FAMILY KITCHEN

AN ISLAND BENCH WITH A DISTINCT EDGE

While this kitchen has a classic L-shape, what is unique is the similarly L-shaped island bench, which is split into two distinct areas. One section includes large-format drawers and a huge countertop workspace. The other is a peninsula, which is just 600mm deep, expressed entirely in 80mm ‘Verona Mist’ Essastone and free from under- counter encumbrances. The result of these two island elements together is an area for both work and play.

Stainless steel pendant lights that are reminiscent of a high-end restaurant’s warming lamps give the kitchen the feeling of a professional culinary zone. This is reiterated by the double wall oven and large French-door fridge.

The darker cabinetry doors on and around the tall elements of the kitchen give the room depth and interest. This section of cabinetry houses a pantry, utility cupboard, fridge and oven. The remainder of the cabinetry features a white Laminex finish, which is grounded by 20mm Essastone benchtops in ‘Basalto’ that waterfall over the edge of the base cabinetry. All cabinetry is accessorised by Blum hardware and brushed stainless steel handles.

All overhead cabinets have lift-up doors, and the consistency of their use relays a seamless sensibility that’s furthered by an under-cabinet rangehood and undermount sink. A beautiful effect is created by the integrated lighting beneath the overhead cabinetry, which illuminates the stone benchtops and reflects a shimmering light in the pearlescent, faceted-tile splashback. A picture window behind the sink brings more light into the space and overlooks the garden.

Open shelving permits the homeowners to display cookbooks, treasured knick-knacks and things that truly personalise the space. An integrated bin and a seemingly endless supply of drawer storage make the kitchen especially functional.

CLASSIC IS THE NEW CONTEMPORARY

STUNNING KITCHEN DESIGN

Described by Agean Kitchens as a design with an authentic old-world feel, this kitchen is an example of the exceptional results the company can achieve balancing requirements for both living and entertaining.

The standard of quality in Agean Kitchens’ work is immediately obvious in the project showcased here. The company worked closely with the owners and Australian Renovation Group, over a period of time to bring their dreams to fruition.

The focal point of the kitchen is the beautiful chimney mantle made from solid timber built by Australian Renovation Group. The pressed tin splashback accentuates the chimney’s powerful presence, while the cabinetry made from Tasmanian oak, pays homage to the home’s traditional character.

Soft green walls, intricate cornicing and jarrah timber floors beautifully complement the kitchen’s classic aesthetic, while the movable island bench has been designed to for food preparation and presentation, with the added benefit of accompanying storage. This allows whoever is cooking the ability to deliver meals while guests can be seated in the kitchen at the island bench without interfering.

Agean Kitchens works on both renovations and new homes, offering a complete service including design, manufacture, installation and project management. The company has extensive knowledge and expertise in all aspects of kitchen design and manufacturing, and works throughout the Perth region.

The company has been recognised for its quality of work with awards, including the Housing Industry Association (HIA) when in 2008 it won the prestigious Western Australia Kitchen Project of the Year award.
