 Timber Oak Tops & Square Paneled Thermafoil Doors



For this kitchen our client selected a Harmonious colour scheme of a honey Oak with pastel Sage.

For the Benchtops and Head-moldings we used Tasmanian Oak that we polished with a clear gloss Two-Pack polyurethane lacquer. This timber is actually an Australian hardwood eucalypt which has a very straight grain and figure.

For the raised panel doors we introduced a subtle Sage Green in an easy to care for Textured Thermafoil finish while also picking up on the Stainless Steel appliances with the use of hard wearing satin stainless Bow handles.

Scandinavian Oak and Thermaform panel Doors, by Compass Kitchens


Along with providing generous bench space and storage room we also introduced various design elements of interest to this kitchen such as designing a stepped-back pantry divided with an Oak Benchtop with deep pantry Drawers below and long doors above. We incorporated open shelving to display those favorite items and introduced a long glass door display cabinet in the corner.

We also included functional features such as the inclusion of 15 deep pot drawers with full extension runners so our client had full access to the contents all the way to the back. We incorporated a Semi-Integrated dishwasher into the layout and the client selected an unobtrusive retractable range hood to maintain the line of the overhead cabinets.

Our client selected a flat halogen Westinghouse Cooktop, Oliveri Euroform inset sink and we built-in their microwave over their Wall oven with a trim kit and incorporated another one of our Microwave Stealth Shelf  units in between the wall oven and Microwave to provide extra pull out bench space for when bringing hot food out of the microwave to stir during the cooking process.

Our Kitchen design here was published in the Classic Kitchens Magazine and in The Very Best Kitchens & Bathrooms Magazine. It also appeared in the Modern Kitchens and Bathrooms Magazine with a three page feature and followed with a four page feature in the home Magazine Innovative Kitchens & Bathrooms; demonstrating the broad appeal of these materials and design.
