Custom kitchen creation



When designing a kitchen to suit a family, it’s important that the needs of all users are taken into consideration. This was the challenge facing designer Amanda Margetts from Ikal Kitchens when she approached the layout of this new space.

The owners particularly wanted to ensure that the kitchen included a casual seating area that could cater for the whole family as well as a design that would soften the edge of the kitchen. To meet these requirements, Amanda has included a breakfast bar with plenty of room as well as a curved back panel that blurs the edge of the kitchen and removes any hard angles that are normally created by this type of inclusion.

“The old kitchen was very dark and bland,” says Amanda, “and did not suit the rest of the home.” So she decided to make use of a variety of interesting finishes and textures to give the kitchen its own identity and make a better fit with this family home. Amanda was lucky to work closely with the homeowner in the design of this new space, with a number of options considered before the final layout and shape were chosen.

Customised doors are the main feature of the space and immediately draw the eye. Both the profile and the stain were customised to meet this owner’s needs and the result, as you can see, is simply stunning.

Ikal Kitchens paid particular attention to the finer details in this kitchen, as befitting a custom-designed space, and the family just loves it!
