Keep­ing it cool

A run­down kitchen has been re­placed and the re­sult is much more func­tional, with sleek ap­pli­ance­spp and play­ful pops of colour, writes s Jen­nifer Veer­huis

De­vel­op­ing a de­sign

Can­tilever In­te­ri­ors’ K3 kitchen sys­tem was se­lected as the base for the project.

“Our K3 kitchen sys­tem is typ­i­cally a white palette, with ply ac­cents,” says Can­tilever In­te­ri­ors co-direc­tor Travis Dean.

“The sur­faces cho­sen were a mix of lam­i­nate with ply trim and com­pos­ite stone.”

Open boxes and ply shelv­ing soften the space and are ideal for stor­ing cook­books.

Travis says a wall was ex­tended to al­low tall cabinets on one side, in­cor­po­rat­ing a pantry and built-in oven, speed oven and in­te­grated fridge. Fur­ther cab­i­netry was in­stalled un­der a bank of win­dows, ac­com­mo­dat­ing a dou­ble sink and in­duc­tion cook­top.

One chal­lenge was a struc­tural pole that ran from the ceil­ing to the floor, al­most cut­ting into the space. Rather than try­ing to hide it, the is­land bench was placed 100mm away, giv­ing the pole its own con­text.

“I have man­aged to achieve a retro look in the ap­pli­ances and yet they are up there in terms of tech­nol­ogy.”

Cool splashes of light blue cre­ate a sense of play­ful­ness in the kitchen.
