What was once a small, awkward Cheltenham unit has now been transformed into a Hamptons inspired home, giving its retired owner the feeling of being on constant holiday while enjoying spacious comfort. The palette is both timeless and our homeowner’s favourite colour. The purpose of this renovation was to change the flow of the unit to better suit our clients changing needs while making the space entirely her own.
Brilliant SA had previously completed renovations at our clients daughters home also (see modern-traditional fusion). Our client undertook a complete unit renovation, including a kitchen, european laundry & main bathroom, as well as installing cavity sliding doors to bedrooms and painting throughout. Brilliant SA completely reconfigured the floorplan of the unit by removing a central arched wall, where the island now sits and entirely reconfiguring the laundry and bathroom areas.
Whilst working with our designer to reconfigure the floorplan, our client seeked to reduce the amount of valuable space taken up by her oversized laundry. A european laundry off the new kitchen was the perfect solution! However, the track system used in these custom 2.3m doors isn’t your average system. The Wilson & Bradley Kia Ora Sliding track allows these doors to not only bi-fold but slide from side to side, utilising the full space and functionality of the laundry. As the laundry opens into the kitchens and dining room this compact and unobtrusive system was the perfect solution for the space.
The laundry itself is spacious enough to fit a trough, underbench washer and drier. This underbench configuration provides a considerable amount of usable bench space. In true hamptons style a white herringbone splashback tile was paired with natrual oak open shelving with inbuilt LED strip lighting for a touch of luxury. The result is a compact, functional and easy to use laundry which can be neatly tucked away when our client has visitors.
