
“Proving that family-friendly doesn’t have to be understated, this lush kitchen is equal parts stylish and practical. The eye is instantly drawn to the dramatic island bench, with a mix of marble, timber and stainless steel creating an elegant look with an industrial twist.
The combination of such durable materials also makes this kitchen incredibly easy to clean, an essential for the owner’s growing family. The breakfast bar adds a social element to the zone, while the open-plan layout maximises every centimetre of space.
The proximity to the outdoor entertaining area cleverly brings the outside in, flooding the room with natural light and creating a sense of airiness and vibrancy. Matte black appliances reaffirm the element of modish sophistication, only being upstaged by the unique design of the tubular Smeg rangehood.
Abundant storage was also a major design consideration, with the Polytec cabinetry stylishly hiding all the kitchen essentials.”
