Get creative with your benchtop
We love engineered stone benchtops… but they don’t always have to be rectangular. The House 12 benchtop is all the inspiration you need for some curvalicious goodness! We worked with the team at Carrera by Design to create this kitchen and adding some wow factor to the island was a must. The curved panel along one length of the island with groove strips detail to add more layers and interest and the Talostone Elba White benchtop is cut to mirror the curves of the cabinetry.
Stylish appliances that have substance as well
At House 12, we chose an Electrolux 60cm oven with pyrolytic cleaning, along with an integrated dishwasher that pops open at the end of cycle to naturally air dry your dishes. To renovate our uniform kitchen design, an intuitive rangehood that automatically turns on when you start cooking is a brilliant choice!
Bring in a banquette
Banquette, or bench seating, brings a hotel or restaurant vibe to your home. It’s a great place for friends and family to sit and chat to the chef. Lana’s a self-proclaimed bench seat aficionado so is very pleased that this one is built to her ideal specs – 450mm high and 510mm deep. That’s before we added the custom bench seat cushion, with the arched back rests, to bring in elements of the arch shape we’ve used throughout the house. The icing on the cake is the two table tops, just the perfect size for a cup of coffee or glass of wine. They’re made from the same Talostone Elba White as we used for the bench tops.
A touch of timber
Who says we always do white kitchens?! Coastal Oak timber cabinetry gives the kitchen a warm and welcoming feel and we love how seamlessly the light wood tones of the kitchen work with the rest of the house.
Who are we kidding? We LOVE a servery. It’s great to fling open the windows and get some airflow through your kitchen every day. It comes in to its own when you have guests as a handy serving window come bar to keep the indoor/outdoor entertaining flowing
