“Lastly, the owners definitely didn’t want a white kitchen – it had to have modern tone and depth through a mix of materials and textures!
”In response, Gray designed the kitchen in the centre of the addition, together with a walk-in scullery for bulk storage, which helps keep on-show surfaces clutter-free when entertaining.
“To make more room for multiple chefs, we set defined work areas, with cooking to the side wall, supported by lots of drawers and bench space.
The clean-up sink is in the large entertainer’s island, along with glass storage and a bar fridge.
“The main fridge and tall pantries are sited on the back wall for easy access from all areas.” For the modern look required, Gray introduced a subtle palette of black, white and grey.
Dark wood accents bring depth and interest.
“Howeowners’ brief met – an elegant family kitchen, ideal for entertaining,” Gray says.Contact Kira Gray, Fyfe Kitchens, phone: 027 271 4705, email: firstname.lastname@example.org, or head online: www.fyfekitchens.co.nz
