Why White Kitchens Are Still the Most Popular Colour

Kitchen colour trends come and go, but the white kitchen always reigns supreme. From the floors to drawers and upper cabinetry, white continues to enjoy top ranking as being the most preferred overall colour for a kitchen in Melbourne.

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, [...]

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 [...]
