SOUTH COOGEE - House contemporary-kitchen


This kitchen uses long lines to ensure it feels as large as possible. the frame of the recycled timber against the dark stone bench top creates design elements that work together to bring an industrial style kitchen into a family home.

I have recently saved some wide cedar floorboards from a property built in 2011. Could they be used for a bench top like this?

Absolutely! they would look great. The key will be to make sure you use some great products on it to ensure it gives you the wear you want.

The ceilings aren't high on this level of the house, they are 2480mm. The pendants came with a choice of lengths so we were able to set them to the perfect height visually.

Thank you so much! I have a finished level of 70mm difference as that was what worked with the timber I used. But I think you could work with almost any height difference and it would still look great.

What company manufactures the accordian glass doors? Thank you.

The doors are a Lidco system and were manufactured by R&D Installations. Although as long as you ask for bi-fold doors with a commercial or semi-commercial frame you will get this look!

The white on the painted walls is white straight out of the can with no tint in it. I find this the cleanest white to use, anything with a tint will through subtle undertones and if you are looking for that "gallery" style white that gives you the perfect clean contrast with your wenge veneer. Again the cupboards used a matt polyurethane finish that was also the base white that is straight out of a can. I have to say the result is great!

This counter top is an engineered stone. It is an Essa Stone and the colour is French Black. It is FANTASTIC!

Even though this isn't the same as in the photo, Elk has a pendant very close in style. You will find it in the link below. Good luck.
