When homeowner Ben purchased a charming apartment within an Art Deco building located in Potts Point in Sydney, he had a clear vision for transforming the kitchen into a multifunctional entertainers delight. He enlisted the help of Freedom Kitchens to bring this vision to life, and the end result is an uber chic and modern kitchen brimming with storage and even a hidden laundry!
Step inside and discover more about this amazing space- there’s more than meets the eye!
Set within a charming 1930s Art Deco apartment, the original kitchen was small and lacked storage. “I knew exactly what I wanted to achieve with my new kitchen, explains Ben. “I wanted to make the space for the kitchen larger to create the perfect entertaining space. I also wanted to take risks with the colour scheme with black and concrete tones.”
The existing kitchen featured a simple L-shaped design which allowed room for a small dining set. However this design didn’t maximise the space or storage, nor did it allow for much entertaining.
Ben knew that he wanted his new Freedom Kitchen to be modern with an industrial edge, and showcase a colour scheme that reflected this. Focusing on black, concrete and brass tones, joinery in Alaskan Black Ultramatt and Luxe Beton Texture have been paired with grey marble-look benchtops and hand-cut grey subway tiles for the splashback.
Pops of metallics, seen in the selection of the brass-look tap and our Brushed Brass Anodised Aluminium 40mm handles, add the perfect amount of luxury. Placed within the matte black cabinetry next to the fridge, an oven and microwave complement the black glass cooktop to their left and are keeping with the other black elements.
The look has been kept sleek and streamlined with the Luxe Beton cupboards featuring a mixture of Touch Catch and Volpato handles. Both the fridge and dishwasher have been integrated, and a pull-out rangehood selected to further reinforce the design’s clean lines.
