It is interesting how people differ in a kitchen look within a similar space. It is also interesting to see that a lot of people ‘buck-the-norm’ and do their own thing in today’s world.
It is true that many people mix it up today – with new and old put together.There are many who want a traditional look but also more cutting-edge. So they cut down on the frilly add-ons and stay with a simple profile and use modern non-busy composite stone or plain Corian or similar. Those that have an older home, may have a quite modern kitchen but may have antique or rustic style chairs, tables, lights or handles that give a cross-over feel.
The two kitchens attached show quite clearly what I am talking about. The first kitchen shows the same house with different Owners. One Owner wanted high gloss polyurethane. The other wanted Provincial in a house that was early 1900’s.
The second kitchen is in a Victorian house and has a shaker profile, so as to reflect the era but that is where it stops. The island has 80mm Smartstone Cararra tops. The sink-run has a stainless steel benchtop. The splashback is mirrored smoky glass. The lights are modern and the appliances are state-of-the-art.
These kitchens were designed by BRIAN PATTERSON and it is obvious that both kitchens are lovely and fit the brief of the current Owners.
