“The space available to me for this kitchen renovation was bright, large and long. The existing kitchen had timber cladding everywhere and was closed off in a U shape. The clients wanted an open and modern kitchen that would work for their busy family and as an area to entertain. But they didn’t want it to look like a typical kitchen and, at first glance, you can’t really tell that it is. From the kitchen, you can see the garden and also the stone wall feature of the sunken lounge room. I wanted the kitchen materials to convey that same natural feel, so I used marble and a beautiful textured dark wood. The different marble colours and the marble framing either side of the dark cabinets provide contrast. I kept the cladding on the ceiling, as timber is used throughout the home and it doesn’t clash with the cabinets. The large marble block islands break up the space and look fantastic. Using mirrors on the drop-down island emphasises the floor and makes the island appear to be sitting into the marble. The kitchen’s utility areas are concentrated, so guests will not be in the way of cooking or preparation. It’s a thoroughly modern kitchen that still manages a welcoming and organic feel.”
