The Vogue team used their experience and expertise to recommend the initial plan for this inner-city apartment kitchen be turned on its head to best utilise and free up the space and to avoid the kitchen island becoming an obstacle.
The result is a kitchen that is both stylish and functional – creating space and flow.
A cantilevered table with a waterfall end was added to the island, giving the area extra flexibility and allowing for space in the centre of the room. The Hi-Macs bench top runs back into the window, and the glass serves as both a window and a kitchen splashback. The scullery has plenty of storage space and is hidden behind a sliding door, while the extra-wide drawers and the horizontal wood grain of the overhead cupboard help make the kitchen look wider and therefore bigger.
Aged Ash Bestwood Melamine with a Puregrain finish adds warmth and a textured feel.
