Stephanie’s previous kitchen was tired and dated. There was not enough space, and as Stephanie pointed out, the kitchen was too small for the large household residing in her 5 bedroom family home!

Modern Kitchen Waterways Before Shot
Stephanie’s kitchen was cluttered because the builder’s spec design didn’t accommodate for the way Stephanie and her family used the kitchen.

Stephanie’s home was built to builder specifications and she felt the kitchen design was poor and limited her use of the whole kitchen. She found it frustrating to find anything in the pantry and had limited working bench space – many of her appliances lived on the bench making the area look messy and crowded.

Modern Kitchen Waterways After Shot
Our customised design meant that Stephanie has a designated place for everything she uses in her kitchen.

Stephanie’s wish list included a walk in butler pantry, bigger island bench, more storage and easier access to everything she uses on a regular basis. Stephanie wanted to reduce messiness in the kitchen and create more space to entertain and move freely while cooking. On Stephanie’s husband Mark’s wish list, was dedicated access to his wine fridge, liquor cabinet and glasses.

The butler’s pantry provides a functional space for all of Stephanie’s pantry essentials.

When designing Stephanie’s new kitchen, we knew a clean look with simplicity and elegance was just the beginning of realizing Stephanie’s dream kitchen. He created space within the kitchen to hide away all the appliances that had previously been inhabiting Stephanie’s bench space and incorporated a massive island bench for cooking preparation (Stephanie is an amazing cook – we know because she invited us over for dinner!). Deep drawers were incorporated to cater all the various containers, pots, tableware and baking trays and a wine fridge was built into the island bench for easy access. Lighting fixtures under the cabinets give a soft flow in the night and even the day time.

Stephanie is now enjoying a kitchen that is tailored specifically for her requirements.  She has a large sink making washing her woks, pots and tall vases so much easier.  She has clear access to everything she needs including her pull out spice rack drawers, large cutlery and utensil drawers.

Stephanie is much happier cooking in her new kitchen!
