Smith & Smith Kitchens Project 1
Smith & Smith Kitchens is a company that takes pride in its ability to provide homeowners with beautiful cabinetry for all rooms of the home. From kitchens and bathrooms to studies and libraries, there is no limit to the talented team’s abilities.
Established more than 30 years ago, the Smith & Smith Kitchens team is comprised of designers, interior designers, and architects. Servicing the Melbourne metropolitan area, Smith & Smith Kitchens has proved itself as an industry leader time and time again. With the capacity to create exceptional spaces in any style, there is very little the talented team can’t achieve.
Smith & Smith Kitchens was recently recognised in the 2013–14 Australian Cabinet Makers and Designers Association (CMDA) awards, winning Best Kitchen over $40,000 and the prestigious Presidents Award, as well as the Australian Designer of the Year Award.
Book-matched dark variegated walnut burl veneer is the stand-out feature of the first pictured kitchen. The homeowner wanted a kitchen that would be the focal point of the home and Smith & Smith Kitchens’ multi-award-winning designer Rob Barclay has met this request with the 4m curved-end walnut burl veneer island bench and complementing wall cabinets.
The veneer is lit by LED downlights to create a warm ambience, while pendant lights were purchased online from overseas specifically to suit the unique Art Deco style of the home. The edging of the 60mm Statuario marble benchtop was carefully handcrafted to also match the home’s style.
Two-pack polyurethane doors painted in a Dulux ‘Grand Piano’ quarter-strength satin finish provide a simple backdrop to the kitchen, allowing the distinctive pattern of the walnut burl veneer to shine.
