Over the past year there has been a bit of a resurgence of “old-world style” kitchens. Here are two very different examples of this style. In both of these kitchens I employed similar design aesthetics, but produced very different results.
These types of kitchens are still very new to me, so expect to see them become more and more refined (or complex) as we continue to produce them in the near future.
The latest kitchen design worthy of a gallery on Tumblr. Enjoy
This is a high-end kitchen I helped to design.
It features double thickness black pearl granite and white Caesarstone benchtops. Cabinetry it lacquered and features soft-closing hinges and drawer runners throughout.
The glass sliding door leads to a full working scullery with second sink and benchtop.
We are entering this design into a national awards show, so hopefully it’s a winner.

This is a kitchen I helped design last year that I really like and has been replicated a few times since.
The main feature of the design is the differing island bench top heights, which help to create a heavy and grounded look.
I also think the colour choices work particularly with the sparse decor of the surrounding room.
A kitchen I designed and entered in the National NKBA competition back in 2007.
