A drab kitchen is transformed into a modern Hampton-style makeover with chic country appeal
“These homeowners had been living with the dark timber of their late-1970s kitchen for far too long. They were ready for something completely different so we gave the kitchen a modern Hampton-style makeover with chic country appeal. The design enhances the California bungalow home and is a huge improvement on the old extension. Our refurbishment includes a new buffet unit, new doors and windows and a new blackbutt timber floor.
The sink is in the same location but we reconfigured the layout to make the Westinghouse cooker, with overhead display cupboards and mantle, the centrepiece of the kitchen. We incorporated a tall pull-out pantry, storage for small appliances and extended the bench into the dining area to create a peninsula island. The increased storage and workspace makes for a more interactive kitchen than the old U-shaped one and is perfect for when the owners’ adult children come to visit.”
