This stylish kitchen uses timber for a striking look


This kitchen was designed as part of a renovation. The new design combined the dark-timber chopping block and chairs with the soft timber floors and the white cabinetry to create a harmonious yet striking appearance.

The natural light that pours in from the large windows in the living area, combined with the kitchen skylight, allows the materials to really shine. An LED strip light rebated into the underside of the upper cabinets allows extra benchtop light.

The space is ergonomic with separate cooking, preparation and washing zones, minimising the traffic throughout the space. The fronts have been custom-made to have 20mm stiles and rails instead of the standard 70mm, while the cabinet internals were made dark instead of the standard white.

There is an exceptional amount of storage space in the base cabinets, through to the tall cabinets and on to the two sets of upper cabinets, which go straight up to the ceiling.
This also creates a seamless floor-to-ceiling balance. There’s a hidden TV behind an upper cabinet to meet the clients’ request for easy entertaining.

The extra-long benchtop, custom-made chopping block, and TV all work together to create the ultimate entertaining space. The large custom-made chopping board in the island allows for easy entertaining and provides a very unique look you don’t see every day.
