This elegant kitchen is an outstanding example of French Provincial style. Incorporating impeccable design with the practical elements such as large bench space and ample storage.
Glass front overhead cupboards with glazing bars and accent lighting are a decorative way to highlight favourite glassware and crockery, along with low profile downlights which create subtle lighting over the work surfaces. All of which fill the kitchen with a gentle glow fitting for a period style kitchen.
Elaborate corbels on the hutch define the cooking area and the feature end panels with matching corbels, fancy plant-on kick and curved stepped bullnose edge lend further elegance to the kitchens overall look.
Storage was an important consideration, as was the need to accommodate multiple cooks in the kitchen at the same time. Storage requirements were met with 900mm & 1025mm BLUM drawers and substantial cupboard space. Wide drawers fitted with BLUM orgaline dividers make it easy for anyone using the kitchen for the first time to find the right utensils.
The feature Island bench is large enough to double as an impromptu buffet area so guests can serve themselves and meets the needs of the owner to demonstrate to a group during cooking classes. The natural granite bench tops not only look fantastic they're also easy to clean.
Modern features including stainless steel appliances blend with old-fashion charm like copper kettles and antique nick-knacks displayed on the ‘ogee’ chimney breast mantle.
Two servery windows were incorporated into the design to link the inside with the outside entertainment area. This also makes cooking in the outside pizza oven a delight as ingredients and pizza can be passed through, or served buffet style on the granite benches. Double built in bar fridges ensures plenty of refreshments on hand without having to venture inside. With all the boxes on their wish list ticked this kitchen is definitely one for a master chef.
