“This home’s previous kitchen, though still in good condition, was outdated and a little too beige. Although the space available was quite large, there was previously no island in the centre, decreasing the kitchen’s functionality significantly.
The homeowners made the call to renovate, opting for a unique, on-trend design. They requested a highly functional space, with matt black finishes and all the latest accessories from Blum for the drawer internals. Ensuring the new kitchen fitted in seamlessly with the home’s existing aesthetic was a design consideration that played an important role in the renovation’s end result. Prior to the renovation, the homeowners had replaced the original floors with beautiful timber boards in a herringbone pattern. The requested matt black finishes juxtapose the flooring beautifully and further timber elements were added to the space to soften the look. The island benchtop was included for optimum functionality. The gorgeous stone used for the benchtop was also wrapped around the appliance area, injecting an extra element of luxe living to the space.”

We love the sense of flow created by the use of timber and stone in various areas of the kitchen.
