Small, Smart Canberra RenovationContemporary Dining Room, Canberra - Queanbeyan
This open plan living area (formerly four separate rooms) is filled with natural light thanks to generous eastern and northern glazing, high ceilings and minimalist finishings. At night, a custom lighting design reflects light off the high ceiling to create ambience and avoid glare.
What Houzz contributors are saying:
The kitchen performs double-duty as a laundry with appliances hidden under the breakfast bar alongside kitchen storage. Broom and pantry storage is concealed behind cabinetry.Our goal was to maximise storage and bench space while maintaining an open and airy feel. We chose white cabinetry to reduce the visual bulk of so much storage in a relatively small space.The outside of the building received a facelift with a new deck, uPVC window and door frames, paintwork, exterior lighting, downpipes and gutters. Keeping the existing timber floors, exterior roof cladding and wall cladding made this a cost-effective, but radical transformation.The design enhances everything that was good about the original home, while addressing all the things that weren’t.
