Brighton: Renovation & ExtensionContemporary Kitchen, Melbourne
What Houzz contributors are saying:
Sky Tiong, founder and director of Sky Architect Studio, says:7. Do get your measurements rightFor overhead cupboards, a depth of between 350 and 400 millimetres is ideal as it creates generous storage while still being shallow enough to allow you to reach right to the back.
1. AustraliaThis Melbourne, Victoria, kitchen built by First Avenue Homes is a study in contrasts that integrates key material and decorating trends in a classic, timeless way. The veining in the smooth Portsea Grey marble and the rounded end of the four-metre-long island bench contrasts against the dark, textural linear cladding on the island bench and range hood. Repeated straight lines in the pendant light and open shelving play off against – and highlight – the arched window into the wine cabinet and oversize round pantry handles. We’ve been seeing an increase in dark palettes used in Australian kitchens, and this space shows how to successfully balance those colours with light features to create a lasting style.
