This open-plan classic kitchen design is not only functional but elegant too.
“This open-plan kitchen is a sophisticated blend of classic French provincial details and modern integrated storage solutions. It is the centrepiece of the family home and overlooks the living area so it’s important to keep the kitchen free of clutter. Our aim was to provide the homeowners with an abundance of storage and a luxurious amount of bench space. The colonial cream granite adds texture and colour to the design and the corbels, fluted posts and rondels make the island bench stand out as a beautiful piece of joinery. Other mouldings were selected to blend with the period features of the home. The cooking zone is also defined by the Belling oven and mantel and is offset by the internally-illuminated display cupboards and under-cabinet lighting. The pendant light adds a final touch of traditional elegance to what is otherwise a conveniently-modern kitchen.”

Expert tip: Consider the island bench as a piece of furniture.
We love: The elegant simplicity of restrained detail.
