Alby Turner and Son creates harmony in this gorgeous white kitchen design
“One of the most important rules when designing a kitchen is to make sure that there is vertical and horizontal alignment in the cabinetry and other features. This creates harmony and an attention to detail that unifies all elements of the kitchen. In this case, the breakfast bar returns lines up with both the island and the sink cupboard. All the drawers line up and the height of the glass cabinets is consistent across both walls. The open shelf and ‘bridge’ detail above the windows connects the cabinets on the left and right. The cabinet doors and mouldings reflect the heritage of the home along with the French provincial-style mantel we created, which frames the stove recess beautifully, making a real feature of it. We completely rebuilt the stove recess by removing the chimney to conceal the rangehood and widening it to fit the large free-standing oven. The brick pattern of the tiles completes the look. While it’s a brand new build, it has all the authentic charm of yesteryear.”
Designer: Len Drexler for Alby Turner & Son Kitchens
EXPERT TIP: Aligning horizontal and vertical lines brings all elements of a kitchen together.
We love: how the kitchen’s position has been used to get the most natural light possible.
