Mint Kitchen Group Project 1
The homeowners of the featured project required someone who could take on the full renovation of their not-so-old townhouse in Toorak. The property had been rented for several years and required a refreshing update. Although it is a large kitchen, the original layout lacked bench and storage space; the main elements of a functional kitchen.
All five bathrooms and the laundry also needed updating, so a common theme was chosen. A white base was used to fulfil the clients’ requests for a fresh and clean look, but it was important the spaces did not look too clinical as they didn’t want a ‘surgery feel’ as they work in the medical industry and spend their days in surgery.
Mint Kitchen Group chose Laminex Antique White gloss two-pack as the finish for the joinery and highlighted the remainder of the kitchen with CaesarStone Sage benchtops. Since the clients really wanted elements of green introduced, ‘White on Clear’ was selected for the glass splashback and a feature green slump glass as a highlight for the back of the island bench. The clients, thinking of their ‘almost’ retirement years, wanted the kitchen to be fitted with all the latest appliances. They also needed a small desk area for occasional bookkeeping, and an area to store their bain-marie for larger style dinner parties.
A concealed area beside the wall of appliances was installed, creating a work area with pocket-style doors below the bench that conceal the bain-marie and office stool when not in use. Due to the fact that they were on the lower level of the complex, there was quite an issue with lighting into the rooms. Mint Kitchen Group designed feature bulkheads throughout the kitchen, family and meals area to incorporate some clever lighting solutions and at the same time, dress up these rooms. The renovations turned out very well, with the clients very excited about nearing retirement and moving into this beautiful and freshly renovated town residence.
