Raw renovation – Germancraft Cabinets


Without altering the old kitchen’s footprint, plumbing or electrics, this bright and quirky renovation has enlivened the home’s eating space. By retaining and accentuating existing features, a unique and character-filled kitchen has been configured.

White Shaker-style cabinetry and drawers brighten a once dark space, and together with the feature blue overhead cupboards, they work with existing warm rustic tiles and window framing to create a modern Mediterranean aesthetic. Nostalgic handles root the new in the old, and nicely offset the contemporary tech. A six-burner ILVE cooktop is perfect for a culinary enthusiast, while a Schweigen rangehood built into a shelf of odeon oak injects an element of style to the space.

Like the Quantum Quartz benchtop, the charcoal-speckled splashback tiles are both practical and pretty. Hidden behind this kitchen’s quaint country-style cabinetry are Blum soft-close and Antaro doors, a Häfele pull-out bin drawer system and an appliance cupboard to functionalise and declutter the room. A provincial island bench ties everything together, bringing light and personality to the centre of this kitchen.
