A holiday home for five on the beautiful Pauanui Waterways required a entertainers’ indoor/outdoor kitchen to take advantage of the relaxed vibe.

Entertainer’s Delight

The client requirements were for something special. A bar leaner for entertaining, plenty of storage for platters/bowls, a hidden appliance garage for a large number of appliances, with clean, warm, practical and durable finishes.

The space allocated was certainly big enough to accommodate the numerous appliances and storage requirements and included a chance to add drama.

The design incorporates two kitchens side by side. The inside kitchen is for Mum to prepare meals; the adjacent, outdoor kitchen, is for Dad to cook his BBQ feasts. Their three kids, aged 9, 11 and 13, can access the pantry and small appliance garage without interfering with the prep, cooking, or cleaning areas.

Oak veneer gives texture and warmth, whilst the Dekton Lunar delivers a practical, durable surface and keeps the palette light. Resene Double Foundary Lacquer cabinetry fronts are paired with Dekton Bromo fronts for the overhead cupboards and are continued to the outside kitchen for connectivity – and durability.

The wow factor comes from the marble raised leaner in Arabescato Orobico Grigio, which compliments the kitchen tones and adds that ‘special’ element to the kitchen for friends and family to gather around whilst entertaining. LED lighting under the leaner and in adjacent areas provides a softness at night and illuminates the entertainment area.

Sliding doors divide the two kitchens, but when opened, provide an extended kitchen space that connects the two into one, large entertainers' delight.
