Kitchen Renovation Croydon Hills

This new kitchen, located in Croydon Hills, northeast of Melbourne is one of our more recent Kitchen projects. In dire need of a kitchen update, the clients of this family home visited Zesta Kitchens Nunawading to discuss their options.  Our talented Kitchen Designer, Paul Farrugia, was delighted to be part of this design. The end result was a big improvement. The brief from the clients was to have a brighter and lighter space.  It needed to be a place where family and friends could pull up a chair to chat while the chef whizzed up a delightful meal.  With this in mind, Paul recommended the Qualia White Gloss cabinetry to help reflect more light into the kitchen. The slimline handles worked well with both the cabinetry and the stainless steel appliances. The beautiful YDL Semento benchtops enhance the grey and white hexagonal backdrop. There are so many things to love [...]

Cheltenham Kitchen Transformation

One of our latest Kitchen Renovations was this beautiful contemporary Cheltenham home that was in desperate need of some aesthetic changes. Old, tired kitchen prior to Kitchen Renovation. Although the old kitchen was practical and spacious it was disliked because of drawers and doors that no longer closed and small old handles. The real sticking point was the pale green colour and the old fashioned handles and laminate benchtops. The clients dream and inspiration of their future renovation was to create an ultra modern interior with large open space leading to the adjoining dining room. A major key was storage and loads of it. The design created by Andreas at Cheltenham was bold featuring the warmth of the Hampton style white kitchen matched with Caesarstone Organic White benchtops. Matching grey cabinetry adjoining and adding soft grey bar back and dining chairs has created a feeling of complete luxury, [...]

Before and After Kitchen Renovation – Richmond Apartment

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. Before Kitchen Renovation [...]

Glen Waverley Kitchen Renovation

This Glen Waverley kitchen renovation was well overdue for an overhaul.  The previous layout lacked flow and functionality, and it was difficult to reach spices when cooking for their family banquets. It was important that the kitchen blended well into the adjoining dining room and relaxed living spaces. The clients not only wanted practical, easy to reach storage but also wanted to make a bold statement using black in their kitchen. The aim was to create a feeling of indulgence whilst ensuring that every detail was well thought out and could handle the frequent banquets that are held in this family home. The designer knew that very few kitchens can accommodate an all black kitchen. With the client wanting a bright open space, the design encapsulated black overhead cabinets with a black sink to make a statement while using lighter colours on the island bench and splashback to achieve the [...]
