Intelligent design has made use of every inch of this “smart” kitchen renovation.
The original kitchen was lacking in benchspace with outdated decor, and the owners requested a renovation with the wow factor that was practical and on a tight budget.
The result is a magnificent, European style kitchen. Warm, espresso coloured laminex in contrast with the crisp whiteness of the stonetop benches and striking burnt toffee splashbacks create a stunning effect.
However it’s the intelligent design that sets this kitchen apart. Using the “Zones” principle, five distinct zones were created: preparation, cooking, cold drinks, hot drinks and cleaning. Practical and functional, the kitchen incorporates clever options such as blind corner pantry units and pull- up cabinets to make use of normally “dead space”.
