“The clients wanted a large open kitchen and living area — an inviting space to relax. The existing floorboards in each room were matched to complete the sense of flow and a breakfast bar replaced a dividing wall between the two rooms. As a transitional feature, the breakfast bar needed to be functional and serve as an entertaining and informal dining solution. Display shelving on one side allows decorative touches and wide drawers on the other meet practical requirements. The new kitchen features plenty of drawer storage, including an appliance cabinet with bi-fold doors, and the base cupboards next to the under-bench oven are fitted with oil, sauce and spice drawers for easy-access during cooking. The laid-back, modern styling of this kitchen perfectly complements the home’s natural environment.” Designer: Lindsay Williams for the Mint Kitchen Group
