This Caulfield North modern kitchen may look like it is too minimalist to be of any use, but look a little closer to see the storage secrets it hides.
Installed in a small, unsuspecting unit, this clever kitchen is a part of a total interior renovation. Crisp white and warm, high interest veneer turn this kitchen into a statement. White cabinetry under the island bench, and on the side wall, is coated in hard waring two pack polyurethane, with “J” grips routed in to give the clean handless look while maintaining function with one action opening (rather than push to open, which requires two actions). Bi-fold, tuck away doors hide a kitchen utility area where cooking splatters and dirty dishes may be hidden when entertaining.
On the veneer feature wall, more specially routed “J” grips give access to an abundance of storage space, including ample pantry between the ovens and overhead storage above. Not a centimetre of potential storage space has gone to waste.
The island bench features a Corain top with integrated sink (moulded in to be seamless). The crisp whiteness is set of by a designer white mixer tap. Set against the veneer backdrop, this white faucet becomes a sculptural focal point.
Behind the bi-fold tuck away doors hides an everyday sink, induction cooktop and heavy duty extractor. This Caulfield North modern kitchen may look untouchable but the owner definitely plans to make solid use of it, and it has been designed to cope with gourmet cooking and multiple chefs working simultaneously. Look at the work triangle and access to storage to gain insight to this.
