Cool Calm & Country

Sometimes a renovation is the time to rethink your home layout and go right back to the drawing board.

This kitchen was designed in a different part of the home to its predecessor, and fits into this space perfectly.

It’s a modern take on a traditional country kitchen, and the duck-egg blue cabinetry colour (Resene Nepal) gives it a unique cool, calm ambience.

The large double butlers sink is undermounted in the polished Caesarstone benchtop. The island has a large overhang to allow for bench seats, giving the cook ample room on the kitchen side.

Internal drawers are a great solution for kitchen drawers. They provide the visual effect of sleek, pared back cabinets, meanwhile retaining the functionality of cutlery, utensil and cup top drawers.
