Some kitchens are more about looks, others more about broad functionality – this white and wood kitchen delivers handsomely on both

From the designer:

Stepping into this kitchen, you are immediately enveloped in a cocoon of warmth and modernity. 

Installed as part of a new build, it seamlessly blends in with its surroundings while making a striking visual impact. 

With meticulous attention to detail and perfectly balanced proportions, our design is not just a showstopper – it's a haven of functionality and style, tailored to the needs of a growing family and avid entertainers.

Every element is crafted to enhance daily living with ample storage solutions, including draw storage solutions by Blum and cabinetry reaching an impressive 2.7m in height, providing extra storage and aesthetic allure.

The engineered stone benchtop and splashback by Trendstone, and classic stainless steel adorn the hob benchtop, marrying timeless elegance with a modern sensibility. 

The hidden bar with bifold hardware adds an element of surprise and seamless integration with a mirrored splashback and LED lighting.

The homeowner wanted a space that is not only visually appealing but also has a natural vibe, is family friendly, and offers a focal point for both culinary endeavours and social gatherings. 

With its expansive surface area and inviting ambiance, this kitchen welcomes family members and guests alike.

Incorporating the personal preferences of the homeowner, our design features bespoke elements that add character and charm. 

The Buddy Brass tapware and cupboard handles by Archant infuse the space with a touch of personality, reflecting the homeowner's style and taste. 

Additionally, practical considerations such as double large sinks and two large 35L rubbish bins enhance functionality and convenience, earning rave reviews from the owner for their practicality and efficiency.

In conclusion, every aspect of the space is meticulously curated to elevate everyday living. 

With its seamless blend of functionality, style, and personalised touches, our kitchen stands as a testament to the notion that beauty and practicality can indeed coexist harmoniously, enriching the lives of its inhabitants for years to come.
