One of our recent Zesta Kitchens Kitchen Renovations was this sophisticated apartment in the heart of Richmond created for Shannon and Chris Tremain.  Chris currently plays cricket for Australia and is often travelling with the Victorian Cricket Team so Shannon set about creating her dream space.  After meeting Mary Maksemos (Designer) at the Richmond showroom and subsequent in-home consultation, the need for a kitchen that had increased functionality and better utilisation of storage was key.  This turned out to be a true testament to a well designed kitchen that is now fully functional, soft and inviting.

As seen in the photographs below, the previous layout lacked the integration of the dining and living space adjoining. It was imperative that the new design allow room for ease of movement and create a natural flow with additional bench and storage space.

The Tremain’s brief was therefore quite simple – better flow and increased storage capacity for their inner city Apartment. Following discussions, the design was aimed at creating a feeling of sophistication, exceptional details and better flow for ease of cooking. Careful thought and design was required by the Richmond Designer with the limited space available.

The stunning result is a new kitchen that is bright, open, increased storage as well as bench space. Shannon adores the fresh Hampton door and loves the black shell handles which we think is the perfect addition to the kitchen cabinetry.

The Caesarstone Turbine Grey benchtops create the perfect accompaniment to the white Hampton cabinetry and stainless-steel appliances. The kitchen has a luxurious as well as great flow and functionality for cooking.

With the knowledge that the clients enjoy getting together with their friends on their Inner City balcony on a warm summer’s evening, the addition of the wine fridge and cellar was the perfect finishing touch to this design.

This open plan kitchen in this Richmond apartment has now created a welcome addition – striking, yet extremely practical and now easy to create culinary delights!
