We where very fortunate to be involved in a clients renovation project last year of their gorgeous home in a bayside suburb of Melbourne. After many years in the space and the arrival of a couple of children, the clients where ready to undertake a huge renovation to increase the size of their home and to truly make it their own.
Solid timber kitchen cabinetry
The largest part of this project for us was to create a solid timber kitchen that was both functional and beautiful. The recycled Messmate timber used to create this kitchen cabinetry is a beautiful warm brown tone with lots of lovely sap lines. The cabinetry was created so that a single piece of timber went across the whole face of the wall of cupboards creating a beautiful flow. The island bench featured a bookcase at one end to store and display lots of beautiful items.
Solid timber bathroom vanities
The timber theme of the kitchen cabinetry was continued into the bathroom. The two bathrooms and powderroom all had custom made timber vanities. To maximise storage in the family bathroom, an asymmetrical vanity was create to make use of every bit of space. This freestanding corner vanity combines drawers with open shelving for display. In the powder room, a small vanity was created to the exact profile of the basin to mimimise the impact of the cabinetry on the space.
Solid timber laundry cabinetry
The timber joinery theme continues in to the laundry with lots of storage. As this room is visible from the kitchen, the same design concept was continued. The homeowners very carefully considered what function they required for the storage so that no space was wasted. Our job was to take these functional requirements and make the joinery look beautiful. The recycled Messmate timber used in the cabinetry continues with the flowing grains across the wall of cupboards.
Bay window seating joinery
The clients included in their design a modern bay window with bench seats and integrated storage to make the most of an unusually shaped space. This area has been converted to the ideal craft corner and breakfast nook. The design features black faced ply and recycled Messmate timber. The lift up lids creates lots of useful storage space below.
