SOUTH COOGEE - HouseContemporary Kitchen, Sydney
This kitchen uses long lines to ensure it feels as large as possible. the frame of the recycled timber against the dark stone bench top creates design elements that work together to bring an industrial style kitchen into a family home.

4. Consider raising your bench heightThe standard bench height of 900 millimetres has become a common culprit of back pain for more statuesque souls. These days 920 millimetres is often preferred, and 950 millimetres or even higher is not uncommon. If the head cook in your home is tall, raising your bench height will improve the ergonomics. Likewise, if you’re less than leggy, an 850 millimetre bench height will save sore shoulders when you’re stirring at the stove.This Sydney kitchen utilises different bench heights to hide power points and messy food preparation. The raised height of the recycled-timber frame is more conducive to bar stools and delineates the stone benchtop as a separate work zone.
6. There’s so much love for this industrial-style kitchen island. Raised recycled timber wraps around the benchtop to allow for good storage on both sides, and even helps to hide mess.
What Houzzers are commenting on:
love the inside/outside feel, we defintiely want extra large kitchen with a lot of work surface and storage with a pantry. we would like to have 2 height bar as well-higher with bar stools and storage and then the regular table height to be used as dining table with chairs, the lower level should not have storage
