Luke and Josh’s generous kitchen takes centre stage in House 4, being the first thing you see as you walk through the front door. In keeping with the ultra-modern design aesthetic seen throughout their home, the space showcases a moody and opulent palette layering black, timber and marble tones. Central to the look is the joinery in Ballina French Dark Grain Pure Grain, a new colour to the Kinsman range, which features a heavily embossed dark woodgrain. Wall cabinets in Black Aluminium Frame Doors with black-tinted Acrylic Inserts provide a visually appealing feature with their architectural lines.
Caesarstone® Statuario Maximus has been used for the island bench and the splashback, providing a beautiful contrast to the black joinery with its soft white marble-inspired design with broad warm grey veins. A timber feature on the island was custom created by acclaimed furniture maker Christian Cole, adding a sense of warmth and structure to the room, in turn allowing seating space for people to gather.
This kitchen is perfect for those who love to cook and entertain. An induction cooktop and a cube of NEFF appliances are perfect for a home cook, while painting the streamlined look. The inclusion of bi-fold windows and a Caesarstone® Jet Black benchtop which extends to the outdoor area, creates a servery, connecting the kitchen to the outdoor space.
A hidden butler’s pantry complements the main kitchen area, hosting an extra sink and tap, generous bench space for prep, and plenty of easy access storage thanks to Glass Climbers Cabinets and closed cabinets. It allows the user to hide away any mess while entertaining. Clever storage solutions can be found throughout the pantry and main kitchen, as seen through the inclusion of accessories such as Design Sides, Non-slip Drawer Matts, Internal Drawers, and a Ninka Bin.
“Our kitchen is the standout room in our home, says Luke. It’s designed for a buyer that appreciates a modern-looking home. We have included thoughtful details such as LED lights in the cabinetry and touch sensors throughout, and we chose a bold palette to appeal to someone that is not afraid to stand out.”
