With its enduring elegance and timeless appeal, this kitchen is the perfect place to entertain and socialise.
At first glance it is obvious this enchanting kitchen is the work of Dana Kitchens. The space encapsulates everything that is wonderful about Dana Kitchens’ distinctive signature style — the kitchen is a majestic masterpiece.
With its corbelled pilasters, bevelled glass features and sparkling chandeliers, the kitchen is the ultimate showpiece and on closer inspection it becomes apparent how much work has gone into the finer details.
The distinctive cross-pattern on the glazed Regency-style doors, the hand-carved timber mouldings, and the sumptuous 24-carat-gold appliqué features that are found from the floor to the ceiling are just a few examples of the intricacies that go into making this space truly beautiful.
Guests’ eyes are immediately drawn to the magnificent mantelpiece and island bench. The natural American oak timber benchtop adds a warmth and vitality to the space and, combined with ornate finishes, creates a stunning centrepiece.
In all its glory, you would never guess this showy kitchen also has incredible storage capacity. Subtle design features, such as hidden storage and a hand-turned tea towel rail, are incorporated throughout the layout to ensure the kitchen is not all good looks but remains functional too. All drawers also feature innovative full-extension stainless-steel Tandembox runners and the interior of all cabinets are furniture plywood.
The kitchen blends beautifully with the rest of the space, with Dana Kitchens’ designer Jurek Polkowski even building two complementing cabinets in oxblood and
royal blue just outside the kitchen to open up the area and form one cohesive space. KYB
