Out of town clients purchased their dream home and were looking to bring the kitchen up to a standard that reflected the quality of their investment. While they were happy with the layout of the kitchen, it was very tired. It needed a complete refurbishment making use of the latest product and materials on the market.

Working with the existing cabinetry and layout created many challenges throughout the refurbishment. Having to strip out the kitchen and install all of the new internal hardware onsite was very labour intensive and a high level of accuracy was required.

The introduction of the concrete benchtops required some strengthening to cabinetry in places and specific planning was required to overcome the restrictions regarding rail sizes, tap positioning and the physical aspect of moving and positioning the tops for installation.

the result

Adding to the complete new build of the kitchen island, we refurbished all of the cabinetry facings, benchtop surfaces and fitted all new soft closing doors and drawers internally throughout the kitchen. The honed aggregate concrete benchtop was carefully chosen to complement the existing riverstone fireplace.
