When the owners of this Oatley kitchen expanded on their property they want to capture the beautiful vista in the design. Not one to disappoint, designer Ole Jensen from Art of Kitchens conceptualised a project that went above and beyond this request and made the stunning scenery the back drop to the eye-catching design.

In a creative yet practical twist, a window was installed as a splashback at the rear wall of the kitchen. This innovative design feature allows the room to be kissed by a generous wave of natural light for an inviting daytime ambience. Beneath the light the floating, marble island benchtop is luminous and perfectly accompanied by Caesarstone benches while cabinets were treated in a mix of polyurethane and timber veneer. This interesting blend of surfaces and finishes fives the kitchen a unique beauty that reflects its surroundings.

The artful design is regularly admired and made use of when the family entertains.

Guests can take a seat at the large island bench and join in the food presentation – or simply enjoy the view. And when the party is over, the kitchen is easily restored to its former glory thanks to abundant storage solutions that have been supplied for appliances and cooking knick-knacks.

Art of Kitchens has made the most of the enviable canvas presented and now the owners are making the most of the wonderful kitchen they were given in return.
