This Hampton Kitchen created the perfect update for this Sandringham Kitchen Renovation.

In the initial discussions with this client, it was obvious he enjoyed the outlook of natural light, greenery and blue skies (when there is in Melbourne), to filter into his kitchen space. White cabinetry of some type was the preference.  As was a touch of timber to create warmth, and a differing colour benchtop other than white that would blend in with the hues of the space and the remainder of the home.

The Designer set about designing the kitchen around the lovely window backdrop connecting the kitchen to the outdoors allowing natural light to flood in. The choice of Hampton style white door was decided on, not only to connect the same style throughout the home, but also allowing the light to reflect into the warmth of the door.

In considering the benchtop with so many choices the final YDL Smokey Grey was chosen which complements the kitchen space perfectly. The white mixed with the benchtop and Dulux grey paint on the walls provides the perfect feel from kitchen to neighbouring living and hallway.

The final touches of timber flooring including timber strip around the island bench overhang as well as the timber edge around the windows completed the brief of touch of timber.

The added dimension of plain white tiles envelope the window backdrop nicely ensuring the light flows through. A couple of elegant timber and black stools and the kitchen renovation is complete.  Another timeless kitchen design.

This kitchen renovation is a classic example how the splashback is often the last decision to be made when designing the kitchen. However, as seen here it provides such an impact and is one of the important elements of the kitchen renovation. The importance of understanding what you like and dislike, as well as the key features in your kitchen space is paramount for the Zesta Kitchens Designer.
