Mint Kitchen Group Project 6
At the very height of style, this Frank Iaria-designed project by Mint Kitchen Group is a meeting of modern luxury and classic elegance. Add to that ingeniously-designed functionality and it’s no surprise that Mint Kitchen Group has Victoria’s most awarded kitchen designers.
The owners of this home are frequent entertainers who wanted a kitchen that was highly functional, but also made a statement and had that ‘wow’ factor. Storage was also an important priority; with two young children they needed not only extra floor space but extra storage space for toys, games and school work as the children get older.
One of the main features of the space is the floor-to-ceiling ‘block’ cabinets with push-to-open fittings and internal drawers. As well as housing the two fully-integrated Liebherr fringes, these cabinets are used as a wall to create a powder room, fully concealed from the living area.
Given both the stained hardwood flooring and Laminex ‘Allure Oak Sandblasted’ timber veneer doors and panels are quite dark, the team felt they need something to open the space visually. As the clients love marble, natural Calcutta marble was introduced on the splashback and benchtops, bringing with it a sense of luxury.
Mint Kitchen Group spent months sourcing just the right slabs of marble, with length and clean patterns throughout, to be able to create the butterfly effect on the island bench and splashbacks.
The team also transformed the awkward space below the stairs adjacent to the kitchen into a user-friendly butler’s pantry, complete with a sink, second microwave and wine fridge.
The completed project provides an abundance of storage areas, ample bench space for prepping and serving and plenty of room for multiple people to be working within the zone. The colours work beautifully within the open-plan space and while stylish, don’t scream, ‘modern’ in this period home.
Mint Kitchen Group’s philosophy is to create kitchens and bathrooms that meet the highest standards of style, function and durability, while maintaining a strong customer focus during the design and installation process.
The team has more than 100 combined years of custom-design experience in the kitchen industry and the talented, award-winning designers have overseen hundreds of kitchen and bathroom projects in their careers.
