The client wanted to increase their kitchen and dining room to ensure as much natural light as possible. We took the original 80’s kitchen and dining room and transformed it into a modern, light, and airy open space with large sliding doors, merging the indoors and outdoors to create a fantastic new family gathering spot.
The original timber kitchen and dining area was 35 years old with a small sliding door and window, leading to the backyard. The ceiling had original chandelier lights with old-style internal archways and outdated floor tiles.
To begin, we removed the kitchen, ceiling, existing window, and sliding door. We demolished the external brick walls and installed a new steel lintel Ibeam. Next, we installed the new sliding stacker doors to create a large open space and maximize natural light. Internal archways throughout the home were removed and squared to modernise the entryways throughout the home. A new plasterboard ceiling with LED downlights was installed.
The kitchen itself was polyurethane with stone benchtops and stainless-steel appliances. The layout was redesigned with an island benchtop and breakfast bar, complete with sink. The oven and stove were also relocated from their original positions to be in a more functional spot.
Additional full-height glass pantry doors with internal lighting and power facilities were installed. For the flooring, we used 600 x 600mm porcelain floor tiles throughout the kitchen and dining area, leading to the outdoor verandah. This created an expansive indoor-outdoor feel. The job was completed with fresh paint and roller blinds and curtains concealed under a pelmet.
