Natural connections and efficient cabinetry design can create a warm, uncluttered kitchen.

The brief to Yellowfox designer Peta Davy for this project was to open up the top-floor living spaces and create a kitchen that brings the family together in the shared space.

Key approaches to the new design included bringing a sense of balance across the kitchen, banishing cooking mess from sight, and creating a relaxed, natural ambience, says Davy.

Designed by interiors specialist Yellowfox and built by Neo Design, this kitchen and dining area achieve an inviting air. Natural surfaces and an uncluttered feel both play their part.

To achieve this, the designer specified rich wood veneer cabinetry for both the south wall and above the range on the west wall, which draws the room together. The bank of cabinets includes a concealed pantry that offers extra storage and a place to keep prepping out of sight.

The oven takes centre stage and is flanked on both sides with a low-upkeep white engineered stone benchtop. The glass splashback is matched to the walls for a seamless look.

The generous island is a feature of the space. This houses a wine fridge for entertaining. The vein in the waterfall granite benchtop echoes the waters of the Waitemata seen from the deck.

This kitchen includes opaque glass sliders that conceal everything from a coffee machine to a television set.

For variety, the cabinetry on the east wall is in a white two-pack finish and opaque glass. This houses the coffee machine, a small sink for clean-up and a television a convenient family drawcard. This cabinetry also accommodates crockery and glassware, and is lit with LED strips that add an ethereal glow in the evenings.
