Kristy and Brett’s kitchen is a masterclass in Classic Luxury. The light and bright look is achieved with a predominately white kitchen palette created with Fresh White Satin cabinetry paired with our new Matt White Knurled bar kitchen handles. The dramatic stone-look benchtop on the island bench ensures that the kitchen is the heart of House 3.
The kitchen has been designed to flow into the dining and living spaces for effortless open plan living. The central island bench connects the zones, offering casual seating as well as numerous kitchen drawers and kitchen cupboards to maximise storage and organisation.
The back wall of cabinetry spans an impressive 5.5 metres, evoking a seamless look with Fresh White Satin doors concealing two integrated fridges and Häfele Tandem Pantries. A chef’s kitchen, the design features four ovens, and a gas/induction fusion cooktop, all from ASKO. In a clever use of space, the pair utilised a spare wall near the kitchen, adding two Wine Climate Cabinets positioned at the end of the island run, where guests can gather and sit.
The kitchen cabinet design allows for ample storage in the room, thanks to a mixture of drawers within the kitchen island bench and numerous cabinets lining the back wall, as well as the separate butler’s pantry. One of our favourite solutions (and the judges) is the Secret Splashback Storage, which we have dubbed the ‘Rise & Fall splashback’. Herbs, spices, oils, and other kitchen essentials can be organised within the Oak Woodgrain open shelving behind the splashback which can be raised, allowing access to pantry essentials - all within easy reach of the cooktop and ovens nearby!
“It was very helpful to work with the Kinsman team on our kitchen, explains Kristy. We knew we wanted to create a style that was classic and minimal while also maximising access and usability, and being able to design the room and select the products in person had a big impact.”
