This small kitchen renovation was a charity renovation for Project Seven in conjunction with Norsuhome. This family were in desperate need of updated spaces to cope with their growing demands.
The family have been fostering children for Berry Street for many years. Almost overnight this family went from five to seven and space was a problem, not to mention the old kitchen and dining area!
The kitchen from the 1920’s was dark, small and lacked functionality. Enter Zesta Kitchens to transform the space into a bright, modern yet fully functional space for this family of seven.
Following discussions with NorsuHome the white Hampton kitchen was chosen to open up the space and the soft palette of Blanco Cararra Neolith benchtops was the perfect match for the kitchen space.
The dark brickwork was plastered almost immediately creating a brighter space. The addition of the free-standing island bench created additional seating for extra kids to eat, be involved in the cooking and pop up to do homework while Mum cooks a meal for the family. The island bench also ensures easy entry and exit flows around the kitchen space creating a more functional kitchen.
The natural light from the windows now allows the light to flow into the kitchen and not bounce off the dark brick tiles, and the adjoing space feels like part of the whole room instead of closed off. What was once a dark, old space has become a brighter, open one.
Another part of Project Seven was the donated Tiny Home from Soulspace Studios for the oldest member of the family. Once again, we came to the party and donated the bench cabinetry and wardrobe in a beautiful laminate from our Viva Range in Storm colour. This is the perfect addition for this eighteen year old – who wouldn’t love to hang out in this space with friends!
