From dated and dowdy French provincial to thoroughly contemporary and moody – satin black cabinetry with black appliances all played a part

Designed by Mel Brown, Lux Interiors

From the kitchen/interior designers:

Our homeowners were looking to renovate their kitchen to align closer with their personalities and style, while optimising the layout and functionality. 

Previously, the kitchen reflected traditional, French provincial vibes, however, the owner wanted to portray an industrial and modern look. 

The key priorities included high-quality materials and appliances, a sleek design reflecting their style, and improved functionality and storage to allow everything to be at their fingertips while entertaining guests. 

The resulting contemporary, industrial kitchen renovation transformed the space by creating better flow, functionality and ample storage. 

The sleek design features satin black cabinetry with black appliances and flush black electrical fittings. 

This is balanced by the warmth of the bronze hardware and custom Qasair Sapphire bronze rangehood. 

The large island continues the sleek profile with its straight edges, iron black porcelain benchtop, and integrated sink. 

Additional standout components include integrated Liebherr and Gaggenau appliances, glass door cabinetry above the rangehood with strip lighting, and a functional industrial style ladder to reach the taller cabinetry while adding to the aesthetic.
