When Rosanna came to us, she wanted a bespoke kitchen design which complimented the Queen Anne style, Edwardian era of her home. Rosanna’s home has a heritage listing and so she was keen to retain the period look while also creating a very functional kitchen which suits her family’s modern way of life.

It was important to Rosanna to create a painted timber, face frame kitchen with visible hinges, protruding kickers and decorative timber mouldings around the island bench, so that the cupboards look like cabinet-made furniture. We worked very closely with Rosanna to ensure that the details were perfect! The fluted columns used through-out are custom made to match the timber fluting of the mantle-piece in another room. The lamb’s tongue edging matches her antique furniture. The brass hardware was stripped of lacquer and then “antiqued” using vinegar fumes to ensure that the colour was right.

It is always enjoyable to work on a project that requires the design aspect of the kitchen to remain very true to the historical past of the home and this project was no exception.

“I was looking for a cabinet maker who could reproduce an authentic, period style face framed kitchen, with bespoke decorative elements.

The team did a fantastic job on our kitchen, from the design, production and installation. The design and finish was exactly as I had envisaged the kitchen, and the staff are all exceptionally nice people – they tolerated my last minute changes and ideas.

This is our fourth kitchen renovation, and certainly the best end result and our best experience. I would highly recommend the team at Summit Kitchens.”
