A Northern Beaches coastal kitchen and laundry renovation

coastal kitchens northern beaches 1

Coastal kitchens are a mainstay of Northern Beaches interior design style and this stylish kitchen renovation and laundry upgrade highlights how the use of colour and cabinetry can transform a space from stale to fresh.

The owners of this beautiful Mona Vale home, on Sydney’s Northern Beaches, spend every spare moment at the beach.  When they asked our team to renovate their tired kitchen and laundry, they were adamant that it reflected a strong coastal vibe.

Our 3D software gave the homeowners confidence in their choices.

During the kitchen and laundry design process, our 3D kitchen design software gave the customers the convenience of being able to explore a range of room layouts, cabinetry styles and colour paletes.

This innovative software gives the customer a realistic, 3D walk-around view of their new kitchen right there on a computer desktop. With the tap of a few keys, we’re able to change colours, cabinetry choice and layout.

A new, free flowing kitchen layout transformed the space.

During our design consultation, we recommended changing the kitchen layout to a more functional design.

To this end, we opted for a large, central island bench with seating.  This created a seamless and unified flow between the kitchen and the adjoining living area.

Changing the location of wall cabinets opened up the room significantly, letting more light flood in, giving a greater sense of space and proportion.

To provide adequate storage, we took advantage of every available space for cupboards and bench space.

The walk-in butler’s pantry is hidden behind a stylish sliding door.  This was a great addition to the kitchen and hides commonly used appliances from view, leaving the benchtops clean and uncluttered.  With a  budding, young “Masterchef” living in the home, the butler’s pantry is the perfect space to experiment.

The stone benchtop and natural marble tiled splashback add to the coastal vibe

The 40mm Smartstone benchtops and mosaic splashbacks, offset by the white shaker-style cupboard doors, are a match made in heaven that combines to create a cool, coastal vibe.

With a splash of Coastal Blue V-grooved panelling at the end of the island bench, this adds a pop of colour and contrasts with the coolness of the white cupboards, tiles and benchtops and natural tones of the oak timber flooring.

The cupboards feature finger-pull, shaker-styled doors and drawers. With so many cupboards and drawers installed to maximise storage options, handles would have detracted from the clean lines of the kitchen.

For the laundry renovation, the owners opted for a more traditional palette

When it came to the laundry renovation, the owners opted for a more conventional design.

To utilise all the space available in this galley laundry layout, we stacked the washing machine and dryer together, giving significantly more bench space and cabinet storage.

Shaker-style doors were carried through from the kitchen to create unity and carry through the clean, coastal vibe.

Best of all, a hidden laundry hamper keeps dirty clothes hidden from prying eyes.

This laundry renovation is now a space that the owners are proud to show off rather than close off when guests arrive.
