Eglinton StreetContemporary Kitchen, Sydney
A simple white kitchen with integrated fridge and skylight. The kitchen joinery continues the full width and creates an opening that is a transition from the old house to the new extension.

What Houzz contributors are saying:
Automatic skylightA skylight may be opened via the touch of a wall switch, remote control button, or even sensor. A sensor-controlled skylight can automatically close when it detects moisture or rain; it can open when the room reaches a certain temperature; and it can be programmed to open at preset times.
Choose the right shadesIf you look closely, there are an endless amount of white shades to choose from, which, more often than not, baffle people from the very start.Shades of white can be separated into two main categories: warm and cool. Many whites have an undertone of yellow or pink, which fall into the warm category; whites with blue undertones are cooler. Keep an eye out for these undertones when choosing white materials for your kitchen, and be careful not to mix shades of white that have different undertones as they will clash.If your kitchen is very dark and feels cold due to the fact that it doesn’t get much natural light, consider a white shade with a subtle warm yellow or pink undertone to make your kitchen feel warmer. An ivory or very mild cream white would work great, too.
