A retro kitchen renovation

It was important to our clients to honour the era of this family home. The kitchen was the original 1950's so from the start our clients vision was to retain the look and feel of this bygone era. The family also wanted to have some fun creating something that was a bit different to the modern contemporary kitchens popular today.

Inspiration Comes From

The main inspiration was the bench top and overall look of our original 50’s kitchen. They decided to keep the same retro look and colours symbolic of the period along with re-using elements such as the original handles. They loved the built-in glass display shelves and stainless-steel edging on the original bench tops, so these were features they wanted to incorporate, albeit in an updated version.

The result

The family are loving the modern updates like having an Island bench, gas hobbs and loads more workable space! Colours are on trend and surfaces so easy to manage in this busy family home.
