One order of a dreamy kitchen perfect for a bustling young family and complete with the most gorgeous blue and white palette? Yes, please.
The brief for this project, part of a complete facelift and extension of a 1940s house, was to create a functional and fun home that is full of life. The owner is an outgoing mother of three young children who wanted the design to reflect her personality and suit her busy family lifestyle. Zavie Creative was engaged to design the layout of the residence including the joinery design, and selecting the fixtures, finishes, furniture and decorative lighting.
When the search for the benchtop, splashback and sink materials began, consideration was given to the family’s lifestyle requirements and Staron® Solid Surfaces was selected. Staron® offers a hardwearing, easy-to-maintain and durable surface that is suitable for a busy family home. The material is aesthetically beautiful and has the performance benefits of a premium solid surface.
We love: the beachy feel of weatherboards and a blue-and-white colour scheme.
Staron® is hygienic, repairable, resists stains and has a monolithic nature. The joining properties of Staron® eliminate any dirt-trapping crevices with no open joins so the surface starts at the splashback, continues to the benchtop and flows into the sink in one continuous surface. In this home, the surface has also been extended to the butler’s pantry benchtop, splashback and sink, laundry benchtop and splashback as well as the alfresco kitchen benchtop.
The warmth of the neutral benchtop colour complements the V-groove cabinetry that brings character and texture to the design. The timber floors add another warm element, while the contemporary feature lighting over the kitchen island lends a modern touch. The continuation of materials in the different spaces creates a feeling of unity and cohesion throughout the house.
The end result is a functional family home that is warm, inviting and oozes personality.
