Modern kitchens have become the busy social centre of the home, and their design needs to reflect this standing.

This was one of the motivating factors behind the design of this new kitchen by Arcadia Joinery. Project manager Fred Jing says the kitchen needed to be sleek, distinctive and easy to maintain, with clutter hidden from view.

To this end, Arcadia Joinery designed a galley-style kitchen with a scullery, a long island, and overhead cabinets in dark-stained oak veneer. A tall bank of cabinets housing the oven tower, pantry and refrigerator is gloss lacquered in white, with a buffed finish, and framed with a dark-stained trunk veneer scriber panel. This helps to define the kitchen within the large, open-plan living space.

The cabinets in this kitchen by Arcadia Joinery are a mix of crown cut, dark-stained oak veneer and white gloss lacquer with a buffed finish. Dark-stained timber veneer also frames the tall bank of white cabinets that houses the oven tower, pantry and refrigerator.

The clean-lined look is enhanced by invisible handles. These are mounted onto the carcass behind the doors, which can be opened by narrow recessed pulls.

Benchtops, including the waterfall island top, are white engineered stone, chosen to match the cabinets. These feature high-quality German hardware.

Arcadia Joinery manufactures and installs all its kitchens, which come with a five- to seven-year guarantee. Several kitchens can be viewed in the showroom.
