Functionality and good looks go hand in hand when it comes to kitchen design and with the right products there's no need to compromise either.

The ultra-sleek kitchen in this house needed to be suitable for both day-to-day family living and entertaining, says designer Kim Duffin of Sublime Architectural Interiors.

"The kitchen needed to be able to adapt and support many functions," he says. "We consequently created a dedicated appliance pantry and breakfast zone, plus three other working zones to reduce interference between tasks."

A long island and matching perimeter cabinets feature unobtrusive Staron solid surface Quasar White drawer fronts and matching benchtops. The horizontal lines are reinforced by an architectural fly-over that accommodates lighting and two Smeg stainless steel cylindrical rangehoods.

"Compact 45cm-high Smeg Classic stainless steel ovens were chosen to create a bank of appliances with an identical design aesthetic, creating a focal point," says Duffin. "These are all positioned at an ergonomically perfect height to facilitate the preparation of the client's preferred cuisine."

The Smeg appliances in this bank are the compact microwave oven and grill, compact convection oven and microwave, compact steam oven and built-in coffee machine.

The kitchen also features the latest induction technology the Smeg induction cooktop has four heat zones, and offers fast, energy-efficient cooking.

The owners say they chose Smeg products so that the appliances could be a feature of the kitchen, and not just "an oven in the wall."

"We use the Smeg coffee machine all the time it is so easy to use, making a latte is no longer a chore."
