We were tasked with transforming a functional kitchen into a contemporary statement. The clients were looking for a kitchen that oozed ‘form and function’; one that worked well with the contemporary style of their home.
The layout of the adjoining living space placed some constraints on the boundaries of the new kitchen – it could not stretch beyond the existing kitchen’s footprint. However, the designers overcame this by suggesting a ‘gully-style’ kitchen; a hybrid of the traditional galley style and the popular ‘U’-shaped choice. Doing so added an extra wall of cabinetry, providing greater storage above and below the benchtops.
Bright white finishes create a fresh, clean and uncluttered atmosphere. The Laminex Polar White cabinetry is complemented by a 12mm Bone White Essastone benchtop and the diamond format splashback tiles add a textural element to this kitchen.
The clients specified a minimalist look. This was achieved by removing overhanging benchtops to streamline the effect; offering strong, clean lines. Push-to-open, handle less cupboards and drawers add to the crisp, minimalism of this space. The white on white finishes create a contemporary look, with ingenious Blum electronic opening systems and clever storage concepts, optimising both space and function in this room.
