It can be a conundrum for a designer how to create a kitchen with the wow factor while not detracting from the picturesque country views beyond.

For Kira Gray of Fyfe Kitchens, the solution for this house was a contemporary design, with a mix of light and dark cabinetry that doesn't overwhelm the space visually.

"Introducing a warm espresso colour to the front of the island and the glass splashback provides a little punch, yet the creamy-white cabinets ensure the kitchen doesn't dominate," says the designer. "Narrow stainless steel legs on the island also help to lighten the effect and keep the kitchen looking spacious."

Negative detailing was provided in the form of stainless steel trim beneath the tan granite benchtops. Stainless steel also appears on the toekicks and appliances and in an outdoor kitchen.

Kira Gray says functionality has been addressed in many ways.

"The kitchen has split dishwashers, concealed bins and numerous easy-glide drawers with all the bells and whistles," she says. "There is also a butler's pantry with an additional work station."
