This home and kitchen renovation exemplifies the timelessness of Hampton design and it’s synergy with a Northern Beaches lifestyle.
This modern home and kitchen renovation at Clareville (near Avalon) on Sydney’s Northern Beaches is a true testament of how Hampton’s shaker fronts and neutral colours have a timeless and contemporary appeal that will stand the test of time.
During our initial consultation at this lovely Clareville home, we discussed with the client the option to update the existing ‘U’ shaped kitchen layout to a more functional design.
Our expert kitchen design team, thought the function and useability of the space could be dramatically enhanced by changing the layout to a dual entry ‘L’ shaped kitchen with walk-around island bench, adding plenty of space for family seating.
For this concept to work, we needed to remove an adjoining wall that the existing kitchen was “attached” to. Additionally, this would open up the kitchen to the adjoining living room, creating a seamless and unified space.
The result was a larger, more functional area with plenty of natural light, that would form the ‘heart of the home’.
The benchtop material was carried through as a feature in the splashback. With the addition of a new gas cooktop, we suggested the client use a porcelain benchtop material, rather than engineered quartz, which eliminates burn risks from pots and pans.
Kitchen design tip
When incorporating a new island bench into your kitchen design, you need to consider the complexity of adding plumbing and electrical services to this location for a sink and/or cooktop. It’s easier if the kitchen floor has crawl space below for services to be run beneath. While it’s not impossible if this isn’t the case, it is something that the kitchen renovation team will need to work around.
