Hamptons with a Twist
Discover the kitchen & laundry ‘must haves’ from one of the builder’s on The Block.
Homeowners Aidan and Lizzy have transformed their tiny 1960s U-shaped kitchen into a large, open and light-filled oasis with butler’s pantry and an adjoining laundry space. You may recognise Aidan as one of the site managers on Australia’s favourite home renovation shows The Block, so he is no stranger to renovations. However this particular transformation was extra special as he and wife Lizzy were creating their dream family home for themselves and their four young children.
What was once a tiny two and a half bedroom brick townhouse, is now a brand new, contemporary home that really makes a design statement. The kitchen was central to the transformation. ‘Our whole house was really designed around kitchen, explains Aidan. ‘It’s a real family kitchen – we’re in it together all the time’.
They have created a modern Hamptons feel by using Freedom Kitchens shaker style Sierra White Matt and Black cabinetry, Volpato handles, timber doors and oak flooring. In the heart of the space is a stunning Caesarstone® island benchtop in Statuario Maximus that is more than 3.6 metres long- easily ensuring that the family can meet together as well as entertain.
It’s also the finer details that stand out to Aidan & Lizzy, such as the Walnut Cutlery Inserts which include a cutlery tray, knife holder and foil holder ensuring organisation is a breeze.
