Upon entering the front gate, the owners of this Stafford Heights property are greeted by a private and tranquil tropical courtyard space. Frameless glass sliding windows seamlessly connect the courtyard to the contemporary kitchen inside. An outdoor timber servery bar top allows family members and guests to sit and enjoy the outdoor space while maintaining conversation with those inside the kitchen.
The kitchen layout was designed to allow the homeowners to enjoy expansive city views, framed by a wall of windows as they prepare dinner in this large open plan space.
A monochrome colour scheme with handless opening matt finish cabinets creates a minimalist, sleek and contemporary feel to the space.
The marble-look splashback and island benchtop with waterfall ends add a touch of luxury whilst keeping in harmony with the clean lines and black & white colour scheme. The use of a plain black stone on the main kitchen benchtops allows the island bench to be the hero of the space.
A walk-in pantry provides ample storage for all dry food items behind a full-height handleless opening door next to the cooking area.
Small appliances are easily accessed – yet hidden away from sight – on a pull-out shelf behind a roller door in the side of the pantry.
To maintain the minimal lines of the space, hidden inner drawers have been included in the drawer banks either side of the sink to provide storage for utensils.
What the clients said:
“We were recommended to Kitchens by Kathie from a friend who was equally happy with their kitchen. From start to end, nothing was too much trouble. Tara had excellent and creative ideas but was always mindful of what WE wanted and worked that into the equation. There is not a day we don’t marvel at our beautiful kitchen and applaud our decision to use Kitchens by Kathie. Thanks Tara!!!”
