Kitchens are up there with my top three favourite rooms to design and I am beyond excited to see this one come together. It’s not a large space but is part of an open plan dining/family room and faces large glass doors overlooking a small courtyard that opens up to the rest of the back yard.
I wanted tonnes of storage in this house because homes built around here in the 50’s didn’t have much. I asked the Design Consultant to run the joinery the full length of the kitchen and dining room wall and they suggested incorporating a display niche at the dining end which I think is a really nice touch.
I decided to keep the colour palette fairly neutral (white) so that the new owners can accessorise in any colours they choose but tried to inject a bit of personality with a matte charcoal island bench, and marble look splashback with box canopy rangehood and suspended open shelving in timber and metal. The Kitchen/Dining/Family is a sunken living area and I’ve chosen spotted gum timber floors to separate it from the Lounge Room and also ‘warm it up’. These are some of my inspiration pics.
