Contemporary Coastal – Cronulla

We were approached by our lovely customers in the heart of Cronulla to design a Coastal inspired Kitchen, Laundry, Ensuite and Main Bathroom.

Take a look at the before photos to see how this project has evolved. The transformation is dramatic to say the least.

The Kitchen was the area that required the most attention in terms of use of space. The original kitchen felt small and lacked natural light, coupled with the dark cabinetry and lack of workable bench space the kitchen was in serious need of some love. We were able to breath a breathe of fresh air into this space by removing a wall that separated the kitchen and dining room and also by removing the wall adjacent to the stairwell.

By making use of the space under the stairs and relocating the water heater we were able to free up some width in the room which allowed us to incorporate an island into the design. This created much needed work space but also improved the flow through the kitchen. With light now flooding in from the patio doors and the addition of timber slatted, feature stairwell divide, the kitchen now feels light, bright and airy.

The vertical slats in the stairwell carry on a consistent theme from the main kitchen which showcases vertical VJ groove doors. The complimenting timber elements and honed stone benchtops coupled with the blue shades through the tiles and island joinery tie the space together with multiple layers of colour and texture.

The laundry behind the kitchen continues the same theme but is given its own personality through the choice of light timber benchtop and grey/white terrazzo inspired floor tiles, that really capture the beach side feels.

Upstairs in the bathrooms a very neutral palette of whites and greys was used to keep the space feeling clean and fresh. Some warmth was brought into the bathroom with the inclusion of timber vanities and some texture through the handmade subway tiles on the feature walls.
