If you want something done right, you should do it yourself.

This was certainly the case for the owner of this kitchen. In need of a space with lots of work surfaces and plenty of storage solutions, the owner decided to custom-make her own kitchen with Formica® Kit Solutions packages to guarantee it turned out exactly the way she envisaged. The owner selected materials, including Formica® vinyl gloss doors in Snowdrift and benchtops in Formica® Blackstone laminate, from Brumby’s Home Timber & Hardware, and set about incorporating them into a stylish, workable design.

To ensure the space was used to its fullest potential, all the main appliances were positioned in a triangular shape so the essential cooking tools were located within easy reach of each other. A handy appliance cupboard was installed next to the refrigerator to conceal the toaster, kettle and microwave, and a collection of condiments, and keep the gorgeous Blackstone laminate benchtops free of unnecessary clutter.

The dramatic black and white colour scheme is illuminated by an abundance of natural light, which enhances the roomy dimensions and highlights the kitchen’s quality materials. From classic neutrals to more contemporary looks, Formica® Kit Solutions has a design to suit anyone’s taste and budget. And the company’s cam lock system means with a simple twist of a screwdriver, the components quickly and securely lock together.
