Warner in our Essendon showroom is a luxurious kitchen design that embodies elegance, functionality, and sophistication. Our focus was to create a streamlined, minimalistic, and uncluttered space that offers maximum usability and convenience.
The main highlight of this kitchen is the backlit stone, which truly shines and demands attention, thanks to the clever use of black on the doors, benchtops, and splashbacks. This design choice allows the stone to be the star of the show, adding an air of opulence to the space.
Functionality was also a key consideration in the design process. We wanted to ensure that the space was not only aesthetically pleasing but also practical and user-friendly. The pantry-come-appliance centre to the left of the sink and dishwasher, as well as adequate space between the sink and hotplate, allows the user much room to prepare and cook meals. The use of drawers, rather than doors, ensures that everything is easily accessible, including the pantry proper on the wall oven fridge side, which features roll-out shelves for maximum use of space.
The second oven, a combi steam oven, provides additional separate cooking zones and eliminates the need for a microwave, which in turn allows for more drawers on the island. We also included a kicker drawer for storing trays and platters that might otherwise be stored in the bottom of a pot drawer, which would be cluttered and difficult to access.
From an aesthetic point of view, we included a downdraft hotplate that allowed for a cabinet with glass shelves, which features subtle touches of brushed gold backs. When lit, this design element adds a beautiful feature just above eye level or when seated at the island bench.
Overall, this luxurious kitchen design combines functionality, practicality, and sophistication, making it the perfect space for any discerning home chef.
