• Farmhouse style kitchen with timber and black island in the middle of the room

Kangarilla New Modern Farmhouse Kitchen

The clients from Kangarilla wanted a kitchen that was sleek and modern yet warm and inviting for entertaining. They wanted to achieve a harmonious blend of modern appliances and internal hardware with external features to replicate a 1930’s rustic style. They also desired long elegant lines finished with moldings at the base of the island with added detail harking back to the federation era.

The clients wished for their kitchen design to:

  • Have a rustic feel with a modern twist
  • Incorporate timber
  • Use a neutral colour palette with a bold feature colour
  • Incorporate a feature light made from an old cow’s trough
  • Include soft close drawers and a bespoke canopy

Design Features

To create the aged and chunky timber look; we sanded, wire brushed out and stained with mondo rock white over black half strength and finished with a 5% clear lacquer. To give a chunky appearance we layered 2 pieces of timber on top of one another. The top piece was 10mm smaller in diameter to create a step down look.

To create the bespoke canopy we designed it to look like an old fire place area and then worked closely with the builder to create the feature out of gyprock. We made the moldings’ and corbels around the canopy out of timber; that were sanded and then sprayed in 2pac.

Pantry melamine shelves were designed so client’s limestone feature wall that continued into the next room was visible. To achieve this we had the white melamine shelves on white aluminum U channels with 50×50 Oregon post supports.

An open storage unit with a feature American Oak base was used to create storage for cookbooks above the fridge.

The basic colour palette ties in with the polished concrete floor, however by adding a pop of colour such as the deep blue cupboards that match the feature wall and window frames, highlight features such as the range hood and American oak floating shelves.

The quirky cow’s trough suspended as a light case and the rustic support beams create an inviting and warm space.

This provincial yet fun and rustic style kitchen in Kangarilla is a statement in itself.
