This stunning home situated in Essendon has been transformed to cleverly hide the previous support beam that was an eyesore for this family.
When Mary, Richmond Designer first visited the clients in their home the timber support beam was deemed the main problem in the kitchen space. The clients wanted to know “how do I remove the support beam to create an open plan into adjoining dining and living spaces?”
To date no other Kitchen Designer had been able to design anything that worked for the client. This provided a unique challenge for Mary to solve the clients problem in their family kitchen.
As seen by opening up the space and aligning cabinetry along the hallway butting straight into the support beam means that the beam can be hidden in the wall so now you don’t even notice it.
Further designing a standalone island bench has not only provided additional storage at the front and back of the island but also opened the space for better functionality and flow.
Using Hampton style cabinetry retains the period while the white makes the space more open and bright.
By extending the cabinetry along the hallway meant there was room behind to design a Butlers Pantry for even more storage than previously.
The added update to the laundry flows well using the same cabinetry from the kitchen and Butler’s pantry. The softness of the Caesarstone Supernatural Frosty Carrina benchtops enhance the space further.
There as so many elements that our clients love – the removal of the support beam being number one followed by a Butler’s Pantry that they have never experienced before and the ease of now cooking and entertaining with so much storage space.
This project is typical of older style homes where often a support beam creates a design challenge. The design details are meticulous such as the Bianco Gloss herringbone tiling and the Franke sink that works seamlessly in this space.
There’s no doubt this Essendon project is now timeless, beautiful and well designed to flow into their living and dining room for the family to enjoy.
