Small kitchen? No wor­ries! Take a cue from this clev­erly de­signed Mel­bourne apart­ment, which uses pale tones to max­imise the feel­ing of space in its tight floor plan

Real Living (Australia) - - ROOMS -

THE TREND Wel­come to the new minimalism! With its blush pink ac­cents (so on-trend), this kitchen proves pared-back can still feel soft and pretty. WHY IT WORKS Clever de­sign keeps this kitchen look­ing sleek and clut­ter-free. The cook­top and ex­trac­tor fan are con­cealed within an arched al­cove, while the fridge/freezer hides be­hind a laser­cut steel door fin­ished with a 2-pac paint coat­ing in a match­ing pink.

The Co­rian is­land bench has been de­signed to al­low for plenty of stor­age and for the easy stow­ing of small ap­pli­ances. TRY IT IF Your home is open-plan. By dis­guis­ing ap­pli­ances, you won’t feel like you’re al­ways in the kitchen – though, if it looks this good, we wouldn’t mind.

SPLURGE ON Cus­tom-de­signed fit­tings, like the al­cove, door and book­shelf in this kitchen, that will keep your look stream­lined and unique.

SAVE ON Ap­pli­ances. You can choose any fin­ish as they’re hid­den away – white ap­pli­ances are usu­ally cheaper.
