Luxury designer kitchen steals spotlight from spectacular city views!

Breathtaking, sublime and distinctively timeless.  Are we describing the magnificent skyline view or this phenomenal kitchen recently completed for our fabulous clients in Kangaroo Point?  DEFINITELY BOTH!

At Woodstock, we specialise in creating bespoke kitchens for unique and specialised spaces where the upmost consideration and quality of every detail is paramount.  That’s why from the initial design through to installing the finishing touches, we absolutely loved working on every stage of this dynamic and sophisticated kitchen.  And the results speak for themselves as you can see in this video.

While the splendour and appeal of the city view is undeniable, the aim of this kitchen design was to enhance the overall beauty and liveability of this blue-chip apartment.  Practicality and user enjoyment led the design brief and this highly functional space now impresses as a glamorous entertainer and a centralised hub that has exceeded the everyday needs of the owners and increased the resale appeal of the property for the future.   

Along with capturing the view, space in this apartment is also premium.

So like a luxury yacht, every square centimetre counts and it was important that the available floor and wall areas were carefully considered and best utilised. The orientation of kitchen’s preparation and serving areas was positioned relative to the view sightline and the sleek contemporary design was used to create a vast open feeling with maximum storage options.

An ideal design solution for smaller zones is the semi galley kitchen layout and this clever space saver is the secret to this kitchen’s success. The two parallel benches allow ample space for cleaning and cooking while still providing storage for everything a home chef could desire.  We also extended the island benchtop to double as a bar – equally ideal for a casual breakfast or cheeky cocktail.

Flooded with spectacular natural light during the day and the even more sensational metro glow in the evening, it made perfect sense to install a huge mirror splashback. This not only enhanced the perceived size of the space but continued the city view right across the kitchen.  The ultimate artwork – a stunning mural that changes hour to hour.

And whether it’s reading food labels or honing your knife skills, task lighting is vital when cooking. Downlights were specified for this project as they provide fantastic coverage and still give you control over the ambience levels created. Highlighting the integrated display niches, the elegance of Stefano Orlati purple LEDs feature the owner’s favourite pieces. This subtle addition also completely transforms the apartment in the evening, creating an elegant space for relaxing.

Design elements aside, the true beauty of this kitchen was achieved through the understated and refined selection of materials and finishes.  

The balance of dark and light contrast colouring against the modern and natural elements creates both harmony and balance. The timeless sophistication of Italian timber veneer combined with high gloss 2 pac white cabinetry, dark stone benchtops and stainless steel accents alongside the warmth of timber flooring will retain high appeal for many years to come.

The slick handleless drawers create a streamlined look and also provide increased usable storage than standard cupboards allow.  The staggered layout design, with drawers increasing in size as they go down, eliminates the need to reach into the back corners of cupboards.  While the differing heights allow you to easily separate your larger pots from smaller cups and bowls keeping everything organised and able to be seperated according to function.  

And as you would expect with all the best luxury kitchens, this one is elegantly appointed with integrated European appliances and accessories, along with all the finer details that take it from special to spectacular. Boasting a long wish list of kitchen mod-cons, from the Miele oven to the centralised flush mounted sink with pull out mixer and ZIP tap, right down to the stainless steel cutlery inserts.

Just as with this project, all Woodstock Cabinetry customers benefit from our in-depth knowledge of the latest industry trends and technologies in design, materials and innovative systems.  We believe kitchens should be as functional as they are beautiful and that even the simple act of opening a drawer should bring pleasure to the owner. This is yet another reason why we use state-of-the-art movements systems like GRASS drawer runners (the best undermount drawer slide on the market!).  But just leave those little details to us, all you need to do is book your design consultation via the contacts page and discuss the dream kitchen Woodstock Cabinetry can create for you.

We also built the stunning television and fireplace feature seen in this video – so look out for more details in another upcoming article… just in time for winter.
