Balwyn Classic Kitchen

As food lovers, the owners of this home wanted a practical, inviting space in which to cook and entertain. Feeling that their existing kitchen was “all over the place”, they enlisted The Kitchen Place to create a logical and functional new layout.

Peter Tredinnick headed up the team behind the new design, with a galley-style layout based around a sizeable island bench in the centre. With no sink or cooktop, the gorgeous Almond Rocca Caesarstone benchtop is a focal point completely dedicated to food preparation and servery.

Aiming for a modern yet homely aesthetic, Peter has utilised an eclectic mix of materials and finishes. Tasmanian oak veneer has been teamed with crisp white paint for a subtle two-toned effect.

To keep the kitchen clutter-free, provision has been made for an abundance of storage. A large pantry holds all the owners’ non-perishables and has plenty of room for their healthy collection of oils, flours and spices. A host of deep drawers and cabinets, equipped with the finest hardware, provides a home for every kitchen necessity. Clearly defined internals mean everything has its place; there’s even a spot for the trays and chopping boards in the kicker drawers.

The updated kitchen for food lovers, with its blend of form and functionality, is a practical and attractive space tailor-made for a family who love to cook and entertain.
