A family haven


Carrera Kitchens is not only dedicated to creating beautiful kitchens, its designers believe that the kitchen, given the right attention to detail, is priceless. This is why when given the brief of creating a statement open-plan kitchen, the team at Carrera Kitchens was full of ideas to bring this kitchen to life.

Using white two-pack gloss on the cabinet doors and the Shannon Oak sheen achieve a fresh feel that looks fantastic next to the CaesarStone benchtop.

The large amount of bench space gives the kitchen a free-flowing working area and the walk-through doors also keep within the design brief and make the room spacious and clutter-free.

You can’t help but notice how roomy this kitchen is! Carrera Kitchens has taken smaller aspects of minimalism to create a modern design that works well, as the space doesn’t feel overworked or overcrowded.

An added feature to this magnificent kitchen is Carrera’s use of shadowlines to give prominence to features in a subtle and smooth manner.

Taking a different route from regular steel handles on the cabinets, finger grips were used to enhance the kitchen’s beautiful crisp, clean lines. The cabinets scream fantasy storage, perfect for the owner and mother-of-three’s cooking utensils. Forget the sound of slamming cabinets — the soft-close drawers and cabinets are just right for this busy family.

Giving this family kitchen a pristine chic look could have been a challenge, but Carrera has implemented features such as the brushed aluminium kickboards and stainless-steel Electrolux appliances to add sophistication to an otherwise family-friendly kitchen.

DOORS AND PANELS White two-pack gloss and Polytec Createc Gloss in Shannon Oak
INTERNAL HARDWARE Soft-closing drawers
