Five years ago we renovated the kitchen. At the time our existing kitchen was a interesting salmon pink tone with laminate benches and a layout that wasn't great for storage.
When designing the new kitchen my wants were:
Must be a design that wouldn't date. I didn't want to change my mind with colours, finishes or fixtures in the near future.
I wanted it to be light and bright as the room didn't receive any sunlight until late into the afternoon.
I didn't want it to be a stand alone feature but instead part of the house that worked with the flow of each room leading off it (living room and laundry).
I wanted a large island as we had previously lacked bench space and this was something we needed to create.
Adding pantry storage as we currently didn't have a pantry.
A hardy benchtop that wouldn't stain or chip was also an absolute must.
So while checking off the list above I designed the following kitchen with the specs listed below.
CABINET MAKER: Rosemount Kitchens
CABINET FINISH: Polytec Vinyl Wrap Ultra White
HANDLES: A bespoke design made for us by a close friend. You can however locate similar handles here
BENCHTOPS: Quantum Quartz Ultra White
SPLASHBACK: Porcelain Statuario from Mulitiform Stone
