Ben Clohessy from Clohessy Cabinets worked in collaboration with the owners of this sorrento property to create a contemporary kitchen with ample workspace, high-quality finishes and unique features.

With its unusual layout, exposed brickwork, and multi-levelled sloping roof with exposed timber beam ceilings, the original space posed a significant design challenge, which Clohessy Cabinets overcame using the exceptional creativity and workmanship for which it is renowned.

To expand the space, Clohessy Cabinets removed a half-wall that separated the cooking and dining areas. the existing brick oven tower and bulkhead were also removed to open up the area, and this then allowed for the microwave to be integrated into the walk-in pantry, out of sight. the dated face brick was plastered over to create unique timber grain features that enhance the aesthetic appeal of the space.

To create visual continuity between the two spaces, clohessy cabinets wrapped the irregular wall segments and pelmets in ‘maison oak’ laminate from Polytec’s raVine range, which features an embossed wood grain that’s identical to genuine timber in both look and feel.

The existing large structural pillar was transformed into a visually appealing custom-made feature with timber laminate framing, which appears to cut through the 3m x 1.2m island bench. the timber laminate wall features a small recess for a chalkboard, which is a fashionable yet practical feature.

Offering superior functionality and plenty of storage space, the 50kg finger-pull drawers are fitted with a bLUmotion soft-close mechanism, while the large push-to-open overhead cupboards feature aVentos lift systems. a flat-panel gloss vinyl finish in ‘classic White’ was selected for the cabinetry and kickboards, while the 40mm benchtops feature flat-polished square-edged caesarstone in ‘ice snow’.

The complementary 60cm x 60cm floor tiles feature a limestone finish, which beautifully ties together the other finishes in the kitchen.

Clohessy Cabinets installed state-of-the-art appliances from Fisher & Paykel, including a 76cm pyrolytic oven and a 519-litre 79cm activesmart fridge with French doors. the cooking zone features an induction cooktop, a glass splashback and energy-saving Led lights that are fitted into the overhead cabinetry.


Project 1



For this project, Clohessy Cabinets was provided with a brief to create a highly-functional kitchen space that also incorporated the clients’ love of classic features and finishes.

In keeping with the timeless style of the home, the kitchen features inframe vinyl wrap cabinetry doors with a matte finish. Traditional cast iron cage handles and a handcrafted chimney mantle above the stovetop also beautifully accentuate the classic aesthetic. These hard-wearing selections will retain their functionality and aesthetic appeal for many years to come.

The Clohessy Cabinets team ensured the kitchen also included large modern Miele appliances and ample bench space. The benchtop is topped with 40mm Caesarstone in ‘Offspray’, which is complemented by the stunning brushbox solid timber floor.

Clohessy Cabinets installed feature LED lighting and a glass splashback, while all kickboards and shaped pelmets have been handcrafted and painted, adding to the kitchen’s unique aesthetic. Combining a classical look with the conveniences of functional design, the kitchen goes above and beyond what the clients expected.
