Our clients at Willunga had first made contact with us; in need of a new Kitchen Renovation because their existing Kitchen had deteriorated due to water damage. Their existing kitchen was in a Solid Timber style that suited the accompanying woodwork and architecture of this lovely home. Our clients wished to keep with a Solid Timber Style, but to bring this style and the kitchen features up to date.


We took this opportunity to change the design and the layout of the kitchen’s work-flow whereby opening it up to the Lounge and Dining rooms, and making it a more open social space to be in. We also added more dedicated storage space with easy access and functionality. For this new kitchen, we also had the space to add a central Island Bench; providing additional workspace and Drawer Storage for bulky appliances and cookware; placing these close to where they are being used.


Our clients selected Black Galaxy Granite Counter Tops, which has a Gold Broncite fleck within it that picks up on the Golden tones of the solid American Oak doors and Panels chosen. We incorporated 22 wooden Drawers into our design, which all have quality concealed, Full Extension Soft Close Blum Runners. We then dressed the cabinets with Black French Twist “T” Handles and D pulls, matching the countertops while also complimenting the Solid Timber Style and homes Architecture.

Our client selected modern style Smeg Induction Cooktop in black that blends seamlessly in with the Black Granite and then paired this with a silent and concealed Undermount Rangehood by Falmec, which we ducted out to the atmosphere with this unit's fan and motor built into the flue outside on the roof where this dramatically reduces the Rangehood noise making it easier to have a convertation. In addition to this having a quiet remote fan and motor, these Falmec units are extremely powerful and move 1140 cubic meters of air an hour (mt3/hr) compared to the 300 mt3/hr of a standard undermount. This increase of power translates into a more efficient rangehood that is better able to keep your kitchen clean and free of cooking odors.


Our Client also chose a Satin Stainless Steel wall Oven, a stacked Built-In Microwave, a Mitsubishi French Door Refrigerator along with a quality Australian made Oliveri Monet double bowl sink, where we then picked up on this Stainless Steel and the Grey colours in their soft furnishings to use a Light Grey Metallic for the Glass Splashbacks that were then complimented with Grey Metallic Low Profile HPM PowerPoints; giving this Timber Kitchen Style a modern up-to-date look.


We used a Culino three in one rainwater mixer tap into the design and incorporated a Double Slide-Out Waste Bins under the sink, a Two-Tiered Cutlery Tray with top Tray on runners which roll back to expose an extra layer of cutlery storage, a space to store shallow trays and cutting boards on edge and dedicated drawers for easy storage of our client's items including one for our client’s tall Bread Maker and Food Processor.   

Our clients then finished off this renovation with the selection of large format Porcelain Floor Tiles, which have a flat matt finish in a light bone colour.
