This inspired kitchen and laundry renovation by The Kitchen Factory was only a small part of a much larger project undertaken by the owners of this Federation-style home in Mount Lawley
All the homeowners’ special requests — such as maximum storage, optimum bench space and an ergonomic and aesthetically pleasing layout — were taken into account and incorporated into this impressive design.
It was imperative for the designer to obtain a clear understanding and feel for the overall look the client hoped to achieve to complement the style and age of their family home. Particular attention to detail was achieved after hours of consultation and careful planning, with a selection of high-quality finishes and textures chosen to enhance the design.
The kitchen boasts two different benchtop finishes. Bianco Romano granite was used for the stove and dresser area while solid jarrah was utilised for the main island bench.
Wanting to add a different texture to the mix, the client hand-selected timber to make the 80mm-thick chopping block that sits to the left of the double butler’s sink.
Ornate doors with bolection moulds, farm-style grooves and a finish of two-pack lacquer combined with clever choice of handles completes the kitchen’s distinct look.The turned posts on the four corners of the island continue this “grand” feeling.
A large chimney canopy dominates the main cooking wall while fixtures including Blumotion Tandem soft-close runners, a pull-out tea towel rail and unit for bottles and spices have been integrated into the design to ensure the kitchen runs at the height of efficiency.
The everyday pantry is fitted with an automatic light activated by the opening and closing of the door, a clear pull-out shelf below the built-in coffee machine offers additional bench space and a perforated metal drawer keeps vegetables crisp.
The laundry also blends with the quality and style of the rest of the home. Opting for a slightly different colour scheme to the kitchen, the space features matching solid jarrah benchtops to ensure the room’s aesthetics match the level of its superb function.
This kitchen and laundry renovation is a typical example of the immense effort and expertise The Kitchen Factory puts into every project.
