French Farmhouse Charm

The kitchen in this new rural home oozes French farmhouse country charm, with its bold tongue-and-groove cabinets lacquered with Resene Avalanche. The look is completed by traditional brass cup handles.

A large window above the back bench lets in plenty of natural light, not to mention the views. The sink is situated on this back bench, instead of a typical island sink. This leaves the island clear and gives more room for bar stools, inviting family and friends to come and sit around it.

The benchtops are Silestone Quartz ‘Eternal Pearl Jasmine’ finished with a solid 50mm depth giving this kitchen its sense of solidity and quality.

The scullery complements the kitchen, with the same tiles and brass cup handles and a combination of subtly textured cabinets under the benches, and woodgrain melamine open shelving above.
