When designing any room within your home it can often be hard to decide what to incorporate for that lasting ‘wow’ factor. A key rule in interior design is for freshly designed spaces to always create a true reflection of the home’s residents and to cater for how they live within the home environment.
The added challenge with kitchen design is to ensure you blend the new space with the existing home. For example, this new kitchen designed by Sublime Architectural Interiors needed to complement the existing décor of a renovated Mediterranean style home and a Brisbane river frontage.
To achieve the new free-flowing layout, several walls were removed to open the kitchen up to the adjoining living areas. This has created an environment for casual dining and interaction with family and friends, including a large island bench at the front of the kitchen which doubles as both a food prep and serving station and dry bar area, for the perfect spot for informal entertaining with a Vintec wine fridge neatly positioned underneath.
When remodelling a home, there are certain areas that are known to increase the property’s overall value; the kitchen is one. Designing a kitchen with a beautiful and classic design can ensure your property’s appeal and value will last, despite fleeting trends.
This practical kitchen design and colour palette provides a timeless style, using earthy tones and natural materials like the marble splashback and a floating floor in spotted gum to marry the new space with the old, while considering the external environment.
An enduring focal point has been made by utilising Queensland walnut veneers to bring warmth to the overall design and mask the structural support for the roof that was required
after the walls were removed.
To minimise clutter, a conveniently concealed pantry, with sliding glass doors and movement sensor lighting has been incorporated. Lighting is often overlooked in kitchen design, but not here. The task lighting via down lights illuminates the workspaces and low-wattage accent lighting help enhance the key elements of the design.
Overall, you can see that many trends have been incorporated into this kitchen design, however the look and feel creates a timeless classic style that will still be the focal point of the home for many years to come.
