Floreat Kitchen Joy | Making Memories

In many family homes the evening meal is created whilst homework is being done, kids are de-briefing on their day and balls are being kicked indoors with the faint shrill of “take that outside” heard over the din. Adding a neighbourhood friend that drops by will create even more happy chaos. So the kitchen really does need to work as a space that partners with the rest of the house to make our modern lives function easier, and this Floreat kitchen with a separate kitchen scullery and laundry has done just that!

When the clients came to Retreat Design their brief was to create a light and bright kitchen space that would function well when entertaining and cooking. The old kitchen was a traditional wood finish which meant that the lovely jarrah floorboards weren’t getting the attention they deserved. A feature window was created over the extended sink area to maximize light. White cabinetry and a subtle stone benchtop gave the jarrah floorboards the chance to really shine as one of the heros of this modernized home.

The original laundry was extended to include a kitchen scullery. A partial nib wall hides the utility area whilst maintaining an easy workflow between this functional area and the kitchen space.

A space that genuinely works for today’s families has to be able to create opportunities for people to come together to share in food, conversation and laughter. The opportunities to create happiness are bountiful in this Floreat kitchen.
