Smith & Smith Kitchens Project 17
A finalist for the Best Kitchen $35,000–$60,000 category at the 2018 Furnishing Industry Association of Australia (FIAA) Industry Awards, this contemporary kitchen was expertly designed by Sue Bracy from Smith & Smith Kitchens. Showcasing a lavish island bench with a beautiful Calacatta Gold top from Lithostone, the space exudes elegance and charm.
The island’s base features Dulux ‘Whisper White’ paint, which offers a striking contrast with the ‘Hardened Steel’ finish on the rear cabinetry. Showcasing Smith & Smith Kitchens’ two-pack flat-panel doors, the provincial-style cabinetry provides an abundance of storage space.
The highly functional cabinetry is fitted with Blum TANDEMBO X antaro soft-close mechanisms, drawer runners, and Hettich sliding and folding door systems for easy access. lluminated by dimmable LED lights, a 1.6-metre-wide pantry hides an abundance of storage space behind matching concertina doors. A separate appliance cabinet was also installed to ensure the kitchen remains free of clutter.
On the opposite side of the cabinetry wall, an integrated Fischer & Paykel French-door fridge achieves seamless visual appeal. An undermount rangehood from Sirius Australia and a high-quality dishwasher are also completely concealed by cohesive profiled doors.
Two undermount ovens from NEFF and a flexi-induction cooktop are conveniently positioned between the floor-toceiling cabinetry for streamlined food preparation. The rear benchtop and splashback feature the same material as the island to create balance in the space.
