The existing kitchen in this Taylors Hill home was outdated. The family wanted a kitchen renovation that would modernise their home adding a touch of luxury. The kitchen lacked bench prep space and the clients disliked the angled cabinetry leading to the adjoining lounge area.
The clients have many grandchildren and they wanted space where they could sit at the island bench while grandma cooked in the kitchen.
During discussions with Mary, Kitchen Designer from Richmond the brief was agreed. Increase the island bench and add extra cabinetry to create a classic u-shaped kitchen. This would provide better functionality and form to the kitchen space.
The key to this design is the larger island bench increasing not only bench space but also additional cabinetry in front of the island bench. The overhang of the benchtop creates form and perfect to pop the breakfast bar stools for the grandkids.
The tall cabinetry on the side has been replaced to create additional pantry storage that is now fully functional and adds form to the design.
The Qualia white matt laminate style cabinetry was chosen to create a modern look whilst providing a luxurious feel. Along with the YDL Acqua Mare benchtops add the luxurious look, whilst the grey splashbacks draw the cabinetry and benchtops together. The soft touches of black lighting and powerpoints further add to the luxury.
The end result is a modern yet luxurious space whilst increasing benchtop space, functionality and the clients are delighted.
This kitchen renovation in Taylors Hill is located 22km north-west of the Melbourne CBD. It is an area where renovations are now required with this suburb first developed in 2003.
