Kitchen & Laundry

Throughout their kitchen Harry and Tash have chosen a thoughtful mix of contemporary and period styling with their colour and finish choices. Essendon cabinetry in White Satin features Kinsman’s Platinum Range Crest Channel Handle, a continuous black channel handle which is inset into the cabinetry carcass itself. The effect is magnified with the use of feature, vertical profile Avoca doors in Prime Oak and Caesarstone Airy Concrete benchtops and splashbacks.

The eye is immediately drawn to the feature rangehood box and floating timber shelving along the back of the kitchen, with a splashback in Caesarstone’s Airy Concrete. Continuing the theme of subtle black touches throughout the space, the island bench has been designed around Kinsman’s black ‘U’ framed leg which supports the 60mm Airy Concrete top’s overhang.

Within the butler’s pantry, 2020 Alumin frames with broadline glass shelving act not only as an eye-catching feature, but also as practical storage and decorative zone, ensuring functionality is still maximised while keeping the space light and airy.
