Kitchens: A Fresh Start

Nothing says “blank canvas” quite like a new home and all the possibilities it holds

Creating a kitchen in a new home is a chance for a family to start fresh and begin a lifetime of memories. And it doesn’t get much fresher than the timeless black-and-white combination chosen by this family, who, when planning their new kitchen, opted for a classic, French provincial theme to suit the style of the rest of their home. Utilising the generous-sized space, Carrera Kitchens devised an open-plan design with an abundance of functional storage, feature cabinets to highlight important items and a large benchtop area that’s a must for family meal preparations.

The feature chimney fits with the French provincial theme and is an attractive element that demands attention. An island bar with French provincial-style pillars to each corner is conveniently positioned in the centre and has a round sink in addition to the double butler’s sink by the window, for extra convenience. The rich 30mm Absolute Black granite that stretches across the island and all benchtops creates a striking contrast against the crisp two-pack satin Dulux Antique White USA Shaker-style cabinetry and panels. A corner walk-in pantry gives the family all the space they could ever need to keep food items neat and tidy and out of immediate view. Special out-of-the-ordinary appliances were also called for and include a Euro wine fridge placed in the island and a Miele steam oven. With their dream kitchen now complete, a new chapter in this family’s history can begin. KBQ
