Smith & Smith Kitchens Project 21

Showcasing a minimalised Hamptons design, this sizeable kitchen was created by Bec Underwood of Smith & Smith Kitchens, seamlessly tying it in with the rest of the period home in which it sits. The result is full of light and character.

While an island bench is often the most fitting choice for a kitchen renovation, Smith & Smith Kitchens recognised that on this occasion, an island was not welcome. Rather than taking up a premium on space on this slightly narrow slot, the designer opted for an open L-shape, providing plenty of room for the vast pantry while still allowing for a seated area at the bench. The wall of storage is ideal for the homeowners, who have numerous items and bulk pantry goods to store.

Small, square display windows were installed in the overhead cupboards to provide a place for the homeowners to display cherished items, a little unique touch that brings the kitchen to life.

This Smith & Smith Kitchens creation is abundant with complementary textures, and a calm and cosy colour palette. Face frame cabinets with shaker-style doors in ‘Love Note White’ by British Paints deliver an old-school hand-crafted look. These beautiful cabinets combined with the ‘London Grey’ Caesarstone benchtops, the fresh white subway tile splashback and the tongue and groove lining boards create the perfect casual country kitchen.

The dark, textured floorboards make a solid contrast against the whites. This contrast continues in the black wooden stools, the Castella Shaker fluted knob and shell cabinet handles, and the stunning feature pendant light. These subtle elements give the kitchen definition and help the whites pop.

Accentuating the country feel is the beautiful farmhouse sink, which is both luxurious and highly functional. The integrated dishwasher maintains the overall design, a smart choice for this period home. The homeowners can enjoy this space with family and guests, preparing meals for loved ones with the generous Ilve oven and cooktop.
