A Sage Kitchen

In the last twelve months I’ve assisted with a number of kitchens. It’s the room that often sells a house so naturally homeowners choose it to renovate and make their own. Sometimes, the client has very specific ideas and all I’m required to do is choose the colour scheme and finishes. Others would like the entire kitchen designed and all the finishes and colours chosen. Either way I enjoy designing kitchens and making sure it suits the homeowner and their family.

This kitchen was due for an overhaul and the client’s didn’t have any firm ideas of what they wanted. They did think they should make the cabinets taller to sit just under the picture rail which would gain them extra storage.

The client loves green and fell in love with Caesarstone Sage when we were choosing colours. We then chose Dulux Linseed as the cabinetry colour which blended beautifully with the benchtop. To my horror, during the design process Caesarstone advised that they were discontinuing Sage. A frantic phone call to Caesarstone ensured a couple of slabs were put on hold until my client was ready to go ahead. Phew! Crisis averted. These things happen but fortunately this time it had a happy ending.

The client also wanted a computer area in the kitchen so homework could be done under the watchful eyes of parents. We extended the bench and added a drawer for pencils and paper and a hidden shelf for powerboards and chargers. EyeTV was added to the computer so it can double as a television when the computer is not in use.

We also created an appliance cupboard to house the jug and toaster to keep the benchtops clear and a full bank of cupboards for the pantry and crockery.

The island bench is yet to see some stools but the wallpaper on the front of the island adds interest and texture.

The clients are thrilled with it all.
