Warm and welcoming Crisp white and wood cabinetry is teamed with a black back-painted glass splashback in this custom project by Kitchen Theme Whatever the function or layout, a new kitchen has to, above everything, appeal to an owner’s sense of style – after all he or she will be greeted by it every single day. Kitchen Theme creates fully furnished, high-end but affordable kitchens with an emphasis on a client’s individual tastes. At the same time, Kitchen Theme designs reflect optimum ergonomic layouts and state-of-the art hardware and appliances. This design was for a young couple wanting a spacious, welcoming look for their new kitchen set within an open-plan living environment, says Kitchen Theme’s lead designer Patrick Huang. “Our white cabinetry faces and white benchtops match the room’s white walls, creating the feeling of space that the client requested. At the same time, wood accents seen on the island, recessed handles, and oven niche link with the Laminex woodlook floor, for a warm, natural aesthetic.” The kitchen boasts European Hafele hardware and ample storage, including a concealed bar area to the left of the inset wine rack, another client request. An integrated fridge is to the right of the rack. Kitchen Theme’s kitchens are crafted in its own cabinet-making facility, keeping costs down and ensuring exacting quality.
