This home owner’s kitchen was crying out for a renovation. With outdated pink granite bench tops, white melamine cupboards and a very unfriendly layout we were just as eager for this new kitchen to take shape. When this already dilapidated kitchen was set on fire by mistake by the home owner’s elderly mother, there were no more excuses. The home owner was looking for a timeless modern kitchen with a quirky industrial and retro twist. We were very constricted with the small space available. We completely changed the layout and enlarged the existing bench top space with a new overhang and extra width. To add interest to the small area we chose two toned cupboards in timber and white. Due to the small space we did not choose detailed shaker doors but went for modern flat doors to keep it simple in a small area. A neutral concrete stone bench top created a good base for a very unusual and daring splash back. Industrial & retro elements were used throughout as finishing touches. New industrial pendant lights were installed above the bench top area to create a cosy atmosphere in the evenings, as the kitchen is very close to the dining room table.
