The team at Let's Talk Kitchens & Interiors worked with the homeowners of this stunning 1912 built, Federation style property in Melbourne's leafy east, to bring their kitchen into the 21st Century.

The existing kitchen was closed in, dated and heavy with a lot of timber and the space had been stripped of the Federation features which were present throughout the rest of the home.

This is the kitchen space before the renovation:

The homeowners had a great vision for this space and saw past the limitations of the existing footprint. Walls and doorways were altered to create a larger and more open kitchen/dining/living area. The original laundry which sits behind the kitchen has been transformed into a functional butler's pantry with second sink, dishwasher and oven.

Although this kitchen and pantry are very contemporary in style a lot of the federation architectural features have been returned to the space which can be seen in the cornices, skirting boards, archway and the solid brick walls which have been sandblasted to reveal the original brickwork.

It's hard to believe that it's the same property in both the before and after shots because the transformation has been so spectacular. This renovation was completed back in 2015 but photographed only recently and the homeowners are still absolutely thrilled with their kitchen and pantry.
