So you’re renovating your home and have even extended at the rear to make more space for a larger, more functional entertainer’s kitchen. Your next important step is to engage a talented professional designer to make sure that, after the groundwork, your new kitchen really delivers.

Such was the case for this stand-out kitchen by award-winning kitchen designer Kira Gray.

“The existing kitchen had been cramped and rather dark,” says Gray. “In its place, the owners wanted a light-filled kitchen with great visual impact and up-to-the-minute functionality.”

In response, the designer created a spacious, eye-catching kitchen, with a central island and upper cabinetry in stained American white oak. The wood surfaces tone in with the flooring and contrast the white under-counter cabinetry and stainless steel appliances. Also in harmony are the slender, ultra-compact surface benchtops.

However, the starring surface in the design is the iridescent, 3D geometric tile splashback.

The cabinetry is user-friendly thanks to high-tech Hafele fittings. The upper cabinets fold up at a touch, while pushing a small button draws them closed. There is also a corner carousel to bring more storage to a hard-to-reach, otherwise wasted area, while a sliding door pantry beside the main fridge has a handy internal workbench.

“Running the wood grain and upper cabinet folds horizontally gives the kitchen a sense of having even more space,” says Gray. “Modern matching pendants complete the design picture.”
