How good is this renovation? Excellent attention to detail, best use of space, creative solutions, and beautiful aesthetics, make this kitchen and attached Alfresco area a joy to behold. The result is the creation of an ideal co-joined space, whether entertaining a crowd outdoors or having an intimate cuppa inside.
The clean Hamptons look was selected to imbue a sense of relaxed elegance, which coordinates beautifully with the Herringbone timber floors, as well as with the existing furniture and style of the house. Using a different colour for the island balances the splashback and adds interest. Ornate ends on the island are toned down by the more modern pendant lights, to create more of a transitional look.
A generous pantry and appliance cabinet, plenty of clever storage, loads of benchspace, as well as a substantial island, make for a highly functional space too.
The Alfresco kitchen is perfect for entertaining, and the design helps to make for easy maintenance and ample flow from one area to the other. The ceiling to floor shades and the fireplace are great additions to make the outdoor area usable under just about any weather conditions. Note how the orientation of both the kitchen and the Alfresco area have a common focal point – the swimming pool area. Clever design indeed!
And the flexibility of the space does not end there – a small breakfast bar creates a convenient division delineating the family TV room from the kitchen, and at the same time, provides a wall against which the lounges can be located. The servery bench provides a handy place for drinks and snacks whilst using that area too. Note the placement of the appliance cabinet is situated so as to be close to all the end-users and has plenty of floor space near it to ensure the space does not feel cramped.
The small round dining table is a pretty addition for day-to-day meals, and was also a good choice to create space and good traffic flow. The island seating creates yet another option for meals or entertaining.
The end result is a highly aesthetic and supremely multi-functional space.
