The glamour of gloss: Streamlined kitchen

A large island bench and full-height cupboards give this kitchen a streamlined look


“An abundance of natural light flows into the living and dining area of this family home, so we planned the kitchen to take full advantage of this aspect.


The island bench takes centre stage, with a generous 40mm Caesarstone Cashmere benchtop and waterfall ends with mitred corners. It features ample storage and a deep overhang for casual dining in a spacious arrangement that allows access from all sides.


At the rear bench, deep drawers and a full-height cabinet with wall oven are finished in Laminex Pesto Linea Silk, while the Smeg rangehood and recessed lighting are concealed in overhead cupboards finished in high-gloss two-pack paint.

This neutral colour palette complements the surrounding finishes in the home, while the tinted mirror splashback adds a touch of glamour. A refrigerator and small appliances are conveniently located in a generous walk-in pantry behind the kitchen.”
