Balinese Influenced Kitchen

“I don’t want my kitchen to look like anyone else’s.” This was the client’s request to the designer. Influenced by the style of Bali and the client’s own design sense, the new style was dubbed “Julinese” (her name is Julie).

In keeping with the Balinese style, bold design elements were chosen – 6” pyramidal columns stained with a deep java finish, support the 3” thick Purple Dunas granite countertops and the custom glass eating bar. The electrical outlets are housed in these columns.

Further supporting the Balinese theme, the ceiling over the island was raised in a pyramid style – evoking an outdoor feel. Kable lighting illuminates the kitchen.

Topping the cabinets along the walls and the window sill are dark grey 3” thick concrete counters. When the folding windows are open, the sill becomes a 15” deep serving bar for outdoor entertaining.

For ergonomics – the dishwasher and microwave were raised to 42” and 54” comparatively.

Additional Design elements:
Cork floors in Autumn and Black Pepper finish
Custom design cabinet doors support the strong linear lines.
Stainless Steel Farm Sink
Eclipse Architectural Folding window and door
Cheng Design Custom Hood

The company who manufactured this floor is no longer in business. I recommend you talk with your local flooring contractor.

this is neat that the raised part you can put your legs under. Not sure how it would work, but we have a fair bit of space. And we for sure want a raised part with tall stools to sit at, but doesnt have to be like this
