For the project, the homeowners wanted a kitchen with a timeless aesthetic suited to the remainder of the house as well as room for the family to move, and space for entertaining.
Designed in house by Peter Barrass and built by the talented team at Kitchen Evolution, the striking space features a considered mix of classic and contemporary elements.
Featuring a generous amount of bench space and storage potential, as well as a spacious floor area and state of the art Smeg cooking appliances, the kitchen is a functional hub which the whole family can utilise. By positioning adjacent to the outdoor meals zone, Kitchen Evolution made a seamless flow of indoor and alfresco entertaining. Painted in Resene Dark Knight, the shaker-style cabinetry beautifully contrasts the Smartstone Athena benchtops.
The rich hue of Resene Dark Knight adds character to the space and brings a sense of elegance applied using Resene Lustacryl semi-gloss waterborne enamel over Resene Waterborne Smooth Surface Sealer. To complement the colour Dark Knight, Perrin & Rowe handles were selected along with energy efficient LED lighting which offers ample illumination supported by vintage style pendant lights above the island bench and matching wall lights on either side of the sink.
