Many kitchens are designed with a limited footprint. This space from Sensational Kitchens maximises the available square metreage by combining clever layout with high-tech cabinetry.
The owners of this house wanted to update their kitchen with a contemporary aesthetic and more room to suit their family of four. This was achieved by combining brilliant blue cabinetry with a fierce white backdrop and lots of natural light thanks to the floor-to-ceiling window to one side.
An open-plan design makes this kitchen feel like part of the living and dining areas it’s sectioned onto. This ensures the space feels larger than it actually is, while also allowing for a true hub to form in the centre of the house. In a nod to the home’s heritage, shiplapping was chosen to connect the modern kitchen to the history of the old building. Timber accents also pay tribute to the world around us and add to the room’s overall design style.
Functionality was key for the new owners. Maximum use of space was achieved with a narrow spice cabinet that has an appliance cabinet hidden behind it. Both sides of the island can be used for storage, under-bench seating and display, with a feature area that allows the owners to really add that personal touch.
