This beautiful home located in tree lined Linden Park was purchased by former clients who downsized to cater with their changing lifestyle. Brilliant SA previously undertook a decking project for them in 2012 and our clients returned to us in 2019 to transform their newly purchased forever-home. Brilliant SA undertook a kitchen, bathroom, ensuite & laundry renovation in line with the clients desired Scandinavian style.
An existing window looking out to the courtyard was allowing in beautiful natural, however the corner kitchen made up of a black granite angled island and cream cabinetry simply wasn’t catering to our clients needs. As a chef, our client indicated two wish list items, one, more space & two, a stainless steel benchtop (every chefs best friend!). The cooktop run was therefore custom fabricated from stainless steel with a short riser and integrated sink to make cleaning a breeze!
Our designer worked closely with our client to ensure that the layout and selections would be appropriate and long lasting for our clients and how they planned to use the kitchen. To resolve the lack of usable bench space, a spacious 1.1m island in the centre of the kitchen allows for ample room for food preparation. The mitred slab island is Caesarstone Rugged Concrete and provides a lovely textural and visual contrast against a Tasmanian Oak veneer island back. Two open shelving units, one over the fridge and adjacent the sink, provide homes for our clients beloved cookbooks and travel décor. All remaining cabinetry was custom made in Polytec’s ‘Polar White’ in satin finish with stainless steel kickers for continuity. Drawers have a bevelled edge handle and doors are push to open to ensure the entire kitchen looks sleek. A tall pantry near the cooktop conceals the microwave and contains all drawer storage for ample easy access to food. A specific spice and oil drawer left of the oven was a functional addition.
Our designer retained the location of the sink to take advantage of the beaming natural light provided by the existing window. Gloss Kit Kat tiles in white with grey grout provide a subtle and interesting design element which ties in beautifully with the grey tones throughout. Under cabinet LED lighting sets the entire space off and reflects against the tiles for a lovely ambiance. The result is a show stopping space that not only meets all of the functional requirements of our clients but makes cooking in their forever-home an absolute joy!
