This statement kitchen in an elegant, classically styled home is a great example of how a pared-back modern look can be successfully combined with traditional lines to form a perfect balance of the two.

Because all the appliances were asked to be kept in the same place, the layout of this kitchen remodel is roughly the same as the existing kitchen. The cabinetry, however, was completely replaced by a more ergonomic, full-height pantry and storage system, taking advantage of the deep benchtops to create an on-bench pantry/prep centre behind a set of bi-fold doors. For contrast, the doors to this space were coated in an aged-brass metallic finish, which relates back to colour of the existing door and window latches.

A lay-on bead detail was chose for the cabinetry fronts, rather than a framed door. This detail adds a traditional look, but overall the feel remains very clean and contemporary through the use of negative detail pulls and a white-paint finish. The choice of white ovens and an integrated dishwasher also help keep the look clean and crisp.

On the back wall, above the cooktop, a custom cabinet for the overhead extractor was designed to match the rest of the cabinetry in the kitchen. This unit is backlit with LEDs to highlight its presence and to add drama. For the splashback, beautiful handcrafted tiles were laid vertically to make feature of the height of the space.
