Who says you can’t have the best of both worlds? This inviting kitchen mixes the warmth of traditional design and features, with the mod cons of today’s culinary life. This was extremely important as the owners needed a functional kitchen that would complement their gorgeous 1900s worker’s cottage.
The traditional timber on the benchtop surfaces combines with handpainted furniture-like cabinet doors to transform this kitchen back to the desired era. True to good design, these features have been cleverly integrated alongside the modern conveniences you would expect in any contemporary abode including the clever use of drawers that contain everything from a detergent rack to a stainless-steel cutlery insert and tea towel holder. Drawers throughout the kitchen contain Blumatic full-extension soft-close runners and all cabinet doors are fitted with soft-close hinges, meaning this kitchen not only looks great, it is also highly practical and safe.
The cooking area is now a feature in this previous 1980s style L-shaped, laminate kitchen. The freestanding stove, with its large canopy hood, is certainly the focal point and would leave any budding cook green with envy.
With attention to detail in every aspect, this kitchen is sure to please its owners with many years of service. From the modern cooker and accessories to the classic timber tops and butler’s sink, this kitchen is a wonderful example of classic charm.
