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 brief.
What is not to love in this new kitchen renovation. The clients adore the mix of cabinetry especially the display of handleless cabinetry aligning in the long length creating a secondary bench space to store the platters of food before carrying to the nearby dining table. The bold statement of black cabinetry creates a striking factor without being dark, creating a bright open space.
The Caesarstone Calacatta Nuvo bench creates the perfect mix between the white and black cabinetry with the soft grey vein running seamlessly through the space. It is luxurious as well as practical topped off with a couple of stools for easy sitting and chatting at the island bench while the chefs are cooking.
As the client uses lots of spices when cooking, pull out spice racks were the ideal choice for this home. The large spice jars easily fit into the wire racks for ease of access when cooking.
