Our clients wanted a modern and functional kitchen, nestled in a small space. The kitchen renovation called for more storage as they were downsizing their home but not compromising their love of cooking.
Cue Lynsie Walsh-McDonnell.
“To start with, the limited footprint meant the gap between the benchtops had to be reduced. Storage was also going to be a huge issue” she observed.
Lynsie based her design on the client’s very specific ideas and requirements. She has put together a range of storage options for the kitchen.
To name a few, ten internal drawers were arranged for the pantry. The high ones are accessed by a hidden stepladder in the toekick. For extra storage, two toekick drawers were placed under the oven. Above the hob, shelving makes room for recipe books and miscellaneous items.

Aesthetic and function is important in the kitchen to bring about that modern feel to a classic home.
Stainless steel tops with large capacity sinks and an anti-spill edge were used. A slide out shelf houses the inverter microwave placed under bench and designed to be pulled out when in use. There is a bulk storage bin on wheels under the microwave. Pull out baskets for fruit and veggies are both practical and look great.

And to give the kitchen a more functional edge, Lynsie designed a barn style sliding door to conceal the TV and stereo facing the living area. The design was inspired by the exposed stainless bolts and rafters in the ceiling.
The end result is a homely, modern and conveniently functional kitchen.
