The owners of this Eastern Suburbs kitchen needed more storage and bench space; the kitchen was lacking in the original U-shaped design with breakfast bar.
The key to achieving this was removing a large window where the sink is now, creating 360mm rather than standard 300mm deep wall cabinets, and a large island with deep drawers.
Adding downlights in the bulkhead plus a large pendant light compensates for removing the window. The idea behind the square island with a timber veneer base and 100mm Calacutta marble top was to create a living room experience.
Notable it still fits within the original footprint of the kitchen and can comfortably seat four. While the focus of the redesign was much on the practical, the Calacutta marble is what stands out, adding impact to the simplicity of the white and timber.
