Most apartments are equipped with a stock standard square look. A unit on the 21st floor was no different. When our Craftbuilt Kitchens designer, Justine, came in, she found that the existing kitchen was built within 4 walls with only one small entryway. It was going to be an extensive project. Further assessment of the space included plumbing and air conditioner ducts that were positioned in several locations which restricted the simplicity of the design.
The clients wanted their Brisbane apartment kitchen to achieve a stylish modern look with ample storage, modern functionality and a streamline finish. It was going to become a highly functional kitchen with maximum storage. At the same time, it was going to be a stunning focal point for a new open plan living area. This kind of lay-out provides the look and feel of a wider living space. Craftbuilt’s clients were also looking for a unique feature to make it their own with a touch of class.
To accommodate this, Justine designed the unique box mitred features, which border the two ends of the kitchen, and tie in beautifully with the feature colour on the wall of tall cabinetry.
The particular fridge chosen by the clients was extremely deep and they did not want to impede on any walk space. The design allowed for a new nib wall which externally looked like an extension to the hallway. It internally increased the footprint of the kitchen and allowed a step back in the wall to house the fridge’s depth without any impact to the walk space around the kitchen whatsoever.
And what a transformation to the entire living space! It was definitely far from the original stock standard square kitchen they knew.
The clients today proudly admit that anyone visiting their unit for the first time without fail always comment favourably on their stunning kitchen. To date, these clients have already had seven kitchen projects built and designed by Craftbuilt Kitchens. Four of which were for their own homes. Some were for real estate sales in Brisbane. Every time they sell off their home, they commend that the beautiful cabinetry of the kitchen were major assets to the sale.
