This kitchen in Melbourne is a modern provincial design. With a chimney style stove area, satin two pack doors and a solid timber Island top, it stays true to the period. Modernizing this Melbourne kitchen is the Caesar Stone Snow benches and modern upright Ilve stove. Pendant lighting and the 6 panel glass doors give some finishing touches to this beautiful space.
This magnificent property in Ivanhoe demanded a kitchen that would compliment the quality of the build. We were confronted with some challenges when designing the kitchen due to the position of the walls, some of which were load bearing and not able to be moved without massive costs. The client was ecstatic with the result as you could imagine. The two pack doors and panels along with the stove/chimney area totally created using paneling gave the charm the client was after. Adding to this the Butlers style sink and old world style taps. The modern Stove still has the character required to suit the kitchen and the use of an Integrated fridge and freezer eliminate the concern of the modern appliance taking away from the rest of the kitchen.
This modern kitchen features a sleek shadow-line look which creates a very minimalistic feel to the space. The island bench is completed by two drop sides which is mirrored on the second island adjacent. The island is the work station of this kitchen with the sink and induction cook top being included on it, which meant a suspended range hood needed to be used. Ultra Finish high gloss white with a dark timber veneer feature was used.
As an Award Finalist the finishing touches of this Melbourne kitchen speaks for itself. Using quality hardware and accessories, this Melbourne kitchen is complemented with the highest quality door and bench top surfaces. Designing the splash back window brings light into the kitchen along with the ability of over head cabinets for extra storage. The walk in Butlers pantry allows the maximum use of the kitchen for work bench/preparation space. Adding the pendant lights and tasteful furnishings brings colour to complete the picture.
Removing load bearing walls to create this space in this small inner city Melbourne kitchen home completely changed this property. A once tiny pokey space is now a very open and inviting space whilst allowing us to create twice the storage than previously. Using very earthy colours that appealed to the multitude with the Caesar Stone Latte Bench top with waterfall ends and gloss Alabaster doors/drawers. Creating a splash of colour was the glass splash back and cleverly positioned under cabinet down lights. A kitchen renovation in Melbourne that truly created added benefits to the property both in lifestyle and resale value.
