A brand new open plan kitchen, by A-Plan Kitchens, is the talking point of this home.


A-Plan Kitchens Designs Renovations

When the owners of this gorgeous new Sydney home embarked on a total house renovation, they began with a blank canvas for the kitchen. The brief to designer Sue Terley from A-Plan Kitchens was to create a simple but elegant kitchen that would fit seamlessly into a large living/dining space while accommodating a pantry and laundry behind.

The finished result exceeded the brief — it’s a stunning example of Australia’s indoor/outdoor lifestyle.

The new kitchen is the perfect space to entertain family and friends; it has every amenity for the preparation of daily meals or the demands of the most extravagant dinner party and it draws the eye to an inviting outdoor area featuring a sparkling pool, patio with barbecue and beautiful landscaped garden.

In keeping with the brief, the L-shaped design with island bench provides ample space for food preparation and a breakfast bar to seat three. A striking feature is the 70mm Calacatta marble benchtop on all surface areas while the use of Laminex veneer in Allure Oak on the sides and back of the island provides a stylish contrast. Three elegant ZTwo lighting pendants above the island add a masterful finishing touch.

The storage demands of the household are more than met by 1200mm-wide underbench drawers, floor-to-ceiling cupboards in the kitchen and adjoining laundry and open shelves in the walk-in pantry. All appliances are fully integrated with easy access to the dishwasher, cooktop, microwave and fridge.

Far from a blank canvas, the new kitchen has become the focal point of the house. It’s a place to share breakfast with the family, to rustle up a snack on the way to the pool and to entertain in style throughout the year.
