These clients came to me unhappy with their existing kitchen which was a very tight G shape that made the space look and feel very small. We decided to change up the layout and make the space feel more open and connected to the rest of the dining/living area. The space now feels twice the size it did before, and they can both work comfortably in the kitchen without bumping into each other.
This semi-retired couple didn’t want a boring kitchen, they wanted something that reflected their eclectic personalities and created a statement within this small open-plan area. This will be their forever home so the kitchen needed to be functional and maximise storage. The old flooring was coming out and the concrete floors being polished up to give the space a much more contemporary, industrial vibe which needed to be reflected in the new kitchen. By combining cabinetry colours and injecting the warm timber tones we were able to ensure the space still felt warm and inviting.
Continuing the bench top down the waterfall end and up the splash back kept the colour palette simple and didn’t overwhelm the small area. Black strip and overlay handles were combined to complement the overall style of the kitchen and blend in with the cabinetry.
The finished product speaks for itself and my clients couldn’t be happier with the result. They love having visitors say Wow! – What a Difference.
