Spot the difference. When not in use, the panelled cabinetry can be closed up to hide the stove, ovens and fridge, allowing the island to truly shine.See more of this kitchen
6. Somewhere to hide the mess Let’s face it, cooking and entertaining create huge messes, no matter how clean we try to be. When you’re running late and you know people are about to walk in the door, how much calmer would you be if you had somewhere to throw all your dirty knives, bowls, chopping boards and the like? This type of set-up allows you to close off the ‘back end’ of the kitchen and simply present a beautiful, clean and streamlined ‘face’ to your friends and family.
Room at a GlanceWho lives here: A couple and their teenage daughterLocation: Woollahra, Sydney, NSWSize: 12.8 square metresDesign: Minosa During the renovation of this home, the kitchen was marked for its original position in the rear corner of the property. But making a late and drastic change to the floor plan, Minosa repositioned it in a more central part of the home. Now it is parallel to the base of the stairs and adjacent to the formal lounge and front entry.
