What Houzz contributors are saying:
Cabinet colourIt’s a classic colour that will never go out of style, so it’s no surprise that 59 per cent of Australian renovators choose white as the colour for their kitchen cabinets. Australians are more partial to white cabinets than any other country surveyed across the Houzz stable (Houzz now operates in 14 countries across the globe).Russia and Ireland were the least likely to choose white cabinets. Renovators in these countries also spent the least of any of the surveyed countries.The next most popular cabinet colours in Australia are grey and black.Read more about how Australian kitchen renovations compare internationally
Add striking lighting Whether you invest in a stunning designer light fitting or you’re simply hanging an elegant pendant, a feature light will make a big change to the overall scheme by bringing in a renewed focus. The key is to go big and interesting for maximum impact.
Kitchen at a GlanceWho lives here: Oliver and Rachel Lukeis, and their children, Ajay and Ariana, plus Casper the dog.Location: Brighton, VictoriaSize: 19 square metresDesign and Decoration: Susan Cleveland from Susan Cleveland DesignCleveland was referred to the couple by their cabinet makers. “Oliver and Rachel chose Williams Cabinets because of their knowledge and quality construction of cabinetry design, and I was thrilled to be asked to represent Williams as their designer on this project,” says Cleveland. “My ethos behind every project is to achieve a unique and individual design. While I favour clean lines and balance within a functional space, I always strive to reflect the personality of the home and the clients.”The overall brief presented to Cleveland was very clear; create a ‘wow’ kitchen, encompassing a unique design that reflects the clients’ differing tastes, all within a tight budget. So Cleveland got to work.Units: Williams Cabinets
