This clean modern space makes a perfect kitchen for the whole family.
“The owners wanted to revitalise the dated kitchen in their family home. My brief was to improve the work and preparation zones, and incorporate clean, minimal lines while adding elements of texture and warmth. The owners also desired new and innovative appliances. The kitchen was repositioned to make the space a central hub for family living and entertaining; it uses a U-shape layout with an island to allow for better flow between the kitchen, dining and living areas. Highly functional and uncluttered, the kitchen features ample bench space and storage. Everything has its own place thanks to innovative storage and corner cabinet solutions, wide soft-close drawers and a hidden bi-fold appliance cupboard. At the rear of the kitchen, a timber panel splashback finished with Starphire toughened glass is framed by a wall of cabinetry that adds warmth and a point of focus to the fresh white kitchen. Two 60cm Siemens ovens have been added to cater for large family gatherings while an undermount Schweigen rangehood with an externally mounted motor offers a clean, uncluttered look and whisper-quiet extraction.”

A U-shaped kitchen provides plenty of storage and workspace for the home chef.
The striking timber-look splashback. Notice how it ties in with the island’s matching drawer fronts.
